Garden office at the bottom of a family garden
Many people have already discovered the benefits of working from home. With the current situation, so many more have had their eyes opened to this experience. We are discovering that a lot more of us can work from home than we may have previously realised. If you are thinking that working from home is perfect for you, then you may be thinking of creating a space that is dedicated purely for you to work in. A garden office could be the ideal solution, especially if you’d like to maintain that, ‘going to work’ feeling. There are many benefits to having a garden office space;-
No more commuting
Walking to the end of your garden isn’t considered much of a commute. This means you get more time, morning exercises or take the kids to school. All the things you normally wouldn’t be able to do because you’re sat in traffic, or squashed on the tube or train. You’ll save money too with no travel costs involved!
Separates home and office
By having a garden office, you can keep your home and office life more separate. If you‘re still making an effort to get up and ‘leave’ your house to go to work, you may find it easier to get into ‘work mode’. Separating your office from your home means that you are less likely to blur the lines of work and home life. Maintaining healthy boundaries when you work from home is important.
Create your space
Choose how your office looks and feels when it is your space. You can choose everything from the building itself to your desk, chair, colour scheme and even the temperature of the building. The ability to create a space that suits you and your needs perfectly is not to be underestimated.
Peace and quiet
When you work in an office environment it can be very noisy. A garden office is a lot more peaceful. The sounds of nature may be all you can hear from your garden office. Interruptions will be greatly reduced and you can choose if you want to listen to music or not to help you focus. It is a much more stress-free environment when you have the peace and quiet to be able to concentrate on the task in hand.
Set your own work hours
It has been proven that we are more effective with our time when we set our own working hours. Without company office hours to adhere to, you may be surprised by how much you get done within your designated work times.
Add value to your home
These days buyers are looking for something extra. They want that bonus that makes the place special before they part with their money. A garden office provides a hidden gem that potential buyers love. Even if your buyers don’t work from home, they will start to convert that office space in their head to something they do want. Or maybe its the perfect solution as they have been considering starting their business? It could be exactly the right push they need to fulfil their dreams. The added monetary value could be around 7% extra on the asking price. Whatever your reasons for considering working from home are, if you do have the space, a garden office could be the perfect solution.
