Working from home is the new normal worldwide given the pandemic situation. Surveys indicate that remote workers are happier and more enthusiastic than office-bound workers. But finding a comfortable spot in the home to sit with your laptop and multiple documents can be troublesome. So, now is the ideal time to create space for your office.
Here are a few ideas on creating a comfortable working space in your existing home:
- Select a room, space, or location away from other rooms. Your workspace should be free of any disturbances. Make sure it is away from your children’s room. It would be ideal to choose an unutilized or spare bedroom. You could also remodel your basement to be your home office. Try to pick a room with a window. As closed walls can be sometimes frustrating.
- If you don’t have a space, room, or basement for your home office, then create one. Try considering a portion of your large dining room. Or make use of the unused space in your store-room or any existing room that is less used.
- Still, lack space at home? What about your open-aired patio? A garden office? Yes, you can make an office in your courtyard. What can provide a better ambiance for working than natural fresh air? Remodel your courtyard to build a stunning home office and work while enjoying nature.
- Now that you have space to create a home office, the next step is designing it. Of course, you can’t work in a dull room. Design the office to make it comfortable to work in. Proper lighting is a must. Make sure that your office has adequate light for late-night works and video calls. Color the walls or hang new wallpaper. Place a few plants around for good air quality. Creating your own home office can be fun.
- First and foremost, your home office needs to be comfortable enough to work for long hours. Include appropriate furnishings and floorings. Also, make sure your office is properly wired in order to operate your computer, printer, fax, etc.
Here are a few things to keep in mind while constructing an effective home office:
- The first thing that you need to keep in mind is that your home office should be spacious. A cramped space will lead to discomfort.
- Your chair and desk should be comfortable. You may even want to consider a standing table.
- Another important factor to be kept in mind is the internet and mobile connectivity. Your home office should be in the network coverage area for you to be able to work efficiently.
- It is essential to mount enough plug-in connections and switchboards to support multiple gadgets. Apart from computers, printers, faxes, you also need a socket to charge your phone. Since you may work for long hours, a coffee machine, a mini-fridge, or an air conditioner can be installed too.
