Creating the perfect work from home office

Creating the perfect work from home office

With so many people working from home these days, it is a good idea to have a dedicated space in your home for this. This does not have to be an entire room, but it could just be a small corner of the living room or dining room, that you can use to work in peace.

Choosing furniture

If you do have a room for your office then you can opt for a larger desk if you need one, but it is recommended that you have a seating area where you can relax in between meetings and calls. Even a small sofa will help to make the office feel very homely. Cover with an Ikea sofa cover that is easy to wash and care for. These are available in different styles and fabrics and can be styled to fit with the rest of your home.

If you do not have a dedicated room for your work at home space then you need to choose your office furniture wisely so it does not encroach too much into the family living space. A tall desk unit will provide storage for your computer and other equipment and books.

Where possible it is recommended to store any computer hardware or peripherals such as printers in cupboards. This will help to keep your workspace clear and free of clutter and will ensure that your workspace does not encroach on the rest of the house. Get into the habit of putting everything away at the end of the day to keep it a warm and welcoming space.
