Creating a stylish and efficient office space in your home doesn’t have to cost a fortune and doesn’t mean completely redesigning a room. Efficiency, comfort and a peaceful atmosphere are all key ingredients to that perfect office for working from home.Remember to support your backNo matter where you work in your home you’ll still require suitable seating, and that’s where office chairs should be synonymous with support and comfort. If you’re going to be spending a lot time at your desk you should pick a high quality chair with plenty of back support. An ergonomic chair will help you to achieve the correct seated posture while being a stylish addition to your office. Having the right functional furniture will also give your home office an added degree of professionalism, meaning when you sit down, it’s time to get to work.
Make it more than a corner, make it an office
Of course, you need to have the space to work. If you’re not lucky enough to have a dedicated room to use then consider a spacious corner area with enough space for a desk. Your desk doesn’t have to be large, just enough room for a computer, a phone and that all important mug of coffee or tea. If you use a lot more equipment than just a laptop then choose a space to meet your needs but remember that clutter isn’t conducive to work. Streamlined is always a better look.
Don’t forget the little touches
Working from home does give you a greater degree of flexibility and freedom; you’re no longer stuck to rigid office hours (hopefully!). This means that you can be a little more relaxed about playing music or reaching for that extra (important) mug of coffee. Home workers do need to separate home from work life but having a good coffee machine and some background music playing through your computer speakers are nice treats throughout the day. Invest in a stylish table lamp, a wall clock and some office décor such as framed wall prints or a vase with flowers to make your office space a little more inviting.
Go for comfort and style but keep it professional, and remember that a window letting in some natural light is the office worker’s best friend. Create a nice office environment in the home and you’ll have created a place that you actually want to spend some time in.
