Insulation in your garden house
If you have seen a garden house that you like for the children, it is important that you also look at the insulation.
Children play a lot on the floor they build a train track, a mega building is being built or they are playing house. If the children sit on the floor a lot, it is nice that the floor doesn’t get cold. You can prevent this by insulating your floor.
If you choose to also install heaters, it is also useful to install wall insulation, this keeps the heat inside and then it does not immediately disappear outside. You can also choose to install roof insulation. Of course you are free to choose which form of insulation you choose, but it is nice that when the children are playing they are also warm.
Combine a garden house!
If you have a lot of space for a garden shed, you can combine it with a storage space for your belongings, such as bicycles or garden tools. By placing a partition wall in your garden shed you have a storage space for your belongings and for the children a place where they can play undisturbed, without anything or anyone getting in the way.
You can also combine a garden shed for your children with a veranda, by adding a veranda to your garden shed you can sit outside under the veranda and your children can play in their own spot. You can also keep an eye on them. Another advantage of adding a veranda is that you can store your children’s outdoor toys dry, so the pedal pullers, balls, bicycles, scooters and go-karts can be kept dry and tidy under the veranda.
Where do you place your garden shed?
When placing your garden shed, it is also important to take a number of factors into account. First of all, it is important to consider whether you need to apply for planning permission, for the garden house you want to build. Each municipality has different requirements for this, so check with your own municipality whether and from which sizes you need to apply for a permit. It is also so annoying that you have built a garden house for the kids and it has to be demolished again.
It is also important that you look closely at where you install your garden house in your garden, you don’t want your children to get cold while playing, but they shouldn’t melt away in the summer either. We recommend that you take a good look at how the sun rotates in your garden and on which side the sun is on a lot to place as few windows as possible. it is also good to see that there is enough daylight entering your garden house.
