Upgrade your 9-5.

Working from home is here to stay. Today, homeowners are looking at office spaces in a completely new light. Instead of creating a make-shift office in an unused space or bedroom, homeowners want a well-thought-out space that lends itself to a successful remote work home setup. A “zoom room” has also been trending. Here are a few ideas to create a functional workspace in the home:

  •  Install solid-core doors to reduce noise.
  • Enhanced Wi-Fi – locate the Wi-Fi router in a location that will allow for strong internet connectivity in the office.
  • Natural light is key – ensuring the space has plenty of natural light results in improved moods and reduced stress. One study found that 40% of workplaces with natural light experience 3%-40% improvements in productivity! 
  • Proper lighting - Whether you prefer an overhead light, recessed lights or a lamp, it can be discussed before the build begins.
  • Paint – Paint the walls a soothing color or bring some personality into the room with a statement wall color!
  • Storage – think about designing your space to be efficient and eliminate clutter. Local companies, such as Clifton Park Glass and California Closets, specialize in designing built-in workspaces for productivity and function. Optimize storage, hide cords and more!

You want to create a space that combines your personal style and is functional for working from home. If you are interested in creating a space that is both stylish and comfortable in a new home, call us at 518-491-1173 and we are happy to help you.

When my wife & I decided to build a new home, we started looking in Saratoga county. After looking what seemed like forever, my wife saw a “Glen Meadows” sign and she suggested we look there. When we drove in, we started getting excited and went in the open house. When we walked in the model home, we knew instantly that this was it and we decided our new home would be built by Abele Builders. I have to say, that was the best decisions we have ever made. I can not say enough about this family-owned and operated company. This family is a class act. I have been in the construction business for 48 years and believe the attention to detail and quality of workmanship is second to none. When I walked through the model home and saw the quality of work, there was no question. We set up a time to sign the contract and we were on our way. When it came time to pick out everything for the house, we went to Abele’s design center. What an exciting and absolute joy that was. Working with Phyllis and Moe Abele was like working with a part of our family. They were absolutely awesome, very helpful in our decisions and made us feel very comfortable. This whole experience has been so exciting. Thanks to the Abele family and staff. You are absolutely the best. “Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
