Having a personal office space when you’re working from home can make it easier to focus and keep your work-life balance where it should be. Let’s take a look at these Clayton homes with an office or built-in study nook that’s designed to fit your needs.
Are you working from home or taking online classes? Maybe you need a space for the kids to study or just an organized place to post everyone’s schedules and pay your bills. Maybe you’re looking for a quiet retreat or place to be creative. Whatever your needs, having a desk or office nook in your manufactured or modular home is a perfect solution. With these offices, you can take that meeting, homework assignment or fun project anywhere.
Built-in hallway desks are convenient and space-efficient, whether they are in an alcove, in a corner or at the end of the hall. The desk in the Versailles is a great example of this feature, with cubbies and drawers for storage and organization, as well as a desk with elbow room and space for laptops, binders and papers.
The Lulabelle features a built-in desk at the end of the main hallway. This is a great place to work on homework or answer some emails. Drawers and long shelves give you plenty of space to store school supplies like extra paper and highlighters. Plus, the outlets above the desk are ready to charge laptops or tablets.
The 7030 High Rock 6028 has a handy nook by the hall tree in the entryway. Kids can have their backpack hanging close by, and there are small shelves built into the side to keep books and notes organized. It also works for a place to jump in a quick meeting on your laptop or jot down a grocery list before going out.
A flex space is just like it sounds. Essentially, it’s a bonus room to make into whatever you need at the time, whether it’s a child’s playroom, a home gym or, in this case, an office. You’ll have a room to match your flexible schedule, especially if you are taking classes or working partly or fully remotely. The 3533 Jamestown has an open archway off the dining room leading into a small office from the dining room. You stay connected to the main hub of the home but have your own spot to concentrate on work.
If you are looking for a more private office, The Anthony’s flex space has sliding doors that can open into the living room, but what’s even better is that the room has another entrance, connected to the primary bedroom. Enjoy the shortest commute ever by walking into an office with tall double windows for natural light. You also have the option for a built-in desk in the room.
The Bluebonnet Breeze has another flex space that can easily become an office retreat. It has multiple entrances, making it easy to pop in and out of when you need to. Plus, you won’t have to stress about using a background filter for virtual meetings; the room has stylish textured wallpaper, light trim and sleek wood-style floors that match the rest of the home.
Looking for a private work area that also uses space effectively? Between the primary bathroom and bedroom in the 1714 Heritage is this lovely built-in desk nook. With the large mirror, it can double as a vanity and a workspace. Three tall cabinets are also next to the desk, giving you extra storage, and there are two outlets on either side of the mirror. We also love the window directly behind the desk, letting in natural light to study by and giving you a pleasant view when you take breaks.
Need a place to make your to-do list, sign school forms or keep the kids’ homework from the night before? The kitchen is often called the heart of the home, and a built-in desk is a great addition to it when you are making dinner while also helping your child with math homework. The Farmhouse Breeze 56 has a desk built into the countertop, and you still have plenty of space for ingredients and cookware.
The utility room is also a convenient place for an office feature. The Stella is a favorite example, with lots of counterspace and drawers built in, and several outlets for your computer and devices. The top cabinets contrasting in color to the bottom ones also give a distinction for different types of storage. You can keep your laundry products in the cabinets under the sink and use the top cabinet for work-related folders and supplies. Plus, your office will smell like fresh linen!
