A garden office could be just what you are looking for if remote working has become your current nine to five. As nearly all workplaces made the decision to shut due to Covid-19, many of us have had to find ways to make working from home, well... work. And while a space at the dining table or an improvised desk at your dressing table can work for a few weeks, as the weeks go on, a dedicated office will sound more and more appealing.
If you already worked from home, it might be that your current home office does not offer enough room for you, a spouse who has now become a remote worker, and all the kids trying to avoid homeschooling. If you have a spare room, great – if not looking to the garden is the way to go. And it means you can still have some separation between work and home, even if the commute is only a few steps from your back door.
We have rounded up some great home office solutions. From simple cabins available for delivery in the next couple of weeks, to fully bespoke options that are definitely more involved but well worth the investment, you are sure to find something to suit your new WFH life. Scroll on to see the best options, or for more advice about what you are allowed to build in your garden, check out our guide to garden rooms – it might surprise you what is allowed without planning permission...
