cleaning garage home office Sarasota

Are you transitioning to a position where you can work remotely? Or are you getting ready to start your own business? Whatever the case may be, you might be looking at your home and trying to figure out where to work. If you don’t have a spare room in your home to devote to a home office, consider getting creative. With help from More Space Place of Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte, you can transform your garage into the perfect home office!

Clean Up

The first step in getting your garage ready for your home office is to thoroughly clean out the space. Go through those decade-old toys, tools, and holiday decorations, and weed out what you don’t need. To really get organized, consider letting our experts help you design a custom shelving system. Our units will corral all of your tools and extraneous items to organize your garage to meet your unique specifications. Once you’ve cleaned out your space, you’ll be ready to set up your home office!

Garages, especially those without any windows, can sometimes feel dark and claustrophobic. Brighten up your space with various forms of lighting. Using a combination of standing and hanging lamps will create a visually dynamic and fun space. You can also paint the walls a bright color to liven up your area and disguise the concrete of an unfinished garage.

Another way to brighten and warm your space is to add some area rugs. This will help to insulate your garage and make it more comfortable. Since garages can get cold in the winter and overheated in the summer, space heaters and fans will be helpful for controlling the temperature in your office.

Get Technical

It’s important to make sure that your garage is hooked up to meet your technological needs. Ensure you have access to speedy wifi and a phone line, and make sure there are enough outlets to accommodate computer cords, printers, fans, and other electronics.

Tailor the Space

Depending on your specific business, there are a number of customizations you may need to make to fit your needs. For example, you might need to create additional sitting areas for visitors, or set up dividing panels to provide an element of privacy while working.

A great way to tailor your space to your unique specifications is with custom office furniture, such as desk units, shelving, cabinetry, and more. Every business is different, and everyone has their own personal organizational systems that work for them. More Space Place Sarasota can help you set up an office space that will maximize your efficiency and productivity. Contact us today to arrange a free, in-home consultation!

small home office Sarasota

small home office SarasotaIf you’ve been itching for a home office or even just a simple workspace in your home but have struggled with finding the room for it, you may be in luck. Customizing storage and built-in furniture solutions for any space is our specialty. Just because you don’t have a spare room doesn’t mean you don’t have the room for a home office. Today More Space Place Sarasota will explore some alternative options for home office designs that can be incorporated into small spaces.

Coat Closet

Do you have a small coat closet or other potentially underused storage space in your home? If so, this location could be a prime candidate for a custom home office or workspace! With the addition of a small desk insert, a simple chair, and some built-in shelves, you could turn this space into a highly functional work area that has a low impact on your home.

Under the Stairs

Some homes in the Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte areas have an empty space under a staircase often goes unused. This kind of alcove is a great place to incorporate a small study spot. The slant of the staircase makes it difficult to find a traditional use for the space, which makes a custom solution your best option, as it can be designed to create the perfect fit.

Empty Wall Nook

Another great alternate placement for a workspace is in that awkward wall nook you don’t know what to do with. It’s likely this nook in your bedroom, kitchen, dining area, or living room is currently either empty or not being utilized productively. Whichever room it’s in, consider turning this nook into a small home office.
