Would you benefit from a home office?

Homeworking, avoiding the cost of the commute, small talk with colleagues at the kettle, and of course, being able to wear slippers all day. Thousands of employees up and down the country have worked from home for years, (around 1.6 million people according to the office of national statistics) but now, thanks to COVID-19 restrictions, thousands more are also enjoying the benefits of working from home. Around 46.6% of all UK employees were working from home from April 2020.

However, as comfortable as it may be working from your kitchen table this doesn’t need to be the place you work forever, even if you’re working from home.

The beauty in a home office is that these rooms/buildings are so versatile, they can be transformed into art studios, home gyms, storage rooms, workshops, or indoor play areas when a home office is no longer used or wanted.

This home studio was created using Cladco Corrugate sheeting in Moorland Grey

Do I need planning permission to build a home office?

When it comes to building anything on your property, it is always recommended that you seek professional advice before pursuing.

Most homes in the UK do not need planning permission to build on their property. However, some places such as listed buildings, conservation areas, and sites of scientific interest may need approval before any buildings can be erected. Please check prior to purchasing.

What are home offices, what do I need to make it a home office?

Before you start looking into planning permission, looking at materials or even start building your home office. Think what is it you need, do you need a large desk with lots of natural light, a drawing board, whiteboard, comfy chairs, a coffee machine?

Unlike a traditional office set up, where you were confined to a desk a chair and a monitor, a home office is a place you can be free to work how you do best.
