Are you in need of a work space?

This years’ events have changed the way houses are being build, with more people working from home permanently.

Working from home requires somewhere to be organised, somewhere for peace and quiet and for getting the job done – it  requires a home office.

In previous years, home offices were not really something that people took into consideration when building a new home.

However, in 2020 the enquiries for offices and study nooks, as well as children’s retreats have grown significantly.

COVID-19 version 2.0 has certainly opened up the conversation with customers in designing a specific home office or study.

People have been getting quite nifty with what little space they have, so even a wardrobe could be turned into a work space.

Some of the child’s retreats could also be used as a home office for people that have older kids, teenagers or no kids at home.

What is essential in a home office?

When building your new dream home, Stroud Homes can customise any design plan to include a home office or study nook.

Being successful in your new home office requires creating a space that promotes efficiency in a non-traditional work environment.

One of the most popular features to include is a build in bench/desk to maximise what’s often a quite small place.

Storage is always important – plenty of shelves and cupboards to store folders and materials on. Everyone wants to avoid a cluttered space!

It’s also important to include natural light, so windows and and aircon unit for comfort is worth to think about.

Natural light can reduce headaches and eyestrain, allowing you to be more productive on a day-to-day basis and healthier in the long term.
