Home Office Conversions: Create a New Work from Home Space

The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted the start of thousands of people working remotely, many of which have never done so before, which has created a need for work from home spaces. No matter how small or large the space you’re working with might be, your local contractors at Center Island Contracting can help create a home office or work area to fill that need.

We have great solutions to home office conversions or creating areas within the house to work remotely. Setting up a work from home space needs to be comfortable, free of distraction, calming and functional. Not only are our kids virtually learning at home, but we’re also trying to work from home. This is a new normal for us all, and we can help try to navigate it so that you are as comfortable as possible while doing it.

Start by identifying a vacant space within your home. Whether it’s a corner in the kitchen, your bedroom or basement, or half of the guest bedroom no one uses. Perhaps your need to work from home free of distractions is so substantial you’re willing to add on to your home. Whatever the case may be, finding a dedicated area of the home to work remotely is step one.

Try to avoid working from too comfortable of spaces, such as your bed or couch. Even in a small living space, a separate area for work and relaxation is essential. Set your workspace where there’s sufficient lighting, which can impact your productivity and diminish eyestrain. Natural light is the best, but a lamp or overhead lighting can work too. An ergonomic chair, a clear desk and some headphones are the icing on the cake.
