1. Maximize and Save Space

The primary benefit of custom home office cabinets is that they can transform any space, taking a room intended for sleep into a room intended for work with the right design and the right type of storage. Does your home office have funky angles? Weird walls? Is it a small nook under the stairs or a large spare room you’re not sure how to fill? Custom office built-in cabinets are made to fit the exact dimensions you need, making your space as usable as possible.

When cabinets are custom fit to your space and they’re designed for the exact purpose of the room, they inherently maximize the amount of usable space you have and no area goes wasted. When designed with other space-saving features like custom office shelves, file drawers, printer storage, and cord management, you can maximize the functionality of your home office even further.

2. Enhance Organization and Storage Capabilities

Custom office cabinets make it easy to stay organized and store everything you need all in one place. Dedicated storage for notebooks, writing utensils, charging cords, scissors, and stamps ensures you find exactly what you’re looking for when you need it. When everything has a pre-planned place to go, it makes it easier to keep things exactly where they belong.

When you’re not on calls or head-down focusing, a home office can work to keep everyone in the family organized by having dedicated storage for things like bills, paperwork, notes, and permission slips that come home from school. Proper storage and organization prevent these things from getting lost in a pile on the kitchen island.

3. Seamlessly Integrate Technology

A strong technology setup is crucial to smooth work-from-home days. Aside from a solid Wi-Fi connection, our designers will ensure your custom office space has plenty of space for your laptop and desktop monitors, speakers, printer, and more. We take the extra step to keep everything flowing smoothly and tangle-free with outlets that are integrated into drawers and cabinets along with cord organization and management.

4. Elevate Aesthetics

Sometimes the things that make a home office productive are not the most aesthetically pleasing. Things like the printer, extra reams of paper, binders, and office supplies are often better stored behind doors and drawers. Designing ample closed storage into your home office reduces visual noise and clutter making it easier for you to focus and more pleasant.

At Inspired Closets, our custom office cabinets come in a wide range of colors that suit any style or space. You can work with your design expert to choose a color that blends right in with the rest of the home, or you can go for a bold look that stands out and sparks creativity. You get to choose whatever works best for you.

5. Reflect Your Personal Style

Aside from colors, your custom home office cabinets can be designed and installed to fit any given style. Go for an elegant, classic feel with floor-to-ceiling custom home office built-ins, a more modern vibe with a sleek shelving system, or a combination of everything to get the look and functionality just right. Add artwork, books, and decor to a built-in bookshelf, glass cabinets, or open shelving to personalize your office even further.

Getting the right look and feel for your custom home office design can be a bit overwhelming, not to mention time-consuming. So, we make it easy. All you have to do is invite one of our designers over and share your thoughts. Maybe you saw a picture in your favorite home magazine or you have a Pinterest board of ideas. Whatever you have, our designers love seeing what inspires you, and they’ll take it from there. Our design tool allows us to create a 3D rendering of your space so you can see your options, make any changes before the product is ordered, and be sure that your custom home office design is exactly what you want it to be.

7. Tailor Your Space to Your Profession

Another perk of a custom home office design is that you can create a space that’s tailored to your specific profession. Whether you do more traditional office work where you just need a comfortable desk and space for your computer, or you’re in a creative field where you need to store and work with art and craft materials, you can have a space that supports each requirement of your job.

8. Save Money and Increase Your ROI

Custom home office cabinets that are built with quality materials and craftsmanship will stand up to wear and tear which saves you money in the long run. Custom storage also ensures you’re getting exactly what you want so your office space will serve you for years to come–no need for remodels down the line.

A home office can also function as more than just a place to get work done. Craft room, family command center, or a guest room that’s actually functional–a thoughtfully designed, dual-purpose space gets you more bang for your buck. Plus, according to Curbio, bonus rooms like a home office can add $10,000 to $30,000 in value to your home, making the return on your investment worth it in more ways than one.
