How Garden Sheds Make the Perfect Home Office

Studies have shown that a home office can decrease stress and improve productivity. Working from your home also contributes to a lower carbon footprint, which is critical for fighting global warming. By eliminating the need to commute, you will end up adding over 100 hours to your home life. There are also the finance and health benefits and the reduced stress of being in your own home.

The only issue with doing your work duties at home is distractions. If you don’t have an organised office, there are plenty of distractions that can affect your productivity. The capacity of staying focused on your tasks is a crucial issue regardless of your location. At home, you’ll likely be distracted by the tv other family members. Likewise, if you do not have a separate working space, you may even discover that you are overworking.

To have a successful experience with working from your house, you must set up a separate home office. Working in your living room or kitchen is not ideal as it gives you plenty of reasons for procrastinating. You need a place like a garden shed that gets you far away from any distraction.

The Solution: Installing a Small Garden Shed Penrith

Installing a small garden shed can provide the ideal home office space. It is located a few seconds away from your house and is made specifically for you. However, it requires an excellent setup, including the décor and choice of furniture. For starters, get a quality desk and chair for maximum comfort while you work.

Having a few outdoor intervals during your workday is highly beneficial, with massive improvements to your productivity and concentration. A garden shed office, gives you both a defined area to work in and also allows you to take frequent intervals to get outside and enjoy some much needed fresh air for rejuvenation.

The design you choose is also critical. Consider getting an optional bookshelf installed and filling it with your favourite books. If you love great tasting coffee, then this is your chance to ditch the unpleasant work stuff by having your very own quality coffee machine. Putting in all this extra effort will make a massive difference for your home office.

Next, your tech must be up to par. Without an efficient WiFi or internet connection, you will be pretty much stuck when doing your job. Also, you should get a reliable computer or laptop and set it up. A laptop is ideal for a garden shed office as it gives you more portability.


Working from home has some massive benefits, but only if you make the shift correctly by first setting up a small garden shed office. You should get a better balance in social and work life while significantly increasing your productivity. Also, with the extra convenience of a home office, you should finally have the chance to avoid unhealthy fast foods and work out more often.

  • I just want to advise you of the terrific service one of your shed builders provided to us when last week he built the shed we ordered through your Penrith office. Dave and his young helper provided first class workmanship, he was very polite, and the clean up was a pleasure compared to most other tradesmen. We are soon going to order a further shed via Penrith and I have no hesitation in recommending your products. Thank you Dave, and thank you to Col Western Sheds.
