It was reported last year by The Mirror that the number of people working from home in the UK has increased by a fifth in the last ten years – soaring to the surprisingly high number of 1.5m. It was also reported by the BBC that at least 53% of homes in the UK had a garage, with only 24% using them to shelter their cars.
So, at Ace Garage Doors in Cheshire, we think it’s time the nation de-cluttered and started using their garage space as a creative office. We’ve listed a few reasons why you should start thinking about converting below.
You’ll Have More Space to Work
Your house has suddenly gained an extra room! No more working from your laptop on the dining room table, moving paperwork back and forth every time a meal is served. You’ll have a dedicated space to work where you can start to eventually invest in the necessary work equipment, from a computer to a comfortable office chair.
You’ll Be Much More Productive
If you have a busy household, and let’s be honest most of us do, it can become a challenge when separating and balancing work life with home life. Converting your garage into a home office is the perfect solution for those who want to become more focused and productive on a daily basis.
You Don’t Have to Give Up a Room
If you’re thinking you can just modify one of your existing rooms in your house into a workspace, where are you going to put everything that currently resides in this room? With only 24% of garage owners currently using it to store their cars, as mentioned above, this annex is a great solution.
Your Garage Becomes the Perfect Place for Client Meetings
If your business requires you to meet with clients, or perhaps meetings with freelance employees, your garage transforms into the perfect place for this meetup. Garages don’t just have to have up and overs or roller doors, you can install a bespoke, hinged garage door that opens just like a front door. This keeps your office space separate from your house while still looking professional.
