Check Out These Tips for an Effective Work-From-Home Office

For many, working from home has gone from a temporary solution to a full-blown lifestyle adjustment. So, it makes sense why so many people are now thinking about about revamping their WFH space. “We have definitely seen an increase in requests for home offices, even in vacation homes,” says Laura Hodges of Laura Hodges Studio. “We’re often asked to make these spaces ready for Zoom calls as well, which is a very specific and technology-driven set-up.” Gemma Parker of Gemma Parker Design has also had requests from clients for virtual-meeting-ready rooms. “We have noticed an influx of clients putting more emphasis on home offices. I think that because people are video conferencing so much, they are also more aware of what their spaces look like,” she adds.

And, it’s not just about the office. Kids are distance learning from home now as well and need a workspace of their own. Donna Mondi of Donna Mondi Interior Design shares, “With some families having kids e-learning and both parents working, one dedicated office is no longer enough," she says. "Once the initial quarantine period was past, many of our clients bought second homes or purchased larger primary homes to give everyone some breathing room."

Luckily, if you don’t have designated rooms or the means to buy a bigger home, designers agree that there are plenty of ways to get creative with whatever space you do have. You just need some key components, like natural light, a door, a desk, a lamp, and plants. Anne Carr of Anne Carr Design also suggests a speaker "so that you can listen to peaceful music." “Whether you’re carving out a temporary work-from-home space or designing a complete home office, the overarching design goal is to create an [environment] you actually want to work in,” advises Decorist designer, Sarah Ramirez of Found + Collected Design. “This means prioritizing design choices that emphasize what the [room] is actually for and to set a tone that will get you working.”
