For some, erecting a bar in the back garden is a summer time essential. For others, it’s a sewing or crafts room away from the hustle and bustle of the family home. Garden rooms can be used for whatever takes your fancy, from bar to home office. For the most part, employers are now allowing their staff to work remotely from home, saving them money on their overheads in the office. By having an office room installed, you get the privacy of the workplace on your own property. Sounds like bliss, doesn’t it?
Home Office Outside
Having office rooms installed outside the home gives you a clear advantage than a study in the house. There’s less chance of wandering to find food, conversation or easy distractions that take you away from work as technically, you’re ‘outside’ the home. You should consider the space you want to fill and go online to research outside office rooms and their dimensions to work out whether you even have the garden space for it.
There are many ways your outside office can be great for the environment, and if you follow guides like the one from The Telegraph, you can ensure that your garden office is as eco-friendly as possible. You also should make sure that when you’ve erected your garden office or chill out room, you make sure you can keep warm! Don’t forget that being outside means being exposed to the elements, so if you ensure you are well insulated, you can avoid being chilly.
Ensuring windows and doors are well placed for good light and ventilation will mean that you have absolutely everything you need without even having to shift your computer from place to place. Power sockets, lights and heating are also a consideration for keeping you comfortable. Websites such as http://www.gardenspaces.co.uk/ can give you some great ideas on where you should place things internally and you can make sure you keep electrics safe.
Thinking about your office, ask yourself what size you need for things. How much furniture do you realistically need for your work space? You can have freestanding items and shelves or you can choose to have inbuilt units and desks. This is your space to either have some time to chill or somewhere you work, so make it as comfortable and efficient as possible.
