More people now than ever before are working remotely, and it is a trend that is likely here to stay. A quiet workspace is an obvious necessity when working at home, but is there more to it than just having a suitable room? Check out these tips to elevate your work-at-home experience when building a new dream home.
Light, Bright and QuietWhether your job requirement is full-time home-based work or a hybrid work schedule, successful remote working starts with a floor plan that includes a home office, plus flex space if two or more people are working from home. No room for a home office? Our design team gets creative by including a built-in desk within a pantry, mudroom, or other underutilized nook or cranny. Having a specific and dedicated workspace is a significant component in staying on task and happily working from home. At Connecticut Valley Homes, we listen to your needs and design inviting, comfortable home office spaces that allow you to focus.
Storage and Lighting Are EssentialClutter erodes productivity and decreases motivation, so make decluttering a priority. Focus on storage as part of your strategy to create a feel-good space that minimizes workday stress. Closets, cabinets, and shelves are must-haves. With new construction, these features can be built-in. Did you know that statistics prove that people are happier, healthier, and more productive in spaces with glass doors, windows, or skylights? Set up your home workspace with access to natural lighting. However, if you do not have this option, use adequate full-spectrum lighting, which improves color perception, visual clarity, and mood.
Fill Your Space With Good VibesMost of our clients who work from home take breaks between tasks to decompress during their workday. Even in the smallest of spaces, it is possible to carve out a specific spot for some personal refresh time. Designate a "chill area" in your home office that gets good light and accent with throw blankets, pillows, and photos of family and friends for that extra touch of happiness. Our team has the design knowledge and talent to create an inviting, relaxing, and cheerful workspace that adds ease and balance to your work life and daily routine.
