With the advent of the Internet, cloud computing and ultra-portable tablets, workers have more flexibility than ever nowadays. They’re no longer confined to the office. Many workers now have the option to work from home.
There are many benefits to moving away from the office and towards working from home. Workers can save the money they would normally spend on commuting. This also means that their CO2 emissions are reduced by not taking the car to work. The time normally spent commuting can be used by workers to spend more time with their families, thereby creating a better work-life balance. However, working from home can have some drawbacks. It’s very easy to get distracted by everything that’s in the home: children, the television, the radio or anything not conducive to hard work. That is why many workers are choosing to work from the comfort of a garden office.
Garden offices can be built anywhere in a garden space. Although workers are still ‘at home’ officially, they provide a distance between themselves and the distractions within the home. Working in a garden office almost guarantees peace and quiet. It also creates a feeling of ‘going to work’, making it easier to separate work life and home life.
Just because garden studios are built away from the home, it doesn’t mean that luxuries have to be compromised on. A garden room can be fully heated or air conditioned and be connected to electricity, internet and telephone lines. Garden workers can have all the luxuries of home with an added beautiful view!
