5 Must-Have Features for a Custom Home Office

When building your luxury home, you will have a blank slate to set up your custom home office as you wish. This is your opportunity to have all your must-haves. The top 6 must-have features when setting up your custom home office in Sarasota, FL are below. 

1. Built-in Bookshelves

Bookshelves are a necessity for any custom home office. They are perfect for keeping you organized and focused on work as well as a lovely way to decorate a room to give it a luxurious and sophisticated styling. 

Whether you are keeping your favorite reads or industry guidebooks, having them displayed neatly on built-in bookshelves will provide a clutter-free work space and make a room look good, too.


2. The perfect lighting setup

A good home office in Florida can have access to many forms of light to fit your mood. From warm sunset or sunrise tones through large, gorgeous windows to more intimate task lighting to brighten your desk in the late hours of the night. No matter the time of day or occasion, be sure you have the lighting you need to do your work and enjoy everything that comes with working from home in your own custom home office.

3. Plenty of Electrical Outlets

In today's always-connected world, having plenty of electrical outlets for charging and the use of all our devices is essential. 

This is especially true for a custom home office. You will want to be sure to have enough outlets for all your home office equipment, including your personal voice assistant device. 

4. Customized Storage Cabinets

Having a place to neatly tuck your files and office supplies away is necessary for any home office. Since you will not want these items displayed on open shelving, custom storage cabinets are a brilliant solution for your custom home office. 

Custom-designing your storage cabinets will allow them to fit into any challenging spaces such as low ceilings or angled walls. Customized cabinets fit your unique needs and efficiently complete a custom home office.

5. Comfortable Chair

To top off the setup of any home office, you will want to have a comfortable chair. Whether you’re working in your home office full-time, part-time, or just to take care of the monthly finances, you’ll be sitting a lot and a good chair is a fine investment. 

You may also consider adding a sitting area for breaks such as a reading nook built into a window.
