Having a home office can provide a working homeowner more privacy and convenience than working in public spaces such as cafes or libraries. Has your employer recently transitioned to remote work? Having an office in your home can provide you with the perfect amount of comfort and privacy. A room for your office can allow you to separate your work life from your personal life, making it easier to focus on tasks while still being close to the household. Additionally, having an office can be advantageous for tax purposes as some expenses related to that room may be deductible. It adds value to the property and is attractive to potential buyers if they ever decide to resell.
An added bonus: Having an extra room could potentially increase the resale value should you ever choose to move.
Some trends we’re seeing in home offices for the coming year:
1. Form and function
Throughout 2022, homeowners were getting creative with home office design, incorporating statement wallpapers, appealing office furniture, and trendy decor accessories. 2023 promises a continuation of these trends. A well-designed home office should be comfortable, inviting, and organized so that working from home can be enjoyable as well as productive. It should also provide adequate storage for supplies, equipment, documents, books and other materials needed for the job. Beauty adds a sense of pleasure to any space while functional amenities ensure everything has its place so your workday can flow without clutter or distractions.
2. Natural lighting
Natural light is becoming increasingly important when it comes to a quality home office because it helps create a sense of calmness and increase productivity. Skylights and windows provide illumination during working hours while conserving energy and helping you save on your utility bills.
3. Flexible spaces
Having an adaptable workspace is an attractive option for getting the most out of your floorplan. Homeowners are using flexible layouts with moveable walls and partitions, allowing a customizable setup based on needs throughout the day.
