It goes without saying that Covid-19 has had a huge impact on all of our lives in one way or another. One of the biggest areas that it has had an impact is in the way that we work. More and more people are working from home, working remotely or running their business from home.
This has meant that these people are left trying to find a place that they can create a home office. It might sound like it should be relatively easy to find a spot that you can work in. After all, all you need is somewhere to put your laptop, a chair and a power point. But this really isn’t the case.
Sure, you can set up anywhere that you may think will do, but in the long-term (and by this we mean only a matter of days) you are going to find that this approach really doesn’t work for you.
So, what is the alternative? One that you might not instantly think of is building a garden office; but they can be hugely worthwhile you investing in for your home. Want to know more about why we think this? Here are the main reasons why we believe that a garden office is the perfect addition to your home.
One of the main positives to installing a bespoke garden office, is that it is exactly that. Bespoke. You can consider all of the things that you need, that you want from this additional space and then ensure that this is included in the designs and in the plans.
It has to be said that one of the hardest things about working from home is that it is all too easy to get distracted. This is usually by all of the things that need to be done and the odd jobs that you notice whilst you are there. When you build a garden office you are actually escaping from the rest of your house, you will be away from all those distractions and jobs that you may otherwise notice and you are not going to be tempted to do them.
Not only this, but if you are working from home whilst you are trying to manage your family, then having a garden office gives you a place to escape to and signify to your family that you are working.
Of course the main purpose of your garden office is to work in there, but this doesn’t have to mean that you are limited to only using it for work. Garden offices can be designed to have a variety of different uses depending on what you need. We have seen a wide range of requests from our clients who want to make sure that their garden office can be more than just a space to set up a desk whilst they need to work.
It has to be said that being outside in the fresh air is good for your mood and for your wellbeing and there is no better feeling than being surrounded by the nature in your back garden. When you have a garden office you are going to be outside which means that you will instantly feel better. Sure, it might be rainy and grey, but you still get to enjoy all the best bits of being outside, without having to worry that you are going to be wet or cold.
The important thing to know about building a garden office is that you are going to need to see it as an investment. Whilst you may not always be working from home, a garden office does have so much more to offer you than you may realise.
Why not get in touch with us? We can help to make sure that your garden office is everything that you need it to be. Rather than having to put up with a one size fits all approach to your needs, by talking to us you can ensure that your garden office is properly designed and planned. That when it comes to being built, that you know that it is safe, it is secure and it is the kind of place that you want to be productive in too.
