We pride ourselves on creating unique and functional office environments for our clients. The amount of space with which to work with is important, but also where that space is located is equally important.

Home offices continue to emerge as an effective way to run a business (whether as a place to conduct work when away from another office, or as the main headquarters itself), and ensuring where and how the office is set up is crucial for optimized functionality. Here are some considerations to make when developing an office space.

“Location is key

Home offices come in many different shapes and sizes. It can be in a separate room, a quiet corner or even in your kitchen. The key to selecting the right place for your home office, is to think about where and when you do your work. If you are a busy mom, a kitchen desk area may be the ideal place for your central command post. However, if you’re a professional, you’ll want to select a space that’s away from the daily flow and distractions of your household.

A Place to Meet

Will you have clients or customers visit during the day? If you have room to have a small meeting area, that is ideal. If not, plan for some additional seating in your home office design to allow for sit-down meetings. This can be as simple as 1-2 comfortable chairs, which are easy to pull up to your desk.

Allow enough space

Make sure you allow enough space to work comfortably. Ask yourself if you will be able to move easily from side to side, stand up and sit back from your desk. While this may seem like a no brainer, it’s easy to underestimate how much space you need. To avoid this, use the same rule of thumb professional designers use to lay out a workstation – allow at least 60″ (150cm) in width and 84″ (210cm) in depth.” (source: roomsketcher.com)
