Coworking spaces have seen strong demand in recent years as more and more people want to work more flexibly and independently. Coworking spaces offer a new type of work environment that combines shared offices, business centers and cafes, providing an alternative to traditional rentals and leases. This gives freelancers, startups and larger companies the freedom to use professional workspaces that adapt to the way people work today.


Why coworking and what are the options?

One of the main features of coworking spaces is their community orientation. Members work for different companies, startups or independently, creating a relaxed, professional and creative atmosphere. This atmosphere also offers numerous benefits such as community events and plug and play facilities. Coworking spaces also offer a lot of flexibility when it comes to choosing a workspace, whether it’s a hot desk, a fixed desk, or a dedicated office.


Generally, several options are offered for renting workspaces in coworking spaces:

  • Hot Desk: A flexible option for freelancers who only need occasional workspace and do not require a permanent computer workstation. Space is assigned daily, and you need to sign up early to get a space with specific requirements (e.g., window space).
  • Fixed desk: an option for a permanent workstation rental where you can leave your own equipment at the workstation and design the desk to suit your needs. Typically, one shares the space with other companies, which encourages knowledge sharing. This option is suitable for individuals or for larger teams, as you can easily rent more desks in the same space.
  • Private office/own space: a more expensive option for renting a private office within the coworking space. Here, you have more peace and privacy and can set up the office to suit your own needs. Since you are still in a coworking space, you benefit from all the networking events, break rooms, and general innovative atmosphere of the space. This option is very flexible because you license the space instead of renting it, and the notice period is usually only one month.


If you are considering moving into a coworking space, it is important to know the different types of coworking spaces that are available, as each has its own style and atmosphere. Some coworking spaces are perfect for creatives, others are more technology-focused, and still others are great all-around spaces. The offerings also vary from space to space.


Advantages of using coworking spaces.

The benefits of coworking are numerous and varied. One of the main benefits is the ability to have your own office in a professional environment, which can give your business the boost it needs to start and grow. In addition, coworking gives freelancers the freedom to have flexible access to a more professional workspace that allows them to isolate themselves from home and increase their productivity.


One of the biggest benefits of coworking spaces is the flexibility of cost. You can rent a desk for a day or rent a permanent desk or your own office for a longer period of time. This flexibility helps businesses better control costs and focus on growth without worrying about long-term commitments.


Coworking spaces also offer access to great amenities like kitchens, dining areas, WiFi, furniture and state-of-the-art AV equipment, conference and event space, and outdoor patios and bike storage. By collaborating with other businesses and teams, you can make valuable connections and form partnerships to enhance your business services.


Overall, coworking offers a cost-effective and flexible way to create a more professional work environment, increase your productivity, network, and start and grow your business. Coworking spaces have changed the modern work environment and will continue to play an important role in the future.
