If you are running your business, you might be thinking about creating home office space. Whenever you are renovating, you can look for opportunities to expand, reuse, or add space that you can call your domain. Next time you are planning a home improvement, you can use the below tips to create a modern, light, and comfortable study where you can focus on your goals.
Under the Stairs Offices
If all you need is a desk and a light for your laptop, you can use the space under the stairs to have a small office you can hide in. You can either go for the traditional design and simply put a desk and office chair in the space, or use a professional home design service to create built in shelves and furniture. You will, of course, need to get the electricity sorted, and good lighting. If you are looking for more privacy, get a door to your small office under the stairs.
If you have a garden room that you no longer use, you can get it insulated, and work from there occasionally. You have to engage with a qualified electrician to get your cables sorted, and a renovation company that will ensure that all fire safety regulations are followed, and your heating is safe to use in the winter.

Whether you have a small wooden garden room or an orangery, you can turn it into a great office space in a few weeks.
If you haven’t had your loft space converted yet, it might be time to create an office separate from your living space. You might need a planning permission, but you will benefit from the home improvement in many ways. You will not have to share the space or floor with other family members, and can work in the middle of the night without disturbing anyone.
Half Your Laundry Room
If you are short of space, and don’t want to build an extension in your house, you can make your laundry room smaller, and set up an office next to it. All you will need for this project is some plasterboard and creativity. Chances are you will already have electricity in the space, and you can hide away from other people working for long hours undisturbed, if you need to. Even if you think that your laundry room is a dull place, you can jazz it up by adding some custom features.
If you don’t use your garage (most people don’t anymore), you can turn it into a workspace. You will need some creativity, and portable heating facilities, so you can make the most out of this space. If you don’t have windows, you might need to get some to allow light and fresh air to enter.
If you are short of office space, or occasionally work from home, you might be looking for unused or underutilized spaces in your house to turn into office.
