Joining the list of new homebuyer demands is the Zoom room. A Zoom room is an area of the home dedicated to conducting video conferencing for work, remote learning, or virtual family gatherings. Realtor.com says some agents are using Zoom rooms as selling points in listings. Two important features of a Zoom room, according to Realtor.com, are a professional look and an attractive, well organized background. But the most important feature is a strong Wi-Fi connection. Taking over an unused part of the home, such as under the stairs, can be perfect for a Zoom room, but it should be a quiet area as well.
To make sure you're able to maintain focus, you want this dedicated area to be in a quiet location, away from the main part of the house, if possible, says Karen Gray-Plaisted of Design Solutions KGP.
If you have a nook under the stairs, an alcove in your bedroom, or a section of the dining room to set up shop, these spots are worthy.
No privacy in the house? Try a folding screen to divide your space and create a little work zone for video calls.
2. Keep clutter at bay
Remember, your boss or an important client might be on your next Zoom call, which means you really shouldn't have a pile of clothes or unwashed dishes directly over your shoulder when you're on camera.
