In the modern world, more and more individuals work from home. Although appealing to many, without an appropriate office space, mustering up the motivation to work from home can prove difficult.
In the latest blog post by Williams Windows DG Limited, we’ve put together some top tips to help you get the most from your office redesign.
If you’re likely to be sitting at your desk for around eight hours a day, it is important that you get the best seat in the house. Don’t let your creativity be zapped by a computer screen, but seek inspiration from the outside with a window view. As well as giving you a little pick me up, taking your focus away from the screen and out into the natural light will also be a welcome break for your eyes.
If you won’t be working at home alone, or you have an attached or semi-detached home, you may find it helpful to put yourself in the quietest zone in the room, away from any adjoining walls.
As pretty as we all may want our home offices to be, before you carry out your office redesign, you will need to consider the practical elements of the space.
Everything from the height of your shelves to how many plug sockets you will need and where they will be positioned will need to be considered, as well as your nearest phone line and where you will store important documents.
Sitting under harsh lighting day in, day out, won’t do your eyes any good, but saying that, dim, relaxing lighting won’t be great for your motivation either.
A desk lamp can help keep you focused on your work in hand, without being too intense. However, if you’re lucky enough to have natural light flowing into your office, have your office redesign make the most of this and avoid obstructing the window with any dark fabrics.
