Creating a cool office space can and should reflect a company’s culture,” says Samantha Zupan, a Glassdoor spokesperson. “It can be a sense of pride for employees and an attractive selling point to recruits. Depending on how you design the workplace, it can offer a host of benefits. For example, an area with video games gives employees a chance to decompress and not focus on work for a little while, or a meeting area that’s filled with color and interesting structures could help stir up employees’ creative juices.”


 




 

Home Office – Office style

Home Office - Office style, homes are not always equipped with office space. Sometimes we find ourselves retrofitting a corner in the kitchen or a spot in the hallway as a workspace. This solution is clever, but it may not give you the privacy or quiet you need to stay productive. If this scenario feels familiar to you, consider looking north for a new office: The attic may be just the spot.

Consider getting a pro’s opinion. If you’re about to transform a currently unused space, get the room properly assessed before taking action. The last thing you want to do is start a new project before ensuring that everything is safe and sound. “First and foremost, it's important to consult with a structural engineer to verify whether the attic floor joists were designed to support the new use of the space, or if they need to be reengineered for live loads,” says architect Charlie Barnett.

Embrace a sliver of space. Only have a chunk of usable space in your attic? Instead of deeming it useless, maximize it. You might be surprised at how little space is needed for a functional and comfortable office. Make sure you can move easily through the room, you can set it up according to your needs, and you have a plan for creating storage or shelving. With those things in mind, you should be good to go.

Plan for windows. The last thing you want in a room where you’ll be spending hours upon hours is the absence of ample light. Natural light in particular can have a direct impact on mood and motivation. “For a successful conversion of an attic into a home office, the room should allow for a well-proportioned window that can be integrated into the overall architecture of the house, either in the form of a dormer — if the roof and city codes allow for that — a gable window or a nice operable skylight,” says Barnett.

Comfortable area

Think bright with white. Continue to brighten by choosing white or a light neutral for the walls and furnishings. “Again, you’re spending great chunks of time in here,” says Barnett. “Transforming it into a nice and comfortable area will instantly make it more habitable.”

Consider built-ins. “Because attic spaces are typically just small rooms pinched between low walls and pitched ceilings, they can be challenging to furnish with commercially available off-the-shelf office cabinetry that is usually large and bulky,” says Barnett. “In these situations, custom cabinetry designed specifically for client needs offers the best results.”
