New Year, New Career? How Loft Conversions can help you Work from Home

With the start of the New Year, many people begin to think about a fresh start, looking for a new job or a complete career change. If you’ve been thinking about working from home for a while, but are being held back by the lack of home office or studio space, have you considered a loft conversion?

When it comes to loft conversions, Muswell Hill home-based workers can create the perfect workspace to suit their needs. They offer a complete blank canvas which you can tailor to your exact requirements, and they also offer a separate space within your home to allow you to retain some work-life balance and increase productivity. If you’re looking for a career change this year, here’s how loft conversions can help you to work from home:

Custom Design your Workspace

If you’ve had an idea about what you’d do as a work-from-home career for a while, you’ll probably also have an idea about what sort of workspace you’d need to make it a reality. Loft conversions are ideal for those careers that might require something a little bit special, such as a craft or artist’s studio, an eBay business, or a home hairdresser’s salon. This is because they can be created to your exact requirements.

If you need plumbing for hairdressing or pet grooming, then speak to your loft conversion specialist about installing plumbing and pipework to fit your requirements for hair washing. Or if you need plenty of natural light to craft jewellery or take photographs by, ask for a quote for skylights, dormers or floor to ceiling windows. You can also make sure that you’ve got space for large worktops or tables where required, and custom-built storage.

A Place to Work

The reality of starting a new business for many of us is having to work long hours in our spare time alongside a ‘day job’ to pay the bills. If this is the case for you this New Year, having a dedicated workspace will really increase your productivity.

It’s so tempting to sit down in front of the telly with a cuppa once we’re home from a long day at work, and then you may never pick up the laptop, or get started on that project. If this sounds familiar, then just think about having a dedicated workspace in your newly converted loft: you’ll be shut away from your everyday life, it’ll be designed to your requirements and will be a physical embodiment of the dream you’re hoping to achieve. We can guarantee that your enthusiasm for your new career will increase dramatically with a loft conversion home office!

Boost your Creativity

New businesses need to be innovative to survive, and you’ll no doubt have your own brand ethos and unique selling point. But new companies can be ever-evolving, and if you want the ideas to flow, then design your new loft conversion workspace to include a breakout area.

A relaxing area within your workspace can really help to get the creative juices flowing. You can make it as quirky as you like, and you can also include the likes of a coffee machine, so that you don’t have to keep going downstairs to the kitchen during those late night bursts of productivity!

If a new career from home is part of your New Year’s Resolutions this year, then consider the opportunities presented by a loft conversion. Contact Bespoke Lofts for a quote today, and start to dream about the career path that lies ahead!
