With our modern technology it has become more and more common for people to work from their homes. As the ability for so many people to work from home increases, the demand for a home office also increases. Many remodeling projects are becoming more focused around adding or repurposing a room or areas of the home for a home office. Where it may seem more comfortable to work at home it is still essential to have a productive work environment. Future Vision Remodeling would like to share a few tips and considerations when you decide it’s time to remodel your home in order to make way for your home office.
Choosing the Right Location for Your Home Office
For those with multiple options as to where you should locate your home office, you may want to consider space, a view, and an area far enough away from distractions. For those with kids or a spouse at home during working hours, they can become a little distracted at times. Additionally, you will want enough room that you do feel crowded and have plenty of space to store your office supplies, documents or whatever else you may need for the nature of your profession. Keep in mind that a good view helps make the office feel more open and relaxed. Many home office remodels will have a large open window installed.
Home Office Storage Cabinets & Organization
As stated before, you will want enough space to store you work items. You may want to consider office cabinets, organizers, and filing systems. There are custom built-in storage compartments available to give the office a more proper purpose and function. A productive work environment starts with the organization of the room and your work supplies.
Modern Office Power Supply & Ceiling, Desk & Other Lighting
Many remodeling projects, especially home offices, are centered on the proper power supply. Having efficient power for computers, printers, fax machines and other electrical devices is essential. Additionally you can exchange regular power outlets for USB outlets to charge devices such as tablets, cell phones and Ipads. Lighting is very important for a proper work environment. You will want a bright enough work space so you’re not straining your eyes to focus. Light can also add to the mood of your work space. Most will add light in their home office, in places near cabinets and the desk. Most will opt for a soft white light.
Popular Office Paint Color Schemes for Focus & Concentration
At the end of every remodel your walls will be covered by the color and design theme of your choice. Pick the right color to help your personal productivity. Some have opted to use white with darker accent colors to help keep their mind clear. Others need help relaxing. In such cases, blues, grays and green colors are used. Some find they need help in finding the desire and energy to work. Warm colors such as reds, yellows, and oranges are used. At the end of the physical remodel, find what colors will help you remain productive in your home office.
