What is most important in a functional home office?
Are you now working from home?. It can be a big transition. You need an office that allows you to be organized and will inspire you to get your work done.
What is important in a Home Office?
- Organization and designed around how you work
- Work surface and storage
- Room for computer, printer and other equipment
- Office environment that makes you want to work
- Good lighting and comfortable seating
Not everyone’s job is the same, so each Home Office needs to be designed around how you work and what type of environment will be conducive to you being productive.
1.Organization and Design
When I work with someone regarding their office I always ask them questions about how they work. What is their process as they go through the day?. Do they mostly work on the computer and do Zoom meetings or are they project and paperwork driven?. Do they just work from home some of the time and also want to use the room for a den?. A lot of thought and planning needs to go into designing a home office. You can get a lot more done when you are organized.
