How to Make the Perfect Home Office


In the last few years, home working has become the norm for many employees around the world. A key factor in this transition, has been the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, which made home working a requirement rather than a choice, for millions of employees. Research suggests that working from home is here to stay, with 20% of full time working days to be completed from home for the foreseeable future. For many people, working from home is a blessing, as it allows them to dramatically reduce their time spent travelling, and can help them gain more control over their work-life balance.

If home working is part of your new routine, whether it is fully remote or hybrid, you will need a comfortable home office that allows you to focus. This article explains three key ways in which you can create the perfect home office.

Pick the Right Room


The first consideration in planning any home office, is where it will be located in your home. Ideally, you will be able to convert a spare room into your home office. This tends to be the best solution as you will have a dedicated space for your working world, and it will be easier to work without distractions. However, this will not be an option for everyone, as many people will not have the luxury of being able to convert a room into a dedicated home office.

The key is to find a spot in your home that tends to be quiet for most of the day, whilst providing enough space to work comfortably. Constant interruptions during working hours are less than ideal and make focusing on important tasks incredibly difficult - as a result, working from the kitchen or living room, is likely to be less practical than from the master bedroom.

Comfortable and Clear of Clutter


Once you have decided on the location of your home office, it is time to start planning the layout of it. The two factors of prime importance here, are being able to work in comfort (especially as you will be sitting for extended periods of time) and keeping your home office free from clutter, to aid concentration and productivity.

When it comes to comfort for your home office, one of the key pieces of furniture, is your office chair. Cheap plastic seats will simply not suffice. You will be sitting for up to eight hours a day on your chair, so it needs to be of high quality, with a good level of support for your back, to minimize the risk of repetitive strain injury. Choose a modern high quality chair from a company such as ligne-roset-hampstead.co.uk, to ensure you get both a comfortable and stylish design that will last for years to come.

Lighting is Key


As a last point, it is worth considering the importance of effective lighting in your working space. Wherever possible, pick a space that benefits from natural light, as this helps your body produce vitamin D and is good for your overall health. If you cannot use such a location in your home, the next best option, is to choose natural light lightbulbs that mimic the effect of sunlight. These are available in many stores, and by choosing LED bulbs, you will also save money over time, due to their improved efficiency and longevity, when compared to conventional filament bulbs.
