Are you in the process of transitioning to more time spent at home in your home office? Perhaps you are splitting your time between the company headquarters/office and your own home. This has become a common trend in the past couple of years and has led to an increase in home office improvements. If you’re ready to make the investment and take time on improvements, here are four great ways to design a comfortable and productive home office.

4 Tips for Designing a Comfortable and Productive Home Office

  • Choose a Space with Natural Light

If you’re fortunate enough to have a choice in terms of where you set up your home office, choosing a spot that has natural light is an excellent option. Natural light doesn’t just serve a practical purpose; it also helps to boost your mood, energize you and help you to focus that much better. In a nutshell, natural light helps you to be more productive. Because the weather won’t always be sunny and beautiful, you will also need some other type of lighting such as overhead or task lighting.

  • Think Outside the Box with Furniture

A staple in any home office environment is a desk and chair that allow you to work productively and comfortably. And while that shouldn’t be sacrificed, why not add another level of comfort and personality to your home office space as you don’t always have to sit at your desk to get your work done? Why not create a comfortable corner in your office that allows you to feel less confined and formal in the space? You can use a laptop or Chromebook while sitting in something unexpected like these lounger bean bag chairs from Comfy Sacks. It won’t feel like the typical office environment, but that can be great not just for your comfort but your creativity level.

  • Set Up a Coffee Station

Those who enjoy a steaming cup of coffee while they work may want to set up a coffee station close to their desk. This is especially true if your home office isn’t near the kitchen. Creating a small coffee station also cuts down on distractions since you don’t have to leave the office space and risk getting side-tracked. The coffee station can house a single-brew coffee maker, all the necessary coffee, and even a small bar fridge for cream and milk.

  • Privacy Is a Must

Another important aspect when creating a comfortable home office is privacy. Privacy will make the space feel more professional and allow you to concentrate without interruptions from kids, pets, and/or your significant other. It creates a sense of true and professional office space. For those who don’t have a self-contained office, you can use design tools like tall bookcases, a privacy screen, furniture, or other items that create a makeshift wall.

All of these tips will help you to design a home office that is comfortable enough that you want to spend time in it, which means you’re going to be productive.
