Our fully insulated garden buildings make for the perfect home studio. Whether you’re a musician needing a space to practice at any volume you like without disrupting your neighbours or an artist needing a creative space to escape to. We can design a garden building to suit your creative needs.
A Home studio could describe so many uses. Having built a recording studio for a musician recently, brought back memories of working for the BBC, Central TV and an A-list recording artist. Using differing materials we learnt how to reduce noise.
Dance studios can benefit from our super supported flooring whilst fitness studios encompass numerous keep fit pursuits including gym, pilates, yoga and weights.
“One vision for me would be the likes of Van Gogh or Turner in their studios, busy creating images to share and make our world a brighter place. I guess our understanding of the word studio is a space to relax, invest, create or work, you may even have other uses.” Andy says.
Mandy has spent time in art studios honing her skills whilst Andy’s pottery skills resulted in a funky gnome in a pottery studio.
Acoustic insulation benefits many uses of a home studio. You may be a broadcaster or participate in regular zoom meetings. In this instance keeping outdoor noise outside could be crucial. Hobbies such as drumming and a business such as teaching guitar could require that you keep noise in. Our walls contain a sandwich filling of noise-absorbing insulation which works both ways.
You may then wish to consider your glass options. Kingdom Acoustic glass reduces noise transfer through our already efficient double glazing by as much as another 13 dB. With solid walls inside, reverberation (the vibrating pulse of sound waves) can also affect noise levels inside. Our resident expert Andy can advise on the best and often, most cost-effective options for your use. He has extensive experience in providing acoustic options for TV and music recording studios.
Features of a home studio
Raw finished walls give a cost saving against our popular plastered walls and are ideal for those heavy-knock pursuits and hobbies.
Daylight plays a major part in artwork. Each garden room is individually designed, allow as much light ingress as you wish through as many or few windows and doors as you like. Our internal blinds help with shading, light reduction and privacy.
Our lighting options are flexible with standard spotlights switchable from bright to soft lighting along with dimmer switches.
Painted walls and sturdy floor coverings are ideal for even the messiest of your home hobbies or business needs.
Our home studios are ideal for:
- Aspiring musicians and professional musicians
- DJs and producers
- Music teachers
One thing every studio has in common is the need to be a creative environment. We believe that our garden buildings do just that, whether for your inspiration or a visiting guest or client.
It feels like we are presented with enquiries every week for an ever-increasing new number of uses for our garden buildings. Whatever you have in mind, we would love to hear from you. Our extensive history may provide fresh ideas that would suit your project.
Why chose Kingdom Rooms?
We learnt from the past. Timber buildings of a bygone era 400 years ago elevated timber off the damp, cold ground to help many of them last until today. Our ‘No Concrete’ base systems do exactly the same.
We have several buildings on display so you can see and learn how different buildings can last longer and outperform others. No professionally edited photos creating a hard-to-follow image.
We normally design your building whilst sitting in your home. We create a full visual of your garden building combined with a fixed price quotation for your peace of mind.
Our buildings are created with what we believe are the lowest carbon footprints you will find. Most by-products are recycled and have a Made in Britain accreditation.
OK, our buildings are as solid as you will find but you will find us flexible. Doing a job properly means we will not cut corners and will not be ‘cheap’. We have however put much effort into reducing costs and waste and are certainly competitively priced.
Our customers tell us that a visit to our show site is invaluable. Seeing actual buildings beats images on the web hands down and we can show you the options available. You also see the differences between building methods, how buildings perform differently, variations on lifespan and why costs vary. Even if you order elsewhere, this guidance can be invaluable.
Site design visit
If you like what you see and you ask, we can then visit your home to see the site and from your ‘likes’ we can usually design and price your building whilst we sit with you. Seeing and hearing your exact needs helps us build to your specification or budget whilst collecting unique site data should you wish to proceed.
Order & survey
Our fixed price quotation contains much detail, vital to sharing with our whole team once you order. Once a deposit is received we return to the site to carry out a detailed survey and ‘stake out’ your building location. Our team will then communicate key stages of the build in more detail on the ‘Procedures’ page of our website for guidance. Stage payments will be requested at key points with a balance paid at the end.
We try to deliver materials in advance to allow for a prompt (and sometimes early) start. Generally, we start 4-6 weeks from order and our build time is around 2 weeks. We take steps to reduce disturbance to your household and property with our office and team on-site communicating and involving you at key stages. Your 10-year Insurance Underwritten guarantee details are released for registration once the final payment is received.
Home studio FAQ

Yes. Your studio can be for the benefit of arts and crafts, music or leisure.
Garden studios can often be 50% of your garden area but let’s be real, that could be a little overpowering in size.

This means minimal waste as fewer materials are used meaning there’s less to deliver, resulting in a quick, clean site build.
Insulation at its best
Our walls contain up to 20 times the insulation of other buildings for lower heating bills.
Wood be good
Our refined methods allow us to keep timber use to a minimum. All materials are separated and recycled, with as little as one rubble sack of waste per order.
Using British Made and local materials allows us to reduce the carbon footprint of materials whilst supporting our economy.
Trading from our garden office means no separate sales site and travelling between. Our clever show model designs reduced the need for a large number of display models.
