With more and more people working from home out of necessity, many businesses are likely to adopt telework as a normal part of their business model going forward. While some of us are content to simply do our work at the kitchen table or on the couch, many professionals swear by using a dedicated space to do their job. A home office is a perfect way to separate your work life from your home life, especially if you work from home. Consider a home office for your new home addition, and be sure to add these features for maximum productivity!
Plan a Home Addition That Adds Enough Space
For many people, work requires space for a computer, a desk, a chair, and a few other odds and ends. However, you may be the type of professional who needs multiple monitors, a drafting table, or even a whiteboard. Make sure to build your home addition big enough so that you can fit all of the tools you will need to work from home.
Keep Your Home Office Separate
At a minimum, your home office should have a door between it and the rest of your house. Ideally, you should tuck your office away in a low-traffic area of your home, or — better yet — build an office that is separate from your home altogether. Not only does this give you privacy, but it also helps eliminate distractions from the rest of your home and reinforce the distinction between your work life and your home life.
Add What You Cannot Do Without (and a Few Extras)
If your job, like many others nowadays, requires internet access and electricity, make sure that your addition has both of those things. Plan a layout with sufficient outlets for your electronics, and make sure that your WiFi or wired internet extends into your home office. Additionally, many professionals find that things like office plants and natural light help them stay relaxed and focused. A window in your home office can help give you that natural light. You might also want to consider including things like a coffee maker or mini-fridge to help fuel your work.
