A Guide to Decorating Your Home Officeby Klaudia Hubbard Marketing Consultant When it comes to work and employment, it is a fact that most of us work around the same model of 9 am to 5 pm. While the hours may fluctuate somewhat, and the type of work that we do may vary, the majority of us have to work out of an office or workplace that is usually at some distance from our homes. Doing so requires spending most of the day at the workplace, and often ends up messing with having a proper work-life balance.
Whether it is because you work remotely or run a business over calls and a computer, working from home could help you find the balance that you are looking for. Our minds work in funny ways, and working from a bedroom can cause you to lose out on productive working hours as well as quality sleep. As such, it becomes quite important to have a designated space to work out of. And not just that, if you are planning to continue to work from your home, you do need the workspace to be as comfortable as possible and suit all your needs. An office that is comfortable becomes a place where you’ll want to burn the midnight oil. Designing a home office can be a long-drawn-out process that requires the right step at the time. Thankfully we have done our homework and come up with ways to make things easier for you. To know more, keep reading:
Where should your office be?
The first step in designing your home office is to decide where the office will be. This depends on whether you will be seeing clients at the workplace, or does your work require you to work in silence.
Keep ample light.
Always make sure that you have enough ambient light in your workspace unless your job requires you to have to work in the dark. Place your work desk near a window to make sure that you have enough natural light. Having a window by your desk will also help with a view so that you are not constantly surrounded just by work. A well-lit place can help cut down on eye strain and tiredness and is necessary to have a healthy sleep schedule.
Choose function over form, but not too much.
Shelves and desks are definitely of use, but too many of them or nothing else can make your space look like a cubicle instead of a home office. Make sure that your home office is utility oriented, but still doesn’t compromise on being a creative space. If the decor of your home follows a certain theme, why not bring extend that theme to your home office and take a slice of it to your Zoom meetings as well.
If you are enthusiastic about the decor of your office why not tie up the room together with an office rug with a design that is not too homely or casual looking. Office rugs are usually solid, or with bold designs, and can work wonderfully to set a theme or reinforce one if it already exists. Using a good table lamp can also be a good accessory and an item of use as well.
The most important! A suitable table and chair:
You’ll most likely be sitting at the table and chair for extended hours, so why not make sure that your legs and spine enjoy them too. Nothing exhausts one more than bad seating without sufficient support. A good table and chair set keeps your computer and paperwork at a comfortable angle for your neck, while a good chair offers adequate lumbar support.
