Creating a loft conversion home office
Designing the perfect home office means understanding the key principles that create a good home office space. This can include:
- a quiet, relaxing space
- no distractions
- natural light
A quiet, relaxing space
To make sure that your loft conversion really delivers as a home office, it has to be a quiet and calm room. Perfect for getting on with your work. If you live in a noisy household, or have noisy neighbours, you might want to think about soundproofing your loft conversion. In fact, you can even use plasterboard sheets, with built in soundproofing. So you can soundproof and plaster your new room at the same time.
Keeping your loft space free from distractions will come down to your own decorating tastes. Try and keep to a neutral colour scheme, and avoid bold posters or bright images that might distract you.
You’ll also need to make sure your WiFi signal can reach your loft conversion, so you can get on with your work without losing internet connection, and being interrupted. A simple WiFi booster should be enough to achieve this.
Natural light has been proven to increase positivity and productivity. So during the planning and design phase of your new loft conversion, consider the window options carefully. Large windows can really help flood the room with natural light. And if all you can see is the sky, the chances are, the view won’t disturb you. Though you could take up stargazing in the evening!
