Why you should invest in a garden office

January 29, 2020

With the costs of moving home, adding up quickly, many homeowners are now choosing to expand their existing property as opposed to purchasing a larger one. One of the many ways in which you can expand the living space you have available on your current property is to invest in the installation of a garden room. These are fantastic versatile spaces which can come in a wide range of styles and materials to suit the theme of your home.

One increasingly widespread use of garden rooms is to utilise them in the form of a garden office. What could be better than working in an airy, open office environment tailored to meet your every need, right at the bottom of your own garden?

Some of the major benefits of installing a garden office include:

A better work-life balance

By taking away the ties of all of those hours you would usually spend commuting, you can choose to invest your precious time more wisely by spending it with your family or on your other hobbies and interests. This will offer a positive contribution to your mental health and will leave you feeling more fulfilled than ever before, which will only improve your quality of life at work too.

A great investment

Rent prices on office space are increasingly high, and over time those costs can add up to significant sums, which eat into the profit of your company. If you have currently been renting office space, then investing in getting a garden office installed could save you hundreds or thousands of pounds over time. Although it may seem like a reasonable sum to spend out initially, once it is there, it won’t be long until it has paid for itself – several times over.

Separate your work from your home

If you are used to getting your work done in your own home, maybe in a dedicated office corner you had organised previously or even at your kitchen table. A garden office could be the perfect thing to give you some necessary differentiation between your work and home life. It can be so easy to get distracted by housework, pets and other distractions within our homes throughout the day that stepping outside and heading to an external office space could provide the focus we need.

Impress your clients

Garden offices are a viable investment for small start-up companies and the self-employed. They prove your commitment to your company by showing you have invested in an excellent working space, offering you the opportunity to wow your clients when they pop by for a meeting.

Create your ideal workspace

Garden offices can be tailor-made to suit your needs. Whether you need it to be split into two smaller rooms, offer more light with larger windows, include built-in shelving units and other storage spaces; the options really are endless. You can design your garden room to suit your business needs, close to nature and in the peaceful tranquillity of your own garden.

Increase the value of your property

Not only are garden offices a worthy investment due to the savings you can make on renting office space, but they can also increase the value of your property should you be considering selling it in the future. The additional living space is something which will help to attract buyers, with thanks to the fact that the living space can be transformed to suit their requirements. If they don’t require a luxurious office, then it could be used as a garden room, gym, play area or anything else.

Choose a professional for installation

Lucas from Quality Garden Offices says garden offices have become so popular these days and many people want a bespoke solution rather than a flat pack option.

Most of my customers want to create something very unique for themselves. Many customers have a specific situation to solve. They may have a new baby and need a quiet workspace, teenagers that they want to make a chill-out area separate from the family living room or indeed want to create a gym set up to save on gym fees. All these scenarios can be serviced by creating a new space in the garden. Getting the right solution can literally transform your life!
