Over a year later, many people are still opting to work from home rather than go into the office. While you might have been able to make your temporary home office function well enough, it might be time to create a dedicated space if you plan on staying remote. Here are some ideas to keep in mind while designing your space:
Proper lighting can reduce headaches and eye fatigue and can even trigger the release of endorphins. You should use a combination of overhead lighting, lamps, and natural light to create an environment that’s comfortable but keeps you alert.
While some people like to work to music, most people work best in a quiet space. If you live with other people, and work with them in the house, you should consider a solid core door. This will help keep noise to a minimum and let you concentrate.
Your home office should help organize your belongings as well as your time. If you’re a visual person who likes to see their schedule, a big white board or even a chalkboard wall could go a long way. You can hang and install an actual chalkboard or simply use chalkboard paint.
Can’t risk getting distracted with a trip to the kitchen? You can set up a coffee or tea station in your home office to save time and hassle. You can include a built-in coffee bar in your home office remodel or opt for a small corner table. Just keep track of where your outlets are.
