How can you make the most of your working day with a home office? If the past few months have taught us anything, it’s that the landscape of work is changing, and that the option of working from home is slowly becoming the new normal.
With that in mind, setting up your laptop at the dining room table or your bedroom dresser might not cut it anymore. Whether you’re a senior manager enjoying your company’s flexible new approach to working hours, or you’re thinking of starting your own business, here our top four reasons why a dedicated home office workspace can work for you.
1. Feel like you’re really at work
You can’t do Zoom meetings in bed forever, and while the appeal of working from your bedroom might have felt novel at first, it doesn’t get you in the right mindset to start work. Having a dedicated home office makes you feel like you’re going to work, even if the commute is just a walk down the hall. Plus, if you need to host meetings, personal or virtual, a separate office space is far more professional and accessible.
Creating the right space to get yourself organised and ready to work is beneficial to your mental wellbeing and sense of productivity.
2. Be more productive
Studies have shown that working from a home office makes people more productive. With less time fretting about their commute, picking out appropriate work attire, and packing lunches, people have more time to mentally get ready for the day. Home comforts, like visit from your dog or a cup of tea in the garden give your wellbeing a big boost.
Adding a home office that faces the garden is a perfect idea for anyone inspired by green spaces.
3. Define home and work
Setting up shop in the living room might seem like a great idea, but before you know it, your checking emails in bed and finishing up reports at the dinner table. Having a dedicated home office workspace allows you define the boundaries between home and office.
One of the greatest advantages of working from home is the flexibility to work around the needs of your family. No more commute means you can log off at 5pm and you’re already home. Avoid working overtime by keeping your home office its own space.
4. Create your own home office space
The best part of your home office is that it’s yours. However you like to work, you can build your workspace to suit you. No more assigned seating or looking at windowless cubicle walls, you can create a space that allows you to feel more relaxed and more productive. Whether you work best perched in the sunlight or with three computer screens, it’s your call.
If you’re considering adding a single-story extension to your house to use as a home office workspace you can literally build your ideal workspace from scratch.
