Tips for Turning Your Shed Into a Functional Outdoor Office

Don’t Settle for Middle-of-Nowhere Internet Connections - Boost Your WiFi

Ensuring you never miss an email or phone call while working in your converted home office is as simple as acquiring a WiFi extender. This simple piece of technology helps to connect to your current signal, and extend it to bridge between the router and your outdoor structure.

Furniture That Can Double as Indoor and Outdoor Comfort

Many of us have experienced days where it is simply too beautiful outdoors to spend the day clacking away on the computer indoors. Why not optimize your outdoor home office shed by incorporating a few weatherproof pieces that can help you make the switch as needed? 

Several poly models are equipped with adjustable backs to keep you comfortable, and can easily be placed outside to take advantage of sunny days. 

Choose the Lighting and Aura That Helps You Stay Productive

Another feature for an outdoor home office that is often overlooked is lighting fixtures. As you might recall from prior office experiences, the right lighting is everything! Opt for LED lighting for a cost-effective option that is also versatile to suit your needs.

If you are in need of an overhead lighting source, Halogen options might be your best investment. These are also beneficial because you can also use these for adjustable spotlights and track lighting.

Creative Extras: Ideas for Polishing Your Converted Office

Who says office swag is for large companies? Embrace your professional persona by showcasing it in a way that makes sense for you. 

  1. Pegboards Can Showcase Your Style and Double as Storage - Although you don’t have to treat your office as a storage mecca simply because it is a converted shed, everyone can benefit from a place to hide clutter or paperwork. Use simple pegboards to showcase your diploma, and house your loose office supplies, lanyards, or keys. 
  2. Skylights Enhance Your Peace of Mind On Stressful Days - What better way to take advantage of the summer sun, than creating a window dedicated completely to it? Existing sheds or new models can usually be modified to accommodate this upgrade with ease.  
  3. Wire Your Office Shed With Surround Sound - Open the windows to enjoy nature’s music, or shuffle your own playlist by wiring your converted shed with surround sound. Visit your closest audio store to ask about which setup would be the best for you.
