Ways to create a happier workspace at home

by Charles Carter on

We live in interesting times and the reality is that more and more of us are working from home. Our home always helps, it is our fortress and it is good to adapt it to the current conditions, so that it is more comfortable and pleasant for us while working from home. Whatever challenge comes, the world keeps going.

Here are some key ways to consider to make working from home better, more enjoyable and of course, more efficient.

It is very important to choose the most comfortable office chair. It's worth investing in a good chair to save yourself backaches later.

It is also important to designate a sufficient workplace for you to place all your essentials and not get distracted easily.

The pandemic has caused some of us to work from the kitchen table with the laptop, and when you add kids learning from home, the chaos is on another level and you can never get as much work done as you would like. Take back control and allocate a working space for you so that you don’t get distracted by the kids coming home from school. If you have a spare room that's quiet and provides peace of mind for a meeting, a phone call, or just more serious work that requires concentration; this is the ideal space for you when working from home. Consider getting yourself a big enough desk for everything you need to avoid getting up constantly to fetch essentials you need during the day.

Now that we have the important key factors out of the way we can focus on the smaller things that will make working from home an enjoyable experience for you.

Temperature, air movement, ventilation - the optimal working temperature is considered to be 22 degrees, although it is a matter of personal preference. At home, we have more control over this factor.

Noise and vibrations - unfortunately, when it comes to working from home there are some things that you cannot change. For example if you have noisy neighbours, someone is constantly repairing, and you have a conference call it can be very distracting. The difference is that in offices, special attention is paid to sound insulation - it is not by chance that thick carpets are used, some have additional sound-insulating panels. A thick carpet and curtains would go some way to absorb the unwanted noises.

Lighting - at home we have more control over lighting. It is good for provide yourself with a natural light in your workspace so that it is not blaring and annoying your eyes all day, also, it is important to have a desk lamp to ensure the perfect amount of light over any paperwork!

Colour – generally light and neutral colours are preferred in offices and the office is branded according to the trademark colours. Green and neutral colours are very suitable for a home office as green is both invigorating and calming. In fact, it's more important what your favourite colours are - surround yourself with them, let it be pleasant while you work.

And as we have just mentioned; it should be pleasant when you work so attire can be an important factor. If you don’t have any important conference calls and don’t have to be dressed appropriately... at least the top half of your body, which will be visible in the call. Then you can experiment with comfortable attire which will make your feel cosy, at home, comfortable and work ready.
