All over the world, people are working from home more than ever before, spending long hours writing emails at their computer desks in whatever kind of home office they’re able to set up. Whether you’re a top executive or busy student, our new reality means it’s more important than ever to design an office space that’s comfortable, functional, and conducive to productivity — even if you don’t have a dedicated room to work with.
DHP has some great designs to make your dream workstation a reality, including multifunctional shelving and wood storage units with drawers that can replace the need for bulky filing cabinets. We’ll also help you complete your setup with some ergonomically designed chairs that nicely complement any table or L-shaped desk.
So what other tips should you keep in mind when designing your home office? Try to bring in as much natural light as possible. Nearby windows and indoor plants that bring the outdoors inside can provide a much needed mood booster throughout the day. It also really helps if you can create a sense of privacy in your office space — even if you’re working out of a shared corner of your living room. Portable screens and divider walls are a cheap way to replicate the feel of a private office — and even a simple area rug can help anchor your workspace, so it feels like its own room within a room.
Our last suggestion: whatever you do, try as much as possible to keep work out of the bedroom! As tempting as it is to work on your laptop from bed, we promise you’ll feel much more productive (and relaxed afterwards) if you keep certain spaces free from the 9-to-5 noise.
