With a grow­ing em­pha­sis on achiev­ing a healthy work-life bal­ance, more home­own­ers are re­al­is­ing the value of plan­ning a func­tional space in their do­main where they can work from home. Whether you’re on a flex­i­ble work scheme or hop­ing to re­duce your time spent trav­el­ling to and from the of­fice, hav­ing a proper work­sta­tion in the house of­fers the op­tion of op­ti­mis­ing your time and be­ing able to at­tend to the other ar­eas of your fam­ily and per­sonal life as well. “These days we find more mom-trepreneurs who need to work from home while rais­ing their young chil­dren. For those who do not need to be home­bound and are more mo­bile, they tend to opt for co-work­ing spa­ces, which have be­come a pop­u­lar trend,” says Terri Tan, the de­sign di­rec­tor of De­sign­worx In­te­rior Con­sul­tant (de­sign­worx.net). Weizhang Lin, the de­sign prin­ci­pal of Su­per Fat De­signs (su­per­fat­de­signs.com), also notes another grow­ing trend. He says, “Home of­fices have al­ways been in con­stant de­mand, but home of­fices in­cor­po­rat­ing work­shop­type func­tions to in­dulge in craft­ing hob­bies have been re­quested more fre­quently lately by our younger clients.”
