All You Need to Know About Turning a Home Extension into an Office
Working from home is the new normal which means creating a comfortable and practical office space is essential for many homeowners. You may be thinking about extending your property to make way for an extension or perhaps you have an existing space that would be a great setup, either way, a home office is a great asset to have.
Here’s what you need to know about turning a home extension into an office.
Where should your home office be?
If you’re thinking of kitchen extension ideas, then adding a home office to this space could be a great shout. There are many locations where your office could go but you need to consider the placement carefully (although you’re free to move it around). An office downstairs can be a light and airy space, for example in a room at the front of your home or to the side of your kitchen.
Why is a home office a good idea?
As mentioned, changing work trends now mean that working from home has been adapted by more and more businesses. A home office is a brilliant idea for those working completely remote or following a hybrid model so you don’t have to make do with insufficient work set up such as your kitchen table or sofa!
A home extension can provide the extra room you need to create a quiet space that’s perfect for working. Whether you’re working at a computer all day or on client calls, separating your living space from your work space will provide a much-needed balance.
How should I decorate my home office space?
It’s also important to consider the aesthetics of your home office. You may want a home office that is decorated to fit in with the rest of your home, especially if the extension has other uses. Alternatively, a clean and bright space is ideal for helping you stay focused, and comfortable. You can add personality to the room with prints, shelving and more but don’t forget the basics like investing in a good-quality desk and office chair.
