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.

As a recent new home buyer, I recommend Abele Builders for their quality workmanship and attractive development planning with home designs that include homes for the down-sizer. I experienced excellent co-operation from the Abele team who provided helpful Realty personnel and design center assistance making the whole process of my relocation a pleasant experience.
