Home office design ideas

craft room | hobby room | hobby room ideas | fbc remodelWhen it comes to designing your home office or hobby room, you’ll need to consider exactly what you need from your space. Will your space be strictly a home office? Do you need a dedicated area for guests in the room? Or are you looking for a more flexible room that can be used for different things?

Decide ahead of time who will be using the room, how they’ll be using it, and what specialty additions you’ll beed to make it a perfect fit for your lifestyle.

What equipment do you need?

You’ll want to consider what equipment and appliances youll need in your specialty space. For an office, do you need a printer or a desktop computer? If you are creating a craft room then specialty storage can help keep your room clean and tidy with everything in its perfect place.

Coming to your design consultation knowing what your must-haves are for your new space will help your designer build the room around your needs to create a space that is a perfect compliment to you.

How many people are using the room?

How many people will be utilizing your home office or craft room will determine the size of the room, the furniture to be included, and how much space you’ll have for custom additions. If you’re sharing an office space with your children, you may want to include an additional work station for doing homework or home schooling. Some offices can double as guest rooms or other multi-purpose areas so consider all of the uses that you would like to get out of your new space. Bring that to your design consultation so your designer can work with you to ensure that you are getting the most out of your new space.

How often do you plan to use your home office?

Take into consideration how often you’ll be using the room and if you want it to be a permanent or transitional space. Do you always work from home? Do you run a home business that always needs a dedicated space? Do you try new hobbies often and need something more transitional?

With a more flexible room, we may want to leave room for additional furniture, or keep storage more generalized. For the jack-of-all trades, a more standardized space leaves room to adapt to your hobby of choice as you find it. For the more concentrated hobbyist, we can develop storage solutions that are specified down to the exact drawer you’ll keep your tools in. When it comes to how you’ll use your home office or hobby room, the world is your oyster.

What technology will you need?

The amount and type of technology you’ll need will impact the design of your room. It will depend on your vision for the room and can dictate overall costs. Do you need great high-speed wifi to use for work? What kind of lighting is ideal? If you’re doing crafts or photography, lighting will become a major design feature of your room. We can design a room to perfectly fit your technological needs including internet, projection features, even soundproofing.

How private do you want your home office or craft room to be?

When it comes to space planning, you’ll want to know how accessible your office should be within your home. Do you want it right off a living room with an open archway, or down a hallway in a private closed off room. The level of privacy you’re looking for will impact how and where we fit your specialty room in with the rest of your home or basement remodel.

Customer Reviews

FBC Remodel is proud to Build Joy® for homeowners. See what our customers have to say about working with us.

“FBC did an amazing job with our 1600 sq ft basement. The sales team listened to our vision, offered several options and helped us stay within budget. Our PM was fantastic! We received daily communication with minimal life interruption, realistic expectations and partnered with us to ensure every aspect was covered. They even finished early!!! We had met with 2 other contractors and are so happy about our choice! They accommodated our quirky requests for a brewery room, rerouting our laundry dryer vent, closeting our water piping for access and exterior window well changes. Best choice ever!!!”

Heather R.

“The design/construction approach by FBC produced an excellent finished product for us. We added a large recreation room for pool, TV and games along with a bedroom and bathroom. Ceiling soffits, arched entries and angled walls created a unique and inviting space. The project team and trade partners did fine work and we are very happy with our new basement. All work was completed on schedule and within budget. The best part was having all construction access through the basement window. Our only advice is to carefully review all design details to assure that everything you want is clearly specified in the drawings. Then be part of the team by doing quality control as the project moves along.”

Darrel H.

“We can't say enough about the design team at FBC. We had multiple companies bid on our project and everyone else came back with the same basic design (a good but not spectacular layout). But FBC looked at the space from a completely different angle and in the process was able to create everything on our wishlist including an extra room. The design was elegant and functional and our family now benefits from it every day.”
