Working from home is great, but sometimes you just miss the camaraderie and productivity you were able to achieve without distraction in a traditional office. Coworking spaces are starting to fill that gap by giving remote workers a dedicated work area, as well as the chance to collaborate, network, and simply socialize with others. On top of this, many spaces offer neat amenities such as kitchenettes, conference rooms, and private phone booths. And of course, coffee.
