Many people are making the switch to more flexible working hours rather than the typical 8:00 am to 5:00 pm in South Africa. Spending more time with loved ones has become more of a priority and long commutes are literally a waste of your precious time. Also, working from home allows you to create your own working hours.

While working from home is great, finding space in your home where you can be productive with kids and pets running around can be quite challenging. Which is why you should consider having a dedicated workspace in the form of a home office. Additionally, a home office will enable you to separate work life from home life to make sure you don’t spend too much time working.

So now that you’ve decided to go ahead and start your home office building project, there are some things you need to keep in mind.

  1. You don’t need permission from any local authority if you’ll be using your home office alone. However, if you plan to hire staff and hold regular meetings, the opposite is true.
  2. When it comes to the design of your home office, it’s important to design it in a way that it is both appealing and practical. Also, take into consideration the noise and energy when you choose your office destination.
  3. Choosing a reliable, skilled construction and renovations company in Cape Town should be a priority. Making a decision based on price is never a great idea.

Just imagine having a sun-filled home office right there in your own backyard. No more getting up early just to be stuck in traffic. Plus, a lot more quality time spend with your family.
