Planning An Addition For A Home Office

by | Feb 23, 2021 | Blog, Renovations

The demand for flexibility in where and how people work has been building up for decades, but truly exponentially expanded with the pandemic. If you are given the opportunity to experience working at the comfort of your home, you should be prioritizing setting a home office. And it might be time to start thinking about planning an addition for a home office.

Why build an addition for a home office?

Building an addition for a home office is very important because it promotes improved productivity. When you’re home, there are too many distractions that can have a negative impact on your productivity. There’s the kids, the television, chores, and other things that are difficult to resist. Having a home office also lets you have a comfortable and stable space to do your tasks. You can get pieces of furniture that are conducive to working for long hours. A dedicated space for work also gives you a sense of distinction between work time and personal time. It helps in instilling discipline to yourself which is a very important trait to succeed. 

Here are some tips when planning an addition for a home office. 

Consider the size of the room

Your home office should at least measure 60 inches x 84 inches. This dimension is enough to let you move around the room with ease. 

Choose the right design

When planning to build a home office, it’s important to take into account not just the structure itself, but also its interior design. Make sure there is enough light and natural light, not just for the purpose of energy saving but also because it helps manage your body’s sleep-wake schedules, making you more productive and efficient. Find furniture that you are comfortable using and that keeps you organized. 

Avoid visual distractions. 

It’s important to place your desk where you can concentrate the most. If it’s facing another room of the house, you’ll end up getting distracted either by your family or possible chores to accomplish.
