Whether operating from a dedicated office room or a blended workspace, there are some essential tips and tricks for avoiding distraction and procrastination at home. The team at Closet & Storage Concepts are experts in custom home office design, and we can help you craft a home workspace that keeps you feeling clear-headed and productive.
The first step in ensuring you have a private and productive office is managing noise levels. Consider placing your office in a less-used part of your home. If people are constantly coming and going, it can interrupt your flow of thoughts. Ideally, you should keep your office further away from loud rooms – particularly televisions and play spaces. If you feel like you can’t escape noise no matter what, investing in a good pair of noise-cancelling headphones is one solution to consider.
A cluttered workspace often leads to a cluttered mind. To ensure productivity, first take the time to organize your belongings. It’s fine to leave a personal touch here and there, but everything should eventually have its own place; pens, papers, tools, and cords all organized and easy to find.
Light & Air Flow
A well-lit and well-ventilated area can make major improvements to overall productivity. When working from a space that feels stuffy or dark, your mind can start to feel bogged down and uncreative. We recommend finding a spot for your home office that has natural light and good airflow – for example, any room with windows that open. If this isn’t possible, a portable fan and plenty of lighting offer an easier fix. Plants are also an excellent addition to your home office – not only do they brighten the area and add color, but they can also help purify the air.
Consider The Essential Components of Your Office
What do you truly need to create your ideal work-at-home space? Taking time to get the essential components just right will help your entire office function better. A custom-built desk, storage space, and filing cabinets will ensure your office meets all your needs. It’s also crucial to ensure that you have all the right resources: a monitor, computer, printer, and high-speed internet connection.
