The Green Rooms, Surrey

Set in a tranquil Surrey garden, garden room specialists The Green Rooms have crafted a bespoke home gym, featuring Silvered Oak Natureffect Aqualock laminate flooring.

In the Surrey countryside, homeowner Nick was looking to create a sustainable and secluded gym in his garden, and after getting a recommendation from landscapers JM Landscape and Design, Nick knew that The Green Rooms were the perfect team for this job. With over 7 years of experience in creating eco-friendly garden rooms in Surrey, owner James Austin knew exactly how to turn Nick’s vision of a home gym-come-storage-area and turn it into a beautiful living space that sits effortlessly in the country garden. With a strong belief in providing a superior finish, the Green Rooms team opted for our durable Natureffect Laminate in the colour Silvered Oak, offering an uplifting finish to the design.

“These are not standard modular garden rooms; they offer bespoke design options without restrictions on shape or cladding, tailoring each room to fit the specific garden, style, and needs of the client. Whether it's integrating a hidden storage area or building a golf simulator room, The Green Room delivers. “

With a passion for creating bespoke garden rooms, founder James curated a highly skilled team who were able to tailor any space to meet their client’s needs, as operations manager Natasha explains…

“Founded in 2017, The Green Rooms, originally known as JPA Carpentry, began as a solo venture for James Austin, crafting a variety of structures from garden pergolas to walk-in wardrobes throughout Surrey. With a strong interest in outdoor living and environmentally friendly building techniques, James soon carved out a speciality in constructing unique garden rooms… Fast forward 7 years, The Green Rooms have now grown into a skilled team of 10, dedicated to creating distinctive garden rooms that truly stand out.”

This dedication to excellence afforded The Green Rooms an outstanding reputation, and so when homeowner Nick was in need of a recommendation, James and his team were top of the list, as Natasha went on to explain…

“JM Landscape & Design, a local landscaping company, recommended us while they were landscaping Nicks’s garden. They expertly constructed the retaining walls and created a level base in preparation for the garden room. At Nick’s request, we designed and built a well-lit gym that also featured a separate storage room. As always, we delivered a complete turnkey solution that included laying the foundations, designing the structure, building it, and handling the electrical sign-offs.”

When it came to the flooring, Nick chose NAL55 Silvered Oak from our Natureffect Aqualock collection. This hardwearing floor is complete with a registered embossed surface for a naturally textured grain, creating the feel of a real wood floor, whilst offering the durability of a laminate floor perfect for this busy garden room. What’s more, all the floors in our Natureffect Aqualock collection are complete with a water-resistant locking mechanism which allows the floor to withstand water for 36 hours, perfect for protecting your floor from accidental spills.

As for the design, Nick wanted a floor that would bring a sense of brightness to the garden room, and with a light oak aesthetic, Silvered Oak was the perfect fit, as Natasha went on to say: “Nick chose NAL55 Silvered Oak. It was selected for its modern aesthetic and light colour, which enhances the reflection of natural light.”

The Natureffect collections offer a wide variety of styles, from the contemporary style of the Silvered Oak to the natural oak tones of our Hammer Beam Oak and the deep tones of Bulrush Oak, meaning that no matter what their client’s design brief, The Green Rooms can find the perfect flooring solution with V4.

“The Green Rooms constructs a garden room nearly every two weeks, consistently incorporating V4 laminate flooring in each build. Clients are provided with a selection of samples to choose from… We consistently opt for V4 flooring because it is exceptionally user-friendly. Our flooring specialist prefers it as the boards are always pristine, without any damage or marks, ensuring reliability. Additionally, we use the recommended underlay to guarantee the best results.”

The end result is a beautiful home gym, flooded with light for an uplifting workout space. The added benefit of secret storage offers a huge practical benefit that not only utilises an otherwise unused corner of the garden but also allows the family home to store their belongings allowing for an uninterrupted view of the garden. Our light oak aesthetic flooring opens up the space, adding light and character, whilst making the room feel like an extension of the garden creating a harmonious and natural connection between the two areas.
