How a Garden Office Pod can Change Your Life

We create many garden rooms for different uses. 

Some people love to work out and want their own personal gym or yoga studio, others love to socialise and crave their own garden bar which they can host friends and family. 

One of the most popular uses for a garden room, and a garden pod, is an office.  

With many more people working remotely due to the Covid-19 pandemic, garden offices have boomed in popularity, and it shows no signs of slowing down. 

So why are so many people flocking to have their office in their own back garden? And how could a building like this change your life? 

Let’s take a look. 

What is a Garden Office Pod?

A garden office pod is a self-contained, modular workspace that is installed in a garden or outdoor space. It is designed to be a flexible and cost effective alternative to traditional office space, and offers a private and comfortable workspace that is separate from the main living area of a house. 

At InFrame, our modern garden office pods are designed to be small, compact, and easily customisable to suit our customer’s needs and budgets. 

Our office pods come with many features, including insulation, electrics, and ventilation, making it a cosy place to work throughout the year.

The Benefits of a Garden Office Pod 

If you work form home, or want a place from which you can study in peace, a garden office pod is ideal for you. 

They come packed with benefits, including: 

Increase Productivity

There are many things that can stop us from being as productive as we would like to be at work. When inside your home, there will be plenty of distractions. With an abundance of items that can catch your eye, and the constant movement of family members, it can be a distracting environment. A garden office pod provides a dedicated workspace away from the distractions of your home and this is the ideal place to leave the distractions behind and focus on nothing but work. 

Improved Work Life Balance

A healthy work life balance is vital for ensuring a good mental health and attitude to work. If you work in your home, it may feel like you never escape your workspace. If you travel to an office, you may find hours of your day are spent commuting. By having a separate workspace in your garden, you can create a clear separation between your work and home life, making it easier to switch off from work and relax in your personal time. 

More Flexibility

A garden office pod offers versatility and flexibility in more ways than one. Firstly, you can be more flexible with your work time. As your office is only in your back garden, you are much less rigid in working hours than you would be in a traditional office. You are also flexible in terms of how you design your office. This is your own personal space, so you can create in a way that suits you. Do you prefer a standing desk? Or perhaps you want an abundance of natural light? You design your garden office pod how you want it. 

More Eco-Friendly

If you are an environmentally-conscious individual, you may be concerned at what your commute to work is doing to the planet. Having a garden office pod is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and live a more sustainable life. For lovers of the planet, there isn’t much better than spending time in your garden in the fresh air as well, and a garden office pod can provide this. 

Add Property Value

Garden office pods are a great investment, and will almost definitely add to the value of your property. Not only is it a huge selling point to potential buyers who work from home, but you are also increasing the living space of your property. Experts believe the value added is often 1.5 times the value of your garden room, so as soon as installation is done, you may already be in a profit. 

A recent study actually found that a garden office on average adds over £20,000 to a property, resulting in huge savings.

The Importance of a Good Work-Life Balance

One of the most important things a garden office pod can provide is a healthy work-life balance, and this can make a huge difference to your attitude towards work. 

If you can keep up a good work-life balance, then you will see many benefits, including: 

  • Improved job satisfaction – With a balanced life, you are much more likely to feel satisfied and fulfilled in both your personal and professional life, which can enhance the overall quality of life. 
  • Recharge Your Batteries – We’ve all been there. When work has got on top of us and we feel drained and exhausted. With a good work-life balance, you get time to take a breather and engage in leisure and social activities. This allows you to recharge and keep a positive attitude towards work, which will in turn enhance creativity and increase productivity. 
  • Improved Physical and Mental Health – A good work-life balance will help to reduce stress and prevent burnout. This will allow you to focus on your mental and physical health more. You will also find the time to exercise, which is proven to have great effects on both aspects of your health
