Home Grown Offices

Out of the home and into the garden with a garden office

Tired of the distractions of indoors? Build yourself a tranquil work base with a garden office

If you would prefer to work in a home office in the garden instead of using the kitchen table, read on ...

You need to keep home and work separate - if you have to walk down to the bottom of the garden in the morning it is like going to work, and you leave all the domestic hassle behind without having the hassle of the commute.

Some people buy a special outbuilding with garage space underneath and and a little romm on top that can be used as the office in the garden. But you do not need to splash out. You can use the garden shed, insulate the walls inside and decorate it.

Keep the garden room versatile if you want it to double as a part time studio, hobby room or den, or for kids doing homework

If you want a dedicated work environment, make it clear to your family and friends that this is your working area and should be treated as such, just as if you were going out to work rather than going down the garden to work. You should also keep to this rule yourself. The garden can be a huge distraction. Its easy to end up staring out of the window - or worse you pop outside to do some watering and then wonder where the afternoon went!

A lot of designer garden offices have huge windows looking out onto the garden, but this could be a mistake, as the view of the garden could be too much of a distraction. You could arrange your garden office with a small garden around it but with no easy way into it - just a window that frames the living picture outside.

The future of the garden shed

B & Q the home improvement retailer confirmed that sales of garden sheds are rising steadily with women often in the forefront in oruchasing garden buildings as they are the major decision makers behind many home improvements projects

The new generation of garden buildings, some of which even include saunas, provide a comfortable space for the family to enjoy and are a good way to expand a home as planning permission is seldom needed. .
