We get it. Transitioning your workflow from your office to your home can be a bit stressful. We all get used to certain things in our routine at work and it can be difficult to stay focused and organized. During these times, remote work is more and more common. And if you’re one of the people currently working from home, we’re here to help. In this post, we’re giving you 5 ways to set up your workspace for success, so you can work at home like a BOSS.
Desks: A Workspace That Works For You
The first thing you should do is try to get a surface that is dedicated for your work. Sure, you can check on those e-mails from the kitchen table, but having a dedicated space like a desk really allows you to shift your mentality and help your workflow and stay focus. After all, the last thing we need is to have last night’s spaghetti accidentally spill on those reports.
Small space? No problem. There are ton’s of options like the Matera Small Desk to fit your workspace.
Chairs: Be Comfortable While You Work
Sitting for eight or more hours everyday can put a lot of strain on your back. That good old wooden chair might not be a good solution. Having an office chair that adjusts to different positions for your personal comfort & support preference is ideal. After a long-day of work, you’ll be thankful to have a chair like the Regulo Black High Back Desk Chair or the Fernando Desk Chair
Storage: Cluttered Space, Cluttered Mind
Have you ever had that moment when you need to find that paper you had last week, but suddenly it’s disappeared? We’ve all been there. It’s part of the average work culture, especially if you’re working remotely. Now, we hate to be those people, but the answer to a storage problem is simple. Get more storage. Having a storage solution like the Savi File Cabinet or Ashford Bookcase are great ways to keep you organized.
Lighting: No Light. No Productivity.
It’s been proven that having adequate lighting is essential to staying productive and focused. Imagine how hard your eyes are working to look at a computer screen all day; now throw in bad lighting, and you’re looking at a recipe for disaster. We recommend a lamp like the Ray Lamp for your desk or even the Flavio Floor Lamp can light up your space and help you work.
Accessories: Add Some Personality
Think about out the amount of hours you’ll be spending at your desk. It’s important you add your own personal touch to your workspace. Even if you have a simple desk, adding some accessories can add your own touch of your personality and fun. Try adding a pop of color or design like the Klara Blue Bottles or Lida Red Glass Vase
