Why Should I Rent A Coworking Space When Working From Home Is Free | 580 Executive Center

Anyone who works remotely or owns a business knows one thing: saving money is important. Even if you like to spend on little luxuries in your personal life, spending money in regards to business needs to be more well thought out. Instead of just opting into things right away, you probably take a while to think about whether or not this investment is worth the money you’re about to spend.

One of the questions we often get about coworking is “Why would I spend money on a coworking space if working from home costs me nothing at all?”. From an outsider's perspective, this might seem like a tough question to answer. However, we’ve worked with many remote workers over the years who can tell you exactly why paying for a coworking space has paid off in many different ways.

Supplies ON Demand

The first reason coworking beats working from home is pretty logical. Coworking spaces aren’t just empty spaces with a whole bunch of loose office chairs lying around. They’re fully equipped office spaces with staff members, cleaning crews, and basically anything that you could expect from an office environment. That means we have fast wifi networks, printers, supplies, and even unlimited coffee for when you hit that 2pm wall. All of these things are definitely available for you to purchase for your own home, but any good coworking space comes with all of them, hooked up and ready to use. You won’t have to think about transforming your personal space into a makeshift office. Which brings us to our second point…

Your Home is Your Home

For anyone who’s never worked from home, you might think it’s a dreamy world of working in sweatpants, with netflix in the background and snacks galore. However, this isn’t exactly an accurate depiction. One of the worst parts of working from home is that you’re forced to give up that feeling of relief when you come in the door of your home at the end of a long day of work. Often it can be difficult for remote workers to destress or even stop working at the end of their work day. Since you don’t make any physical transition, you might feel obligated to continue working, or even keep thinking about work when you should be spending time with family or relaxing. Coworking provides some separation between your home life and your work life.

What’s My Motivation?

On the other end of that point, creating a space that is dedicated to work can help you get more work done. When you’re at home, there are many distractions and comforts that can pull you out of a working mindset. It just happens. You remember that your favorite series dropped a new season today, or the ingredients in the fridge start calling to you. When you leave the house and enter a coworking space, your mind knows it’s time to work. There are no distractions, and you can get straight into that project you’ve been working on.
