Kitchen Table and Mobile Office Nightmares
So you landed a great job with the flexibility for telecommuting hours, and you turned your kitchen table into your home office. And while the surface area is great to spread out, you have no files or drawers that allow you to store things so stackable bins and piles start taking up way too much space. The lack of organization is posing serious threats to your productivity and to meal time, not to mention you found a paper clip mixed in with last night’s dinner!
Or perhaps as the manager of your household you balance everyone’s schedules and appointments, pay your bills, keep track of home maintenance needs, and take care of everything else that busy parents juggle. If you’re not doing it all from the car, you’re using a tiny make-shift desk you made from two feet of counter top near your refrigerator. Your mountain of papers has food and water stains, and yesterday you sent your kid to school with an electric bill and mailed a permission slip to the electric company.
Enough already! Something’s got to change!
Dreamy Office Designs
You’ve got a space in your house that goes largely unused, and suddenly images of home offices start to infiltrate your dreams at night. So you bring in a designer and contractor, and within days you are staring at a beautiful piece of paper with a new office designed just for you. It’s customized to meet the surface and storage spaces you need, with just the right lighting for both daytime and late night hours. As a bonus, the flow of your work was considered and ergonomic solutions for proper body mechanics were incorporated into the design. You even pick out the style, color and finish of the cabinetry, shelving, and hardware accessories to bring a personal touch to your office project.
When the design comes to life you sit down in your new office for the first time, and you finally exhale. Working from home just got easier, and you whisper to yourself, “What took you so long?”
