Consider Backgrounds for Video Conferencing

If you’re working from home and will be meeting with people regularly from clients to co-workers, consider your background. You want to create a professional atmosphere. It’s especially important to keep your space tidy and free of clutter. Try to choose a spot where your background will be free of distracting movement and noises.

Give it a try: Stage your background so it looks professional yet fun. Built-ins and shelves are a great way to create a professional background that is functional and fun. Many video platforms and creators also offer unique backgrounds that you can digitally apply if you’re looking to prevent distractions on video calls.

Small Office Areas & Custom Desks

With more people working from home, it can be a challenge to create multiple workspace for multiple in your family. However, there are some options you may not have thought of to create more spaces in your home.

Give it a try: Consider an office nook or closet. This is a great way to have separate workspaces without needing another bedroom. Closet & Storage Concepts of Philadelphia is the perfect partner to create custom desks and office storage solutions for all members of your family.

Consider Downtime & Extra Function

A home office can be more than a place to work. Consider using multi-functional furniture and creating multiple for relaxing or completing hobbies. Use your home office for reading, lounging, crafting, or other pastimes.

Give it a try: Add cozy elements with a small reading nook, or a comfy couch. A couch or small seating area can double up as another potential workstation that can break up your day. If you find furry friends comforting, built-in cabinets can keep pet beds or kennels close by. Offices are also a great place to add storage for hobbies from paper crafts to board games.
