Whether you work from home full time or just need a space to put in a few hours, having a comfortable and well-designed home office can make the difference between productivity and procrastination. As you consider the different options and design tips to utilize in your workspace, it’s essential to keep your personal style and layout in mind. Remember that even the most beautiful space isn’t useful if it’s uncomfortable.
Let In The Light
One of the most crucial items to consider is the effect of good, and preferably natural lighting. Natural light has a variety of positive results, including reducing eye strain, improving mood, and preventing drowsiness. With that in mind, you will want to avoid glare, discomfort due to heat, and unnecessary distractions caused by whatever is outside. It may help to point your desk away from the window and install a window tinting film.
A Place To Meet
If you intend to host meetings, entertain clients, or work from more than one seat in your office, having comfortable additional seating is a must. If your floor space allows it these might be situated directly within your office space. Otherwise, you may benefit from having one or two chairs set nearby that can easily be pulled into the room.
Shelving and Storage
Keeping your home office tidy and organized is a critical part to overall productivity. If you deal with any sensitive documents lockable storage, in particular, might be of use. Ensuring that your office space has the right amount of storage and shelving will help keep everything you need at arms reach.
Choosing Your Chair And Desk
Possibly the most important two items in your office space, your desk and chair are likely the two items that will have the most impact on your daily work. Not only can they significantly affect your comfort, but if your chair is not suited for you, it may affect your health as well. A high quality, ergonomic, and an adjustable chair is an absolute must.
