  • How to Set Up Your First Home Office

    Many companies have introduced working from home policies since the Coronavirus outbreak. But if you’ve never worked remotely before it could be quite intimidating to wonder what you would need to create the perfect office environment. Follow our tips below to create a productive and relaxing environment to complete your work.

    Identify & Create A List Of Needs

    Your office needs will depend on the type of career and sector you work in. For freelancers or those in a more laidback field, you may just need a laptop and a notebook to start working, but if you work in a more specialised field you may need more technical equipment.

    It may be a good idea to create a list of what you need as a must, what it would be nice to have and what you want to work towards - this could be higher quality equipment or the perfect wall art.

    Find A Dedicated Spot In Your House

    To avoid distractions in the home, finding a quiet place to focus is quintessential to working efficiently, this is notably important if you share a house with roommates, a partner, or children.

    It is important to try and find a spare room with a door to reduce distractions and noise, this is especially important if you’re working with sensitive information. Having this dedicated room will also help you turn into ‘Work Mode’ and aid your focus during working hours.

    If you’re unable to find a devoted room to act as your office space, a desk in a quiet nook of your house will still be suitable. Ensure you aren’t using this desk for anything else other than work or it may disrupt your ability to concentrate.

    Picking The Right Furniture

    Although it may be tempting to plop down at the kitchen table or buy cheap furniture to get you through, if you’re serious about working from home you will need to find office furniture that will keep you comfortable and supported for a full day of work, week in week out.

    Investing in a proper office chair that will support your back with a spacy desk that means you won’t be cramped up will be a great impact on your health, as well as keeping you happy and motivating you to be as productive as in the office.

    Create An Inviting Space

    You will want to make sure the space you’re working in is inviting to spend time in, to ensure you don’t slack off or spend time worrying about putting those boxes in the corner of the room into the loft. Ensuring you have an empty space, adding a lick of paint to brighten the room, adding artwork, soft furnishings or plants will create a relaxing environment to keep you focused.

    Consider Your Office Lighting

    Working in a dull room will cause you eye strain and headaches, as you try and focus, adding appropriate lighting to your office, will allow you to be more productive and healthier.

    If you have windows in your office ensure curtains are open wide and windows are opened throughout the day to provide airflow. If you don’t have appropriate natural lighting you can add lamps to your room. Consider adding a desk or standing lamp for written work or a wall lamp to provide light all day.

    Pulling Together The Finished Piece

    Ensure you have everything ready for your first working day. Adding all the final decorations and hanging your painting will ensure you’re prepared for work as the clock ticks to 9 am. Don’t forget to give yourself regular breaks and spend time away from your desk to give your body a break.
