5 Reasons why you should make the most of Working From Home

Remember the days when we would battle on the tube to get a seat? Or desperately cling onto the train, trying not to lose our balance and bump into strangers anyway on the way into office? Almost seems like a distant memory recently in light of the pandemic. But this new 2-min commute to my home office and new way of working has inspired so much more beyond community spirit, solidarity and modern communications with family and colleagues.

From House Party app to Zoom, we’ve all found a new companion in our electrical devices. And this month, we’re offering £500 worth of e-vouchers to spend on electrical equipment or furniture when you reserve at one of our new developments.

So, why take advantage of this? Well here’s why…

Reason #1: It’s free!

Ok – maybe an obvious one, but in a world where nothing comes easy or for free, it’s nice to get a helping hand; especially when you’re moving home and have new remote-working requirements.

Tesco said it best – “every little helps”.

Reason #2: Return of the new norm

With the world returning back to some sort of normality and online orders beginning to pick up pace as well as the housing market still moving, it’s a good time to choose a home that really suits your needs, and benefit from the £99 refundable holding fee without missing out.

Select a home knowing that certain layouts like those at Patchworks might offer a good space for you and a partner to work from home with additional privacy of separate rooms and without featuring in one another’s zoom meetings.

Reason #3: Your home is your oyster with 1-bed apartments

Although it can get lonely, the truth is that with spacious 1-bed apartments, single buyers have the flexibility to work in a number of spaces and with a number of different backdrops. Take Colindale in north London – with inset and protruding balconies, communal gardens, spacious living / dining areas and generously sized bedrooms, you have many “working” zones to relish. Enjoy a permanent desk and computer set up in the bedroom, or use a new laptop to conveniently work in different areas around the apartment.

Reason #4: Turn your spare bedroom into a guestroom / study

As well as London Help to Buy, the 2-bed home at The Gallery is included in this month’s promo offer. Which means that buyers interested in living in one of the capitals’ most creative communities (which is also pretty centrally located) can transform the spare bedroom into a dedicated home office. It’s certainly spacious enough for a simple desk, comfortable chair, new laptop and potentially a versatile sofa bed to accommodate for visitors when the lockdown laws are lifted. And with fibre optic provisions already in place, your new working space can benefit from fast and efficient connectivity

Reason #5: Work / Life Balance

With most of us working from home, it’s sometimes hard to switch off after 5pm. And it’s important to be able to do this now, more than ever to make sure that our minds are taken care of.

So another way to benefit this months’ offer is to earmark an electronic treat like a new TV to fit your new living space, a tasty coffee maker, a sound system to play music in the background during and after work or even something as simple as a new fan or comfortable furniture; or all of the above if the £500 will allow!

It’s your treat on us, so make the most of it.
