After COVID-19, working from home has become a new norm. But many of you are still experiencing nuisance in getting settled and staying focused. You might be thinking – how do you transform the space you used to lounge in into a space where you can spend hours taking care of your business or profession?

Well, it doesn’t take too much time and effort to make helpful changes and turn your home into a productive space. All you need to select the right home office furniture collection for shaping an ideal WFH environment. 

We have put together a few tips for creating an effective and practical WFH setup. So, let’s step ahead.

  1. Create an office space, wherever you’d prefer

It is crucial to maintain some level of normalcy when working remotely. Thus, we emphasise creating a space that feels like you are going to the office in the morning. Even if it’s a small reading nook and desk, a workspace should inspire you to serve dedicatedly and comfortably for prolonged hours.

  1. Make a workspace full of inspiration 

Most people don’t have spare space, but you can easily transform your guest room into a dual-purpose space. An enclosed porch, laundry room, or even a garden shed can do the job. Ideally, you would need a small room that can equip a desk and computer system and of course the space that separates you from home life.

Make a space that you can truly call yours, with a modern chair and table, multi-purpose storage unit, new desk accessories, and some indoor plants. 

  1. Say Goodbye to your old desk chair

If you will be sitting all day long, your wooden kitchen chair can’t do the best job. It’s time to ditch your outdated desk chair and invest in a good, supportive desk chair that won’t leave you feeling achy after a long tedious day. You can also add a cushion to get better comfort and support.

  1. Bring some life into your WFH space

Your memorable pictures, plants, and accessories might be at the office, but you can anytime recreate that vibe in your WFH setup. For doing so, it is good to invest in a storage unit that can accommodate your photos, plants, books, files, candles, and other decorative elements. 

Also, you will need to charge phones, laptops, iPad, headphones, and other devices throughout the day so make sure to invest in a versatile storage unit. It makes it easier to keep your devices organised, charged, and close by.

  1. Don’t Forget Good Lighting

Lighting is often an aspect people don’t pay special attention to. Ideally, you may have enough indirect light to illuminate your workspace to read papers and see tangible objects.  

Overhead lighting is usually ideal, such as from a ceiling lamp. Natural light is also quite pleasant, but you need lamps as an additional source of light to clearly see your monitor screen and brighten up your workspace.

You can easily design an ideal home office using these tips and ideas. And don’t forget to add a pop of colour, paint your walls bright, and your favourite photos and artwork to let your personality and lifestyle shine through.
