New research shows how much a garden office adds to the value of your property

The latest study by find-a-tradesperson platform Rated People indicates that a garden office is one of the top ways of adding value to your property. Its annual Home Improvement Trends Report suggests that the top 10 most value-adding garden improvements for 2021 plus how much they'd add are:

1: Swimming pool £7,707

2: Home office garden room £5,325

3: Summerhouse £5,249

4: Gym/studio room in the garden £5,107

5: Bifold doors/French windows to the garden £4,654

6: Outdoor entertaining area £4,286

7: Decked patio £4,227

8: Paved patio £4,083

9: Greenhouse £3,805

10: Mature plants/trees/flowers £3,716

Adrienne Minster, CEO at Rated People said: “Our gardens and outside spaces have been a lifeline over the past year. For many of us, outside spaces have gone from being somewhere we might spend a bit of time when the weather is nice, to an important extension of our homes which have allowed us to see friends and family when it might not otherwise have been possible. It’s easy to see why homeowners and homebuyers now place more value on outdoor spaces.

"41% of those working from home told us they didn’t have a proper desk, and 24% said they were embarrassed by their background on video calls. So, it’s no surprise that 38% of us want to improve our home offices in 2021. The number of ‘home office’ jobs posted on Rated People more than doubled in 2020 and 43% of UK residents say they plan to work from home more than they did before even if COVID-19 were to completely disappear, so we’re definitely expecting this trend to continue into 2021 and beyond."

The study's analysis of home offices on Instagram showed that 'Scandi' styling was increasingly popular in 2020, and neutral colours, house plants and simple furniture look to be the main trends for 2021.
