Tips to Create a Stunning New Office For Homeworkers
One of the most crucial tasks to cross off your list when planning a new home office is choosing the right furniture. When looking at desks and chairs, try to focus on practicality and comfort as well as aesthetics. It’s so important to opt for a comfortable chair if you spend long periods of time sitting at a desk. Your chair should provide support for your back, particularly the lower spine and it should enable you to sit straight with your shoulders in a relaxed position. It’s a good idea to use an adjustable desk or table so that you can modify the height. You should be able to type without stretching and the top of the screen should be level with your eye line so that you don’t have to crane your neck. You can use a laptop stand if you don’t have an adjustable desk.
Your working environment plays a vital role in productivity and the ability to concentrate and tackle tasks to the best of your ability. If you’re too hot or cold, it’s noisy outside or you can’t get comfortable, you’ll find it difficult to focus and work through your to-do list. With summer approaching, it’s a good idea to think about how you’re going to keep your office cool. If you don’t already have air conditioning, you could consider investing or you could fit a ceiling fan in your new workspace. It’s important to keep up with AC maintenance. You can make use of a 24 hour AC service if your units are not working properly, but regular checks and services will lower risks. It can also be beneficial to set up your work area in a room that is well-ventilated and to keep windows and doors open to let air circulate when the AC isn’t on.
Studies suggest that we respond to the setting in which we work. While light, open spaces can enhance productivity and boost wellbeing, dark, cramped, noisy spaces have the opposite effect. Use your creativity and interior design flair to create a space that inspires and uplifts you. You can use accessories and accents to add colors or prints, create a focal point with stylish furniture or bring the outdoors in with plants and vases of flowers. Plants are proven to increase productivity and reduce stress levels.
If you’re working from home, it’s natural to want to spend your days in a room that makes you feel comfortable, content, relaxed and motivated. Set aside an office space, maximize natural light, invest in comfortable, practical furniture that promotes good posture and make sure you can control the temperature. Customize the space with finishing touches and accessories.
