Working from home is more popular now than ever before. An increasing number of people work from home a few days or hours per week, while others have adopted the approach full time. The benefits of such a lifestyle are many, but it is not without its own particular set of challenges – distraction being a major one!
So, whether you’re working from home full-time, part-time, or need a space to study and get all of that important college work done, we’ve got some tips to help you transform any room in your home into a dedicated work zone.
Set the table
First things first; you’re going to need a desk. What kind depends on your needs. If you’re looking for simple and elegant, this Ford desk is absolutely perfect. However, if you’re the type that likes to take good old-fashioned notes and has a lot of pens and paper scattered about cluttering up the place, a drawer or two might come in handy.
Take a seat
Next up, the all important seat. After all, it’s where you’re going to be sitting for hours a day, so you’re going to want something comfortable. Though that’s not the only consideration; are you going to match the chair and table for instance? Or is your chair going to be a completely separate entity, used mainly for practical purposes?
Style it up
One way to boost your productivity when working from home is to create a work friendly environment. Add a splash of colour to room to unleash your creative side. Consider what inspires you, and choose a piece of wall art that makes you think.
If you’re a stickler for time, why not add a stylish clock into the mix? Plants, real or otherwise, are also help to get the creative juices flowing. Music also has the ability to inspire. If you’re one of those people – like me – who need to have their favourite tunes on the go while typing away, then a set of quality speakers are a must!
