Even before COVID-19, many people chose to work from home. And it wasn’t just for the self-employed – many company employees chose to spend a few days a week working out of their home offices. Speak to long time ‘work-from-homers’ and they’ll tell you they get more work done and are less stressed.
Work from home in a garden office
They’ll tell you that, working from home is good. It’s good for you, it’s good for your mental health, it’s good for your employer because it makes you more productive.
The pandemic forced companies to allow their staff to work at home. Surprisingly, they realised that it actually worked. Employees don’t ‘shirk from home’, in fact they’re more motivated and happier. Organisations are realising that perhaps they don’t need to spend all that money on expensive rent and business rates on large corporate premises – it makes financial sense to encourage staff to stay away from the office some of the time.
But while home is a great place to live, it can be hard to project a professional business image with the washing machine humming in the background, the cat taking centre stage during the video meeting and the kids bowling in to your work space every five minutes.
Finding a distraction-free workspace can be a challenge. One solution is to build an extension. But that’s not always possible or financially viable. You could convert the garage or the loft. But that’s expensive too, and you’d lose all that useful storage space.
A better, cheaper and quicker solution is to install an AMC Garden Office. Even a small garden can accommodate one of our offices, and most don’t even require planning permission. With full internet access, all the power sockets you’ll need, full-insulation and double glazing they’re designed to be a fully functional workspace to be used all year round. We also can design and fit built-in desk and bespoke storage for all your work essentials.
At the end of the working day, you can simply turn off the lights, lock the door and join your family in the home.
