Home office ideas

When it comes to designing your home office or hobby room, you’ll need to consider exactly what you need from your space. Decide ahead of time who will be using the room, how they’ll be using it, and what specialty additions you’ll need 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? Maybe specialty storage for a craft room. Come to your designer knowing what you want to highlight within the space so they can build the room around your focal-point. 

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. For example, 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. 

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 room 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. 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 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.

Home office and hobby room options

A home office or hobby room is entirely customized to exactly what you need. Whatever it is that fuels you, we can build a room for it. From golf simulators to sewing rooms to music rooms, we can craft a space that is perfectly fit for you. Building a home office fits easily into your basement remodel timeline and you can work with your FBC Remodel designer to find the best way to fit your hobby space into your home. Because these spaces are so customizable, cost can vary greatly and will depend on the additions and built-in additions you put in the space, like built-in cabinetry versus moveable furniture pieces. Your designer can work with you to build a space that works with your budget, for you.
