How to Create Your Ideal Work From Home Space

Remember the days when we used to dream about working from home? We always pictured it to be this great luxury. Now that times have changed, and work from home life is here to stay for a while, some of us have found it harder to transform our current space into an ideal work from home space.

One of the keys to being productive while working from home is having a functional and dedicated work space. As we quickly realize we are in need of more room, a different layout, and better lighting, we begin to go into panic mode. It can be hard to find time in your busy schedule to take on a new home renovation project, even if it is on the top of your to do list.

We have rounded up some tips to help you create a functioning work from home space that allows you to be productive throughout the day.

  1. Identify Your Space – It’s almost a guarantee that you will find yourself spending multiple hours a day in your home office, so don’t stiff yourself on space. Think about where you would work best in your home and then figure out how you can transform your space into a functioning home office.
  2. Don’t Sacrifice Form for Function – When it comes to form over function it’s important not to sacrifice one for the other. Your office desk, shelves and storage pieces should serve you and bring ease to your work day. Think about your current workflow and consider items you need to create a functional setting.
  3. Your Chair – Investing in a great chair is key. You will most likely spend a full eight hour work day in this space so why not make it comfortable? This piece of furniture will be worth every dollar spent.
  4. Paint the Walls a Color You Love – When you think about adding color to your space, it’s okay to go bold. Sprucing up your home office by adding a color that will get your motor humming is a great way to create an ideal work environment. Whether you’re looking to keep it simple with a neutral or go bold with a bright hue the choice is yours.
  5. Keep the Light – It’s important to make sure your office has plenty of light. Setting up your space where there is not only a windows natural light, but also adding functional light fixtures can help keep you moving throughout the day.

Whether your home office will be designated as your new work from home space, a nook for organizing your personal schedule, or running a business, you deserve a functional space.
