    Setting Up Your First Home Office

    Just a Few Tips…

    Working from home is not a new concept, but recent events have created a mass shift in the
    American workforce and more people than ever before are working from home. While simply
    placing a laptop on the kitchen table is one way to work from home, having a designated
    home office offers a better environment for productivity and is easier to set up than you might
    think.

    • The first step is to find the right location for your home office. Although it’s great if you
    have a spare room to use, not everyone has this luxury. A corner of a master bedroom
    or living room, a loft area, or even a section of a well-insulated garage can work just as
    well.

    • Once you find the right space, create a list of the materials you’ll need to be productive.
    A formal desk is best, but if you don’t own one, then any table will work. Use
    bookshelves or storage cubes to keep paper, pens, and other useful items within easy
    reach.

    • Pay attention to the lighting – both natural light and lighting fixtures. Cool light, such as
    sunlight, is best for productivity. Make sure you have a desk lamp or floor lamp if the
    room doesn’t have proper natural lighting.

    • Once you have the essentials set up, it’s time to add some personal touches. Add a plant
    or decorate a wall with pictures you enjoy, to bring the space to life. Consider the
    storage elements as well, such as pen holders or file folders.

    A home office doesn’t need to be fancy to be an effective and enjoyable space. The most
    important consideration is to ensure you can work in peace; it should also offer a pleasant
    place to be productive that is separate from your living space so you can unplug at the end of
    the workday.
