Do you work from home but you don’t feel motivated to actually get things done? We have the solution for you, let’s change your Home Office!
Your home office must be the place that most inspires and motivates you because, let’s be honest, work will not eventually disappear, you really must get things done. The problem is that usually you end up using your home office as storage for all the paperwork and sometimes even for things you don’t even know why you keep them. Let me tell you, it doesn’t work as decoration; actually it absolutely ruins the mood for working. To help you to create a dream workspace we reunited 5 steps that will completely solve your problem. Let’s get down to business!
Step 1: Lighting
Lighting is one of the key points to have a good environment in your home office. Big windows are always a good option, since natural lighting makes a space feel bigger and brighter. It’s not possible to put some big windows there? Don’t worry. Use a light color in your wall instead, it will fix it. However, you also must add some artificial lighting and if you can choose one that joins functional with good aesthetics the better.
Step 2: Storage
The paperwork, covers and important files that you have been collecting among the years won’t simply disappear. The solution is actually really simple. Add some shelves and items such as suspended files and organizing folders to help you out with keeping all the paperwork organized and easy to find. But never forget to fit those items in the décor of your home office!
Step 3: Comfortable but Functional
It’s really important to choose the home office chair right. Since you probably will spend hours in front of your computer or writing in your typing machine, if you’re into the good old times, you want it comfortable but not too comfortable so that you won’t get lazy. So pick a model of home office chair that is ergonomic and adjustable in height so that your spine is straight, your arms can be supported at the elbow and your head is at an appropriate height from the screen, trust me, you don’t want to be an old lady/man before the time comes and you have no option.
Step 4: Add some nature
You cannot forget to add some nature elements in your home office. Nature is capable of light up your mood completely. You will feel happier, healthier, calmer and at the same time optimist and energetic. Find a spot and add some of your favorite plants at your home office!
Step 5: Personal Touch
This is the most important step, you have to add your personal touch, after all it will be your little corner. Hang some paintings or motivating sentences on the walls, add some pictures, but ugly ones so you don’t distract yourself. Enjoy that the environment is all yours and choose elements that make you feel happy and comfortable while working in your new home office.
There’s no excuse now, you’re going to work better than ever!!!
