Should you see something you want to change, just let us know, we then tinker with the plans to make sure your needs are met. Once satisfied, we can book in our team and begin turning your empty space into an alluring garden beauty room.

We send the same team to your property each day of the build to help foster a rapport and keep an air of continuity, we believe that ensuring there is a bond between our clients and engineers is so important.

With a 10-year structural guarantee, your garden salon is built to last and withstand the elements for years to come. We’ll even attend up to three months after its construction to help rectify any minor issues you may have discovered.

Benefits of a garden beauty salon

Benefits of a garden beauty salon

You may have been considering renting a space within the town, city, or village that you are based in but astronomical rents, lack of parking options, and the local competition may make that a step too far. Especially if you are starting a brand-new business. Asking Timber Rooms to construct your garden beauty room means you can reap the rewards of a host of benefits that allow you to help push your business further and retain a more consistent work-life balance.

Whether new or established as a business in the beauty trade, the benefits we show below mean that a garden room beauty salon stands to give you results a high street store will not:

  • No rent– Using your garden as a base, saves on the costly rents charged on vacant properties on high streets or shopping centres.
  • No commute– Saving you money on petrol, train fares or bus fares and avoiding the stress of delays, you can simply step out the back door at home and be in your workplace within seconds.
  • Trade all day long, all year long– Where shopping centres trade to specific hours and high streets lose their footfall at certain times, you can benefit from trading around the exact needs of the people who wish to book your beauty services. With our rooms insulated and equipped with heating or air con you can trade all year long without fear of either you or your customers feeling uncomfortable when the weather turns too!
  • Your business, your building- Your new workplace built by Timber Rooms is designed by you. Everything you need and everything you want is factored into the build, meaning no need for the costly refurb works an existing property may need to facilitate your needs. You choose what goes where from the doors and windows to the workstations and wash basins. You are in control and make your garden beauty salon come to life in your vision.
  • Private space- Located in your garden, customers can feel even more relaxed, especially if your garden is as stunning as your garden room salon! Away from the hustle and bustle of a busy town centre, clients can relax in your bespoke waiting room before heading into the studio for their treatments. The idyllic surrounds of your garden could well be the key to securing more custom!
  • Work-life balance – Perhaps one of the main reasons you have chosen to have your business based at home is that it enables you to bring a little balance to your life. You remain to keep work separate from home life but you are never too far from either should you want to take on extra work or have an extended break.

And remember, with the money saved on rent and other associated costs, you can put more into your marketing campaigns to help drive your business forward.

Common garden salons we have people ask us to create include:

  • Nail bars
  • Tanning studios
  • Makeup studios
  • Yoga retreats
  • Hairdressing studios
