Home office remodeling is a great way to give yourself additional workspace in a quiet, practical area. An office remodel in your house can allow you to have privacy as you conduct your work, engage in your hobbies, pay the bills, or take care of other desk work. New homeowners or buyers to be are constantly on the lookout for houses with a dedicated office. Whether it is an addition, a large converted closet, or another room that is remodeled to make the perfect office for you, we’re here to help. Aura Home Remodeling can help you plan, design, budget, and complete your dream workspace and office remodeling project.
There are many things to consider when it comes to remodeling a room to convert it to an office. You need to make sure that there is enough shelving or storage space for files, a spacious desk so you can have an efficient working area, proper networking for printers and internet, as well as a great aesthetic. Certain colors for office wall paint, flooring, and the ceiling are great for productivity. You want to make sure that your office is not too dark, but perhaps not too bright either. We can help you come up with the perfect color palette for your home office remodel.
Home office remodeling can be done affordably by limiting the amount of major changes, such as with the floorplan. While it can be more pricey to bump out walls, build new doorways, or construct a whole new addition, a room conversion to office is a great way to keep the costs low. In fact, you may end up spending more money on new furniture and fixtures than with the core remodeling work.
An office floor can be designed so many different ways, but maybe you have a preference… Wood flooring, laminate, or carpeting are the most popular options for remodeled offices in Houston homes. However, anything can be installed if it will make you happy! You should focus on how you will use the space and weigh the pros and cons. A carpet for example can get worn down over time, especially underneath your desk and chair area. Similarly, a wooden floor can end up scratched or have some wear and tear from your chair, especially if it’s a rolling office seat. Things like this are worth considering so you can choose the best design to fit your needs and ensure your remodel lasts for a long time.
Windows are a great way to brighten up an office. Many workers feel more productive when it’s not so dark and natural sunlight is fantastic at making a home study or workspace seem less like a cave and more like an office. Of course, it’s all personal preference. If you enjoy the dark, perhaps you would want to keep the windows as they are or have none at all. New curtains or shades could be a great way to let the space be used as you want, especially if you lack a way to block the sunlight currently or simply need an upgrade. Another thing worth mentioning is that curtain placement can actually significantly alter the way a room feels. For example, curtains that are just a foot or two higher on the wall than another will help a room feel more spacious because it gives off the illusion that the ceiling is farther up than it actually is. Design methods like this, along with decluttering and practical placements of fixtures or furniture, are great ways to enjoy the best home office remodeling work.
