The home office is one of my favorite rooms to research and think about in the home. The reason for this is I work from home and spend a great deal of time in my home office and therefore it’s important that I’m comfortable and that the space is highly functional.
Fortunately new homes built these days often include a den or home office. However the home office is a fairly new phenomenon and unfortunately older homes do not have a dedicated home office space. The result is people end up placing their home computer system in a less than desirable location in the home such as a side kitchen credenza OR and the master bedroom.
With the growth in popularity of the home office, home office design is a growing industry and is something many homeowners are willing to invest time and money into.
One prolific and talented home office design company is Closet Factory.
Closet Factory has created some of my favorite custom home office designs that I’ve seen.
Below you can browse our gallery featuring 26 custom home office designs by Closet Factory. I think you’ll agree that their work is nothing short of spectacular.
Fortunately for you and me they have 45 locations throughout the United States so if you like what you see chances are you’ll be able to at least talk to them and perhaps engage them to create your own custom home office.
When planning your home office you should consider the following:
- Single vs. double sided desk;
- Shelving and/or drawers (so many design and functional elements to consider);
- Seating for guests;
- Lounge area?
- Display case?
- Beverage/wine station?
- Lighting: Lighting is so important for work environments;
- Desk placement in relation to windows (minimize glare yet maximize enjoyment of natural light);
- Style: Modern, contemporary, traditional, minimalist, Scandinavian, etc.
- Tone: serious, whimsical, light, dramatic, etc.
- Built-in vs. Freestanding elements (desk, shelving, etc.);
- Single or multiple workstations;
- Outlets and cord control; and
- Work station design (L-shaped, traditional, U-shaped, etc.).
If you’re prepared to spend a great deal on your home office design, it may be best to leave it to the professionals.
