As working and learning from home is more prevalent than ever before, and home builders are responding to the needs of homeowners. Trending today, families are needing more than one space to use as a study.
The group of award-winning quality home builders in The Woodlands Hills offers many innovative options to establish more than one perfect place for you and your family to work and learn.
Many builders are offering optional “flex” spaces in their floorplans. These areas that were traditionally considered to be used as a formal dining room or guest bedroom can now be converted to a study with French doors, children’s playroom, or hobby/fitness area. These flexible options make a home more functional and livable with the option to use that however you desire.
In select floorplans, builders offer “pocket offices” which are small nooks with a built-in desk that is installed off the kitchen area, in a bedroom or media room, or upstairs within a loft, for example.
Homeowners are now planning for their children to be home more now for schooling, so they need a place to do their schoolwork and study, as well as a place to play. Parents need more of a retreat, away from the kids’ space, to focus optimally and have privacy when working from home.
Talking technology, many homebuilders offer the Google Home Connect program with every home that includes the Google home bug to control your thermostats, lights and stream music or news. A HomePro technology consultation can guide homebuyers through everything they need to know about state-of-the-art technology and pre-wiring for optimal working from home with little to no interruptions to your daily lives and activities. You can also install extra plug outlets throughout the home as well as several USB charging locations.
The added insulation you would find in a media room is now ideal for an office where Zoom meetings and conference calls can take place without noise interference, or in children’s areas where little ones can cut loose be “kids” without disturbing the rest of the home.
To keep noise away from your work / learn space, or to keep noise down from a kid’s play area or a teen’s cave, there are many strategic additions you can do during construction and right before you move in:
- Extra insulation in walls
- Full-wall bookshelves
- Sound-reduction paint
- Soundproof wallpaper
- Textile wall covering
- Acoustical wall paneling
- Acoustic cubical partitions
- Soundproof room divider curtains
