Working in a Coworking Space? What You Do and Don't Need


When you're working on the go or heading to your favorite coworking spot, you shouldn't have to pack up your entire home office to be productive. One of the biggest hindrances many solopreneurs and remote professionals have about switching up their location is all the hassle of moving from spot to spot. But with a little bit of planning, you can trim down the list of what you need to bring with you a coworking space. 



Daily Essentials:

Every job is different, but we all want the same thing: to be able to settle into a deep work session or client meeting with everything we need in easy reach and without feeling scattered. Invest in a nice-looking backpack or satchel and bring just these essentials:

  • Your laptop, tablet, or preferred mobile device
  • A water bottle
  • A charging cable
  • Business cards or other sharable marketing assets—when you're working in a public space, it's always a great time to network


Advantages of Renting a Private Office Space

Many coworking spaces make it easy for you to rent a private office. Most by the hour and by the day. These are rooms where you can securely leave a larger monitor, charging cables, in-progress work, and your preferred style of office chair. If you've always wanted to work in a mix of public and semi-public spaces to break up the monotony but that's never felt practical, an office rental can bridge the gap. The benefits this option provides are:

  • You can bring in bigger hardware and not have to worry about packing up or moving it around. This is ideal for everything from a big screen to a finicky audio recording setup.
  • You can travel light. Carry essential pieces of hardware back and forth but leave everything else in place.
  • You can take breaks from work without packing up. If you have lots of papers arranged in precise stacks, sensitive information on display, or expensive work tools, a private office lets you get up and take a walking break.
  • You can store extras. If you're always nervous about leaving behind a charging cable, a notepad, and other essentials, an office gives you a place to stow a permanent extra, so you never have to go without.


Advantages of Renting a Locker

If you like carrying around the bare minimum but a private office isn't the right solution for your needs, flexible workspaces spaces also have lockers. These are smaller, secure spaces where you can store hardware, documents, a laptop, and even your backpack. You can use your coworking space as a hub while you go to the gym, client meetups, networking events, and everything in between. You can even stow things for different types of work or projects in your logic and then find a spot in your coworking space with just what you need for your current time block. 


Things You Never Need to Bring to Your Coworking Space

Another key advantage of choosing the right coworking space is all the things you don't have to bring with you in the first place. Not interested in renting a private office or a locker, but you need more than a tablet to get work done? Here's what coworking spaces like Quest Workspaces can offer:

  • Printing resources so you can make printouts and client copies on-site without having to leave or rush
  • Hospitality amenities like coffee, tea, snacks, and more, which is perfect for anyone who forgot their water bottle or doesn't want to carry one around
  • Administrative and virtual office service options so you can offload tasks that require a lot of gear—and time
  • A/V equipment for video meetings and big presentations
