The pandemic transformed work environments for people in a variety of industries across the globe. Working from home, otherwise known as remote work or just WFH, has become the norm for a large percentage of employees. And because this phenomenon is so common, home office renovations have climbed sharply in 2022. The trend is likely to continue this year, too. Maybe you’re remodeling a shed or garage to be a dedicated home office space, or it could be that you’re simply upgrading an existing space to make it more functional. Regardless, real estate experts everywhere are seeing home office setups become a real priority for people today. Keep these home office renovation ideas and trends in mind in 2023.
The stress of the last few years has weighed on everyone at some point or another. You can combat this in your home office designs by creating a space with peace and calm in mind. Wood tones, soft pastel colors, and natural greens are all considered one of the best home office setups. If you plan on keeping your office in a shared space, consider adding shelving, a French door, or a room divider to create separation. This helps keep work and home-life divided as much as possible.
Having a workspace with plenty of natural light is great for your energy bill – but it offers so much more than that. Daylight is important for bolstering creativity and helping with mental and physical health. So in that way it benefits your wellbeing as well as your productivity. In fact, a 2018 study showed that office environments with natural daylight reported an 84 percent drop in symptoms of eyestrain, headaches, and blurred vision symptoms. That’s why incorporating natural light is a crucial part of a modern home office where you can work better and feel better doing it.
