With most of the USA working at home these days, our architectural firm in Lake Tahoe, NV has received quite a few calls about our remodeling services in Incline Village, Truckee, and throughout the Lake. What is enjoyable for us, is the opportunity to seize the moment to help our clients live a more well-balanced life – at home.
As this is a hot topic, we are taking this time to give you some tips on how to remodel a room or unused space in your home into a comfortable environment in which to continue your career.
Take an inventory of your home’s ‘space’. Do you have a room that is used just for clutter-keeping? What about a spot just off the porch? Maybe you have become empty-nesters and have a room or two that would be ideal for your new office?
Get Professional Advice. Once you have established the options, give us a call at Borelli Architecture. We are happy to offer a complimentary visit to discuss the ideal use, and remodeling, of your home to accommodate your new world. And, as a bonus, we offer interior design services as well through Kelly Borelli Interiors.
Establish The Best Option. Working as a team, we will review the options with you and provide our advice according to the preferred room’s location. In many instances, our clients need space for not just one office, yet two or more. Take a look at the photo above; it’s a prime example of how adding a wall, or removing a few walls, can achieve many objectives.
Assess the structural design. Sometimes what seems to be the best option is not the best at all. Within the decision-making process, we will review the room’s structure, HVAC and electrical capabilities, window opportunities (to enjoy that fresh Sierra air), and safe egress and access.
Review Other Opportunities. In addition to remodeling a room for an office, what about taking the opportunity to add additional features that you have always wanted in your home. How about a library or large shelving to display some of your favorite memories or awards? Maybe it would be nice to have a kitchenette with room for a coffee pot, mini-fridge, or sink? Some of our clients have also requested our office remodel design to include space for a Murphy bed – to accommodate guests.
Ready. Set. Go. Once you have confirmed your desires, you can move forward with confidence to confirm the costs, timeline, and estimated “Grand Opening” of your new office!
Please never hesitate to give us a call to discuss your ideas for remodeling your home. We’d be happy to help design a new and inspirational setting for your new office space in your home.
