Many of us have had our fill of working from home on a permanent basis. Yet for some, the appeal of home working has been the silver lining of the last twelve months. Whether it’s days when optimum concentration is required or when our pets need a little more TLC, there are clear benefits to staying put from time to time. This has resulted in a noticeable shift in the work / life balance equation.

It’s apparent that businesses too are realising the benefits of home working – many are now drawing up working policies with greater flexibility included. For property hunters, this means seeking out a home that will help them to maximise the convenience being offered in the jobs market. So what should a modern home be equipped with to help us make the most of this new world of work?

Light and bright

While you may venture out to work in other spaces from time to time, your home itself needs to be geared up for your working-from-home stint. The one key component of a positive and productive work space? Light.

The floor to ceiling windows in every Leon House apartment will make sure you’ll never feel claustrophobic, even when you’re head down, focusing on an important project all day. And with such inspiring views of London to take in when you do emerge for a break, you’re bound to get an uplifting boost when you need it most.

Shared spaces

If you struggle to keep the motivation going when working in your own space – or you simply want a change of scene or to see another face – a shared workspace could be the perfect tonic. Leon House residents benefit from an airy and open-plan workspace on the ground floor, which is free to use whenever needed and perfectly suits those who are looking for a working community to feel part of during their day-to-day.

With multiple stations equipped with WiFi, plug sockets and comfy chairs, you’ll feel just like you’re working in a modern office environment alongside your peers and neighbours. The only difference is that it comes with a truly unbeatable commute time.

Professional edge

If you’re working from home but need to meet in-person with a client or colleague, we also have a solution. Simply book the free-to-use meeting room with the concierge team on the Leon House front desk. The meeting room comes equipped with a large boardroom-feel table, and wall-mounted screen that you can hook up to for presenting. If your get-together is a more social affair, the book-able dining room might be a better fit.

Take a break

Living in Croydon means Leon House residents are never stuck for breakfast, lunch or dinner options. During the working day, home workers can easily grab lunch at one of the popular local cafes – some of which even provide exclusive offers to Leon House residents. For those days when you need some fresh air but can’t step away for too long, the skylight garden on the top floor could be just the ticket – it’s also the perfect place to unwind in the sun after a long day.

If you’re interested to learn more about the flexible lifestyle Leon House allows for, get in touch with our team who will happily answer any of your questions and can book you in for a one-to-one tour.
