When we consider the office working environment, it is important to utilise any outside space as well as the inside floor space. Working outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine can help to boost your mood as there is an increase in serotonin levels that make you feel happier. This is why many businesses are now using garden pod furniture to create an additional outdoor working office. Below we explore why garden pod furniture can be great all year round and why every office should have somewhere for workers to work outdoors, no matter how much room they have to use.
Garden pod furniture is not just for the summer
Today’s modern garden pod furniture is designed to be used throughout the year. They are made to withstand strong winds, torrential rain, freezing snow and damaging UV rays. You decide where best to place the garden pod and then leave it there, all year round. The pods are made from treated timber, are well insulated for winter use and are also fully heated.
Additional breakout space
If you only have a small office but have access to a large plot of land outside the office, then it makes perfect sense to use this space to create further working areas for your staff. A garden pod is an ideal solution for creating a much needed extra breakout area or meeting room, away from the hustle and bustle of the main office.
Lunch room or outdoor cafe
A garden pod can also be incorporated with outdoor furniture to create a large outdoor lunchroom or cafe. This would work especially well with the use of a large canopy. The garden pod could provide indoor seating while additional garden chairs, waterproof sofas and benches could extend into the garden for seating during the summer months.
Use it indoors
There is, of course, the option to use your garden pod indoors. It doesn’t have to be used outside. Many indoor offices now want to bring the outside in with the use of natural wood, plants and even artificial grass. This is a great idea if you have a large internal space and like the use of creative working practice. A garden pod will give you extra space while inspiring creativity.
