In truth. There are many more than five advantages when choosing coworking space instead of the traditional office space for lease, and perhaps we will detail some of the others in another article. For now, though, let’s concentrate on the Top Five reasons why we believe coworking space is a brilliant alternative to the traditional office space for rent.
We are the Fort Worth Design District, and if you call us at 817-439-3224, we will tell you all about coworking space available at Paddock Place Office Suites in the Fort Worth Design District. For now, though, let’s turn our attention to the Top Five Reasons To Choose Coworking Space.
What is coworking space?
For those not aware of coworking space, we can tell you that it is a central location where people from various companies rent office space by the month rather than renting an entire office for rent by the year. Common areas like a lunchroom are shared, utilities and WiFi are provided, it is, in every way like a traditional office, except you are in a shared space and you only rent by the month.
#1 Much less expansive
The first reason, then, for choosing coworking space is that it is much-less expensive. Renting office space for the year is costly. It requires a major outlay of cash initially, not only for rent but also for signage, furniture, decorations, and on and on. With coworking space, there is no first and last month fee. There is no damage fee. There is no long-term commitment. There is only the cost of that office by the month, and in most cases utilities are included in that monthly fee.
#2 Sense of Community with coworking space
One of the major drawbacks to working at home, as we found out during the pandemic with so much remote working, is that people felt lonely after a time. They missed their coworkers back in their traditional office. They missed bouncing ideas off of their coworkers. They missed the water-cooler and lunchroom chatter about families. Coworking space offers community. It offers the opportunity to rub shoulders with real people, and it has been shown that productivity increases in coworking spaces as opposed to the work-from-home business model.
#3 Offers Great Flexibility
Coworking space means you are not tied to the office daily. You can work when you want, even during the months you are renting it. Rent it for a month, but only show up for ten days . . . for fifteen days . . . it is entirely up to you and there are no penalties involved. Work four-hour days. Work six-hour days. Again, there are no rules in the coworking scenario.
#4 Eliminate isolation with coworking space
Ask any home-based business owner, or a traveling business executive who works out of the hotel room: job isolation is a real thing, and it can lead to unhappiness and decreased productivity. Coworking space eliminates isolation.
#5 Put on a professional face
If you are a home-based business owner, you know that working out of your home is not an ideal, professional scenario. Meeting clients or customers in your kitchen screams “tacky!” A coworking space allows you to meet clients and customers in a professional setting, and that might mean success over defeat.
