Whether you’ve been a work-from-home warrior for some time or it’s new for you, a well-designed home workspace can make or break your day.
In fact, a frequently updated and creative space can help keep you inspired and alert, just to name of few of the potential benefits. So, in this article, we’ll outline 5 ideas to refresh your office and make your space work for you.
First and foremost, do your best to reduce clutter on your desk at all times. Without a clean desk, distractions can run rampant, reducing your focus. Instead, use a filing system on your desk or really bulk up your storage capability with a file cabinet, which will give you room to store your basics plus organize your paperwork.
Create a Mood
You may not think that aesthetics matter, but a few simple, visual changes can really brighten your day. Pick up some fresh flowers every week or a candle to lighten the mood. Or an aroma diffuser with essential oils can help. Also, a desk lamp is a great way to create a cozy vibe. Our LED Task Lamp, which has a warm light setting and wireless charger, is a great addition to any desk.
Your home office is where you can really get creative with your surroundings. Whether you opt for wall art or paint a wall, either can lift your spirit. Color is especially meaningful because it can impact your mood, feeling, and behavior. In fact, certain colors can reportedly affect your blood pressure, heart rate, and alertness.
Add Indoor Plants
With as much time as we’ve been indoors lately, it might be a good idea to bring the outdoors inside your home in the form of biophilia, which is defined as a connection to nature. By adding plants to your workspace, a multitude of benefits are realized, including stress reduction and increased productivity.
Evaluate Your Furniture
Last but not least, evaluate your office furniture. Are you using a table designed for meals as a makeshift desk? Or have you stacked some books and elevated your monitor so that you can stand part of the day? If so, it’s time to consider a standing desk converter or a sit-stand desk, which can elevate your productivity, creativity, and mood.
Your chair, too, is equally important. If your office chair is showing signs of wear, like a flattened seat cushion or worn armrests, it’s time for a new chair. Or maybe you’re using a kitchen chair all day when it was designed to be used for short periods of time. Either way, give our Task Chair with Headrest a try and make your day uber comfortable while you work.
Whether you decide to take charge by painting a wall or you opt for some simple flowers, you’ll notice that a refreshed space is a creative and productive one. Also, be sure to apply some basic principles to your day when working from home so that you don’t burn yourself out. Combine healthy habits with an inspiring workspace and you’ve got the recipe for an optimized home office.
