With working from home on the rise, many of us will be thinking of ways we can elevate our work-from-home space and create a home office that’s not only functional but comfortable and inspirational too. Having a space that’s away from the hustle and bustle of your home is appealing for many reasons and it allows you to separate work and home life effectively.

Here are our top tips for transforming your garden shed into a home office!

Secure the shed

Your typical shed wasn’t designed to be used as a garden office so you will need to consider security first and foremost. If the door is flimsy consider replacing it with something sturdier. It’s also a good idea to invest in a solid YALE lock to ensure equipment such as computers and hard drives aren’t at risk.

Weatherproof your shed

Corrugated roofing

Give it a fresh lick of paint

Heating, cooling and insulation

Power it up

Another less-exciting job is ensuring you have an electricity supply. It’s best to let a professional handle this as they will be able to run the supply from your home and ensure this is done safely and above board. This is probably the most expensive part of the transformation from shed to office as there will be a labour cost involved but it’s a one-off task that will mean you have electricity for years to come - a worthwhile investment!
