Ways to create the perfect home office

Working from home may sound like an easy thing to do, however, for those who are adopting this lifestyle for the first time it can be a little challenging. It’s important to create a space that will increase productivity and enhance your well-being for the long-term.

1. Finding the perfect workspace

If you’re looking for an area to set up your home office, one of the first things to take into consideration is the light source. Having plenty of natural light can increase productivity and reduce fatigue. It’s also important to create a distinct workspace so that you can separate work from infringing upon your personal life.

For those who have a smaller footprint at home or have the need to create multiple workstations, for when there is more than one of you, opt for a nook in the house that is quiet and away from high-traffic areas to prevent distraction. A simple arrangement of your living room can also carve out an extra area to work in. By placing your sofa against the longest wall, you’ll be able to open up more real estate in the centre of the room, allowing you to set up a desk either directly in front of the window or next to it.


2. Invest in the perfect desk

Once you have allocated an area, take stock of the amount of space you need to set up your workstation. This will inform your decisions around the style of furniture you’ll require. When deciding upon your perfect desk, ensure it is small enough to remain discreet yet large enough to accommodate everything for your work. King Living’s award-winning Eto Desk is a great option for your home office as it is sleek and sophisticated, with an option to include a wireless charging table and LED lighting to enhance your work experience. It is available in one of three timber finishes to suit your personal style and is constructed around an aluminium frame that is just as durable as it is beautiful.

The key to a productive work environment is the removal of unnecessary clutter. Investing in a good bookcase like the Dainelli Libreria Bookcase is also a great way to store your books and files and can also be used to display your favourite items. Organising your work items into the individual compartments of the bookcase ensures everything has a place to come back to.
