How to renovate your garden shed into an affordable office pod in 2022

2022 sees many of us continue to work from home, due to companies maintaining a flexible working attitude. Therefore, the way we think about our home work spaces has changed.

The kitchen table or tiny desk crammed in next to the spare bed were once upon a time fine when working in pyjamas was a novelty, but as many may never completely return to the office, an adjustment to flexible working must be made. People are seeking solutions for the long haul, in terms of boosting both productivity and the way we feel about our homes.

Research by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) in 2020 showed that 17 per cent of homeowners were looking to create an office space to support working from home permanently. The issue is how to create a quiet space that will allow us to separate home life from work life as many look to permanently adapt to this new work-home life dynamic.

Andy Baxter, MD at Maze says that the company has found “a huge demand for versatile garden pieces, that work in both an outdoor area, and a converted garden shed indoors.” He adds that the furniture can be used regardless of the unpredictable British weather and recommends “something like a high-backed chair, with a footstool, as being perfect for a more casual work from home setup, and will easily work outdoors too.”

“If you need a change of scenery from your usual home office or desk, you may like to consider a daybed or ‘pod’ chair,” says Baxter. “This will provide shade from the glaring sun but is a more comfortable solution than a typical table-and-chairs set-up.”

Whether you live alone, with a partner or in a house-share, creating a unique working space – should you be moving to a permanent flexi-working approach at your company – will ensure you have a separate living and working space which, in turn, will benefit our work productivity and mental wellbeing.

So, if you’re thinking about doing some home renovations in 2022, read on for some inspiration.
