How to Create a Functional and Stylish Home Office Space

Remote working is an industry trend that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Companies and employees prefer it because it’s a money and time-saving option. And as we have all learned from the pandemic, it cuts down on the spread of germs. 

But the working-from-home trend comes with one major challenge. It causes many workers to have to design a home office for themselves. This can be difficult if you don’t have a pre-existing den in your residence. 

Fortunately, there are things you can do to create a home office in just about any space in your home. This article will provide some valuable tips and tricks. 

Get a Desk- or Make One

A desk is a home office essential. If you don’t have one you can use, you can always make one from a plank of wood. Or you can buy one from a second-hand shop and fix it, so it looks new. Consider using the space under the desk for storage if you are working with a small area.  

Consider Ergonomics

Many people become injured because they are forced into an unhealthy position when viewing their computers. Make sure your computer is placed at a good eye level. You should not need to hunch over or look up to see the screen. The keyboard placement should allow your arms and hands to fall at a comfortable angle. 

Have Good Lighting

Good lighting is essential in an office setting, and it’s great if your office gets in natural light. Task lighting, such as small clamp-on lights, is an ideal complement as it can be adjusted to provide illumination as needed.  

Invest in Cords

Once you start setting up, you will realize that you can never have enough cords. You will need cords for your computer, your devices, and all the extra gadgets you require. To stay organized, set them up in your desk space with a USB hub for everything you plug into. This will help you set up and break down quickly. Clip the cords along the walls to keep them neat and prevent a tripping hazard. 

Build Up

You may not have a lot of floor space in your office, but you likely have wall and ceiling space available. Make the most of this ‘high-up’ real estate by using pegs, hooks, and even a pegboard to hang things like headphones, glasses, and memos. 

It’s also advisable to install shelves and cabinets for additional storage. These can hold office supplies, snacks, coffee mugs, and just about anything else you might require.
