6 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. Skylight

What a better way to brighten your workspace than letting in the Florida sunshine? Skylights are a great option for keeping your mood improved while working from home. 

Good lighting is essential in your office space and adding natural lighting has some health benefits as well as being an easy source of soft light to help you work, read, or study.


2. 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.


3. Task Lighting

There is no such thing as too much light in a custom home office. When setting up your custom home office, an overhead light is a good starting point. But you will also want to include task lighting via wall sconces or lamps. 

Knowing the type of task lighting you will use is helpful when designing your custom home office. Wall sconces are planned for in the building phase, and well-placed wall sconces will make the perfect addition to a custom home office. It is also important to consider where you will place lamps and take that into account when setting up a home office in Sarasota. 


4. 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. 


5. 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.


6. 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.
