Updating your home office improves focus and increases productivity

Anyone doing business ITP or OTP (aka inside or outside the I-285 perimeter of Atlanta) knows the value of working from a home office – even if it’s only a few days a week. Your time is better spent, your carbon footprint is minimized and your stress is greatly reduced without the commute traffic.

For many of us, a “home office” is no longer working at the kitchen or dining room table. A recently emptied bedroom or rarely used guest room has become that sacred space to call your own. But have you really made it your own? Does it offer you the organization and inspiration to be most productive? Does it reflect your personal style? Updating an existing home office or converting a bedroom into one is a relatively low-cost home remodeling project that offers significant focus and productivity benefits.

With the help of a professional residential contractor, your home office can be transformed with customized organization, technology hubs and modernized surroundings to improve your ability to focus and increase your productivity. Here are some great ways to add your personal touches while giving your home office better functionality:

  • New flooring
  • Fresh wall paint
  • Optimized lighting
  • Custom cabinetry and built-in shelves
  • Soundproofing

You’ll especially want your office surroundings to be clutter-free and organized if you have in-office client meetings or collaborators join you in-person to work on projects. If you have virtual meetings on a regular basis, you’ll definitely want to be aware of the office lighting, sounds and what’s behind you that’s viewable on screen!

A distraction free zone is also very desirable. Some of you may need a flat-screen television for quick news and investment updates during the day or to have large digital displays. A custom-built cabinet to quickly and easily hide your flat screen television when it’s NOT needed will help keep it out of sight and out of mind. Speaking of distractions, soundproofing can help minimize the noise from the rest of the house while keeping your conference calls, in-person meetings and virtual collaborations private.
