Build a Home Office You Can Work In

Build a Home Office You Can Work In

Over the past couple of months millions of people have been working from home. Those who have, may or may not have had a dedicated space to work from in their residences. If you haven’t gotten around to creating a home office space for yourself and still work from the kitchen table, you’re in luck. Today, we take a look at what makes a modern office built for productivity.

Access to Power and Internet

No matter what you decide to do about your home office, you definitely will need access to power and bandwidth. What good is a desk that doesn’t have power available? Not all people have the space to make a dedicated office, but if you carve out a space where the Internet is fast and there is a reliable power source, you should do alright.

Position Your Workspace

Aside from the connectivity issues, there are some solid practices you should consider when setting up your home office. First, you will want to situate your workspace in low traffic areas. If you have an extra bedroom, a loft, or simply a lonely corner you will definitely be apt to get more done than if you are working from the writing desk in the hallway you got from your grandmother. After all, the less distractions you have, the better you will perform.

You will definitely want to have enough light to not nod off during your more menial tasks. You should also try to find a flat surface with a chair that doesn’t cry out “nap here” while you are sitting in it.

Avoid Clutter

Obviously, when you are stuck in your house most of the time, constantly cleaning can be extremely annoying. You know what? Just do it. The more junk you have laying around, the worse your headspace is going to be.

Comfort?

Now this is the real challenge for the person working from home. Your house is built to be a refuge for you after you have completed all of your daily tasks. Now that you are stuck there, there is the tendency to use your comfy surroundings while you work away on your laptop. This isn’t ideal, but if you can make it work, do what you please. 

Working from home can be a challenge for people who haven’t been allowed to before, but it can be a wildly rewarding experience that will change the way you look at your job, as long as you don’t let your home’s comforts eat up your productivity.
