Still working from home?

With the current pandemic, people have spent more time in their homes over the past two years than ever before. This has led to new trends, needs and wants in home designs, inclusions and functionalities.

Working, studying and schooling from home is becoming an increasingly more popular option. For some, it’s even a preferred method for the long-term.

At Stroud Homes, our home designs can cater for this and include dedicated areas for you to reside in to complete your work, while still being able to separate downtime from work or school.


The study nook

Many of our existing plans have provisions for a study nook; a space in which the kids can complete schoolwork while you prepare dinner, assisting them or monitoring their studies.

We also have specific study rooms or a separate office space, this is more for those that work from home, run a business from home or older children who are studying in their final years at school or going to university.

It allows you to have a room where you can go and get away from the busy house life and undertake your work peacefully.


We can customise

A Study nook, study room or office doesn’t need to be a plain boring room or that hidden area anymore.

With Stroud Homes’ own in-house interior designer we can offer ideas on how to give these areas a ‘WOW factor’ during our consult in the selection studio.

It could be as simple as a barn door on a study nook to hide the area away when not in use or guests are around.

We can customise desk, shelving, or storage ideas to work in with the space and really make the room feel inviting and a fun space to work in.
