Even though the pandemic is slowly coming to an end, working from home is something that is here to stay. That is mainly because working from home comes with so many different benefits and not having to go into the office is possibly the biggest one. But even though a lot of people are in love with this lifestyle that working from home provides, for some, it just doesn't work well, especially if the conditions at home are not good for working. If you are working from home, here is how you can make an office that you love and feel productive in.

Choosing the Space

In most cases, people will have to get creative when it comes to making a dedicated office space in their homes. There are so many options such as transforming your closet into an office or a quiet corner of your home. If there is a possibility to always choose to be near a window, having a nice view does wonders for your stress levels and productivity. Always try to choose a space that doesn't have a lot of foot traffic and peace and quiet. This is one of the most important things and something that will make you love your home office, therefore be more productive during your work hours. 

Plan What You Need

Something that will make or break your whole working from home experience is the supplies that you have at home. You need to have all the needed supplies that will allow you to work as efficiently and comfortably from home as possible. Make sure that you have a popper light and that it is not too warm or too cold, you should have all the devices that you need for work as well as things like planners, papers, pens… Another thing that plays a big part when you are working from home is a fast and stable internet connection. Make sure that you are contacting your provider and ensuring that you have the best package you can afford.

Add Some Plants

One of the best and simplest ways to turn your home office into a space that you love is by adding plans to the room. It is not only going to make it more relaxing, but it will also block out some of the noise as well as act as a natural air purifier. Always choose ones that will thrive in conditions that you have in that space so you ensure that they are as pretty as possible.

Get Soundproof Curtains

If you don't live alone, the chances are that you are working in a noisy space, or even if you live alone in a quiet household, your neighbourhood might be loud. The best way you can prevent being distracted and irritated by the noise is by getting soundproof curtains. When you make a combination of them with some plants you will be able to have a space that is quiet so you can focus.

Invest in a Good Quality Chair

A lot of people when they are working from home are usually working overtime and more than they need to. With that being said, you need to make sure that you are investing in a chair that is healthy for your back and comparable. If you are constantly fidgeting and feeling uncomfortable or even worse, feeling pain in your back and neck, it is a sign that you need to invest in a high-quality chair. On top of that, if you have carpets at home, if you are choosing a chair that has wheels you are probably going to ruin the carpet by constantly rolling over it. That is why you also need to get a chair mat carpet protector to keep the carpets intact.

Pay Attention To Your Lighting

When you are working from home you need to ensure that you have proper lighting in the room that you were working in. That is really important if you want to reduce eye strain. It is best that you have lighting installed on the table that you are working on as well as behind you so you don't create a glare on your screen. If it is possible, you should also let in as much natural light as you can. Natural sunlight will make you less stressed and more productive.

Add Some Colour

In order to make your space more inviting, you should add some personal touches to it. Adding colour will add more life to the room or corner that you are working in. But when you are choosing touches of colours that you will put in your space, make sure that you are choosing ones that promote positive feelings. Make sure that you are looking into colour theory before committing to colours for your space. If you have the chance, a great way to personalise your workspace is to add an accent wall.

Clear Your Home Office of Clutter

When you are surrounded by clutter, your mind won't be able to think clearly. The simplest thing that you can do to fall in love with your home office is to declutter. Even if you like to have little bits and bobs, having a more minimalist and neat work area will help with your productivity levels as you will be able to focus on the tasks and not get distracted. Utilise all of the dowsers and holders that you have in your house. Having a nicely organised workspace will motivate you to work harder and it will make it easier to spend time in a space that you actually like.

As you can see, setting up a home office that you will actually love doesn't have to be a stressful thing. Your goal is to create a home office space where you will be just as productive as in a normal office. Don't be afraid to experiment and try different things until you find a setup that works best for you.
