A work-from-home arrangement has become a necessity for many employees this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While some are content to set up shop in a corner of the kitchen or bedroom, others would prefer to convert a seldom-used room into an organized and comfortable workspace. The second choice is generally recommended because it makes it easier to create a healthy boundary between your work life and your home life.
In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen® of Austin, your local source of custom windows, shares design tips for your dedicated workspace.
Carve Out a Space
For many people, working in a quiet, peaceful setting is important. Pick a space where you can work without distractions. Consider repurposing or reconfiguring a spare room. If you’ll be receiving clients now and then, make sure to invest in adequate seating.
Let Natural Light In
Artificial lighting is essential for your home office, especially if you are working late into the night. However, natural light is also important, offering many health benefits. Windows help flood your space with refreshing natural light, making the home office look and feel bigger and brighter. Plus, sunlight plays a role in boosting your productivity by improving mood levels.
Bring Color to the Interior
Consider repainting your office space to rejuvenate the area. Choose hues that can help uplift your mood and motivate you to get going. Greens and blues give a calm and soothing feeling, while reds and oranges bring a bright, cheery effect.
