Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, coworking spaces were gaining popularity in 2019 before falling during periods of lockdown, but there has since been a surge in demand for coworking spaces. With the prospect of saving money, flexibility in layout and contract duration, and the opportunity to develop important connections in thriving entrepreneurial communities, coworking spaces offer a range of benefits for businesses of all sizes.
For small businesses in particular, the benefits of coworking spaces are substantial, but for businesses that have regular meetings or phone calls, a quiet and private space might be required. Fortunately, many coworking spaces offer phone booth meeting rooms or pods that are often soundproof to offer respite from loud office environments. Especially for meetings that only involve one person and don’t require an entire boardroom or meeting room, these innovative spaces are well suited.
Although phone booth offices are not designed to replace a cubicle for a full day of work, they offer a number of benefits without taking up significant floor space.
Phone booths provide a private space where you can make confidential calls without worrying about being overheard. In addition to their soundproof qualities that make them suitable for phone calls, many designs use frosted glass or privacy screens to allow calls without distraction or disturbance.
Phone booths are soundproofed to help reduce noise levels, so you can focus on your conversation without being interrupted by the sounds of the surrounding environment. The soundproofed environment is not only beneficial for those involved in meetings, but also for those in the rest of the coworking space, as they wouldn’t be disturbed by a loud call in the phone booth office.
Phone booths are typically located throughout the coworking space, so you can easily find one when you need it. Unlike traditional meeting rooms or boardrooms which are often limited in number due to their size, and often occupied by other workers, office phone booths are smaller, more convenient, and easy to implement. The portability of office phone booths means they can adapt with any changes in layout to the coworking space.
Phone booths can be used for a variety of purposes, such as making calls, conducting meetings, or simply taking a break from the hustle and bustle of the coworking space. In addition to their use for meetings, they also offer an escape when staff need a quiet break to unwind or recalibrate throughout the day.
If you are looking for a private and soundproof space to make phone calls or conduct confidential conversations, phone booth offices in coworking spaces can be a great option. Offering a number of benefits including privacy, soundproofing, convenience, and flexibility, businesses can take advantage of private meeting spaces without costs associated with larger meeting rooms or board rooms.
