If you’ve started to work remotely from home or are looking into running a small business, among the most valuable additions to any home is a home office.
Our home office remodel company can effectively remodel any room within your home into an office. We can make your new space comfortable and beautiful, which should boost your productivity while you work from home.
While the flooring in your home office can be practically anything, the most common materials for home offices include carpet, tile, wood, laminate, and vinyl. You'll likely want a flooring material that matches well with your office furniture.
We can help you choose and install your preferred flooring material. Updating your flooring can make your home office more comfortable and welcoming.
Home office lighting should be simple and straightforward. The main purpose of this lighting is to make you more productive and comfortable while working.
Another ideal source of light for a home office is natural lighting, which means that you should consider adding skylights or windows to the room.
Our team can provide you with recommendations and install the lighting fixtures of your choice.
Almost nothing is more important than the storage you place in your home office. Whether you work from home or are starting a new business, you'll likely have lots of documents and paperwork that you'll need to keep track of.
To that end, storage is essential. There are a wide range of cabinets and organizers that fit perfectly into any home office. We can assist you in selecting and installing the right storage solutions for your home.
Along with storage, it's important that your home office is outfitted with shelving that you can use to store any item that doesn't fit well into your desk.
While freestanding shelving units are more affordable, built-in and wall-mounted shelves allow you to make good use of your space while also providing the room with a more stylish and professional appearance. If you select built-in shelves, our team can install this shelving without damaging your walls or painting.
The average costs for a home office remodel are around $10,000-$20,000. The scope of the project will determine what your total costs are. Some of the factors that dictate project costs include:

If you want your home office to be decked out with all of the luxurious features and amenities that the best office would have, there are a number of features you should consider.
Adding floor-to-ceiling windows to your home office provides you with more natural light.
If you want your home office to double as a bedroom, consider transitional features like a Murphy bed.
Adding soundproofing to your home office allows you to make calls and hold meetings without ambient sounds.
These walls are perfect when you need to brainstorm and hold virtual business meetings.
Consider adding technology like smart speakers, an ultra-wide monitor, a heated desk chair, and a surge protector.
No luxury home office is complete without a coffee/tea station that's only feet away from your office desk.

What are the requirements to claim a home office deduction?
If you complete a home office renovation, you can claim a home office deduction on your taxes as long as the room is exclusively used as a home office and is your principal place of business.
Can I add more electrical sockets to my home office?
The easiest way to add electrical sockets to your home office is by converting a single socket into a double socket.
