How to Create the Perfect at-home Office

Many jobs nowadays require us to do a little bit of work from home. Unfortunately we aren’t all blessed to live in a large house with a dedicated study or office. However there are steps you can take to create an efficient and ideal home office space.

1. Consider the Space

Home offices have the ability to serve for a variety of purposes. Think about and consider what it is you’d like to do with your office space. Keep functionality at the forefront of your mind- are you going to be inviting clients? Do you need the bare basics of an office? Your layout and features will need to mirror this.

Of course, things can be changed in the future, but it’s better to think ahead. If you’re just beginning your home office journey, it might be worth preparing your office in advance in order to avoid any last-minute stress! Our meeting room desks are perfect for large home offices, especially if you’re interested in hosting client meetups too.

2. Equipment is Key

The right office equipment can save time, money and boost productivity. A PC or laptop that runs efficiently may be slightly more expensive, but the amount of work that is completed because of this means you’ll be reaping the rewards in no time.

Offices need to be practical, so why not consider purchasing a phone with conference-call abilities and wireless internet? The right office furniture also has huge importance. In fact, we wrote an entire blog post on this which you can read here.

3. Think about Privacy

Maintaining a boundary between home and work life can be difficult. Ensuring your office is away from any homely temptations is a great way to work through this. If possible, your office space should be its own room away from any communal areas of the home.

Your office needs to be as similar to normal work life as possible to avoid getting out of a routine. You may be working from home, but continue waking up early, suiting up for work and venturing to your office- you’ll be surprised how much work you get done when you’re still in that frame of mind!

Here at The Essex Group, we have a range of fantastic office and home furniture perfect for anyone deciding to work from home. We’ve got the ideal computer chairs and desking available on our website to help get you started.
