Some of the best recording artists of all time produced their greatest works right at home.
And I have as well—scrawling lyrical ideas on the back of a napkin at the kitchen table and belting out my lungs in the shower.
In all seriousness, I have toyed with the idea of getting back on the horse. The thing is that I’m no spring chicken. The kids these days would much rather listen to Taylor Swift or Billie Eilish. But hey, I also know that I have nothing to prove, nothing to lose. My love for music transcends any desire or need for external validation through fame, money, or status.
As passionate as I am about music, any time I sat down to write or practice, I struggled to focus on getting into the zone. I realized that I needed to integrate music into my home office somehow. The songwriting process is like a flowing meditation—you need a space where your mind can wander, where you can let loose and express your innermost, deepest thoughts without losing momentum.
I have always had a dedicated room in my house that serves as a casual office. But I could never really get into a flow state there. I guess it just never inspired me.
To get inspired, I decided to convert the space into a recording studio. But what was I going to do with the rest of the office? There needed to be some separation between the musical space and office space, but how would that all fit together? I did some digging on the web apparently the open office is out and cubicles are in! I even discovered that businesses in my area are installing cubicles to redesign and maximize their office space to improve worker productivity.
It turns out that one of the fastest cubicle suppliers is located right here in Orange County. My cubicles were delivered soon after I ordered them. Awesome and sturdy, they were surprisingly easy to install! Without these cubicles, I would have had to spend loads of time and money on remodeling to get the musical space and office space configured the way I envisioned. If I ever do want to change the layout, I can easily reconfigure the cubicles by moving them around.
I can’t believe I didn’t think of this solution sooner, but I sure am glad that I eventually stumbled upon it. I am happy that I now have a space that inspires me to spend more time on what I love. And the whole project was a breeze from start to finish. Cubicles have helped to elevate the space so much that my creativity and productivity are heightened. I find it easy to focus without being interrupted or distracted.
I also look forward to having friends and family join me in jam sessions or as a multi-use, multi-functional hybrid co-working space. I am thrilled with my new office and studio. Why didn’t anyone tell me about cubicles sooner? Well, I guess it’s better that I learned about the solution sooner rather than later. And I lived to tell the tale!
