Hello World! Welcome Friends! Working from home is something that many people are choosing to do, making it just as important to have a functional office in your own home as it is to have anywhere else. It doesn’t matter what type of job you have, as its equally important to create a space that enables you to concentrate and focus with little distractions and plenty of facilities to help with your everyday tasks. Here is a selection of things that many people forget to consider or include when it comes to incorporating a home office into your home.
Choosing the Right Room
If you’re going to go to the effort of transforming one of the rooms in your home into a stylish, practical home office, then you need to make sure that it’s the right room for this purpose. There’s no point in placing your office next to your child’s playroom, the kitchen or the living area, as these areas are often busy, loud and constantly in use throughout the day. You want to position your office in a quiet area of the house that has less activity throughout the day, as this will ensure you can concentrate and focus with no distractions.
The Right Colors
Many people will decorate a room with their personal style in mind, which often works for certain rooms. When it comes to decorating your office however, you want to choose colors that are going to help make the room a positive, motivating space. Color can have a strong effect on the mind without you even noticing, so it’s important to consider which colors will work best for you. Green and blue are both very popular for office décor, due to the natural, bright feel they provide. It’s much better to decorate a room in a neutral shade to keep the tone light, which can then be enhanced with colored details to add character and style.
Practical and Functional
This is an aspect of interior design that many people overlook, especially in rooms like a home office. The main aim of your office is for it to be a space where you can work and focus, meaning you need the right features to help you do so. Including features such as a bookcase with essential books related to your work, filing cabinets to help store your paperwork away neat and in order and finally having an area to wind down and switch off. While having your desk with computer and paperwork is the most important part, it always works well to include a small social space where you can sit and read, or simply zone out and get carried away in your own thoughts.
Quality Desk and Chair
While it may seem like an obvious feature to consider, your desk and chair are two vital pieces that are going to determine whether or not you can concentrate fully and get the most out of your office. Comfort is the key with any office space and a comfortable chair is really going to help you. It’s also beneficial for your back too, as you want to be as supported as possible. When it comes to your desk, try to keep the style consistent. If you opt for a stylish oak desk, then adding some oak bookcases, an oak coffee table and so on will keep the style flowing throughout the office and add character to the room.
Keeping personal items in your office is a very good way of making the room feel a little more relaxing and welcoming. Items such as family photographs, artwork and even certificates can help to spark creativity and motivation. Similarly, adding fun features such as a stress ball, some colorful stationary and a scribble pad will help you to feel more at home and less like you’re in a corporate office space.
