At SWL Workrooms we are very proud of the quality, design and sustainability of our products. Each workroom is handmade in the UK using high quality materials which we are transparent about to our clients. If you have any questions about any of the materials used to make your workroom please get in touch.
Our garden rooms are fitted with an extremely durable and recyclable EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) membrane. This incredible material is guaranteed to protect from leaks for 30-years and it is maintenance-free. On top of this we install a sedum roof system. This adds a beautiful organic look and provides an additional layer of insulation and a natural habitat for insects and birds.
Our premium cladding is inspired by the beauty of nature and built to outperform it. It is moulded from selected timbers making it look exceptionally like real wood, whilst avoiding any on-going maintenance associated with wood.
Our garden rooms are fitted with 100% British ethical wool carpet or FSC engineered oak flooring on top of recycled carpet underlay. It’s not only a superb and sustainable material; it provides fantastic thermal insulation and creates better acoustics.
800w Premium WIFI controlled wall heater. We have not cut any corners when selecting the perfect heater for your workroom. Our wall mounted heaters are available in a selection of matte finish colours, and can be controlled using either the built in thermostat, or using an app on you IOS or Android device.
We insulate all floors, walls and ceilings in your garden room with 100mm thick and 100% ethical British sheep’s wool insulation. It’s a highly sustainable and ethical material choice that will last longer than synthetic insulation while also having improved thermal insulation values.
We use a high grade 12mm FSC plywood to build all inner walls and ceilings. The wood is finished with low VOC paints to provide a contemporary and clean finish. Using panelling, we can achieve a flawless fit, with neat express joints between the floor and ceiling. Light wood grain may still be visible under the paint finish, which adds a natural feel to the building. If you prefer, we can leave panels raw and unvarnished. (Talk to us if you would like a quote for this option.)
Nine-Zero Ltd manufacture our solid timber windows & doors in Cornwall. They use FSC rated timber sourced from sustainable forests and use low-VOC paints. Nine-zero employ sustainable manufacturing methods and source all their energy from renewable sources. All windows and doors are fitted with argon-filled double glazing, which provides exceptional insulation that lowers your heating bills.
We offer the choice of locally hand-made curtains to any workroom purchase. These curtains are made with thermal cotton interlining, and hang on forged hooks and brackets. The range of fabrics we offer are made from recycled linen and PES plastics.
We offer the choice to add a beautiful and soft feature cork wall. We use a feature cork product called Amorim Dekwall from Puretree Cork. Cork is one of the most sustainable materials available. Not only will this feature wall look stunning and enable you to pin up pictures, samples or notes above your desk. A cork wall will assist with sound and heat insulation.
There is a minimum of three double power points fitted in each room. All lighting is low voltage LED to keep energy bills as low as possible. Your workroom comes fully wired up to an external fuse board.
Interior walls and ceilings are painted in Farrow & Ball low VOC estate emulsion from our colour range. Door and window colours are also selected from the Farrow & Ball colour range.
Our garden rooms are installed on corrosion-resistant galvanised steel screw piles (unless an adequate concrete pad exists). Steel piles are low impact, recyclable and movable, unlike concrete. It’s a solid and sustainable base to build on.
