If you know you’re going to be running your business from home, then you’ll need to create a space for yourself that is purely for business. Whether that means you use a spare room into a study, or convert an outdoor building into an office, it’s crucial that you are able to separate your work and home life.
What Will I Need?
Interior: To create a space that feels clean and professional, you may find that certain renovations to your existing room may be necessary. Beautiful timber flooring is worlds away from laminate or pillie carpet – and your clients will notice it. If that’s the case, then it may be wise to use experienced custom home builders.

Exterior: This may be more complex, especially if you are having potential clients and customers visit you at your home office. If this is the case, then consider a separate entrance for your clients so they aren’t required to walk through your living room. Custom doors can create an impressive entrance which can reflect your business if done right. For instance, a large timber door is striking and will instantly instil confidence, while a sleek modern door is perfect for an IT company.
Perhaps you’ll be working with your customers outside as a custom builder yourself. In which case, you may need a dry area to display finished pieces to your clients. Consider modern pergolas and verandas, which can be tailored to your needs. They can also provide a space for clients to wait if you often schedule back to back meetings. For a more secure feel, commercial fencing can add a professional touch whilst protecting your home workspace from unwanted intruders. With the right additions, any home office can be fitted out to the same high standards as the big companies in the CBD.
