Qualities To Consider When Choosing a Coworking Space

Mar 02, 2022

Coworking spaces, globally, have grown by over 200% in the last six years, and beyond 2 million people prefer them.

 

If you fancy joining them, here are some elements to look into when choosing a coworking space:

  

Location

 

The location of the workspace affects both travel time and cost. Factor in the distance from:

  1. Residence to the workplace if you are a remote worker.
  2. Coworking space to clients if you visit clients often or vice versa.

 

Similarly, an exquisite transport network linking to the workplace eliminates delays. However, locations with superb transports tend to be expensive — strive for balance.

 

The environment around a workspace tweaks in some variants, for example, the presence or absence of a restaurant nearby determines whether packing food is necessary. Parking spaces are crucial too.

 

Some other environmental factors that affect your productivity include lighting, noise, moisture, and temperature.

 

Office Amenities

 

Amenities in the workplace should barely affect your budget; if a coworking space has a majority of them, a few cents for the others is a reasonable stretch. Besides, the equipment level of an office plays a role in the pricing.

 

Some amenities to keep in mind are:

 

  • Wi-Fi
  • Power backup
  • Air Conditioner
  • Printers
  • Chargers
  • Meeting rooms
  • Security
  • Cafeteria

 

Flexibility

 

Subtle adjustments in working spots improve productivity compared to sticking to a desk for a whole membership term. Look for a coworking space that allows you to sit wherever.

 

If you come across a workspace with multiple offices in a city under one membership payment, consider it.

 

In addition, a coworking space should allow you in during your productive hours. Such workspaces, apart from their cafeteria and front desk services, are open for 24 hours.

 

Inhabitants

Tenants hosted by the coworking space could turn out to be valuable allies. Coworking spaces could present to you such vital networks.

 

Take time to visit the workplace and scan for mutually beneficial like-minded people.

 

Some coworking spaces do, occasionally, hold weekly community functions attended by successful and influential individuals. Seek them out for your business exposure.

  

Budget

 

Priorities and income flow determine what membership fee you are willing to pay for an optimum return on investment.

 

Give precedence to coworking spaces that offer trial periods. Spend some time there and get to evaluate whether the coworking space is worth the price.

 

Financial matters, more often than not, are a matter of ego management. Don’t let pride come between you and your money.

 

Conclusion

 

Getting the value for what you pay for is half the equation; utilizing it is the other.

 

Ensure the coworking space adds more value than working from home or a traditional office.
