How Do You Make A Bespoke Garden Office More Welcoming?

When most commuters envision a dream bespoke garden room, they picture an oasis in their 

own backyard, perfect for enjoying the first bloom of spring and the languid heat of a beautiful summer night, either alone or with guests.

These are all laudable goals and ambitions for a garden room, but for others who want a practical space they can use all year round, garden rooms also make for excellent home offices, as long as they are designed with your working needs in mind.

Whilst it can be easy to treat every single office job that can be done at home as having the same needs and using the same tools, every person and every job has its unique needs that it is important to keep in mind.

The first, and most important step is to make sure you invest in a comfortable, ergonomic office chair and desk combination. A big mistake that is commonly made is choosing a comfortable chair and a feature-filled desk that do not fit well together.

It is important not only to ensure that your body is suitably supported and you do not have any long-term health implications but also it is essential to keep focused on the job at hand.

One reason why people get distracted at work, wherever that may be, is because they are in pain and discomfort, so minimise that as much as possible. 

The big advantage of a garden room is that it is designed with natural light in mind, so as long as your desk is positioned in a way that avoids glare, you can enjoy the mental and physical health benefits of natural light.

To that end, it is also ideal to invest in some kind of adjustable blinds or shutters to ensure that the level of light entering the space is comfortable for you.

Finally, commit to the workspace. Whilst it can be tempting to have a temporary hotdesking site, if you plan on working from home for a long time, the space needs to make all of the little tasks your job requires as easy and effortless as possible.
