These days, American workspaces are taking more forms than ever. For those who have outgrown crowding around a table at a coffee shop but who don't mesh with the idea of leasing a brick and mortar space, a small prefab backyard studio might be the right answer. If these common problems sound like you, read on!

You Work From Home But Want Separation

Work-life balance is important, and if your business operates out of your home, it can be hard to manage where work ends and home begins if your home office does double duty as another space in your home. Modern backyard studios offer a sense of separation that allows work to feel like work and home to feel like home, which may ultimately help the activities that take place in both spaces run more smoothly.

You've Outgrown Your Home Office But Aren't Ready for a Storefront

Not only can working from home disrupt your sense of work-life balance, but if your business is growing, it can also be difficult to keep entertaining clients in your home office. If renting a dedicated storefront doesn't feel like the right move for you, a backyard studio can provide a middle ground that both allows for growth and gives you a professional space to meet with clients. Its modernist architecture and affordable price point make it an attractive option that you can customize to suit your needs.

The Open Office Concept Is Cramping Your Style

Listen, we all thought office floor plans free of cumbersome, ugly cubicles were a good idea, but research has shown that the lack of privacy that comes in those spaces can create more harm than good. In fact, in a study of 65,000 participants across five continents, half complained about the lack of privacy such office plans afford. Distraction due to noises and lack of privacy disrupts workflow. For workers whose workday bleeds beyond the typical nine to five, a backyard office can be the perfect antidote to the anxiety and sapped productivity those spaces can provide.

If you're ready to ditch the open concept or the home office, or even if you want to learn more, a small prefab backyard studio might be the right option for you. Contact Coast Studio to see which option might be right for your business's needs.
