Creating your Home Office






Planning your office space or work space is not something to rush into, you need to create the most practical and inspiring area that works for you and your work purpose.  Not only your office area and desk in your corner of the busy office but if you have a home office space, you need things around you that inspire productivity and creativity.

From choosing the best space in the house for productive space to choosing the notebook and pen that will take you from meeting to desk and back again, here are our top tips to creating your home office space:-

  • Choose a room that is light and airy and is a nice space you want to spend time in,
  • Choose a desk that works for your purpose, measure carefully to choose the correct desk height that works for you, do ensure the desk is large enough to house all of your needs and necessities,
  • Be comfortable, a hard chair is not going to inspire you to sit and work happily all day long.  Choose a fully adjustable seat; height, back support etc, many back and posture problems are caused by overworking at an uncomfortable desk.
  • Keep items close to hand that you use often; storage shelves or storage drawers below or by your desk are ideal for this purpose, but keep items such as pens in pen pots on your desk and note pads close to hand for ease.
  • If you use tablets and smart phones for note taking or reference then invest in a cover that can be used as a stand for ease of reading while sat at your desk typing or taking notes.
  • Choose a nice storage box where you can keep all messy wires and charges close to hand, you don’t want wires to clutter up your work space.
