Contemporary Summerhouses for a Modern Garden

If, when you imagine a garden summerhouse, you think of a quaint octagonal garden bulding, think again. Today, you can discover a whole range of contemporary summerhouses to suit even the most modern of gardens.

Why even buy a summerhouse? Well, a garden summerhouse provides valuable additional living space where you can relax in the shade or escape those inevitable summer showers. As well as leisure spaces, summer houses can also be seasonal garden offices, studios or dining areas.

If you have a modern garden, then the sleek, clean lines of a contemporary summer house are right for you.


Here we take a look at some of our best-selling summer houses that will be ideal for your modern garden design.
