No matter what time of year it is, winter, summer or spring, you may find yourself working each day in an office that is cramped, dark and de-motivating. You may sit each day at a desk that faces a brick wall, looking at your laptop screen thinking how dull office life is. Many offices and home study rooms have harsh lighting, unimaginative decor and a lack of fresh air.
Until we make the change it can be hard to appreciate how a lighter, more airy garden office can improve the work flow and sense of well being.
Well now you donâ€™t have to stay entombed in the house. Well you do have to work, but you donâ€™t have to stare at a brick wall! You can design and buy yourself a bespoke garden office!
What is that you may ask? An office on the lawn, a desk surrounded by plants? Not quite! You can convert your shed or summerhouse into the perfect work space. Help make your office a better place to work, invest in a garden office.
Alternatively you can go the full mile and invest in spacious creative outdoor office designs if space allows. Here are 5 creative and practical reasons why you need to invest in a garden office:
Get Some Fresh Air and Room to Breathe
One of the main reasons to get a garden office is to get out in the fresh air. Sat in a stuffy office all day can be bad for your health, bad for your skin and make you not want to come to work. Instead, working from a garden office, a little space at the end of your garden where you can do all your work surrounded by fresh air, is the perfect way to keep you motivated and wanting to go to work.
Your Own Personal Space and Freedom
Having a garden office means you can have your own personal space. A home office may become filled with folders, paperwork and things you know nothing about. With a garden office, outside of your home there are many advantages. You are away from the house, with less distractions, you can decorate exactly how you like and you can work in your own space, shared with no one else (unless you want to).
Cheaper than the Daily Commute to the City
For many of us commuting to work can take hours, cost thousands each year and mean that you spend half of your day away from your desk when you could be working. According to research, over 3 million people are spending over 2 hours a day commuting to and from work.
Instead of fighting your way onto the train, running for the tram or being sat next to someone you donâ€™t like on the bus, find the perfect place to work in your new shed converted into the perfect office space in your very own garden.
Natural Light and Bespoke Design
The negative effect of staring at your computer screen for 8 hours a day can easily be combated by the natural light you will get from working in your garden. Having the birds and bees flying past, with the sun streaming in through the window means you can easily work surrounded by nature. What better way to start each working day than with a cup of tea and a great view from your office.
Not only that but an bespoke office in the garden, designed from scratch is a creative opportunity in itself. That is an opportunity to design a garden office that reflects your personality, taste and style. In terms of decoration, colors, accessories and lighting. You can paint your office for success from day one.
