It’s no surprise that the home remodeling industry has been forever impacted by the effects of the 2020 pandemic. Whether you are a homeowner who has experienced the monetary implications of rising prices, or a professional who has endured product delays, we have all been impacted in one way or another. Today’s 2023 design trends are a reflection of these impacts as many homeowners are looking to upgrade or add a home office to their living space. According to The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, adding a home office and in some cases, having two home offices can increase the salability of a home. Since the onset of the pandemic, many employers have offered flexible work-from-home schedules which speaks to the demand of incorporating multiple home offices.
There are a few key factors to consider when incorporating a home office such as choosing a location that is away from distractions, investing in quality workspace furniture, and keeping the space clear and organized. As HGTV describes it, “comfortable functionality is the name of the game”. In situations where space is limited, homeowners have looked to convert sheds and garages into offices. Maximizing usable workspace at home to create a clear and defined space that separates work from relaxation is essential when considering a home office.
