Just about everything the world does relates to the circle shape or occurs in a circular motion. It is said that the earth and the sky are round and all other planets too. When at its greatest power, even the wind is seen to move in a circular movement, the whirls. We see the sun and the moon rise as circles. As the sun sets, we see a bright orange magnificent circle disappearing into the horizon. Even birds build their nests in circles. Need I go on to explain what beauty and awe there is in circles? It’s no different when it comes to a circular garden room as the benefits are numerous in comparison to its square or rectangular counterparts. The benefits listed here are by no means exhaustive, but they’ll let you know how awesome it is to opt for a circular garden room.
The circular space is wired into our DNA on a psychological basis, as our ancient ancestors mostly lived in round houses. The circle shape is suitable as a social or workspace area for community and people’s reunion. Owing to the decades-long influence of our immediate environment on our health and general well-being, environmental psychologists have been researching and realizing that a circular room is a welcoming cognitive environment, with people apparently connecting, unwittingly, to the origin of their civilizations. Psychologists have cited in numerous scientific trials worldwide that people (particularly children) interact with each other more when sitting in a circle. Basically, it’s a stronger group dynamic. Consider the enhanced communication a circular garden room will afford you, especially if you love to host.
Garden rooms are ideal for gatherings, a rehearsal room, or a space to dance and sing. Suppose you’re a music lover. In that case, a circular garden room gives you the ideal space to play acoustic instruments and have performances and rehearsals with friends. The sound quality is lovely from the inside, amplifying sound magnificently. When outside the room, depending upon the materials used, it’s practically soundproof, so you won’t have neighbours banging on your door requesting you to keep the noise levels down.
Bad air quality in a building harms human health. Air is calculated to be three times more contaminated inside the average house than outside air. Thus, it is necessary for everyone to consider materials used in the design of garden rooms and ventilation of our houses accordingly. A less known fact about a circular garden room is that the house’s inner circumference is naturally filled by warm air due to the circulation principles. Warm air rises to the light cupola of the roof. It then descends into a column in the middle of the room before circling back again, meaning there’s no need for mechanical intervention to improve circulation.
In environmental terms, the amount of resources needed is lowered by round houses since a circle occupies the maximum area for a given perimeter, thereby minimizing material requirements (by approximately 30 percent). Given that the world is running out of resources, especially timber, which is the second most traded commodity, felling trees appears to be illogical if only for building corners. In fact, this makes the circular garden room the best energy-efficient shape created because of the considerably reduced exterior surface area.
The large, oval, double-glass roof-light dome in the middle of the roof continuously adds natural light to your space and reflects off walls. This provides a room where you can enjoy light circulating naturally inside, coupled with the perpetual horizon effect of the top of the wall, which is met by the ceiling. Furniture settles comfortably into the circular shape, allowing you to get creative in sub-dividing the room space in a clever way that may not have been possible in a rectangular room.
Aesthetically speaking, circles and curves are a crucial trait of the natural world. Additionally, circular buildings match unbelievably in the environment or the woodland. This design of garden rooms complies with the newest developments in the rural entertainment and tourism sector and satisfy the current need for more integrated natural structures, representing the feelings of luxury sites and essential businesses. Being in a circular garden room generally feels amazing.
Circular Energy Movement
Perhaps you are not a believer of the Feng Shui methods but do you ever notice how certain buildings, rooms, or spaces affect your general mood? When space is cramped, it seems to drain your energy while you feel energised in more organized spaces. When you step into a circular room, there seems to be an occurrence of invigorating, uplifting energy. The Chinese people believe that the universe comprises “chi,” the energy flowing between people and the earth. Feng Shui experts advocate that, because energy travels in a circular motion, corners of a room ought to be softened with plants. This helps to assist the energy to continue in its circular movements while also adding life to the room. Whether you accept the Feng Shui concept as true or not, it’s just better to eliminate the corners, don’t you think?
A circular garden room is cheap to run and maintain. Joints and corners tend to have more energy leaks, and for folks who are environmentally driven, this is a major plus. The minimal external surface area on a circular garden building means there is less warmth escaping out of the room, keeping you warm without the use of extra energy resources.
While there may be several reasons, concepts, and ideologies around the benefits of a circular garden room, the decision is yours after all is said and done. If you are environment conscious, it would be your ideal choice. Suppose you are conscious about initial costs and long-term expenses. In that case, this garden room option is definitely the better option. Overall, the comfort and air circulation in a round garden room is bound to keep you refreshed at all times, so you may just want to try it out.
