Five Popular Home Office Design Trends for 2021

In the last few years, working from home has gone from an alternative option to a mainstream trend. If you’re in the market for a new house and you plan to have a home office, consider a property that can be built to meet your exact work-from-home needs. 

Your residential workspace should be designed for maximum comfort and functionality based on your personal preferences. By working with your builder in the initial phases of construction, you can plan the perfect home office. The top trends in this movement involve distinct approaches to light, privacy and other important design elements. 

Light it Up Right

If you’re a morning person, consider flooding your workspace with natural light. You can do this by choosing a room with east and south-facing windows. New construction homes in St. Louis are bathed in sunlight beginning anywhere from 5:30 to 7:15 AM, depending on the time of year. If you plan your home office accordingly, you can enjoy the productivity inspired by getting up with the sun. 

Reduce the Noise

Keeping your work/life balance in check is another popular home office trend of 2021. If you live in a busy household, it is important to plan ahead so that distractions will be decreased or eliminated completely. By working with a respected builder such as the Rolwes Company, you can consider customizing your workspace with noise-reducing carpet, triple-pane windows and acoustic panels on the walls and ceiling. 

Wire it Well

If your profession requires that you are online all day and that you power up printers, computers and other electronic equipment, you can request that your builder supply sufficient wiring to your home office. This can include additional electrical outlets, special outlets for cable, telephone jacks for internet and speaker wiring for surround-sound conference calling. Your residential workspace can be a state-of-the-art, high-tech facility nestled in the comfort of your home.

Color it Forward

Your future home office should reflect your personality, so if bright, bubbly visuals are important, you can map out a color scheme with your builder ahead of time. The shades of paint you choose can help create a dynamic workspace so that it is inspired by a vibrant scheme of tones and hues. If you lean more towards the need for calmness and concentration, you can choose warmer, earthy shades of brown and grey — including finishing trim of wood tones and granite accents. 

Customize the Look

If you are going to be on Zoom calls all day, you might consider a dynamic light fixture scheme and wall backdrop that helps your coworkers see you clearly while offering an intriguing background. Adjustable track panels above your desk area and built-in bookshelves, pre-designed with your builder, will provide a professional, sophisticated way to present yourself every day.

"My family has been living in an apartment in the area for the past five years. When we were ready to buy a home, we picked Rolwes Company because of their reputation. Even our landlord recommended Rolwes, which made us feel comfortable. This is our first home, so my priority was to stay within my budget. They treated us like family, not like a business."
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
