Before we look at the different sectors, let’s briefly touch on the financial reasons why small businesses and startups are looking at Garden Rooms as an alternative to traditional office, and shop premises. 

Before writing this post we Googled ‘What is the average cost of office space in oxford’ and we found the Oxford Office Space Prices website.

We also Googled ‘What is the average cost of running a business’ and found the following article:

The two highest costs for a small business are property rental and transport with the average small business spending £5.5k + per year and owning nothing at the end of it. You could have paid for a Garden Room within 4 years based on the above not forgetting all the other benefits that come with a Garden Office/Studio.

So what business sectors are we seeing the most demand from? Below we have detailed the top seven:

With ample natural light and a serene environment, these spaces provide an ideal setting for one-to-one training sessions or small group classes.

Garden rooms are increasingly becoming a sanctuary for counsellors and therapists.
