The Perfect Home Office Starts at The Finishing Store

The Finishing Store & Millworks, the local, family-owned solution to your home office needs. Work from home in an office space that works for you.

If this year has found you working from home for the first time, you are not alone. 2020 has brought about the rise of the home office, and it looks like it’s here to stay. More and more people are finding their morning commute shortened to a 15-second walk from the bedroom to their laptop with no sign of going back to the office.

Having a separate space in your home specifically for work can transform productivity and help cultivate a healthy work-life balance. So if you’re tired of working in the middle of your living room chaos or balanced on the corner of a shared dining room table, read on.

The biggest challenge folks are facing when trying to put in a home office is finding the space. Many are forced to reconsider the function and design of their home. The good news is that there is no shortage of solutions to this conundrum – getting creative with your space is half the fun.

Spare bedrooms, basements, and garages can all be converted into home offices. Where this isn’t possible, partitioning off part of a room is always an option. When brainstorming where to create your home office keep in mind what is important to you for your workspace, some things to consider are:
lighting, privacy, peace and quiet, easy access, and having enough space.
