Working from Home

It seems like more and more people are working from home these days. And our homeowner’s are no different.  With remote abilities, it has become important to have a designated space within your home that is a quiet area to complete your daily tasks.

Whether you’re an accountant or an Esty handcrafter, we can help customize the right space for you. Your home should reflect your interest and passions while creating a soothing place to complete your work.


Something to Keep in Mind: Furniture and Tools

I really recommend you keep in mind the furniture and tools you’ll be using as well as how you want your work environment to feel.  The materials you use for flooring, wall colors and light can all make a huge impact and help inspire you every day!
