Following on from the previous blog, we will talk about the essentials your home office will need for you to continue being productive in the comfort of your home. Remember you will be sitting in it for most likely 8 hours a day, so it has to be comfy with a sturdy desk and comfortable chair.
One of the most important essentials for a home office is the desk, somewhere to put your computer or laptop. You may think that a sleek console table is a great choice, but you need to think about what you need in front of you. Choose a desk with ample space, built-in storage and a stunning design.
Something that needs to be high on your list is the office chair. You will need to make sure you are comfortable as well as your posture is suitably supported – a dining chair is not the answer. An ergonomic chair is the answer – a chair that is designed to enhance your level of comfort and reduce pressure on your body and ensure it is suitably supported for the many hours you will be sitting there.
The home office should be filled with as much natural light as possible, keeping your Vitamin D levels topped up and reducing your eye strain and headaches, however on darker days, or in smaller spaces, you want to make sure you have the right light, positioned correctly.
Create a place for everything with our storage solutions. Choose from style open shelves and bookcases to drawers and cabinets with enough space to store all your office materials. So no going and picking them up at the end of the day when you are supposed to be relaxing, as they will be stored in their specific place.
Creating a dream home office environment with these tips
Your bespoke office design should be more than just an aesthetically pleasing and practical space to work from.
Include the outdoors
Design some plants into the room such as succulents, cacti, a herb garden or some botanical accents, they will give your office a stunning style, but improve your health. The presence of nature and greenery helps us to relax, reduce our stress levels and improve productivity too, so add a houseplant to the top of your list.
Keep to the right temperature
Comfort is one of the main priorities in creating a good working space and you need the right temperature in being productive. Open up the window on warmer days and when the temperature drops, keep the room warm – but not too warm that you start to feel sleepy.
Add some sound
To get you in the right frame of mind and a peaceful working area is for it to be quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and other family members. Some individuals simply cannot focus with a little background noise, so make a playlist that helps you get into the zone.
Make a personal statement
Add a personal touch to your home office environment with your favourite photographs and artwork. Items like this should motivate you and inspire you to have a good day.
