Designate a Room
This space needs to be a place where your creative juices can flow and where you’re free from distraction so find a room that will be off limits to others during your work time. To keep you motivated, rooms with natural lighting and doors to block out outside noise are ideal.
Create the Perfect Flow
In order to obtain the right flow of your home, make sure that your styles and colors mesh throughout your home. If you’re looking to design your home office space, find pieces that blend with the furnishings in your living room, dining room, and bedrooms which will make the spaces work well together.
Keep it Professional
In order to do this, use bins, cabinets, and shelving to keep everything neat and tidy. This will save you time when you’re looking for certain documents and make your space feel more open.
Implement a System
While it’s awesome to work from home, it can also be hard to have a schedule. Determine a time every day where you’ll get in your office and get down to business. Develop a task list every day and check off items as you complete them.
Design a Comfortable Environment
Find a keyboard that provides support to your arms and writs to prevent carpal tunnel syndrome. Choose an ergonomic chairs that will provide support to both your back and neck. You can also avoid eye strain with both your desk and overhead lighting.
Dress for Success
Even though you’re not in the office, showing up in sweats and slippers can decrease your productivity. Instead dress for success and you’ll be ready to tackle each day and when a client wants to meet unexpectedly, you’re already prepared!
