Many people with home offices are looking for ways to improve their at-home experience. Whether that means finding the right office chair or designing an entire office around your needs, there are plenty of ways to get your home office space where you want it to be. If you can implement custom home features into your new home that revolve around working from home, you may find the best results. If you know you will be working out of your home office frequently, then these custom home features are an investment worth making.
Bring in Natural Light
Some sunlight pouring into your workspace can help you stay productive, focused, and fully awake. Everyone knows that exposure to natural sunlight can do wonders for the human mood and body. It’s also simple as far as custom features go. You need to think about the placement of your house and where the room you plan on working from will be. You want to avoid an intense glare on your work computer, but you also want to let in enough sunlight for better work days ahead.
Space for ALL of the Outlets
You can never have enough outlets in your home office. This thought should go beyond any dedicated working spaces as well. Imagine you’re having a slow day and want to bring your work setup into the kitchen, living room, den, guest room, or other space. Having all of the necessary outlets—and keeping them accessible so you don’t have to fiddle with cords while you’re supposed to be working—is a big step toward having a functional living space.
You’re going to want a nice and quiet space so you can focus on work. Soundproofing isn’t an easy task, and many people falsely believe it’s something you can quickly add after construction. Good soundproofing is a custom home feature that should be added when the home is being built. Soundproof any spots you’re concerned about in particular so you can keep pet and kid sounds out while you’re in meetings.
If you are considering working from home more, it is crucial to carefully consider the ventilation system in your home. Inadequate air quality has been associated with numerous health issues, such as specific cancers and respiratory diseases. Given the extended duration individuals spend indoors while working remotely, we strongly suggest contemplating installing a mechanical ventilation system. These systems effectively expel contaminated indoor air and introduce fresh air from the outside, ensuring a healthier living environment.
