Working from home? You’re not alone! As many professionals continue working remotely, a stylish, functional home office has never looked so good—and here at Kargar Homes, as your trusted custom home builders in Volusia County FL, we have the insights and expertise needed to help you craft an ideal workspace in your custom home! Read on for a few of our best tips.
The perfect placement
When crafting your home from the ground-up (literally!), you get the benefit of picking the perfect placement for your home office. This can depend on a number of factors (do you have kids you'd like to keep an eye on as you work, preferring a more open-concept office, for example? Or do you prefer a quiet, out-of-the-way study where you can think, work and host virtual meetings with ease?). There is no right or wrong answer to this question, but whatever works best for your home office needs and preferences.
Room with a view
Studies show that natural views of green and blue hues (think a beautiful tree, or your very own pool) can help promote feelings of calmness and clarity - which we can definitely use more of in our home office environments! Consider this benefit and boost your home office with a spacious picture window looking over a view you love (tip: on those days when you want to avoid any outdoor distractions, block-out drapes are your best friend).
Built-ins for a better workflow
Another big benefit of building a custom home and home office, is that you can add built-in features that make working (or studying, or creating...) from home even easier. Consider features such as a beautiful bookshelf or window seat, to name just a few.
Inspiring, personal flourishes
Your home office is your own! Make it personally inspiring with anything that sparks your creative energy - family photos or kids' artwork, motivational messages or a splash of color. It's up to you.
Seating for all of your office tasks
The ideal home office should address every aspect of working or creating at home - so instead of sticking solely to one office chair, add some options like a comfy window seat or armchair nook where you can read or relax between meetings or projects!
Whether you are sprucing up your spare room to double as an office, or are starting from scratch with a brand-new custom home, we hope that these tips help you accomplish it all in style!
