In these modern times, professionals working from home is becoming more and more popular in many fields. If you’re looking to build yourself the perfect new home office, you need to consider a number of factors relating to both comfort and practicality.
At Finds Design & Décor, we’re here to help with every step of this process. We have a vast selection of desks, chairs, cabinets, bookcases and much more to help you set up the perfect atmosphere. Here are a few design tips for building yourself the perfect home office.
Location, Location, Location
Whether you’ll be spending most of your daily work day or just a few hours a week in a home office, the space and location concerns involved in planning are the ones you should look at first. Make sure the room you’re using is comfortable, plus if you’re easily distracted, look to avoid high-traffic areas near doors or other congregational areas. If you have children who get adventurous, look for ways to keep them from barging in as well.
Straining to see things can hurt the eyes and lead to stress – bad lighting has actually been proven to limit workplace productivity, both at home and in the office. Position computers or any other screens in a way that glare won’t be an issue, and consider how natural light can enhance the room.
Comfort and Practicality
Consider both comfort and practicality when designing your office, plus how the two can complement each other. Look for color schemes and furniture layouts that are visually pleasing to you, but also that work well within your expected functions. Choose accessories that assist with these functions but also fit into your aesthetic. With a wide selection of products available, finding items that fill requirements on both ends of the spectrum is easy.
Chair and Desk
Once again, a blend of comfort and functionality is the name of the game here. Your chair is a place where you’ll spend hours, and the desk is where you carry out most or all of your actual work – both need to work both ergonomically and practically.
Technology like computers and modems come with cords and various attachments, so just make sure these are fully out of your way. Many people encase cords in covering or tape them to corners to keep them completely separate, though be sure to keep a relatively simple ease of access open for any plugs or cords you may have to get to every once in a while.
