Creating a functional office space can be simple with these tips:
Pick an appropriate sized desk: Assess the space that you have and determine the size of the desk that will best work with that space. There are many different options available to consider. Large desks, small desks, desks with shelving and more! Pick one that works for your home and for what projects you’ll be working on.
It’s all about the décor! Decorating your home office area will help create an environment that you actually want to spend time in. Consider details like paint color, rugs on the floor and other decorative accessories.
Keeping the space clean and organized is key. Storage bins, desk drawer organizers and boxes that hide cords, are all great options. A clean office space will help clear your mind for productivity. Have a lot of paper? Vertical files help organize and keep it all at an arm’s reach.
A good chair is crucial. Make sure that your chair is comfortable and it is something you’ll be able to sit in for hours to get work done. Lighting is also an important factor. Don’t forget good lighting. Great lighting and a comfortable desk chair will really go a long way.
Often times, home office spaces are overlooked and we tend to put together whatever left over furniture and supplies we have. However, chances are high that doing that won’t create an effective work environment. With a few simple changes, your office space will be an area where you actually want to spend time in.
