As we get ready for the final stretch of 2020, more companies are continuing to embrace the concept of remote work. For employees who find themselves working from home, adjusting to remote employment can present a new set of challenges. One of the most common challenges is finding an ideal spot to work in that’s conducive to focus and results.

And it’s not just adults who are looking for ways to improve their remote work environment. For millions of kids who have transitioned to distance learning this year, finding the right space to complete schoolwork is essential. At The Construction Group in Woodbury, we can help create an ideal space for working from home. Check out these ideas for a home office addition or renovation and then give us a call.

The Importance of a Home Office

If you talk to many folks who have spent time working from home, you’re likely to hear some of the same struggles across the board. When you work in the same place you live and sleep, it can be difficult to transition both physically and mentally.

You may have difficulty staying on task when surrounded by distractions. On the other hand, you may find yourself having trouble turning off the urge to work past your normal workday. Having a clearly defined workspace can be the key to finding a balance between your job and your personal life when working from home.

Try one or more of these ideas for improving your workday productivity and achieving a work-life balance:

1.    Transform an unused room.

For parents pulling double duty working from home and overseeing their children’s distance learning, the need for a separate workspace is a must. If you’ve got a basement or large attic, we can help you transform it into a home office that offers the privacy and workday comfort you need to be productive. A garage or other unused bedroom is also a viable option.

2.    Use built-ins to create storage.

To make your home office or school workspace more useful, use built-in cabinets and shelving to create a space for everything. We can even add a built-in desk or a workspace alcove to make better use of your space. 

3.    Get space where you can.

If you don’t have a spare room to transform into a workspace or you’re looking for something less dramatic, consider building a work alcove into an existing space. We can help create a space that’s visually separate from your kitchen, living room, or bedroom while remaining functional at the same time.
