More and more people have found themselves working from home this year. In turn, this has made having a dedicated office space that is comfortable and functional a necessity. One of the advantages of living in one our new homes in Charlotte NC is that our floorplans allow for a home office.
Location, location, location – This real estate adage is true even when it comes to having a home office. A quite space with a door and windows for natural light is preferable. The ground level of several of our floor plans have a dedicated office space. The rooftop and fourth floors of our other floorplans have a bonus room/bedroom or flex space that can be converted into a home office.
Design your room – There are certain colors that are known to increase productivity and boost creativity. Consider painting your office walls natural colors (blue, green, red, or yellow) or earth tones. Include a calendar to help keep you organized, books of your craft, and inspirational messages and artwork to help motivate you. Bringing in elements of nature, such as plants and other greenery, are also a good idea.
Set up your workstation – Choose your desk of choice that will work best for your needs. It can be a standup desk, floating desk, traditional office desk, or managerial desk. Then position your desk away from the door but not directly in front of it for Feng shui. You will want to make sure your back does not face the door. Get an ergonomic chair and add your mouse pad and keyboard wrist pad to increase your comfort.
Implement your technology – Technology is a big part of our everyday work lives. And power strips will be your lifesaver. Get a cord organizer to neatly organize cords for your printer, lights, laptop, or computer. Consider getting a minifridge or coffeemaker to help you remain focused.
Incorporate storage – Open shelving, built-in cabinets, and other storage units are imperative to helping you reduce clutter and stay organized. The walk-in closet in one of our bonus rooms can easily be used to create additional storage space for your office.
Bring on the light – Light is a key element to making your office space work. The natural light in your office will be a good source of lighting. But you should also have light at your workstation. A desk lamp, chandelier, and floor lamp should work.
A home office is easy to create when you have a plan. Our new homes in Charlotte NC at the Terraces at 36th Street, Plaza Row, Luxity Terraces, and Reece Duets provide an ideal space to create a home office.

With their understanding of the Charlotte real estate market, current construction standards, and systems to ensure a quality product. The value Vista Homes provides for their customers is unmatched.”
“We have been so pleased with our new Vista home! The floorplan and finishes were exactly what we were looking for in a new home in NoDa. The project managers, sales coordinator, and other services we received in regards to our home were top-notch. Special thanks to Ariel, who addressed every detail and made it all so perfect! Thank you Vista Homes for building just where we wanted to be! We couldn’t be happier with our new home.”
“During the homebuying process, we came across what is now our beautiful Vista home. We spent countless days and nights researching and making sure we were making the best decision possible. The process was made easier by all of the help provided by Vista Homes and their fantastic team. They’ve held up their end of the bargain and still, even after a year plus, have been helpful in resolving any issues I have had. We would definitely recommend working with Vista Homes!”
“We love our Vista home! The Vista team was easy to work with and very responsive. We found our own lot and worked with Vista to build on it. It was perfect, as we were able to save some costs compared to a custom build and not have to stress about every little detail. We get complimented often on the quality of our finishes, fixtures, and appliances, which are all standard in Vista homes!”
“Can I give 10 stars?! Vista Homes is by far my vote for the best quality, most honest, and overall most knowledgeable builder in the Charlotte area. I have completed probably a dozen deals with Vista and each experience is somehow better than the last! The whole team is great- everyone from ownership, sales people, admin/office crew to contractors. Anyone looking for the best possible experience when building a new home should without a doubt call these guys!”
“We have been in our Vista Home for over a year and still can't believe we’re fortunate enough to live here! Vista provided us with our dream home at an incredible value. A recent appraisal estimates that we have gained $70k in equity already. If you are looking for a beautiful, quality home in some of the hottest areas in Charlotte. I highly recommend you look at a Vista home."
“Quality was top notch and our home was completed ahead of schedule. Communication and transparency were amazing. Mariessa and Chandler also went above and beyond to answer all of our questions and make sure any concerns were addressed. We are so grateful to have worked with Mariessa, Chandler, and the rest of the Vista team.”
