What to Consider When Adding a Home Office
The impact of the Coronavirus will likely be felt for many years to come – and as people continue trying to stop its spread, working and learning from home has become the “new normal.”
With that in mind, many individuals and families have taken steps to adapt. One key consideration is having a functional area that is conducive to working and/or “attending” virtual classes.
As with any large project, up-front planning is essential. Otherwise, you may find that your initial idea(s) aren’t going to work the way you had hoped. Once you know exactly how much space you have, you can move forward with other components of the project, such as the size and style of the desk(s) and other furnishings.
It is also important to ensure that there will be enough electrical outlets for computers, printers, and/or other devices that are needed. If more outlets are required, be sure that they are placed in the area(s) where you intend to keep your electronic equipment.
Depending on your specific situation, you could even get creative when it comes to your home office design. For instance, built-in shelves and/or a folding desk could be added to a smaller space, which could make the room appear more open. You could also consider adding skylights to give the area more natural light.
The addition or creation of a home office can provide you with other benefits, too, such as the potential to increase the marketability of your residence and make it more desirable to purchasers if you decide to sell it.
