You want a beautiful little garden house? Well, why not?

Today on homify, we've complied a collection of 10 different types and styles that work in harmony with just about any garden.

These are all classic designs that are as functional as they are aesthetically charming. They can be used for storage, an outdoor office or even a games room – it's up to you!

Shall we take a look?

1. Charming cottage in wood

This garden is quite small and narrow, yet the grey-painted wooden house fits snugly into the corner. The front windows allow plenty of light inside while the interior is still private.

Wouldn't you want to relax on this little terrace?

2. Contemporary with rustic charm

This is a contemporary little garden house in a gorgeous and classic garden. The small wooden structure with large windows features a double-wing door, which opens outwards. This makes it possible to store all sorts of bulky garden accessories.

You could also use this as a small outdoor bedroom!

3. Garden house with a terrace

If you prefer a more bold and vibrant design, you can opt for a red garden house like we see here. Or you can paint a garden house any colour that you like!

Don't you like how this one features a sliding door, seamlessly connecting the interior with the exterior?

7. Modern wooden house that's multi-functional

This modern wooden house was designed for a hairdresser who wanted a studio on the property. Talk about savvy!

8. Simple wooden house
