Working from home is becoming increasingly more common due to the benefits it creates. Having an office in your garden could be an ideal place if you work for yourself, are looking to start a business or perhaps just want to make your life easier and save on the time and cost of commuting. There are so many reasons why a garden office will change your life, here are some key points from the UK’s premier retailer of quality garden and leisure buildings, GBC Group, as to why that is the case.
6No daily commute
When you have your office in your garden your commute time will reduce drastically. No more early mornings to beat the rush hour traffic or the chaotic public transport where you struggle to even get a seat. A stroll from your back door to your garden office will allow you to start your day fresh and stress free, not only that but the money you will be saving will definitely add up.
5No more 9-5 routine
Gone are the days of making sure you’re sat at your desk for 9am and not switching off till the hour hits 5pm. Having an office in your garden gives you the freedom to work the hours that are suitable for you. With the right working attitude, you’ll be able to complete what you need to do within your own hours, without having the regulated times of company offices.
4Away from the city and noise
If you work in the city, the hustle and bustle of the lively location can certainly take a toll on how you work and it’s not always for everyone. You may find when working in your garden office that the calm and peaceful environment can greatly increase your productivity.
3Create the workspace you want
The ability to create a workspace that suits your needs is another benefit when working from your garden office. Firstly you’ll be able to choose the building itself, there are a great range of summerhouses and sheds for sale from GBC Group which will fit perfectly in your garden. Also being able to choose your desk, chair and even the temperature of the room are all added benefits to being in control of your own workspace.
2Balance home and work life
The balance between home and work life can be difficult to manage, but working from your garden could be the answer. The flexibility of being able to take a break, watch your child’s school performance or cook dinner for the family, is all possible whilst still holding a career – it’s all down to your management skills and using your time effectively.
1Increases your property value
Not only is having a garden office beneficial to your lifestyle, but when it comes to moving on and selling up, having extras in your home such as a garden office can increase your property value by up 7%. The investment of buying an outdoor building can be a potential financial source by the time you look to settle elsewhere, so it’s something you should consider.
