Currently, having an office at home is a necessity due to the quarantine imposed by Covid-19. It is a requirement to work from home.

The challenge is to create a pleasant place where you can productively work with privacy without interfering with other house activities and where you have the necessary comfort to be productive at work during the day.

But, what are the ideal building materials to divide the spaces at home and locate an office? Carolina Custom Homes wants to share with you some of those top-quality materials that are also practical, beautiful, simple, and inexpensive.


Divide your spaces with style and get a beautiful office in your own home


Choosing the appropriate materials and having the advice of experts on the subject will contribute to the success of a project, saving you work, money and time.


  • Vertical slats: these partitions are moveable and work like blinds, allowing an office space with a lot of privacy and at the same time sophisticated. These types of partitions are inexpensive and look great inside your home.


  • Perforated panels: this type of panel has beautiful designs that allow light to pass through, facilitating productive work. Besides, they do not allow you to see from one side to the other, which is also useful when setting a home office to keep you away from other activities that might distract you.


  • Fixed wooden slats: these are fixed divisions made of wood that can be placed horizontally or vertically. They are very practical and functional as well as durable. At the same time, they are beautiful and blend in perfectly with some of the furniture in the house.


  • Sliding doors: this type of door is extremely versatile; when closed, they give you all the privacy that an office requires, but when open, you get a wider open space. These doors can be made of glass, wood, fabric, plastic, etc. It is an excellent option to divide spaces as well as to create others.


Transform large open spaces into small delimited spaces inside your house for different activities


We are taking giant steps towards a new way of establishing the use of spaces in our homes, because before we wanted open spaces where we could all participate in all activities at the same time. Now, it is a necessity to divide those spaces to create one for each activity.

Working from home, for example, forces us to create an office in a comfortable place that encourages concentration and that is also integrated into the general design of the house.

That is why at Carolina Custom Homes we would like to support you in your project, providing you with the necessary advice so that you create your own home office and feel comfortable while you work.
