Home Office Design that Works for You

The number of American working from home is now in the millions making the need for a home office less a luxury and more of a necessity.  Rising energy cost and increased time in traffic is making telecommuting the best and most productive way to work.

Work space is no longer the kitchen table or the corner of a guest bedroom; we have now promoted it to a space and room of it’s own.  If you are wanting to create a home office space or spruce up your existing one here are a few points you may want to consider.

Match Your Work Style

Match the way you work when choosing furniture and layout of your home office.  If you like everything to be in it’s place make sure to allot enough storage and file cabinets.  If working on several projects is more your style allow room to set up smaller work stations dedicated to each project.

Separate Your Space

Although you are working from home it is important to design your home office to draw the line so home and work life do not blend together.  You will be much less tempted to take television or laundry breaks in the middle of your day or work when you are to be away from the office.

Make it Comfortable

 Being comfortable in your workspace is conducive to being productive.  The use recessed lighting and desktop lights that dedicate light to task areas that are used for reading to reduce eye strain.  Physical comfort is key in productivity.  A small couch or armchair for guest seating or to provide a reading area away from your desk.  Make sure your desk chair has adjustable and well cushioned for comfort.

Your Style, Your Environment

Bright colors and clean lines or dark woods and rich colors “one design does not fit all”.  Here is your chance for your work space to reflect your interest and personality.  Restrictions on what you believe a home office should look like no longer apply.  Make it your own: You are the one spending most the time there.

We would love to help you with your real estate and helping you find the office of your dream in your new home.  Give us a call we are here to help!
