What are the advantages of an above garage home office?

There are a number of advantages and benefits to creating a home office space by extending into the space above the garage. This type of home extension can add a whole new room, or two, depending on the size and shape, and you should consider making this space a home office for a number of reasons, including:

  • Save space- if your home office is currently crammed into your kitchen, living room or bedroom you may be in need of some more space. By creating an above garage home extension, you can add usable space to the property, and move your home office equipment to save space and de-clutter other rooms. This is also great for increasing concentration levels too.
  • Second floor- by using an above garage home extension as your home office, you will be working from home on the second floor. This itself brings a number of benefits including having fewer distractions. This is because you are further away from the main home rooms, and are less likely to be disturbed by others while working. It also means that you are less likely to distract yourself with other tasks that need completing, instead of working. A second floor office can also have a more inspiring view, and more natural light too, which is sure to keep productivity levels high.
  • Design to your specifications- if you have any requirements of your home office, your above garage extension can be tailored to meet these.
