Have you been looking for the perfect way to transform your unfinished basement into a functional, stylish space? With home offices rising in popularity and the Work From Home push gaining momentum, more and more homeowners are choosing to make the most of their unused space and create a dedicated office area on their lower level.
Peak Improvements is proud to partner with homeowners all throughout the Edmonton Region to design the perfect home office that allows you to stay focused and be your own boss. If you’ve been considering developing a home office, below are 5 key details to keep in mind. Read on to learn more!
1. Why Choose the Basement
As we mentioned above, unfinished basements are a perfect space to create a home office. While some might be hesitant to choose a basement space because it can be darker and colder, with the right design in place, you’ll be amazed at how much your unfinished space can transform. Basements give you the chance to create a sizeable workspace without compromising the active space on the upper floor. If you have a larger household with multiple children that need plenty of space to roam, sequestering the basement for your own needs can be a great compromise.
Unfinished basements also give you the ability to design flawlessly around your desired function for your home office. Whether you need a large office space that allows you to host Zoom calls or a more dedicated work area for designing, drafting, and building, there are plenty of ways to design around function. Peak Improvements team of in-house experts partner closely with our clients to determine how to perfectly marry style and practicality, especially where spaces like home offices are concerned.
3. Add A Touch Of Personality
Think that basements are dull and boring? Think again! Home offices can be as vibrant as you are, even if they’re located on your lower level. From bold colours on the wall to custom cabinets, flooring, and everything in between, there’s no shortage of ways to design a space that is uniquely you!
4. Add Comfort
Just because you’re creating a more professional space doesn’t mean you have to forgo comfort; after all, this is your personal office! Considering adding plush carpeting to increase insulation and warmth in the area, including luxury lighting and fixtures, and partner with your designers to find other special touches that create a welcoming space you’ll be happy to work in.
One of the most important, and yet often neglected aspects of designing a home office is ensuring you have ample storage to work with. From custom cabinets to in-wall bookshelves and more, you can easily transform your storage into a statement piece that is sure to wow and delight.
