The number of co-working spaces in London is on the rise. Freelancers, startup entrepreneurs, self-employed professionals, SMEs, and even employees from companies with actual offices are frequenting co-working venues. But for freelancers, why sit at home alone looking at the same four walls when you could be sitting in a creatively inspiring place alongside other like-minded individuals?
Co-working spaces essentially blur the boundaries between leisure time and work time, but this doesn't necessarily lead to unproductivity. On the contrary, the majority of people who choose to work in co-working spaces find themselves inspired by those around them, inspired by the sense of community spirit, and brimming with energy and ideas, which boosts the quality of their work.
