With thousands of us still WFH, having a dedicated home office is top of most peoples’ wish list. Turning your basement into a complete office solution gives you a workspace right where you need it.
There’s no wonder that most basement design options prioritise office space over other types of living space. A basement office is a convenient way to minimise all the distractions of working from home and your commute is much quicker and easier too!
Here are the top five advantages of turning your basement into a home office.
1. Maximise your space
Setting up a home office in your living room or on the kitchen table takes valuable space away from your day to day living. Using your basement conversion to deliver a dedicated home office gives you extra space where you need it, unlike a loft conversion. And you can always squeeze in a home gym or media room to complement your office space.
2. Better storage options
We all know how quickly an impromptu desk can get cluttered, with papers overflowing into your living space. Unless you have a spare room to use as an office, it’s not long before you’re losing track of where that important document is. Designing your basement around a home office means you can build in all the storage you could possibly need, taking full advantage of your square footage and keeping your office tidy.
3. Do away with distractions
One of the big difficulties when working from home is finding the time and space to get work done without the distractions that crop up throughout the day. If you share your living space, it can be difficult to be productive and concentrating on your work can be challenging. By separating your home office from your living space, you physically create a much-needed boundary between work and family life, giving you the structure to work productively.
Unlimited basement design options
Whether you’re converting an unused basement space or having a basement constructed from scratch, you’ll have unlimited freedom to create the perfect workspace. Because you’re not constrained by having to fit in with the decor in the rest of the house, you can create something completely unique with a setup and interior decor that reflects your personality or your business.
5. You’ll add value
Adding a home office is about more than just adding square footage to your home. With hybrid working becoming the norm for most companies, having a dedicated workspace in your home makes your property much more attractive if and when you decide to sell. By transforming an unused space into a home office, you’ll instantly add value. Just make sure your basement design is flexible enough to accommodate a range of uses so your home attracts a wide range of buyers.
