Why Working From Home Is Increasing?

No matter where in the world you are, COVID-19 has triggered a mass exodus from the office space we know and love and sent us packing our bags all the way home. Many have now settled into the remote working life and while lockdown may be easing, this style of working looks set to continue for a long time to come. 

Though children may be returning to school this September, those in offices will still be actively encouraged to continue working from home and it could remain that way for at least another year’s time

On top of the indefinite change in the working environment, some companies have even begun to look at continuing a working-from-home regime as a new permanent change. Why? Well, despite moving away from the corporate office space, many companies are seeing an increase in productivity by a whopping 20% as people become less distracted by work colleagues. Cat’s it would seem, don’t tend to talk back as much.

With that in mind, it begs the question, ‘Are you equipped to work from home long-term?’

A More Permanent Space

While many of us have made-do with a space at the dining table, this isn’t a long-term solution. With the likelihood of working from home becoming a more permanent way of life, it’s only natural that a more permanent and might we add, work-friendly space is created, which is exactly where we come in at Clapham Construction Service

For most, however, finding space is the biggest issue. We can’t all afford the luxury of using extra space lying around outside and even if it is there, do we want to take away what little private outside space we have? 

While some will undoubtedly opt for a garden office, complete with electrics, insulation and full double glazing, these will still cost in excess of £10,000 – £15,000. What’s more, the money you invest in a garden office will add precisely £0 to your property’s value. A loft converted into an office however can and often is the equivalent of 1-2 extra bedrooms and in some cases can add an extra 20% more value to your property.

Loft Conversions Make The Ultimate Office Space

Although attic construction costs more than a garden room, you’re actually making more money in terms of increased capital in your home, not to mention the fact that a loft conversion is an ideal solution for those wanting a home office, thanks to its practicality of it. It will without a doubt be one of the lightest rooms in the home and provide you with some of the best views possible from your home. 

Not only is the loft usually the largest room in the house but it’s also already there for you. It requires utilising none of your valuable outdoor space either and with the right loft conversion design, can offer you a light and peaceful work environment. Couple this with amazing views above everyone else and it just makes perfect sense.
