Whether you’re in Northampton, Milton Keynes, or Buckinghamshire, if you’re working from home you still need to operate with your business head on. So every morning, the best way to get into the right frame of mind is to fill your work space with home office furniture. Not your dining table. Not an old dressing table. And definitely not your breakfast bar. No! Home office furniture dedicated to a specific purpose – facilitating your work in your business.
So, what do you need to think about to achieve this home workplace ideal? We thought we’d pass on our ideas...
Top tips for choosing the best home office furniture for your needs
First off, let’s have a look at the basics:
Find a good home office desk to suit your workflow
Are you a computer whizz, a paperwork squirrel, or meetingtastic fantastic? Good home office furniture is purposely designed, so it’s just as functional as its office equivalent; there’s no need for you to compromise. Pick a home office desk that’s height adjustable, caters for your wiring, and can accommodate your monitor or laptop and still leave you loads of space.
Treat yourself to an ergonomically designed home office chair
Yes, you may just be ‘working from home’ but you still need to look after your health and wellbeing. Back trouble can stop you working whether you’re office based or home based. If you’ve made the effort to pick a height adjustable desk, don’t short change yourself with a poor choice in office chair.
Don’t skimp on your home office storage
If you’re starting a new business, begin things as you mean to go on. Setting up your processes and workflows with the right home office storage will help you to be efficient, organised, and professional. The thing to remember when you’re working from home is that it’s easy for work to encroach on the rest of your life. Provide yourself with office storage and filing and you’ll keep your work piles from spreading. Plus a handy desk pedestal will mean you can still store all those pencils, post-it notes, and packets of custard creams without making a mess.
Top tips for ensuring your home office furniture can do its job
Now let’s have a look at how you can make the most of those basics:
Arrange your home office furniture in a way that will reduce interruption and distraction – Don’t place your desk and chair near doors or walk-ways. And don’t, whatever you do, put it anywhere near the TV!
Decorate your workspace to soothe and keep you calm – Paint your walls in a neutral colour, ideally one different to the rest of your house. That way your brain will automatically go into work mode when you sit at your desk each morning.
Make it easy to switch off the light and walk away – At the end of the working day you need to be able to turn your back on your work and focus on achieving work/life balance. Clear your work surfaces. Use your office storage. Tuck your office chair under your desk.
If you choose home office furniture that is functional and comfortable, then you’re well on the way to setting yourself up to enjoying being at your desk every morning.
