Home extensions are always an exciting prospect, but with so many to choose from, and so many different materials and designs available to work with, knowing which might be most suitable for your needs can be a challenge.
If you’re planning to add a space to your home that will be used as a working environment or office, the best solution may well be one made of glass. Traditional glass conservatories may not suit, but a modern glass office designed by a firm specialising in structural glazing could be the best environment in which to work. Here are a few reasons why:
A glass office improves wellbeing
Our wellbeing is hugely important, and choosing to work in a glazed workspace can actually work towards improving it. By increasing the amount of exposure to natural light, we can improve our sleep and circadian rhythms, and even improve our mood and psychological health — all of which is conducive to quality work.
We spend so much time at our jobs that it can be hard to stay on top of our wellbeing while we’re working. Adding a glass office could be the perfect way to ensure your workspace isn’t making things worse, and actually contributes to making you feel better.
It can make you more productive
Getting plenty of natural light isn’t just great for our overall wellbeing — it’s hugely beneficial to our productivity, too. When we work with plenty of access to natural light, our levels of focus and our efficiency improve significantly.
A lot of this is tied into the aforementioned boost to wellbeing; but significantly, we have more energy when working with plenty of daylight, and our ability to perform well is boosted. If you work at home, this means that working in a glass office extension could be the perfect solution.
It offers plenty of utility
Part of the joy of working at home comes in the fact that your workplace is also your living space, and the setting for your ‘daily grind’ is the comfort of your own home. A glass extension workspace doesn’t just work well as an office environment, but for all kinds of other purposes too.
The inclusion of a central table and chairs could make the extension the perfect place to host guests. It could be used as a relaxing reading space; and it could even be a great place for the kids to get their homework done after school, in peace and quiet!
It looks aesthetically pleasing
One of the main reasons many people choose to improve their home is aesthetic. Even the most practical of solutions should add something to a home visually; and in this regard, a glass office could be ideal. By adding a modern, refined aesthetic to your workspace and home, you can improve the visual impact of your property immensely.
It can increases property value
A big appeal of extending or improving your property is the fact that any additions tend to increase financial value. With more people than ever working from home – and those figures only set to increase as people look to buy property – home workspaces will become more desirable. The addition of a glass office not only increases the visual appeal of your home, but also its financial value, improving its appeal to potential future buyers.
