As more and more people choose to work from home you may be considering turning a room in your Rotherham home into an office so that you can do the same.
Don’t forget to factor in ample storage solutions where required. It is important that you create a space that is not only functional but also one that is comfortable and aesthetic.
Here are some valuable tips to guide you as you create your home office:
- Browse online for your ideal ‘look and feel’. Unless you are perfectly sure of what you want your office to look like you may find yourself grasping for ideas. Fortunately there are many websites that can provide you with wonderful ideas that you can put into use. Websites like Pintrest and others are a good place to start.
- Ergonomics should be at the top of your priority list too. You want an office that is comfortable so that you can work for as long as you need to without tiring.
- Buy the right kind of chair and desk and make sure that your computer or laptop is in the right position.
- Put light front and center. When creating a home office the natural instinct is to try and recreate the office cubicle. You can do much better than that – put your desk near the windows so that you can get as much natural light as possible. Not only will your office look unique, you will also be able to work for longer without tiring.
- However much natural light you can get you still need lamps so that you can work evenings and nights. Choose a table lamp that has a soft glow as well as a couple more for the corners.
- Storage is very important in a home office or business. You should choose storage that is big enough and that takes the long term into consideration, but has enough flexibility for short term storage solutions as well. We allways recommend inhouse and external solutions such as self storage containers from Boylin’s in Rotherham.
- Your home office should blend in with the rest of your furniture.
- You could add a few shelves for books and vases.
- You need to create a space where you can have meetings with your visitors. Buy a small conference table and 3 or 4 chairs that you can place in the corner of the room.
- Personalise your home office – it gives it character. Buy a few items that express who you are and what you like and make sure that they are prominently displayed.
