Millions of Americans work from home, and that number is increasing by the day. Whether you work from your Hinsdale, Downers Grove, Lemont, or Elmhurst home full-time or a few days a week, a home office remodel can help you settle in and get down to work.
Most home offices start out as a spare bedroom, living room, or patio. Choosing the ideal room to convert in your home starts with choosing the room that provides ample space and privacy. In fact, it’s paramount that your office is a sufficient distance from distractions and the general noise of the home.
The best part of a home office remodel is that you can customize every feature to meet your needs. You can select built-in cabinets and shelves to keep things tidy. You can install as many electrical outlets and lights as desired. You can install speakers, televisions, and other features to make your work easier and more relaxing.
We can help you make small rooms feel spacious, and we can help you fill a dark room with light. Whatever your desires, our team can help you maximize comfort and function so that your home office is a comfortable sanctuary where you can focus on your work.

Everyone has a different vision for their ideal home office. However, there are some trends that are nearly universal. These desires include an office with a view, ample storage space, video conferencing capability, and high-speed internet access. You are also likely to appreciate a balance between artificial and natural light.
We can help you design an ultramodern space, or incorporate classical design elements. We can blend traditional features with custom features that are tailored to your specific needs.
Whatever your desires, our teams listen closely to your needs and focus their recommendations based on your objectives for the office. When your office is complete, you will be able to settle in and get to work as soon as the paint dries.

One of the most significant benefits of a dedicated home office is that it’s easier to separate your work and home lives, boosting productivity and satisfaction. Another is that you can equip it with an ergonomically designed desk and chair, which are much more comfortable and healthier than working at a kitchen countertop or dining room table.
Top considerations include choosing a location, deciding whether you need space for meeting clients, and how much storage you need. As with any home remodel, collecting online and print images of looks, layouts, and design features you like is a good idea. For instance, do you want a modern, minimalist space or a room that can double as a guest suite when needed?
Everyone’s design style is different, but the goal is always the same: a beautiful and functional space that reflects your personal preferences and blends seamlessly with the rest of the home. Some ways to make a home office your own include adding framed photos of friends and family, choosing an area rug, and adding a touch of nature with plants or cut flowers. Some people choose to display travel or sports memorabilia or, for real visual pizzaz, they create an oversized vision board.
If you have multiple rooms to choose from, pick the one that’s most comfortable and lets in plenty of natural light. If your choices are limited, look for a space that, at a minimum, can accommodate a good-sized desk or workstation. Other things to consider are easy access to electrical sockets for computers, printers, chargers, and desk lights, and whether you have enough storage — a mix of closed cupboards and open shelves is ideal. Along with good daylight, you’ll also need a combination of overhead and task lighting to boost your mood and maintain productivity.
The overall budget will include the cost of your new home office if it is part of a larger remodeling project. Otherwise, factors like whether you’re adding a wall or window to existing space will affect the price. Other expenses include permits, built-ins, painting, furniture, outlet installation, and soundproofing.
