Home office designs have become a common request from our clients when creating their dream homes. The need for a designated workspace at home has become one of the most important residential components, no longer a luxury but more of a necessity in today’s work-life landscape. Whether you’re talking about converting an entire room, or just part of it, into an inspiring and functional office space, creating a space that fits the clients’ lifestyle is key.
The truth is, home offices are trending and becoming more and more common. This is happening for so many reasons, including flexible working trends, self-employment, or even bringing work home after hours. In order to create a space that motivates you and helps you stay focused , the design and environment of this space plays an important role.
If you work from your home full-time, or you alternate between working at home and at an office, chances are you’ll need some home design inspiration to set up your own workspace. We’ve prepared some design inspiration for you from homes completed by our Miami designers, plus we’re sharing some home office design trends.
