Nowadays, working from home is the new normal. With lots of businesses offering remote working as an option and an increase in the number of freelance workers, working at home in your own time is the new way to forward your career. However, if your home office is chaotic, cramped and cluttered, there’s no way you’re getting any productive work done. Your study should be the perfect place to knuckle down and focus, so we’ve put together these four simple steps to create the perfect conditions for working from home.
When designing a home office, try to allow plenty of natural light to flood in through the doors and windows. A healthy dose of vitamin D will not only lift your mood but may also boost your productivity and inspire creativity and innovation. Be sure to angle your desk so that you’re facing towards the window. This will you get a lovely view of the garden and further to this, it’s also a good way to exercise your eyesight during a long day behind a computer screen.
Personalise the space
Aside from the freedom to eat when you want, take breaks when you want and respond to emails in your slippers, one of the best benefits of being able to work from home is that you can create a space that is truly personalised to you. You can decorate your home office any which way you like, whether that’s with bright, bold colours and funky furniture or a soothing, minimalist design with a few personal touches.
Personalising the space doesn’t just mean aesthetically; if listening to music helps you to focus, why not install a quality surround sound system? Or, if you’re fed up of arguing with your co-workers about when to switch the heating on, you could install an easily adjustable climate control system to regulate the temperature so that it’s just right for you.
When it comes to decking out your study with furniture, you can enjoy putting your comfort first. Finally free from the shackles of uncomfortable office chairs, you can take your time to invest in a chair that will support your back and find a desk that is the perfect size for you. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could kill two birds with one stone and opt for an exercise bike or treadmill desk; who wouldn’t want to get some work done whilst also burning a few calories?
The final step in the process of creating a productive work-from-home environment is to invest in smart storage solutions that clear the space of chaos, clutter, and most importantly, distractions. By installing bespoke fitted furniture, you can ensure that your office storage is perfectly suited to your needs. Whether you need oodles of space for stacks of paper filing, or you have lots of electrical equipment and you want to tuck away the cables, a fitted study unit can offer the perfect smart storage solution.
