According to figures recently released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), approximately 3.5 million of us are now regularly working from home.  This ongoing  flexible working from home trend means any property can benefit from a nook and cranny, or a separate room set aside as a study or office and these days, these spaces can add as much as 10 percent to the value of a property.

The home office could be a distinct room, or a portion of a space set aside for work and study. If you plan on undertaking some serious work from a nook or cranny in your home, consider spending some money on making it a practical and comfortable space. Custom cabinetry can even provide you with a desktop together with drawers and shelving for storage solutions.

A dedicated study or home office is a sensible idea with more people working from home 2-3 days a week. Moreover, a decent home office can add great value, especially if it has a separate entrance that ensures you can maintain a natural division between work and family life.  And don’t forget there are also tax deductions available for those businesses who operate from home.
