A recent survey carried out by Barratt Developments found that almost half of households believe their current property to be unsuitable for home working. Many people struggle to do their job effectively from the kitchen table or lounge, and only 28% of respondents had the benefit of a dedicated work space such as a study or home office.
Flexible work patterns – or ‘hybrid’ working as it’s increasingly becoming known – are now the norm for millions of people across all age groups, with at least a proportion of the working week being spent at home. It’s increasingly common for householders to need extra – and preferably more flexible – space. Not just to work in, but to exercise in too, as the rise of home gyms and the success of brands such as Peloton proves.
Whether you have a new or old home, we can assist. Rather than thinking of moving, the solution may be simpler and cheaper in the short term. It’s true that with the benefit of a large garden, a ‘Shoffice’ (Outdoor Shed/Office) may be the solution for you. But by reconfiguring the spaces within your home – and sometimes combining this with a modest extension or garage conversion – a solution to the working from home dilemma may well be closer than you think.
More than two thirds of workers said they would prefer a dedicated office space in their home – simply contact us now for a no obligation chat about the potential to improve your property.
