As millions of us now work from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many predict that our adaptations may usher in a new way of working for the long term.
And if the workplace becomes more of a permanent fixture where we reside, then home buyers are likely to place even more of a primacy on homes that can accommodate office or studio space.
In addition to sticking to a consistent schedule and changing out of pajamas, experts recommend creating a dedicated work space to be most productive while working from home. An ideal set-up includes a space outside a bedroom, with a door you can shut to cleanly divide work and home responsibilities.
Finding and delineating that space may call for creativity: you might adapt a walk-in closet or pantry, add French doors to an open doorway, or even capture space in a stairwell landing.
