If your list of New Year’s resolutions begins with ‘become a homeowner’, then congratulations! Buying or building a new home is a big step, it’s true, but it’s also a super exciting one. To help ensure you start off on the right foot, take a moment to consider these important points.

Australia may be open for business but working from home is here to stay. Many new homebuilders are unwilling to compromise on choosing between a guest space or a workspace. The spare bedroom which became our work bunker now seems a little undersized and overused, especially when friends and family come to stay. Here are three key reasons to choose a contemporary floorplan with a dedicated home office from Eden Brae.

The tricky tightrope of the elusive work-life balance

A home office undisturbed by the hubbub of what’s happening in the family space has become an essential aspect of the modern home. When it’s time for family dinner, you don’t want to look across the hall and see financial reports! Eden Brae’s designs reflect this new balancing act between work and home life. For example, the brand-new Toorak 31 floorplan, featured at HomeWorld Thornton, includes a stunning home office wonderfully separate and successfully insulated from the rest of the living space.

Make your home office work for you

Your workspace should inspire you to be productive, creative and organised. Instead of compromising on the needs of a spare bedroom, a standalone home office allows you to streamline your room design. Some really work-smart choices include allergen-sensitive flooring, labelled cabinets and floating shelves. What’s more, you’ll be able to choose a floorplan oriented to your land, ensuring plenty of sunlight throughout the day to help you stay refreshed and focused.

Long-term value

Eden Brae designs floorplans with the present and the future in mind. You really can have the best of both worlds! We want to deliver a home that provides for your family from day to day whilst still retaining value in the event of any exciting life changes that may be ahead.

Studies have shown that the inclusion of an office increases your home’s value by an average of 8%. That’s why our functional, future-proofed designs feature dedicated workspaces, such as the Waldorf 44MK2, Glenburn 35 Grange, Toorak 31, Livingstone 22MK3 and many more.
