There is a trend of home offices becoming more popular in the past year. With the rise of remote work and office closures, having a dedicated work area, whether it's a separate room or just a space in a private corner of your house, has become essential for many. With these shifts in how we work, it's important to find ways that suit your needs when it comes to crafting an environment conducive to productivity.
Still occupying half of your dining table with your laptop and documents scattered all over, leaving the other half for meals? Or are you bouncing from one area to another, welcoming any form of privacy for your zoom meetings? Maybe it's time to carve out an area or dedicate a room for a home office. No matter the size of the space or if it's a separate room, installing custom cabinets will make the space more organized and professional allowing for greater concentration and productivity. Below are examples of different custom made home office ideas and the cost to build and install each one.
Custom home office with full extension filling drawers and maple-veneered countertop stained to a walnut colour. Floating display shelves provides additional counter space with built in lights: $7000 - $8000
Custom home office and display units painted MDF in a custom colour: $10,000 - $11,000
Custom library and work station in thermo-laminated MDF: $6,000 - $6500
Custom MDF library painted in a custom colour with full extension filing drawers, fully adjustable shelves and 4” crown molding: $11,500 - $12,500
Sometimes just a bookshelf or a wall unit with shelves and cabinets to store important documents and reference books is all you need. Opting for a custom built unit trumps ready-made ones because the configuration can be created according to your needs. And because it is made to measure, it can fit into any space you want.
Custom MDF wall unit painted in CC40 cloud white featuring glass shelves with French glass doors and custom fire place mantle: $8500 - $9500

The jury is still out as to whether remote work will continue or will we see a hybrid model come into fruition with home and workplace time split equally. Regardless of whichever way this goes, one factor is certain; having a separate office area set up at home is beneficial in many levels. Not only do you get the privacy to focus on your work when working from home, you are also increasing your property value especially when you utilize the flexibility of custom cabinetry to create your dedicated work area.
