1. It’s yours and no one else’s
One of the best things about having a home art studio is that it’s your own space. If you’re living with other people, it’s important to establish that it’s your working space. Whether you live with others or by yourself, a home art studio is a place where you can be creative and productive. This is your place where you can shut yourself off from the outside world and churn out lots of good work. You may be lucky to have an entire room as your home art studio, but even if you have to make do with part of a room as your studio, it’s still space that’s yours and yours alone.
2. It’s cheap
Having a home art studio means you don’t have to fork out money regularly to rent a studio outside of your home. Lots of artists enjoy having their working space away from home so they rent studio space, but obviously it’s a lot cheaper to just have your working space at home so you don’t have to worry about renting out studio space, as well as potentially paying for transport. If you don’t mind working from home, having a home art studio will save you a lot of money in the long run.
3. It’s accessible
Your work space is there whenever you want to use it. Whenever you feel like getting some work done, no matter what time of day it is, you can settle down in your studio and crack on. If your studio space is somewhere away from home, you might not be able to access it that easily. Most artist studios will be open 24/7, but depending on how far away from home it is, there’s the issue of getting there to consider, and getting there can take time. Having a home art studio could save you a lot of time.
4. It can help your schedule
If you work away from home, you have to factor in the time it takes getting there. With a home art studio, you don’t. Having no time spent travelling means you’ve got more time to yourself. Let’s say you rented a studio somewhere 30 minutes from home and you go there three times a week. Switch to a home studio and you’re saving 3 hours a week. Those 3 hours could be spent getting more work done or doing chores around the house. Not only can having a home studio free up more time, it can also help with your schedule because you can work whenever you want to.
