A List of Brilliant Ideas to Make Your Garden Log Cabin the Most Useful and Appealing Space

April 28, 2021


The garden log cabin has been making waves among homeowners, and the UK already has its fair share of garden log cabin enthusiasts. If you are wondering about the difference between a garden log cabin and a regular garden shed, well, let’s just say a garden log cabin is a garden shed on a higher level. Garden log cabins are more luxurious spaces where you can relax and enjoy yourself, and you can style and design it according to how you want to use the space. Many homeowners have turned their garden log cabins into special retreats and spas, and some have also turned them into offices, workshops, DIY spaces, gyms, entertainment centres, games rooms, reading corners, playrooms, and more. But what else can you do to make your garden log cabin the most useful and appealing space? Here’s a list of brilliant ideas for you.

  1. Pay attention to the windows and doors

If you want to ensure the functionality and usefulness of your garden log cabin, consider the small details that make a difference. Your garden log cabin’s windows, for instance, should be fully operable, allowing you to adjust the ventilation and temperature in the cabin. You can even add features such as ledges to the windows so you can display potted plants. The doorway can also be more special, and some log cabin owners have opted for reclaimed or salvaged doors or doors painted in bright colours. If you want something more picturesque, you can opt for French windows and doors that also let in more sunlight!

  1. Don’t forget counter space

Counter space can be essential as well, and garden log cabins can benefit from more than enough space on the counters where you can work on your DIY projects, write, draw, read, and eat. If your log cabin is big enough, you can add a larger counter that comes with overhead shelves or cupboards underneath for extra storage. It would be best if you can cover the worktops in a durable kind of material, such as galvanised metal sheets or copper. You can make the space more functional by adding shelves on the walls and installing cubbyholes in the corners.

  1. Bring in the light!

The lighting of your garden log cabin can also make a difference, and this is something that you shouldn’t neglect. Remember, however, that to have electricity in your log cabin as well as running water, your council may require a building permit, so ask your local council to confirm. Invest in good lighting fixtures for the interior, be it a rustic chandelier, lanterns, floor lamps, and even industrial lighting if you’re planning to turn your garden log cabin into a workshop. It pays to bring in natural lighting, too, so make sure your log cabin has your desired windows and doors to let in light during the day.

  1. Make it comfy

Of course, nothing is more luxurious than adding a few comfy and cosy touches here and there. You can designate a corner of the cabin for reading and lounging around, and you can include benches with cushioning, a sturdy and compact couch or sofa, wicker chairs, and a desk. It’s important to come up with a place that nourishes your well-being, and with the right elements, you can do just that.
