The garden office studio is revolutionising the way the UK works! As more and more companies are adopting remote working systems, many people are now working from home at least one day a week.
Unless you have a designated workspace in your house it can be difficult to create a distinction between work and home life – a garden office studio can solve this problem.
A garden office is normally situated away from the main house at the bottom of the garden, giving garden office workers the feeling of going ‘out’ to work, it also allows you to close the door on your work at the end of the day, thus creating the perfect work / life balance.
Garden offices come in all shapes and sizes from small units 2.1m x 2.1m which are enough room for one person to work to large multi room units suitable for several workers.
The majority of garden offices sold in the UK are one room units, but there is a growing trend with buyers to include toilets, showroom facilities and a small kitchen area which allows you to make drinks etc without having to go back to the main house. These self contained garden office studios are ideal when you have people working with you or if you have clients visiting – again keeping the distinction between home and work life.
There are around 100 garden office suppliers in the UK, their designs are dived up into three sections – standard designs where you have minimal flexibility over customisation options, modular designs which allow you to mix and match design elements and bespoke designs where by every element of the building is designed to meet your needs and tastes.
A few suppliers offer self build kits but by far the vast majority of garden offices are sold as full service / turnkey projects whereby everything from the foundations to the final decoration is handled by the supplier and included in the price you pay, you just sit back and watch your new workspace come to life.
There is a lot to think about when buying a garden office from whether you need Planning Permission, to what design elements you want to include, to how much maintenance the building will need, our experts have put this website together to help walk you through each stage.
