Many people have had to work from home because of the ongoing pandemic. This trend is expected to continue, even if restrictions are lifted. Most businesses will opt for a hybrid method to work from home in order to keep their employees safe.
You may need an office space as a permanent addition or upgrade to your home. Are you entirely sure if your home is big enough for permanent office space? This is a common problem. A growing trend has seen people build garden office sheds. This, of course, allows them to have a dedicated space and gives them more space without having to upgrade their home and experiencing all the possible problems that may have come with it, accordingly.
Here are a few reasons why you should invest in a garden office shed:
A better work-life balance
Although it is possible to convert your spare bedroom into an office, many people struggle to determine the boundary between work and home. And also, it is not at all good idea to jump from your bed right onto your desk. We are literally living at work, and this is not a good thing.
It is a rather common belief that it is essential to take care of your mental health and well-being when working remotely(and not only!). You should also make an effort to get outside every day. This includes doing some exercise, jogging, yoga, or any outdoor activity that you may find pleasant. You can have a separate workspace in your garden office shed, which allows you to get away from the outside world and concentrate better. It’s easy to walk out of your office at the end, return inside, and then enjoy your time free from work.
Not only for an office
A garden office pod is more than just a place to work. You can find cheaper gym equipment packages and turn it into a sports room, additional sitting area, or even a bar depending on how much space you have. The benefits of investing in a garden office pod do not end there. It could double as a home gym, additional sitting area, or even a bar.
Checkatrade estimates that garden office pods cost around $1200 to build a simple shed and up to $25,000 to build a log cabin.
There are many high-end log cabins available, but a simple shed could still work if you have a limited budget.
You may need electrics or locks to protect your home. This is something that you should consider when planning your budget(that is for sure).
Although it may seem simple, it can be an excellent way to make a space that is practical for homework.
You can add value to your home by adding a small garden office pod. This is especially important in this current housing boom. You can add additional square meters without the need to make costly and time-consuming extensions or convert your attic. A garden room can increase the value of your home by adding around 5 percent. A garden office shed can be a selling point for potential buyers, as it is expected that buyers will look for office space after the pandemic.
