The start of a new year often means a commitment to eliminating clutter and getting organized at home. Here are some ways your home office can do a better job of making your life easier and more efficient.
Just like any successful work project, designing your home office requires deliberate planning. Think about how you will spend time in the space and what your typical workflow is before you invest in a floor plan and furniture.
Lighting is essential in a home office, from natural light to task lighting, to keep a clear head and spirit. Position your work area to take advantage of natural light and views while protecting your computer screen from glare. Avoid positioning your screen directly in front of a light source, as this can lead to eyestrain and headaches.
A productive and pleasant work atmosphere starts with a lack of clutter in a room design that makes it easy to find what you need when you need it. Staying organized requires levels of storage; remember to organize vertically as well as horizontally to make the most efficient use of your space.
Above all, your home office should feel like a natural part of your home and not a sterile add-on. A design integrated with the overall aesthetic of your home will make your office feel more welcoming and appealing. Adding a few personal touches to the design, such as mementos and photos, keeps the home office feeling like a desirable space to stay and be productive.
