For many of us, working from home is essential for your work or business. A laptop on the dining room table or a desk stuck in the corner of your bedroom makes it difficult to get a whole lot done, though. What you need is a customized home office that actually makes it feasible to be productive at home. For help on accomplishing this, consider these tips:
#1 Get the Right Furniture
Your office needs more than a desk. Home offices need a clear work area, providing adequate space for computer hardware, a spot for paperwork and other materials, and more. Make sure your office furniture provides ample space for work and storage so you aren’t cramped or cluttered.
#2 Conceal Cables and Wires
With necessary to get your work done, unsightly cables and wires make space seem messier than it really is. There are many ways to do this, like bundling cords together and making sure to arrange them so they are hidden behind furniture.
#3 Follow Ergonomic Rules
The top of your computer screen should be at eye level or a little below. As you scan down the screen, your eyelids will naturally close a bit and moisten, which serves to reduce eye fatigue. You should also position your keyboard so your forearms are parallel to the floor and adjust your chair so your feet rest firmly. Your back will thank you!
#4 Embrace Natural Light
You don’t want to squint all day long! Place your desk close to the windows, but place it parallel to the panes. This ideal set-up gives you the happiness benefits of natural light, and a good reason to turn away from your computer every few minutes to take in the scene outdoors.
