The current situation has encouraged multiple employers in the entire world to choose and mandate work from home. Whether you have a designated workspace, an area to organize correspondence like bills, or a small corner for kids to do their computer research, you understand it now more than ever that you and the family deserve more than an uncomfortable chair and the desk in the nook. Why? Because an office that reflects your personality and comfort is a place where you would love to tick off your to-do list, without looking at the clock.
You know that you need to have a dedicated office when you find out that the work files or laptop charger go missing in the kids’ books and toys and see your kids invading your Zoom meetings. You love spending time with the family, but the shared space starts to distract you and wear you out while working. This is a perfect opportunity to unleash the interior designer in you and set up an ideal workplace, in the comfort of your home.
In this blog, HOF will help you create a modern home workspace that will contribute to your WFH success with its 7 useful tips. Let’s dive in!
Location is vital
Home offices come in all shapes and sizes. It can be a separate room in the quiet atmosphere with low traffic, a built-in desk in your bookshelf, a corner in the living space or your dining table and kitchen table. The key questions that decide the right space are how or where would you love to work and how much distraction can you withstand. If you are a single person or a mother, then you can choose the kitchen table as your workstation. If you are a professional, then you will want a place away from the living room or kids’ playroom.
Invest in an ergonomic chair and desk
Do not compromise function for eye-catching designs. Always invest in chairs and desks that serve your body’s needs and match your workflow. An ergonomic office chair is worth every rupee as it supports your posture, keeps you productive and takes care of your well-being. Choosing an ergonomically sound desk will keep you organized and inspired to complete your tasks.
Storage and shelving
Storage is often overlooked in a home office scenario. To make it look distraction and clutter-free, add floating shelves to display your books and files. Locate a shelf nearby your desk to keep all the reference material, office documents, files within the arm’s reach.
Tame the technology
Nothing makes a home office look more unorganized like the stack of wires. In today’s world of shorter attention span, keep your equipment’s wire from hanging from your desk and running everywhere by going wireless. Add wireless desktop, mouse, printer and router or use desk grommet to give your office an ultra-modern and clean look.
Lighting and view
A well-lit workplace can take all the eye-strain and headaches away. Make sure your office location has plenty of natural light sources. Position your desk beside a window to avoid glare. Add extra lights like overhead ceiling lights and task lamp on the desk to get extra lighting in the evening. Give your desk a view – either with a wall full of inspirational quotes or a window with a view of park or sky.
Accessorize it with a personal touch
The best thing about your home office space, you can accessorize it with the things you love and elements that inspire you. You can get a vertical shelf and decorate with the books you love, the collectables, gadgets and more. It will brighten up your space with a positive vibe and make you feel at home.
Add a loveseat for the power naps
When you work from home, you work extra hours to get things done, you eat your meals on your desk and sometimes take a power nap to charge your brain’s batteries. Bring home a bright loveseat where you can unwind, straighten up your body and just relax.
