Making a small urban garden into an extra room

In yesterday's post, I explained how I went about making the initial plans for our garden. One of the main decisions we've had to make is how much living space we should sacrifice for growing space. With this in mind, I've been looking around for inspiration online and I have to say, I'm starting to lean towards the idea of making our garden into an extra room. Rather than sacrifice extra precious growing space for an extra foot of empty patio to make the garden look larger, I think I prefer the idea of a cosy living and eating area surrounded by lush foliage. I found the below very inspirational:
