Tips For Creating The Perfect Home Office

Updated: Feb 23, 2023

With so many people working from home, it’s inevitable that you have a home office. Whether you’re turning a complete room into an office or just converting a corner of another room, you’ll need to be proactive with building out your workspace.

Home office

Create a Sense of Separation

The room should feel like an office and if you are simply taking over part of another room, such as your bedroom, keep it separate. This means putting up a divider, curtain or simple delineating the new space with a shelf or something similar. You need to be in work mode when you sit down at the desk and having a clear change from the bedroom to the office is a necessary part of creating the office space.

Use a Real Desk

Don’t settle for some rickety table to work on. If you want to work hard, you will need a real desk for your workspace. The actual desk design will depend on your needs, but it should have a wide enough surface to handle your computer, laptop, or any paperwork you may need to do.

The desk should also have drawers designed specifically for your needs, whether you wish to store office supplies, books, or paperwork. This is especially true if the desk is the only real piece of furniture in the space, as you will need to ensure that it does everything for you.

Set Up Excellent Lighting

If possible, the office spaces should have a window to let in natural light. Barring that, you will need to ensure it is well lit with a lamp or other method of lighting to keep your space bright. Not only is a dimly lit office less efficient, but it can also cause you to feel sleepy while working. It’s best to have brighter light and preferably plenty of daylight.

Add in Storage

Do you have items that you need to put away for your office? If you do more than work on the computer, you’ll likely have paperwork and equipment that is key to the business. Be sure to include sufficient storage for everything you will need to store there.
