Whether you work full-time at home or occasionally need to conduct business in the evenings or weekends, a home office is a great way to utilize an extra room. A dedicated workspace in your home can be designed to increase productivity and comfort. Here are 5 ideas to help you create the home office of your dreams.
1. Get a Dope Office Chair
Investing in an ergonomic office chair is essential. You may be spending anywhere from 30 to 50 hours a week sitting in it, so your back will thank you. Purchase one with multiple adjustments so it fits you just right.
2. Get the Light Just Right
Fluorescent lighting is hard on the eyes. Make the switch to LED or halogen light bulbs in your home office. Try to let in as much natural light as possible. Also, consider finding a desk lamp to reduce headaches and eye strain.
3. Get Organized
Nothing says productivity like a clean, neat workspace. Select a desk with a lot of storage or install creative shelving to keep all the little things you need within arm’s reach.
4. Don’t Be a Bore With Your Decor
Pick a color you love and use it to spice up the room. Use cheery yellow or red or relaxing tones like green and blue, instead of beiges and browns.
5. Pick a Room With a View
If possible, place your desk so you are facing a window instead of a blank wall. Natural light can do wonders for staying alert. Bonus: you can give yourself a short mental break when necessary by looking to the outdoors.
Not everyone has the extra space, but if you do creating a dedicated work place will work wonders for efficiency, productivity, and creativity.
