Gone are the days when working in an office or setting up a brick-and-mortar shop were the only ways to do business. The past few years we have seen an increase in working from home, or for those with an entrepreneurial spirit, going out on your own to start a business.

But working from home can be tricky if you don’t have a dedicated office or work area, which is where we can help. A portable cabin from RoomMate Cabins provides the ideal space to set up your home-based business – offering the flexibility you need.

Here are five ways home-based business ideas that would perfectly suit a RoomMate cabin:

1) Home Salon

Setting up a home salon in a portable cabin is an affordable solution for beauty therapists or hairdressers who are looking for a private space to offer their services. Depending on your needs, RoomMate Cabins offer a range of sizes so you can create a beautiful salon experience for your clients.

A portable cabin is perfect for people wanting the flexibility to operate their own salon, across the beauty and health industry in roles such as:

  • Nail technician
  • Barbershop
  • Lash or brow specialist
  • Makeup artist
  • Massage therapist
  • Beauty therapist

2) Freelancer Home Office

Freelancing or contract work is on the rise, particularly for people in roles like Social Media Managers, Digital Marketing Specialists, Bookkeepers or Virtual Assistants. For many freelancers there is no daily commute into an office, but it can be a struggle to find a workspace at home, where you can focus and be productive.

It’s time to stop working from the couch or noisy cafes and create your own home office sanctuary with a portable cabin. Our range of cabins are fully insulated and come with modern lighting, easy power connections, carpet, and curtains – just add a desk or two, set up your equipment and you’re ready to go!

3) Photography Studio

As a photographer or videographer, you probably spend as much time working on your computer as you do creating content – so it’s important you have a comfortable space where you can hide away and get all that editing and admin work done. A portable cabin offers all of this and more right from your backyard – it’s also the perfect option for a small home studio set up!

4) Small Business Owner

Running a small business comes with plenty of associated costs, particularly when you’re starting out. If you are looking for an affordable solution, a RoomMate Cabin is the answer. Here are just a few ways you could utilise a cabin as a small business owner:

  • Office
  • Data room or call centre
  • Packaging/dispatch area
  • Storage
  • Meeting space
  • Studio/workshop

5) Off-Site Office

If you find yourself working in a location where having a permanent building is not feasible, a RoomMate Cabin is a great solution for a temporary or relocatable office space. Whether you’re working on a construction site or at a music festival – having a warm, dry workspace will keep you and your team happy.
