Home Sweet Home-Office Space
5 Reasons Why You Should Improve Your Home Whilst You Stay At Home.
London’s family run premier loft conversion specialists LMB Group get straight to the point with their Top 5 Reasons to invest in a brand-new Home Office in 2021.
Save Money on Travel
Whether it is that extra hour in bed, the fact that you can Zoom call in your underwear, the unsupervised breaks, or the measly £6,500 a year you will save on travel, working from home certainly has its perks.
Comfort and Routine
Out of 4,700 people asked: “82% of workers are said to be ‘fed up’ with the twists and turns of bouncing between the office and the sofa, leading to more investments in personal comfort in a bid to control their own destiny”. The correlation between our unique routines and productivity is paramount! Some of us have confessed to some shocking WFH stories, including using ironing boards as work desks and kneecaps as coasters, all whilst their ‘diva’ cats are unashamedly hijacking their video calls.
Ensuring you are comfortable and settled in your surroundings with a pot of hot coffee can never be underestimated.
It has been said that the average person is up to 22% more productive when in comfortable settings. It also solves that ‘what will I wear’ anxiety, meaning you will only have to dress half of your body. Just make sure it is the correct half if you want to keep your job.
Not A Luxury, Now A Necessity
In a year that transformed us all into one step short of a prisoner, being let out for ‘one form of exercise a day’, we have learned a lot about our living situation in ‘the year that stood still’- whilst we marched on.
Vastly different surroundings were heightened and the nation’s differences when it came to wealth and comfort became increasingly apparent, dividing us into a nation of fortunate people on one hand who had their own home office study, gym and balcony to those on the other who had to improvise quickly, performing yoga moves in the lounge and allowing themselves a ‘treat’ of fresh air every Thursday, when they clapped the NHS on the doorstep.
Your Mental and Physical Health
Did you know that performance pressure when being overshadowed by a superior, relationship conflicts within the office and not enough time spent with the family are the three biggest causes for concern when it comes to work related stress? A Home Office study (once complete to include tranquil comfort) will quite literally eradicate all these issues in one fair swoop, providing you with the motivation station that you deserve, tailored exactly to your temperature, surroundings and needs so that you can professionally perform to your potential.
Increase Your Property Value
As well as working from home being considered for the long haul, extra space (especially a home office study) will add value to your property. In 2020, it was estimated that an extra room in London can add as much as £40,000 to your home. Factor in the £6,500 you have already saved on travel and you have just made yourself £46,500 without even get out of bed (literally) or, more realistically, out of your pyjama’s.
What was once considered a luxury to invest in a home office has now in the current climate become a necessity, going as far as to say it is a no brainer for 2021.
