4. Your Working Environment is Comfortable
Renting an office space means you have to adapt. There may not be enough plug sockets, the room might have maintenance issues or the neighbouring businesses are a nuisance. At A Room In The Garden, we build bespoke garden buildings that are tailored to your business and personal needs. This means you get something that’ll help your business run smoothly and put you in a productive working state.
A comfortable space is also useful when you have client meetings, as they can feel at ease when discussing business with you. The more comfortable your prospect is, the more likely they are to buy from you. It’s a nice opportunity to create a positive first impression and build a strong relationship off the back of that. This can then lead to more loyalty from your customers.
Scientist have proven that looking at green plants and trees lower the heart rate and relax the mind. That is an extra bonus!
5. You Achieve a Better Work-Life Balance
One of the greatest annoyances in my life are delivery companies. You get an estimated delivery time that covers most of the day and somebody has to be present in order to sign for the package. If you try to reschedule, the only times available are when you definitely aren’t at home.
By working from home, this is no longer an issue. Neither are ill children, as a garden office pod allows you to have that flexibility when the unexpected occurs. You are able to catch up later in the day after nursing your poor child back to health. As an added bonus, you can also catch up on your housework when necessary. It won’t take much time out of your day to pop on a quick laundry wash, or a dishwasher load.
Some offices that are available to rent have a strict policy on hours of operation, meaning nobody can be in the building or on the estate between certain hours. This isn’t very flexible if you fancied taking the kids out for a daytrip, but with your own garden office you can take the kids out for the day and catch up with work at night. It’s very handy!
Technology has improved to such an extent now that people can run hugely successful businesses from their home with ease. You don’t need big servers or expensive computers, thanks to The Cloud and Smart technology.
Our prediction for the future is that office spaces for small businesses that have fewer than five employees will become a thing of the past. Instead, garden office pods will become the modern, up-to-date choice.
Having a successful business is based upon high productivity and low costs. As discussed in our five benefits above, having your own garden office can prove to be cheaper than a traditional rented office space and also boost productivity.
