California Closets Charlottesville - How to Create a Home Office You Can’t Wait to Come Back To

Let’s face it: these days you need a home office. With more employees working from home, it’s crucial that you have something better than your kitchen table or cluttered back office. Here’s how to create a home office you’ll want to spend a lot of time in, and one that keeps your productive all day long for residents living in Charlottesville, Williamsburg, Ashland or Goochland.

Set Your Ambiance

The first step in creating a successful home office is asking yourself how you work best. Are you a creative collaborator who works well in an open floor plan? Or are you someone who needs peace and quiet? Home offices come in many different shapes, sizes and styles. Best of all – you can completely customize your office to your needs.

Custom Cabinets and Storage Accessories

Next come the office accessories to help you get organized. These include:

  • Custom-designed bookshelves store large or small collections.
  • Counter surface provides a workspace for collaboration.
  • Lower desk cabinets conceal home office supplies and technology, corralling cord clutter.
  • Upper storage cabinets allow for easy access to supplies.
  • A keyboard tray or sliding drawer can be tucked away when not in use.
  • Floating shelves display collectibles.

Create a Multipurpose Room

If you don’t quite have the space for a home office, make it a multipurpose room. Whether a guest room or bedroom, a Murphy bed solution is ideal so you have a bed to sleep in at night and an office to work in during the day. The Murphy bed is a brilliant, simple solution where the bed folds up and into the wall when not in use. The easy pull-down mechanism provides a comfortable bed at night, equipped with custom cabinetry such as an end table, desk or nightstand, all designed to match the aesthetic of your home. A side-tilt wall bed option is available for more of a space-saving solution, or a traditional wall bed is available for room on both sides of the bed.

The designers from California Closets work on these types of projects all the time, and will make the transition from day to night as seamless and beautiful as possible.
