Home Garden Office
A fabulous idea in this contributed post! I would LOVE a garden office one day. For now, I’ll settle for just a desk out on the verandah on warm, wind-free days.
Amazing Reasons to Have a Garden Office
Do you work from home? It’s challenging, right? Trying to get motivated when you have everything from the television to your dirty laundry distracting you can be difficult to say the least.
Renting out an office space may not be an option, but have you ever thought about creating a new space to work in your garden?
Here are some compelling reasons why you should:
There is only one place to begin, and this is with the fact that an outdoor office will improve your productivity levels. This is because you will be taken away from all of the distractions that usually bug you while you are working in the home. You will be able to completely shut off from your usual surroundings, and this will show in the quality of your work and the efficiency of your operations.
Achieve a better work and home balance
You will be able to achieve a better home/work balance by investing in a garden office. This is because you will be able to structure your days better. As you are not working in the same place where you sleep, relax, and eat your dinner, you should be able to start work at a sensible hour and then officially finish at a realistic time too. You can shut off, leave your office, and go back to your home life. Not only will you benefit, but your family will too.
Increase the value of your property
Taking your business to the garden will not only benefit you in terms of increased productivity and a better work environment, but it will boost the value of your property too. Space is at a premium these days, so having an extra storage facility for new buyers will be very appealing when the time comes to sell.
You can create your ideal workspace
By having a new office built from scratch, you will be able to create a workspace that is completely tailored to you. There are no restrictions. Everything from the colours used and the decorations to the temperature and the lighting can be tailored to create the perfect work environment. It’s your own little sanctuary!
It’s not as expensive as you may think
A lot of people assume that building their own office is going to cost a small fortune. This does not have to be the case. It’s all about the material you use. Steel building prices are affordable, and their durability means that you don’t have to worry about repairs or replacements any time in the near future. Once the building is constructed, all you need is office furniture, which you probably already have anyway.
There is a lot to love about having a garden office. Not only will it boost your productivity levels, but it can make you a lot of money in the long run too. Plus, there’s just something nice about being in the garden all day long isn’t there?
