“This whole thing started out as a kitchen-table business,” Glenda said. Glenda designs and sells customized wedding scrapbooks, uniting her graphic design expertise with her love of life’s big celebrations. The business quickly outgrew Glenda’s kitchen. “My husband got tired of eating his dinner in front of the TV!” she laughed. Adding a home office was the answer.
There are many ways you can add a home office to your Northborough home. One option is to repurpose an existing room to serve as your home office. “If we had a guest bedroom in this place, that’s what I would have done,” Glenda explained. “But we didn’t have a guest bedroom to convert.”
A room addition is another way to add a home office in Northborough. Your Northborough building contractor can build an addition to include your home office. Attached garages are another popular option, particularly if your home business involves a lot of packaging and shipping of parcels.
If you have a small lot, or don’t want to enlarge the footprint of your home, consider a second-story addition. Building up rather than out can provide the extra space your home business needs.
Still another option for adding a home office to your Northborough home is to finish the basement. “That’s what we did,” Glenda said. “We had the space just sitting there, not even being used.” Initially, Glenda was hesitant about moving her business into the basement because she was afraid it would be too dark. Your Northborough building contractor knows how to maximize the amount of natural light that makes it into the basement. Combining this knowledge with a smart lighting strategy can result in a pleasant, bright living space.
“I just love having the home office,” Glenda said. “I feel like I’m far more productive and organized this way. My husband and kids don’t have to worry about interrupting me every time they want to make a sandwich!” If you’re interested in learning how adding a home office can benefit you, call your Northborough building contractor today!
