Spring is around the corner with seven-spot ladybirds, daffodils and snowdrops emerging across the country. Naturally our attention is turning to gardening and planning what to do with our outdoor space.

Research by The Motley Fool found that adding a quality garden room is the best way to add value to a property, by an average of 5%. Most garden rooms can be built with full insulation, double glazing, electrical and internet connections for all year round use, and all without the need for planning permission.

Recent Land Registry data shows the average price paid for a house in the UK is £312,415 and adding a garden room could potentially boost this by up to £15,600. With installations often costing around £10,000, it provides a fast return on investment and instantly makes the property more desirable.
