Whether you’re including a home office with a new construction or adding onto an existing structure, here are some helpful hints for a successful project.
A home office renovation can breathe new life into an outdated space or add value to an under-utilized room. Here are a few great candidates for this type of project:
The home office should be a quiet, dedicated space that supports concentration. Locate the workspace away from “noisy” social areas such as the family room.
A “detached” space is one way to create a sense of separation between work and play areas. Good options include a room over the garage or small outbuilding in the backyard.
Whether it’s used for work or studying, every home office needs plenty of storage to minimize clutter. Built-in items also free up more floor space to make the room feel bigger and less cramped. Consider options such as:
For clients needing a place to brainstorm, other great features include whiteboards, pegboards or magnetic boards.
Make it easy for clients to stay in touch with their own customers and colleagues while working at home.
A home office requires abundant electrical outlets and internet connections to accommodate multiple devices.
Another great idea is to include videoconferencing and presentation capabilities, such as built-in cameras and large, wall-mounted screens. Just make sure the space behind the camera looks fabulous for those remote collaboration sessions!
Home office decor needs to strike the right balance between the personal and the professional.
From employers offering more flexible schedules to the rise of freelancing and the “gig economy,” more and more people are finding the home office to be an indispensable part of the 21st century home.
