Whether you have changed jobs and no longer require the use of your home office anymore, have found a better solution for working from home, or have simply decided to no longer work remotely and therefore no longer need to have a space to work from, finding a new use for the space is tricky.
Outdoor home offices became highly popular as they provided the perfect solution for those looking for a quiet, private and pleasant working environment, but perhaps didn’t have the space within their actual home or simply wanted to keep some separation between work and home.
If you are retiring your office for the time being, it would be a shame to let this excellent additional space go to waste, therefore repurposing the area into something more functional you can still enjoy is important so you can continue to enjoy your garden rooms without needing to work from it.
One of the easiest ways to reutilise the space is by creating an outdoor living area for you and your family to enjoy. These can be great for spending time during the summer and even for hosting guests.
If you had an office in the space previously, it is likely already furnished with a lot of home comforts, therefore changing the furniture and adding a few more additional touches should be relatively easy and quick to do.
You may even wish to make the space a guest suite for when your friends or family come to stay. Many people enjoy hosting but prefer not to have guests stay in their actual homes in order to give both themselves and their guests' privacy.
Utilising a garden room as a guest space is perfect as it allows your loved ones the opportunity to visit you while still giving them their own space to enjoy.
