Top Tips to Consider When Looking At Garden Offices

If you’ve grown tired of working from your kitchen table, it might be time for a change of scenery and moving outdoors into a Garden Office may be the cure you’re looking for. What you need may just be an outdoor office, to provide you with both a peaceful and practical area to work, away from the distractions of family and home life. Whether you’re starting your own business, running a thriving corporation, or anticipating greater freedom from your employer, garden offices are quickly becoming a popular contender when it comes to working from home solutions. 

Furthermore, having a room or office away from the main house will give you that feeling like you’re ‘going to work,’ helping you strike a better balance between home and work. Creating that distinct space will help you easily define work and home as you’ll be able to turn off your computer, lock the office door, and take a short walk across the yard, leaving work behind for the evening. So we’ve come up with some garden office points to consider to get you started.

Maximise Light 

The majority of individuals choose garden offices which have a more classic garden room appearance. Because of the enormous windows, the area will always seem light and bright, regardless of the weather outside, making it an inspirational place to work.

You can even opt for Glass walls in your contemporary outdoor office. Making the space seem more like part of the garden by incorporating the view at the same time as increasing the amount of light.

Connect your Garden Office to Your Home.

There are many benefits to having an outdoor office that’s attached to your home. If it’s freezing cold, w, pouring down with rain or gail force winds outside, you can easily nip to the toilet or the kitchen for a cup of tea all without having to step outside and brave the elements.

In addition all of the connections and wires you’ll need will already be in place. You’ll have access to the current set-up you’ve already got, making it simpler and less expensive to connect things like power, water and Wi-Fi to your office. We would however, still advocate a separate entrance to encourage this part of the home to be viewed as a different area with a specific function. 

Garden & Landscaping Aesthetics

If you’re going to step away from the main property and build your garden office at the bottom of the garden, that will be seen from both the main house and from within the garden 24 hours a day, it needs to be visually appealing. There are companies creating award-winning garden studios that are ideal for use as a trendy garden office. Their pods are typically available in four different sizes, with the smallest being 3.2 meters wide and 2.4 meters deep.

Consider Bi-fold Doors And A Patio

Opening up a garden office with bi-fold doors is fantastic for the warmer months of the year. You afford yourself a greater circulation of air and receive all the advantages that being outside and in nature has to offer, all from the comfort of your chair.

You’ll also gained added benefits if you add a small patio area as you’ll actually be able to venture out into the garden to work if you so choose to.
