If there is one thing that recent years have taught us is that spending time outdoors is important. For many, the garden has now become the favourite spot in the house. As such, it would be a shame to limit its enjoyment only to the warmer seasons. Thankfully, an igloo dome can help you enjoy your garden all year round, regardless of the weather or temperature outside! Here is how this addition to your garden can be a game-changer.
1. Get Closer to Nature All Year Long
Whether you live in the city or the countryside, anyone can vouch for the mental & physical benefits of having access to a green space. Yet, if you’re one of the lucky ones to own a garden, how many times have you skipped going there due to bad weather? Depending on where you live, that might outnumber the times you spent in the garden.
By introducing this type of outdoor igloo pods to your home, you can feel closer to nature anytime you like. You can even move your home office to the garden, or transform it into the ultimate meditation area. The geodesic shape of these garden domes can catch every ray of the sun even in winter. This means that it will naturally stay warmer than the outside temperature.

2. Declutter Your Home
How many things do you own that don’t have a proper space in your home? It happens to everyone. Sometimes, you see a great piece of furniture you just have to buy but have nowhere to put it!
Now, you can use your garden igloo dome to re-organise every space. Use it to create an outdoor living room, or turn it into your creative studio. Think of it as getting an addition to your garden that can become anything you like!
…and that treadmill tucked away in the corner of your living room, which doubles as a clothes drying rack? Move it into the dome and chances are you will actually start using it for exercising!
3. Exercise Outdoors Anytime in the Igloo Dome
There is something special about working out in the garden. The calming sounds of nature, the leafy scenery… all of it beats the white anonymous walls of a gym! It doesn’t seem fair, though, that this option should only be available when the weather permits it.

That’s what makes a garden dome the perfect place to exercise in. You can focus on your workout while admiring your plants and listening to birds chirping. Before you know it, you’ll be exercising more often as this makes it a far more pleasant experience!
4. Create Your Own Sunroom
Sunshine keeps you in a good mood and provides your body with vitamin D. But not every house has enough windows or a solarium to be able to enjoy its benefits. Instead of moving to a new home, you can add an extra living space that’s all about sunshine with a garden pod.
This clear igloo dome protects you from the elements while still giving you a much-needed Vitamin D boost. Enjoy a moment of peace and quiet there, or use it as an office to make working from home more enjoyable.

5. Keep Your Plants Happy in Winter Inside the Igloo Pod
Every gardener is familiar with the struggle of keeping outdoor plants alive & happy during the cold winter months. Instead of cramming every plant inside, use the dome to protect them from strong winds and low temperatures. That lovely olive tree you’re keeping on your patio, will be grateful for such a cosy winter shelter!
You can also turn this extra living space into somewhere you grow your herbs or plants all year long, regardless of the season. It’s a weatherproof way to maximise what you can get out of your garden.

6. Create a ‘Deep-focus’ Zone
What if you could have one area in your home to dedicate to really focusing on your work or passion project? This dome shaped room could easily become your ‘deep-focus’ zone. Create your own special oasis and decorate the space to reflect its intent.
Sometimes, all we need to get the creative juices flowing is a change of scenery. And what better scenery is there than one immersed in nature?
