Working from home is an increasingly popular trend that millennials around the world are loving.
Whether you’re designating some space for running your business or you’re looking for a corner to sort out finances and organize your schedule, every remote worker deserves an office that’ll make them want to buckle down and get to work.
Keep reading to find out our top tips for carving out the perfect space for your personal work station!
Your space should be a reflection of your personality:
When designing your mini office or work station, it is important to ensure that everything is tailored to suit your taste and personal style. If you’re into drama and depth, don’t be afraid to add a chandelier above the desk to add a little glitz and glamour. If you prefer a more minimalist space, then rid your space of any extra sideboards or counter-top supplies.
Whatever your design choices are, remember that the functionality of your office will determine how well you stay on top of the business side of things!
Location, Location, Location!
Not everyone has a budget to rent or buy a home with enough rooms for a private office. An obvious secondary spot to put a mini workstation is the living room, since it’s usually the biggest spot in the house. While wedging a desk into a corner sounds easy enough, it can be quite difficult to make your work nook just right. You want the workstation to flow with the rest of the decor of the room, but you also want the area to feel professional enough.
If your living room is narrow enough, you can also designate an entire wall to your home office. Other reasonable office locations include a nook, under the staircase, or even a makeshift cubicle by the couch.
Dim lighting is notorious for straining the eyes and causing headaches, which are two things that can quickly lower your productivity at work. Use natural light as much as possible, but don’t be afraid to supplement where it falls short. If your office doesn’t have a lot of windows, consider the addition of a skylight or several lamps.
A well-lit office is a happy, productive one.
