Whether you already work from home or want to start in 2020, there are a lot of benefits to setting up a separate workspace where you can detach from home life and make sure you focus on whatever the work day throws at you.
One option is to invest in a log cabin kit to create a totally separate workspace at the end of your garden. You might think that sounds a little extreme, but as a recent post for Real Business revealed, there’s a lot to be said for the ‘shed economy’.
That’s right, there’s even a term for those who work from sheds in their gardens. If you choose to go down this route, you’ll be joining a growing number of entrepreneurs and others who work from their garden sheds. The news provider cited figures from Starling Bank, which found that 100,000 people in the UK currently run their firms and micro-businesses from garden sheds.
According to the bank, this group of people is also contributing some £17 billion to the UK’s economy each year, so you’ll be in good company.
But what are the advantages? Firstly, you significantly reduce your morning commute, saving time, energy and money. Having a log cabin as your office or business premises also saves you an estimated £8,500 a year on the likes of rent, commuting and other overheads.
If you’re new to working from home, or from a workspace like a log cabin in your back garden, take a look at our top tips on how to be productive. As well as having a separate workspace, make sure that it’s designed to encourage your productivity and that it feels professional.
