Any home office that is contemporary, functional and practical can also boost productivity, job satisfaction, and keep the person who is using it healthy. Use these tips to kit out your home office and make it more efficient and effective for your needs.
Think about the function of the office
Do you use a laptop or a desktop computer? Do you really need a printer and/or filing cabinets? The basic goal is to determine what you really need and maximise on the space you have available. If your job involves a lot of paper and using files, you should opt for a relatively large working surface. In addition, if you only spend a short period of time on the Internet, then maybe a laptop instead of a desktop computer is more practical. This will save you space, allow you more functionality and improve the appearance of your office.
Follow the flow of the space
There is no doubt that a huge desk looks incongruous in a small space. It will limit your space to manoeuvre and to act quickly. On the other hand, small desks and pieces of furniture placed against the wall will cause inconvenience and discomfort in most workers. Choose furniture and accessories that will follow the flow of your office space and is sized appropriately for the dimensions of the room. In addition, think about how these pieces of furniture are arranged so that you can maximise on convenience and ease of use.
Opt for classic pieces
Almost every modern office needs a chair and a desk. Select classic, yet contemporary pieces that won’t feel outdated after 5 years. Of course, these accessories and pieces of furniture must provide comfort and complement the overall appearance of your office. Desks made of wood with straight, simple lines can fit in well in almost any kind of office and they will stay looking modern. When it comes to chairs, focus on finding an ergonomic chair that is easy to adjust. Of course, the chair must look good too, using materials and colours that work well with the decor of your office space.
Use some statement items in the office
The office space must reflect your personality and, if you invite clients to your home office, then an element of company branding and identity is worth considering. In order to make your office more vibrant, simply add some colourful or unique pieces of decor or art to inject some individuality.
