Let‘s face it, nowadays almost everyone of us spend most of the time working next to the computer. We wake up every morning and march to our offices. But there is also possibilty to work at home, where you can create your own private workplace. Ofcourse you might be facing some problems doing that, but actually adding an office to a home is possible, no matter the size of your house or living situation. Here are some things to consider for a successful home office space.
First of all you need to think about the place where you want to work. If you don‘t have a separate room or maybe your small apartment is already full, you have to Identify an underused part of your home to use. For example, consider converting a closet into an office, like in Fitzroy Apartments in in Melbourne.
Work desk is also very important. Assess the space that you have and determine the size of the desk that will best work with that space. Remember that, whether it be a large desk, a small alternative or a shelf that acts as a desk it may affect not only your working atmosphere but also your health. And don‘t forget about comfortable chair that you will be able to sit in for hours to get work done.
You may also face with a storage problem tand it may affect you productivity. If your work requires to store a lot of paper, consider vertical files to organize and keep it all at arm’s reach. If you don’t have drawers, make your own by making your own desk by adding a board above two cabinets. You can make your space feel even more clean and organized by hiding all the cords that may get in the way.
Don‘t forget about the lighting for your desk area. It‘s perfect if your desk is near by the window, you can see it in RK apartment , but if it‘s not you can always use table or pendant lights just like Norm Architects did in this project. It may even become the main accent of your home office interior.
Now you just need to accessorize your desk. Personalize your work space with things that make you happy and motivated! Only surrounded by things that gives you joy you can feel the pleasures of home office.
