Many businesses have a variety of designs for their workspace. Designing your home office is no different but it is more of a challenge because you have a lot more to think about. Here at Lloyd’s cabinetry, we can give you some tips on your home office design for your home to fit your workspace needs.
Location, location, location
You will need to consider the route and traffic your guest or you will go through to get to your home office. Will they be going through the kitchen or living room? Can your office be right next to the front door so that they don’t have to go through your entire home to get to the office? If they do have to go through some of your homes, that will be ok as long as it also compliments other rooms. Ask your professional designers here at Lloyd’s about more designs for exceptional entry way.
Make sure you are not placing your home office in a dark room or in a cold dingy basement. It’s not attractive to your environment and makes working at home not the best idea. Place it somewhere with a nice sized window and a beautiful view. A window’s natural light is ideal and makes working at home more peaceful and relaxing so you can focus on work. If windows aren’t an option for your home office, hang a pretty picture above your desk or position your chair to face the door.
Your home office should serve you and the way you work, not the other way around. Your desk, shelves, and storage should be arranged for easy access and organization. Think about what items can be needed at your fingertips and what can be put away in the cabinets but can also be easily accessed. You want it to be simple yet efficient. Your cabinetry can be customized for your systematic needs and Lloyd’s can devise the perfect cabinets to fit your workspace.
Organize vertically and horizontally. Hang floating shelves on the walls, which is a new way for an efficient design and use vertical file folders on your desk to keep important papers within arm’s reach. Use weave baskets to help organize those office tools to keep your desk area clear of clutter. You can also add in some knickknacks on your horizontal shelves and desk if you prefer.
There are many other designs to think of for your home office. Since most people have cell phones in their pockets, consider adding in charging stations so everyone can have their mobile devices charged. It is very convenient for everyone including your clients that come to visit. If you live in an area where it’s cold or it snows a lot, consider a place to hang coats as well as a drink station. They might want a warm drink to help with the cold weather and this as well gives you a more professional outlook on your clients.
Invest in a really nice comfortable chair. You will be spending hours in your home office and you want to take care of yourself as well. Spending a little extra money on a chair that will work well with your posture can help prevent future problems. Sitting all day can cause a lot of back problems so for some suggestions to give you is a chair with a balance ball. The benefits of this type of chair are the causes with increase in your trunk muscles and core strength as well as posture of course and a decrease in discomfort.
