Why choose an octagonal summer house for your garden?
Octagonal designs can often be hard to find from traditional providers of sheds and garden or summer houses. So you’ll be pleased to know we have put together a great selection for you to choose from. With free delivery and a range of sizes available, you will soon have the ideal summer house you have always wanted – and something a little quirky, too.
Of all the summer houses you could choose from, an octagonal design may not be the first one that comes to mind. However, there are plenty of good reasons why you should give the idea some serious consideration, as you will see here.
Certainly, if you want something completely different in your garden, an octagonal garden building has a lot to recommend it. This is a feature – something that will stand out and be commented on by everyone who sees it. They also tend to feel very spacious indeed. Once you have the doors open and you’re sitting inside in your comfy chair, you’ll be amazed at how roomy and appealing they are.
If you are wondering whether this type of summer house would be right for you, there are some perks you should definitely be aware of. For example, many designs have windows on four sides. With the door taking up another side, this means there are only three of the eight panels that are purely wood (usually tongue-and-groove). You can just imagine the amount of light that will flood into your summer house, no matter where you position it in your garden. However, a nice sunny position will enable you to make the very best use of it throughout the day during the spring and summer months.
Watch out for special features that come with many summer houses too. octagonal designs often have window boxes provided on two or four sides, depending on the individual design. Other appealing touches include antique-style hinges and handles, which look beautiful against the finish of the wood.
Octagonal summer houses also come in a variety of sizes. Even the smaller size – a 6’ x 6’ model – is very spacious and cosy inside, although you can of course opt for a bigger size if you wish. Can you imagine how stunning an 8’ x 8’ model would look settled into its surroundings in your garden?
Even though the summer houses are dip-treated to provide a lasting finish to the wood, you may wish to stain yours to provide just the finish you require. You can also make it your own by planting flowers in any window boxes that come with it (and of course, you can always make your own if not). Trellis attached to the exterior can provide a frame for climbing plants to grow around. Furthermore, a path leading up to your octagonal summer house can lead guests to your well-kept secret – a beautiful sanctuary in your garden.
