Work and Study from Home

Tips & ideas to create ‘work and study from home’ spaces in Indian homes!

Ever since the pandemic, the concept of work from home has come to stay, especially with professionals who work on their laptops all day long at home!

The residential apartment builders in Hyderabad and other Indian cities have been quick to respond to this change. The 2BHK and 3BHK homes are being offered that may have separate study or office spaces as part of the new-age designs. Alternatively, in the floor-plan (2-D or floor-plan design) itself, the architects are giving ideas on using other rooms to integrate a work from home space in your apartment.

It’s important to use the existing spaces in the most efficient manner to work or study!

Although the builders might offer additional design elements in the home plan, eventually the needs are determined by the home buyer.

For instance, you could have a family of 4, husband-wife working from home, with 2 or more children studying from home. So, you need four work or study from home options within your existing home!! You need to cater to the needs of all, whether it is for work or study, and provide a productive space that serves the purpose.

This also depends on how much square foot area is available to you in your 2 or 3 BHK apartment, builder-floor or independent-villa.

More important, how you plan your work and study from home spaces also depends on the available budget!
