Updated: Apr 8

Are you not quite sure if you want to take the next step and become a member of a Coworking space? Don’t worry you are probably not the only one! This blog will go over the pros and cons of Coworking spaces, allowing you to decide if taking the next step and becoming a member is the right choice for you.

Are you looking for an alternative to working from home or the traditional office? Coworking is a great option for remote workers, freelancers, and entrepreneurs to get their work done. Working from a coworking space offers a variety of benefits, such as networking opportunities, access to amenities, and more. But while there are benefits, there are also some drawbacks that you should be aware of before making the switch.

The Pros:

Professional Space

The biggest benefit of working from a coworking space is having access to a professional space to meet with other entrepreneurs and clients. It is also a place where you can go to focus and get work done other than home. Coworking spaces are designed for collaboration, so you can easily set up a meeting with someone in the space or utilize the conference room for a presentation or workshop. Being surrounded by all these other entrepreneurs and business professionals creates a collaborative and inspirational environment.

Free Amenities

In addition to having a professional space for meetings, working from a coworking space also provides free access to built-in amenities like fast wifi, a printer, and a coffee bar. This makes it easier for you to stay connected and productive throughout the day.

Professional Networking

Social and career development events are also offered at many coworking spaces. This gives you the opportunity to connect with other professionals in the space and increase your professional network. This can be beneficial for entrepreneurs and freelancers who are looking to expand their businesses.

The Cons:


Before committing to a coworking space, it’s important to consider the drawbacks as well. One of the cons is the potential for distraction. When it comes to Coworking spaces there are always other people around which can make it difficult to focus if you’re easily distracted.


Another drawback is the cost. Coworking spaces can be pricey and often require a monthly (in our case) or yearly membership. This can be a deterrent for people who are on a tight budget.


Finally, commuting can be a challenge if you’re not located near the coworking space. Depending on your location, it can take time to get to and from the space and it can also be costly depending on your mode of transportation. Most of our members live within walking or biking distance.

Overall, coworking spaces are a great option for remote workers, freelancers, and entrepreneurs who are looking for an alternative to working from home or the traditional office. There are numerous benefits to working from a coworking space, but it’s important to consider the cons as well.
