As a leading home builder in Boise ID, we at Brighton Homes know how important home offices are for today’s buyers. We also know how to create home office spaces that you’ll enjoy for years to come.

One of the best ways to do that is with built-ins such as desks, shelving, and storage cabinets. Customizing your home office is easier, more economical, and better-looking when your home builder installs built-ins at the time of construction. Doing so also ensures that your office is ready for you as soon as you move into your new home. You won’t have to put up with a disruption in workflow if you decide to have it done later.

Following these suggestions will help you get a home office that looks great and functions well:

  • Decide where in the room you want your desk. Think about the locations of doors, windows, and heating/cooling vents when deciding.
  • How big do you need your desk to be? Do you need a large work surface? How much storage do you need within reach? If you’re particularly tall or short, you can have your custom built-in desk made to fit you perfectly.
  • Do you need additional shelves or cupboards in the room? A combination of open and closed storage works best in most offices.
  • Don’t forget the extra touches such as a built-in window seat where you can relax and read or dream up your next big project.

These tips will also work for customizing a home learning space, craft room, library, or other flex space. Brighton home designs include flex spaces that we can customize to suit your needs.

Our Seminole home design is a one-story, 2,350 square foot home with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a 3-car garage. This home has a den between the family room and the owner’s bedroom.

The Augusta home design is one of our larger plans, ideal for those who want multiple flex spaces in their home. This two-story 4 bedroom home is 3,185 square feet and has a den just off the front entry. At the opposite corner of the house is a flex room and on the second floor, you’ll find a spacious media room.
