For many people, working from home has become a daily routine, we’re all familiar with Teams and Zoom, and we rarely have to spend hours in traffic. Working from home certainly has its benefits but it also has its downsides. So how to make the best of a necessity and what are the solutions? Let’s go through the options. Surveys indicate that many people are willing to work from home 1 or 2 days per week, on average, but also that not everyone has a dedicated study of attic room to work undisturbed. The other options are working at your kitchen table or in the living room, and even though this is not often ideal, we can create a workable environment with the right smart and comfortable products. This blog offers tips about how to furnish your workplace at home.
The ideal home office, where you can work undisturbed and close the door after a day’s work. Ergonomics can be given plenty of space here, an electrically adjustable desk and a good office chair; design is perhaps less important. With accessories, you can still make your workplace atmospheric, a nice wastebasket, a beautiful lamp, toolbox and a set of beautiful glasses make it complete. Enjoy your workday at home!
This would be the ideal place to work from home, a room where you work during the day and simply close the door behind you when you’re done. The ergonomic aspects of the workspace, such as an adjustable desk and a good desk chair are easily realised and the design may come second place. You can add some nice accessories like a nice wastebasket, a beautiful lamp, a toolbox, and a set of beautiful glasses to create a homely atmosphere. Enjoy your workday at home!
The kitchen table
Perhaps not the most ideal spot to work undisturbed, but you are working in the heart of your home, close to your family. An acoustic or another screen around you or your laptop can increase your ability to focus and be less distracted. A toolbox with a laptop stand, combined with a separate keyboard, a mouse, and an adjustable chair can ensure the right work posture. Use a trolley to store away your office supplies by the end of the day and/or hang up an organiser on the wall.
The living room
The Homefit is an electrically adjustable desk that is hidden away in a cupboard when you don’t use it. Your laptop can be stored away in the cupboard. Just open the doors, raise the worktop and adjust the height, and you’re ready to go.
The toolbox stores your office supplies and a table lamp and a beautiful clock go on top of the cupboard. If you and your laptop want to move to the couch to finish up some final things, then you can get the Nestable laptop table. Put a pillow behind your back, have a reading light next to you, and you’re all set.
The attic room
Away from everything and everyone, your own work cave. You have space for your desk and chair. Create a comfortable atmosphere with a lamp and some nice accessories. Working doesn’t have to be boring on the TipTop “wobbly chair” or the adjustable UPis1 stool as sitting still never was your thing.
If you have been working from home for a longer time, you may start to miss the social office chats and you go from one online meeting into the next “call”. You also get less physical exercise during the day and the line between work and private life often starts to blur. As we work from home more and more, and as this situation is likely to remain in the future, it is wise to invest in a proper workspace at home. Employers often reserve a budget to help their employees. Apart from assisting removals and the execution of refurbishment projects, Sprank Interieurprojecten also supplies furniture.
