Ensuring that you have the right working environment in your home office can be instrumental in determining whether you will be able to happily make the transition to remote work. Here are some suggestions for rethinking your home office when repurposing it into a full-time workplace.
Do not underestimate the power of the appropriate furniture. Having a desk of the appropriate height that is easy to organize can help reduce clutter and make for a more comfortable workday. Having the right kind of chair that provides proper back support and the right range or movement will make a big difference. Proper shelving can assist with organization and provide easy access to important items. Desk Organizers can also help declutter a home office and get it ready for full-time use, consolidating useful items and helping clear your desk and drawers of useless clutter.
If it is possible, turning your home office into a dedicated workspace can help maintain a sense of work-life balance. By keeping entertainment and personal time out of that workspace it can help you disconnect at the end of the workday and ensure that you do not feel like you are always on the clock. If you have access to a second computer or laptop it may even be worth transferring all personal files and apps to one machine and making the other a dedicated work machine, allowing you to avoid distractions and again maintain that work/life separation.
