Make Working from Home Work for You

Millions of people have been forced to work from home since the coronavirus outbreak in what could be described as the biggest remote working experiment in history. 

It is without a doubt that working from home can have a positive effect on both your work and life balance, and in a ‘post-crisis’ world you may want to continue this way of living.

Studies have proved that the most common benefit of home working is the elimination of the unrelenting commute. By not traveling to work you can save time and money all whilst having a positive impact on the environment. 

As well as making far better business sense, the extra time may also  provide more you with opportunities to see your family, exercise, cook healthier meals, complete household chores or simply just catch up on an extra hour of sleep.

The technology capability to support valuable working from home is solid and available, however, you do need to be in the right ‘zone’ to be happy and productive. Slouching on the sofa with a laptop or hunched over the kitchen table is far from an ideal work environment. 

By creating a separate office environment you can retain a professional and productive workspace whilst ensuring privacy and less opportunity to be distracted.

Have you considered setting up a home office as a separate structure from your home? This will create a clear distinction between home and work life, especially if your work demands a quiet space away from family life and a barking dog!

Could it be a possibility that you may need to invite colleagues or clients to your home office in the future?  A light and airy garden office, stylish garage conversion, or beautiful home extension could be the perfect place to create the professional arena you may need. 

MP Architects can support you with identifying the best position to situate your home office and create the perfect professional working environment that will retain your privacy and increase productivity.  Also, where necessary we will obtain quick and simple planning permission if your outbuilding falls outside the boundaries of permitted development.

We are here to help you to commit and define this new way of working life.   Your new home office will help you focus and increase efficiency, whilst also giving you the opportunity for mid-morning coffee breaks with your partner, walking the dog at lunchtime, or just clocking off at 5pm to relax in the evening sunshine with a delicious G&T.

Making your home the best version of itself during COVID-19

So, life in general is on hold, schools are shut, lunch with friends is off-limits and a quick pint down the pub has to be postponed.

That’s right, the Government has asked us to stay inside to protect the NHS and the health of the nation.

Some say this is a time to sleep and binge on box sets or even learn a new skill. Whilst it is true that we should all use this down-time to recharge and re-boot our own systems, it is also a golden opportunity to make the most of this recess and stop procrastinating over house plans that have been just an intention and not a reality due to your normal everyday time constraints.

You may love your home, but being hunkered down in it right now with your nearest and dearest could have you thinking that there simply isn’t enough space for you all. 

Recent Government advice is that all house moves should be put on hold wherever possible until the COVID-19 situation is less demanding, that coupled with the inevitable temporary slump in the economy, a new home is probably off of the menu.  

So, how about you use this period of self-isolation as the perfect time to consider how you can add value or improve your home to make it the best it can be.

Have you been considering some renovations in the form of a top floor extension, conversion of a garage, an extra bedroom, and bathroom, a garden room, home office or if you’re lucky enough an in-house haven just to get away from it all?

MP Architects LLP is a local experienced company that can help you improve your home to make it the best version of itself.  

Our dedicated team are working remotely but just as effectively throughout the COVID_19 crisis to support and advise homeowners with ideas, drawings, layouts and plans.  

Our extensive knowledge means that we can advise you on planning permission requirements, specialising in the recently relaxed rights of permitted development, so you may not even need to go through the traditional planning permission channels to create your perfect space.

Please contact us at any time via email, telephone and our easy to use virtual meeting resources to discuss how we can help you design your perfect project.

We would love to hear from you.

Stay healthy.
