Garden offices are a great way to add extra space to your home, and can be less hassle and cheaper than building an extension. But does a garden office increase the value of your property?
Due to Covid 19, many of us are now working from home, and as the restrictions begin to ease, a lot of business owners and employees are looking at ways to continue WFH and give up the daily commute altogether. Whilst a lot of home workers have had to make do with setting up their office at kitchen tables, or in smaller spaces within the home – it’s certainly not a viable option for long-term homeworking. If it’s not possible to create a suitable working space within the home, or you just want to separate your home and work life, then building a garden office might be the perfect solution.
If you plan to sell your home in the near future, you may be worried if having an office in the garden will reduce the appeal and saleability?
The good news is that after various studies, experts have suggested that building an office in your garden could increase your property value by around 5-10%. But would you need a specific buyer? One who is looking for additional space to work from home or run their business from? Not necessarily!
There has been a big rise in homeowners creating structures in their gardens for multiple uses, including garden bars or pubs, home studios, home gyms, summer houses – the list goes on! What’s great about building a garden office is that it can be used for multiple purposes and can easily be renovated inside to make it fit for different purposes.
