Making A Home Office

I’m very lucky with the fact that I work from home. My commute to work is as a roll out of bed, I take a shower and get dressed. Yes, I still get dressed, I don’t work in my PJ's as I still require to feel professional. With this also comes the requirement to have the right environment where I can focus and be productive. So, this post comes from personal experience.


When sitting inHome office furniture a chair at a desk all day, it’s essential to be comfortable. You should choose a seat that can be adapted to your needs (somebody who is 5’4″ will need a different chair from someone who is 6’ tall), keep you satisfied and supports your back properly. If you move about a lot with your seat, you might want to consider one with coasters as they are less likely to scratch your floor than average feet.

Your desk is, of course, the place where it all happens. If you tend to accumulate lots of paperwork, you may want a desk big enough to keep magazine files and containers. You should also have sufficient space for a notepad next to your keyboard /laptop as well as some a plant, picture frames or decorations. It may not seem immediately necessary, but having a pleasant atmosphere will make you feel happier at your desk and supplement your productivity.

Think about storage. You will require somewhere to put files, reference books, ink cartridges, etc. A large shelving arrangement provides the versatility to keep all these things as well as some small plants and ornaments.

Don’t forget to light. A single ceiling light is not sufficient and will cast distracting shadows when you’re busy working. You require a desk lamp, ideally an adjustable one depending on the tasks.

Give it some character. Hang some art, utilise the wall behind your desk to put up a memo board or inspirational wall. Add bursts of colour by using cushions, flowers. Yes it is your office and working space, but it’s also a part of your home and what's the point in working from home if you can’t personalise your workplace?
