Running a Home Business Isn’t Working for you

Client calls interrupted by the kids. Lack of space driving you to host business meetings at local cafés. It’s easy to get frustrated when you’re trying to make a business work but you’re having to do it without a dedicated space. Perhaps you’re simply fed up with commuting to an ugly industrial estate, and crave a better work life-balance? Or maybe you dream of having a garden room to use as a dog grooming business but don’t know where to start? Whatever your reason for wanting to run a company from home, isn’t it time you created the professional setting you’ve been thinking about in a garden room for business?

Your garden room can contain everything you’d expect from renting an office space. So, staff and clients alike will feel at home, even at the bottom of your garden.

Business Ready Garden Rooms: Tech to Spec

That’s why all of these come fitted as standard. Of course, if there’s something more specialist you need, then all you have to do is ask. Our designers are on hand to help you include all the smart tech your business needs to thrive, our expert electricians will then fit and test every element to ensure it’s all working perfectly before we head off.

However, for that extra peace of mind, all the windows and doors we fit are of a residential standard and accredited by ‘Secure by Design’. We can also fit Ring Doorbell and any other security systems, if required, so just ask.

Using a garden room for business, and more

Multi-use garden rooms for business and pleasure are a great way to beautifully solve two problems in one. Get more space for the family to relax and enjoy each other’s company, choose a 2-room option to include garden storage or perhaps even add a home gym. Speak to our expert designers about maximising your garden room so that it’s a win-win for home and work life.

However, if you do combine business and pleasure, it’s worth noting that you will have to consider the impact this might have on your personal vs business costs. If you run a limited company for example, to validate a garden room as a business expense it must be solely for company use. So, any additional rooms would likely need to be at your own personal expense.

It’s also worth noting that there can be implications / requirements regarding building control if you run a business from your home. It’s always worth checking with your local council, or reach out to one of the eDEN team for advice and guidance.

Garden Room for Business Start Ups

It might seem like a big investment, but starting a business in a garden room could be a better option than signing up for a long term rental property, or paying regularly for an impersonal desk and chair in a hotdesking venue. While it’s true that the upfront cost might be larger, the garden room itself will add value to your property and will enable you to save in the long run, making it a strong investment.

Setting up a business in a garden room also allows you much greater freedom, often making it a great way to get your business off the ground. We have a range of beautiful off-plan designs to help get things up and running quickly, you can also personalise the space to reflect the needs of your business and ambitions.

Whether you need an office space for one, or a larger show room or studio space to host clients, we can help you find the most affordable option to suit your exact budget. During our consultation process, our designers can guide you through the standard premium features of all our rooms as well as all the suitable upgrades. Plus, our experts can talk through anything else you might need to know, like business rates for garden room offices.

Do I have to pay business rates on a garden office?

Business rates for garden room office may apply. It is worth speaking to your local
authority to check before you go ahead. But in most situations, garden offices and small businesses are usually offered significant relief on business rates.

Can I claim for an office in my garden?

Can I reclaim VAT on my garden room?

If you pay VAT as a partnership, Limited Company or Sole Trader, the good news is, you can reclaim VAT when running a business from a garden room. That includes the cost of installing it, and all the fixtures and fittings.

Can my Garden Room have Multiple Rooms?

Our multi-room garden offices are more popular than ever. They’re an attractive and affordable way to add value and space to your property, while giving you the lifestyle you desire.

The exterior is finished exactly as the main building meaning the finished look is every bit as stunning, and fantastically useful too.

Can my Garden Room Have a Toilet or Shower Room?

We fully understand why you ask. Who doesn’t want to be able to work in comfort and not have to pop to the house every time you need to take a natural break or have a shower after using the gym. It is all absolutely possible but does tend to add significant cost to the project. That said, done in the right way, the use case may well justify the extra investment. Talk to one of our experts to discuss the options.
