The home office has grown leaps and bounds from a computer on a desk in the corner of a room. With more and more people working from home or freelancing on the side, a home office has become an essential space to help keep your professional life organized and separate from your personal life. Just like any reno project, the options for your home office are endless and can seem overwhelming. Here are some things to consider when planning your home office.
It’s important to determine the type of work you’re going to do in your home office space before you do anything else. Knowing the basic needs of the space will drive the type of space you will create. Is the home office specifically for your work, or will it also be a place for your kids to do their homework? Does your work require a certain level of privacy or security? Will you have a lot of physical paperwork that requires filing and storage solutions? Does your work go beyond the computer, requiring space for assembly, packaging etc? Knowing the work that needs to be done will ensure you create a home office space to accommodate it.
Make the most of every nook and cranny
You may think you don’t have the space for a home office area, but it’s possible to define a working area in the smallest of spaces – all you need is a little creativity. Built-in desks and shelving can be customized to fit under staircases, in cubbies and in storage closets, just to name a few. Your contractor can help you identify, design and create an office space you never even knew you had.
