Home-based creative studio
Having a home-based creative studio offers the ultimate opportunity to pursue your own passion and create artworks in the comfortable environment of your own home.
Setting up a well-equipped studio requires some planning and attention to ensure you have an inspiring and functional workspace. Here are some key considerations and answers to frequently asked questions.
Can I simply start a creative studio at home?
In many cases, you can certainly start your own atelier at home. Having a dedicated space to work on your passion can be very special. The available space is an important consideration. Ensure you have enough space in your garden house to bring your creative vision to life and consider the necessary storage space, worktables, and space to showcase your artworks.
There is also the practicality of setting up a home studio. Do you have adequate lighting and ventilation? Do you prefer to work outdoors, or do you prefer a private and enclosed space? Do you have the right materials and equipment? These are all factors that contribute to creating an inspiring and functional workspace.
Do I need a permit?
Whether you need a licence for a home studio depends on your location and the nature of the activities. In some cases where you regularly receive clients for exhibitions, for example, or use heavy equipment, a business licence may be required.
Permits and licences needed for a home studio may vary by municipality.
Is the studio ready-to-use?
