Create Home Workspace - Laffey Real Estate

If you've suddenly found yourself among the many remote workers around the country, you can easily create brilliant work-friendly spaces from a spare corner, a few feet of wall, or even in your basement. To help you create a dedicated workspace that is welcoming, smart, and functional, our real estate agents recommend the following tips:

  1. Ensure Comfortable Seating
    Comfortable seating doesn't mean bringing in a sofa, beanbag chair, or other furniture that can make you dose off. Simply get a decent office chair that you can comfortably sit on for a few hours. An ergonomically designed chair with back support will help promote good posture and keep you comfortable and fully alert.

  2. Don't forget function!
    When you settle down to work from your home office, nothing can be more distracting than poor lighting or a creaking ceiling fan. While a desk lighting fixture can sort out your lighting issues, it's a good idea to opt for a fixture that solves both lightning and cooling problems at the same time. For example, you could purchase a tech-savvy ceiling fan that allows you to adjust the light temperature. This will help the fan operate silently while keeping you cool and comfortable.

    With a dimmable remote system, you can seamlessly adjust the light temperature to suit your eyes, using warm lighting during the night and cool lighting to psyche you up in the morning. Such little details will help you avoid distractions and create a more productive work environment.

  3. Include Simple Exercise Equipment
    Your home office shouldn't necessarily double up as a home fitness center. Bringing in a treadmill, rowing machine, or bike is probably going overboard in an office space. However, having a few free weights, dumbbells, or a yoga mat can help you stay active and keep your blood flowing after several hours sitting at the desk. Moreover, you can use these items to reward yourself with little breaks and fend off fatigue or drowsiness.

  4. Be Smart About Layout
    How you arrange your home office plays a critical role in the overall functionality of the workstation. Ideally, you'll want to place your desk facing the window to give you a great view and away from the door to reduce distractions from other rooms in the home. Have adequate shelving and storage spaces to help you organize your office items properly. You should make critical items such as the scanner, printer, or office supplies readily accessible from your desk. Cords and wires should also be properly organized and kept out of sight.

A well-designed home office will make you much more productive while ensuring that the space is comfortable and enjoyable. If you have any questions about home office spaces and how to create one in your home, contact us today! Our friendly real estate agents will be more than glad to guide you through.
