We weren’t kidding when we said we are custom home builders…
We have something so exciting to share! For the past few months we have been working diligently to find a Design Space. When we are working with our clients, we want to give them the best customer service possible, and we felt that by having a space with all of our plans, samples, ideas, and resources, we could improve that customer service greatly. After searching and searching, we came across a relatively outdated space, but being the visionaries that we are, we saw past all of it and we have created something we are extremely proud of.
As much as we want to post all of our pictures of the space on our blog, we are having a Grand Opening in a few months to showcase what we've been up to. Here we will be letting past, present, and hopefully some future clients into our center! So for any of you readers, you'll just have to take our word for now that this space is incredible. One thing that we can show you is this neat idea we came across to use epoxy on our work desk!
This is a test of the type of epoxy design that we were going to be using. Our design style that we wanted to create was similar to a "Shabby Chic" look and we felt like using white and black accents would really clean up the space.
We are always trying to do new and innovative designs and so our Design center is a testimony to how what we can do for our clients that no other company can! With this epoxy coating on our work desks, our design team is chomping at the bit to be able and get into the space and start creating and working for our clients!

When you're working with your at-home office space, regardless of scale, the best way to utilize your space is to prioritize the things you want to see in your room. The objects that you see every day in your office should be the things that inspire productivity. The very obvious, and basic choices are these:
Organized and spacious desk
Keep your walls neutral
Stay near windows
These are just a few of the many ways to stay productive in your office. When you keep your desk organized you spend less time searching for documents and folders which keeps your stress levels down. All the while, sitting on a comfortable chair allows you to work longer and more efficiently without having to take a break to stretch. While most of us have Desktop computers or Laptops that we work with, allow your space to have alternate seating away from your normal workspace. Take the time to relax or use this space for in-house meetings.
Finally, it's important to be aware of your surroundings. Blue has been said to have the most productive of all the colors, but make sure to keep your walls neutral. This lowers the amounts of distraction, but also as a Design aspect, it allows for a change of style during different seasons. If at all possible, try to make sure that your office has at least one, well-accessed window. Daylight can lift our spirits, as well as grant us plenty of health benefits!
If at all possible, use all these tips to create your own happy and healthy work environment at home. We incorporated these tips in our Leighfield Home Office and we couldn't be more thrilled with the outcome. Check out our Collection here.
