The world has become more virtual due to the pandemic, with people forced to stay at home, and companies having to transition to being run by remote employees working from home.
The virtual office is also becoming a popular model for those businesses that can be run virtually to save money and keep costs low. This is especially true for freelancers and business owners where the founder is currently the only employee.
But being at home all the time, doesn’t always foster a great working environment, which is why many people running their businesses from home look for day office rentals.
In 2020, 41% of the U.S. workforce freelanced either part or full-time.
Day offices allow someone that has a virtual business to work in a professional atmosphere and it has all kinds of perks, such as:
- Ability to interact and network with other professionals
- A quiet and professional working environment
- Ability to meet with clients or interview new hires
- Different environment for inspiration and to “mix things up”
One interesting phenomenon that occurred when college students were locked into virtual learning due to the pandemic, was resorts in places like Hawaii offering virtual learning packages, so at least students could learn virtually in an enjoyable environment.
What about virtual offices and daily office space? Is there an Airbnb office space site like there is for Airbnb vacation rentals?
Finding Your Perfect “Airbnb Office Space”
One of the advantages of working virtually is that you can work from anywhere with power and an internet connection. For example, during a power outage, it’s not usual to find multiple people working from a Starbucks or Barnes & Noble with working Wi-Fi.
It makes sense that when you’re looking for a day office to rent, you should be able to find one in a location that’s either convenient or near popular attractions, such as the Washington DC area. Imagine being able to go on a quasi-vacation and tour the Smithsonian at the same time you’re keeping your business going.
Beyond going somewhere completely different, just having a place near home that allows you to work in a professional office environment when you need to can be a refreshing change from working at the kitchen table.
It turns out that there are a number of ways you can find offices from all over the country (or the world) online.
Looking for Airbnb office space? Here are several websites you can try.
While Airbnb is designed to rent vacation homes, there are some listings for daily office space and private office rental.
For example, one in Farmers Branch, Texas lists a private room for rental that has a full conference room set up with whiteboard, coffee maker, and microwave.
Liquid space is a website that allows you to search for desks by the hour, daily office space, or rentals for meeting rooms, monthly offices, and more.
You can find day office rentals in just about every major U.S. city and internally in places like Sydney, Australia and Toronto, Canada.
Do you need a place for a photoshoot for your company brochure and website images? Looking for a place to host a band practice or an important client meeting?
Peerspace is a unique “Airbnb” office space search site because it includes all types of spaces beyond your traditional office or meeting room space. This includes spaces designed for professional photoshoots, workshops, popup retail events, and more.
You can find affordable workspaces in exciting cities using DropDesk. This site is designed to facilitate finding day office rentals for entire virtual teams and includes the ability to track usage in real time.
All workspaces are vetted by the platform to offer amenities such as meeting spaces, coffee, and high-speed Wi-Fi.
WeWork is a site that allows you to pay-as-you-go and choose daily office space from over 190 locations in 17 major cities. The site also has hourly office rentals for those that just need a meeting space for a short period of time.
The platform has options for office spaces that are accessed during normal business hours as well as those that can be accessed 24/7.
Deskpass has thousands of day office rental options throughout the U.S. It offers plans for both individuals and teams. You can rent desks by the day, meeting rooms by the hour, or private offices on demand.
The app allows employers with virtual teams to track usage patterns and what types of spaces teams are using the most. Companies can also handpick the space options their employees have to choose from.
