A home office is a designated space for running a business or letting creativity do its thing while working remotely from home. This important space deserves more than a metal desk and extra chair stuffed into a spare corner. Why?
Working in an office that inspires, energizes, and comforts workers allows for optimal productivity and efficiency. A fully customized home office setup creates an exciting place to get engaged with work tasks and complete exciting projects.
Make a Floor Plan
A floor plan is an excellent way to organize ideas and plan a high-functioning layout. Begin by measuring the space or room where your home office will be set up, and then measure the office furniture to get an idea of how much space is needed. Once the measurements have been gathered, sketch or use a layout software to plan the placement of office furniture. Be sure to include clear paths to enter and exit the space, and enough room between objects to utilize the space in an efficient manner.

Personal Lighting Options Good lighting and a pleasant view have been proven to help boost office productivity and employee moods. Try to design your home office with natural light in mind as it will not only energize you throughout the day, but also keep you warm and toasty, helping to cut down on those pesky power bills. When lights are needed for those early morning work calls, consider using personal lighting options such as the LED Hutch Task Light or Vamp Led Light for direct, gentle-on-the-eyes light sources.
No view? No problem! Position your desk to face a pleasing piece of artwork that inspires you as you look up from your work, or include an electronic photo frame queued up to display the special moments and people in your life. Having something nearby that is enjoyable to look at is a good way to regain mental clarity and focus when working through a challenging project or task
& A Good View
The science behind ergonomic furniture makes working an office job easier, (and more comfortable) than ever before. Invest in some new furniture for your home office and boost productivity while still practicing self-care. Invest in a new chair, like the Coolmesh Pro Plus Executive High Back Chair, or get a standing desk to encourage healthy lifestyle choices while not missing a beat at work. There are even ergonomic accessories you can get to personalize the space with amenities that will help with all-day comfort and functionality.
Storage & Organization
Clutter and mess can distract you from your work and cause a shift in your mood. Combat the urge to keep everything on the desktop and opt for a stylish Vertical Hutch Organizer to keep files sorted, or try out the super-handy Locking Mobile Box/File Pedestal for easy access to files and storage.
Having a designated space in your home that is solely used as a workspace or home office is an important factor for your work/life balance. After putting in your daily hours at work, it’s essential to be able to close the door or move to another room and allow yourself to rest and disengage. After all the hard work is said and done, relaxation and rejuvenation are only a few steps away!
