Tips for the perfect home office

17th April 2020

We’ve been working from home for a few weeks now, and for a lot of us, the surge of productivity we felt at first (after all, getting away from the office can be a welcome change) is starting to fade somewhat. So if you’re finding that you need to make some changes to your home working environment, here are our tips for creating a home office that helps you really get in the zone. 

1. Tidy Up 

 It may seem cliche, but the old saying, “a messy room makes a messy mind” definitely rings true while working from home. 

Home offices can get messy very quickly, so be sure to make good use of organisational boxes, folders, shelves and cupboards, and practice good cable management so you’re not tripping over chargers and wires. 

Doing something as simple as making sure you put everything away when you’re done with it is an effective way to keep your home office as a place where you can really focus. 

For more tips on decluttering your space, read our previous blog post.

2. Set up your workspace properly

Make sure you have the right furniture to set yourself up for success. A table or desk, with a good quality backed office chair, and an external keyboard and mouse will help you maintain good posture and prevent any injuries while working. 

3. Get enough sunlight

Natural light can help boost your productivity and your mood, so try to set up your home office near a window in a room that gets plenty of sunlight. Just be sure to angle screens away from the window so that the glare doesn’t strain your eyes.

4. Keep distractions away 

A problem that many of us have when working from home is how easily you can be distracted. Set up away from anything, such as the TV, that could distract you from your work.

But don’t just lock yourself away in an empty room! Decorating your desk / office with plants, artwork or other decorative items, and listening to music or the radio will make it a more enjoyable space and help you to feel happy and motivated. 

5. What if I don’t have a home office? 

If you don’t have a dedicated office in your house, try to find a quiet corner, away from busy or loud areas, that you can turn into your office while you’re working from home. Avoid bedrooms or the living room if possible, as these are spaces for relaxation and should be kept separate from your work life. 

Keeping your workspace away from these areas can be very beneficial as it’ll allow you to ‘leave’ work at the end of the day, and properly unwind. 

Hopefully these tips will help you hone your home office and keep you focused. And if you’re searching for your next home, take a look at the current properties we currently have for sale in Honley.
