Designing a Perfect Pocket Office in Your New Home
July 09th, 2021

Home office space is hugely useful, but is it more useful than a guest bedroom? Or nearly as exciting as a home theatre and media room? Is a home office anywhere near as fulfilling as a dedicated home gym? Productivity from home is smart - but you’ll feel so much smarter when you get the most out of your space.

That’s exactly what you’ll do with a pocket office - a mini-workspace created outside the traditional spare room. There are a few key elements to the success of a pocket office, but we’ve got the formula you need to make yours just right. With a pocket powerhouse like this in your new home, you’ll wonder why you ever considered taking over a whole entire room for your work-from-home office. Read on and find out how to build a perfect pocket office in your new home from The Providence Group.

The Ideal Pocket Office Location at Home

When you’re designing any space in your home, location is always the first consideration. Where you put your pocket office determines how that space will be used. Somewhere out of the way, like the owner suite, makes it private and less likely to be used by guests or the kids, for example.

Conversely, putting your pocket office in a high-traffic area really brings out the full potential of the space. Using an alcove by the kitchen, chats with family will happen naturally. With office space in the family room, kids can get to their homework and supervision is simple. And by having your pocket office In a loft, mudroom, or entryway alcove, you can still get some quiet and room to focus without totally blocking off all access.

Building a Pocket Office With Style and Convenience

It’s one thing to use off-the-show-floor furniture to create a workspace - but custom built-ins add a refinement and style that’s totally undeniable. When you build a new home with The Providence Group, you have the option to build a purpose-made pocket office right into your new home! Any of our home designs that say “optional built-ins” indicates an opportunity to build a desk (and more). A built-in from The Providence Group will complement your home just as well as any piece of furniture can, so if you’re interested in what’s possible reach out to us!
