Mike Hendren, founder of Hendren Custom Homes, going over the blueprints for the next custom home build.


Selecting the Ideal Location

Choosing the right spot for your home office in your Northwest Indiana home is crucial. Look for a quiet area with minimal foot traffic, ideally away from busy family spaces and noisy household activities. A small, separate room with a door is perfect for privacy and work-life balance. If space is limited, consider multifunctional solutions like a guest room with a Murphy bed, which can serve as an office when not hosting visitors.


Office Design Essentials

At Hendren Custom Homes, we focus on custom solutions that meet your specific needs:

  • Ergonomic Setup: Prioritize comfort and productivity with ergonomic furniture that reduces strain and boosts efficiency.

  • Natural Light: Position your desk near a window to benefit from natural light, which boosts mood and energy. Each direction offers unique advantages:

  • South-facing: Ideal for consistent light, perfect for video calls.

  • North-facing: Great for creative tasks requiring softer light.

  • East-facing: Best for morning people.

  • West-facing: Ideal for those who enjoy afternoon light.

Styling Your Space

Incorporate elements that make your space uniquely yours:

  • Plants: Add some greenery for a touch of nature and improved air quality.

  • Personal Touches: Decorate with personal items like family photos or artworks to inspire and motivate you throughout the day.

  • Effective Organization: Utilize creative storage solutions like floating shelves and modular cubbies to keep your space tidy and functional.

Creating a Cohesive Look

Ensure your home office feels like a part of your home:

  • Harmonious Design: Match the style and color schemes of your home to create a seamless flow.

  • Quality Lighting: Combine natural light with effective artificial lighting to maintain visibility and reduce eye strain, especially important in today's digital age.
