With many of us now working from home, we’ve had to makeshift office space on the fly, whether it’s on the corner of the dining room table, a nook in a spare bedroom or even out on the patio. But with at-home work becoming more of a permanent structure, taking some time to create the perfect home office is important so you can eliminate distractions and get work done. Here are some key points to remember when creating space for your business at home.

Find the Right Location
The most important step for creating a home office is choosing the right spot. Since you will likely be spending hours there each day, you want to ensure it’s as comfortable and quiet as possible. So choose wisely.

Consider Workflow and What You Need
Your home office space should work for you. Before you jump into the layout of it, think about your workflow, and what you need to optimize functionality and efficiency. Your desk, shelving, furniture and any storage units should serve specific purposes based on your needs.

Don’t Skimp on Your Office Chair
You’re going to be spending lots of time in your chair, so make sure it’s a comfy one. This is one investment that’s well worth it, so shop around to find one that’s ergonomically correct for you, works well with your decor and above all, offers full-body support. 

Add Some Colour to Your Home Office
Working in a space that resembles a bleak-looking office cubicle isn’t going to help motivate or inspire you to get down to business. The design and colour can drastically impact your mood and creativity. So don’t be shy with your design. If your home office is in a spare room, choose a colour that you love and that will help get your creative juices flowing.

Position Your Desk with a View
No one wants to stare at a blank wall all day. It’s depressing and unmotivating. If you have a window, take advantage of it by positioning your desk close to it so when your eyes need a little break, you have something interesting and soothing to look at. If you don’t have a window, hang a mirror or your favourite piece of artwork.
