How to design the perfect home office

Creating a building extension for your home office can be an easier option than constructing a stand-alone garden office, with heat and power supplies already close by, but there are many points worth discussing with your architect.

Statistics show that workplace productivity is increased when we’re afforded views of nature, so why should a home office be any different? A home office extension to the rear of your property with garden views can create a peaceful environment where you can work effectively.

Natural light and fresh air are also ideal working conditions, so consider the windows you choose. Skylights are perfect for inviting in light, while floor-to-ceiling windows can also add a feeling of space to smaller extensions. In home extensions with limited space, choose underfloor heating over bulky radiators.

Those planning house extensions in Nantwich and other Cheshire towns can select from single or two floor options. When extra space is required for home working, a two-storey extension is worth considering.

Finding the ideal place to work in a busy household can be challenging, and a two-storey extension can allow you to concentrate away from your home’s hub without disruption. To answer further issues with acoustics, soundproof your sanctuary with added insulation.

Two floor extensions give you double the space for less than twice the price. Regardless of how tall your extension is it will always require a roof, so in effect the extra costs are only for floor joists and extending the walls. This additional space created can also increase the value of your property, offering you a return on your investment.
