Get Ready to Work and Roll
HAVE A DEDICATED WORKSPACE
When working from home, separation is key. While it’s very tempting to spend the workday on your couch or bed, it’s important to create separation.
Have a designated space where you relax versus work. This will make it easier to maintain a healthy work-life balance and set boundaries around your work time and your “you” time.
This can be as simple as a corner in a living area, or you can take advantage of that extra room
you’ve been using for storage.
MAKE IT YOUR OWN
Contrary to popular belief, you can still be cozy while working from a desk. Your home office can multi-task — it can be comfort-forward and function-forward.
Make it somewhat like your comfy-cozy sanctuary — with mood lighting, plush seating and a blanket or two (just in case you get a little cold). Don’t forget to turn on some instrumental music for added focus.
ADD PERSONALITY WITH DECORATIVE ITEMS
Styling your home office with decor may be an afterthought compared to the rest of your house. Whether working from home part-time or full-time, creating a space full of personality and interesting details will only fuel your inspiration and make for more productive, energized workdays.
It’s important to choose pieces that truly speak to you — like your favorite artwork or small mementos. You may even fi nd yourself looking forward to spending time in your new workspace.
FILL IT WITH FLORALS AND GREENERY
A great way to refresh your home o ce is by bringing the outdoors inside. It’s really unbelievable how something as minuscule as a vase full of fl owers or a row of window-side succulents can be a catalyst for renewed vision. It will bring your home office to life!
GET SOME AESTHETICALLY PLEASING OFFICE SUPPLIES
The days of yellow legal pads are over. Colorful calendars, sparkly gel pens and neon post-its are making a comeback.
While practicality is the most important thing, getting desk accessories that fi t your personality will make your day a little easier. Just make sure they mesh with the room’s decor!
FINISH IT OFF WITH A DESK ORGANIZER
With any office space, less is always more. But sometimes, you can’t avoid accumulating things — even when it comes to a home office. Most of us have an endless supply of writing utensils, not to mention the charging cord situation that always gets out of control.
More often than not though, this clutter can lead to distraction throughout the workday. Desk organizers have multiple compartments to keep all your stu nice and tidy. No home office is
complete without certain accessories that are essential for work. Just make sure everything is in its place!
