Working from home has been an integral part of the ‘new normal’ since the pandemic hit in 2020, but is it here to stay?
Taking a look at some statistics on working from home, it definitely looks like things are heading that way. A trend of ‘hybrid working’ seems to be solidifying into place, with both companies and employees preferring a blended work scenario, rather than working from home or the office exclusively:
So, with plenty of us preferring to work from home into the continued future, it’s important to start thinking about creating a positive working atmosphere for yourself. Yes, there were the initial charms of working from your bed or sofa, and the comfort of knowing that you needn’t rush to get ready in the morning- but this can soon wear thin.
Working in the spaces of your home that are usually resided in for sleep, relaxation and winding down blurs the lines of the much-coveted work-life balance. This could further lead to lack of sleep and higher stress levels.
Due to this, lots of us are realising the benefits of working in our gardens- be this a converted shed, conservatory, or a garden room transformed into an office space.
Here are some reasons why we think you should consider an outdoor office space:
Peace and Quiet:
Having a completely separate space from your hectic home may be just what you need to focus. This one is for those of you living with noisy families, who never seem to be quiet enough for you to confidently attend zooms without your finger tentatively hovering over the mute button.
Despise your cold, corporate office at work? Well, your garden office is your oyster, and can be styled however your wish. Choosing our bespoke garden room will allow you full flexibility in every aspect of your dream design, even down to the materials used.
Separate Space Means Less Clutter:
Of course, you could achieve both of the above positives in a home office- but that doesn’t mean everything will stay in order in a shared space. A dedicated, fully separate garden room ensures less clutter and better organisation for your productivity.
Perfect for Every Season:
Working from home in the intense heat during summer months is hard, we know. Let’s not even mention trying to work outside to soak some sun but not being able to see past the glare on your screen. With a garden office, you will get plenty of natural light without feeling uncomfortable. Alongside market-leading insulation levels, this comfort will continue year-round, including the cooler winter months.
No Need for an Extension:
Perhaps you have been considering adding additional space to your property to work from for some time now, but have been put off due to the hassle of an extension. An office space in one of our garden rooms may be just the thing you’ve been looking for. These spaces are built to last, and will be an extremely valuable addition to your home and work life.
We have a great range of garden rooms, in a vast array of sizes and styles that will be perfect for you. Don’t hesitate to contact us for a free quote.
