Given today’s modern business landscape, more and more people are able to work from the comfort of their Encinitas homes. Whether you telecommute or own your own business, being able to work from home is an exciting prospect.
Creating a comfortable yet work-friendly home office is important in order to be efficient while working from home. Here are some tips on how to ensure your home office suits your needs.
Set up Adequate Lighting
Try and find the right lighting that won’t hurt your eyes. Since you’ll be spending most of your workday in your home office, choose a wattage that is comfortable for your eyes. If possible, natural light is the best light source.
It is very likely that while working from home, you may need to video conference with coworkers or clients, so be sure to have adequate lighting so you can be clearly seen.
Choose the Right Desk
Your home office desk should accommodate for all your working needs, and fit the size of the office. Don’t clog the entire room with a huge desk. Search online or at furniture outlet stores for good deals on home office desks. Make sure to take measurements of the room, and account for leaving room for walkways and other office equipment.
Choose a chair that is comfortable, but not too comfortable. Since you’ll be responsible for your efficiency during the day, don’t select a chair that will have you sleeping on the job! Make sure the chair fits your height, and doesn’t strain your body.
In addition to your desk chair, add additional seating elsewhere in the room. You may have someone in your home office at some point. You might also need to give your eyes a break and change seating locations for a quick work break.
It’s your home office, so design it as you see fit. Paint the walls a creative color that will stimulate the senses. Add artwork that interests you. Family photos are a great way to fill extra space on your desk or walls. Perhaps even add a radio to keep you awake during late nights in your office.
Above all, design a home office that reflects you. The last thing you want is a dull, boring office space that detracts from working effectively and efficiently.
