How To Create the Perfect Home Office

The shift to remote work that began during the pandemic, for many, has become permanent. Currently, 27% of U.S. employees work from home. Yet, many of us are still rocking our ad hoc home office setups. It’s time to leave the lockdown vibes behind. Here are some helpful tips on how to create a comfortable and productive home office.

Upgrade Your Chair

The most important component of your home office is your chair. You spend at least half of your day sitting on it, which is why it's worth it to invest in something with good ergonomic design and comfort. Even if you already have a decent chair, consider adding cushions, headrests, etc., that will improve your posture and reduce strain and discomfort on your body.

Consider an Additional Monitor

Depending on your job requirements, having a second monitor in your home office can be highly advantageous. An extra monitor does take up more space, but it makes it easier to multitask and perform jobs that involve writing, researching, coding, and designing. The best option is to purchase the same model as your current screen, which ensures an identical viewing experience and fidelity.

 

Upgrade Your Internet

A reliable internet connection is crucial to working from home. If you have spotty service or you find yourself freezing on important meetings and calls, you can’t be productive. Consider upgrading your old router, upgrading to a faster internet package, or even changing internet service providers. You may also be able to ask your company if they provide reimbursement for home internet costs.

Get the Essentials

You probably have the basics – pens, notepads, etc., but think about other tools you had in an office that made your job easier. Things like a printer, scanner, detached keyboard, whiteboard, standing desk, filing cabinet, etc. Make a list and begin to chip away at it.

 

Get the Non-Essentials

If you have some budget left after buying everything you need, you can add some nice finishing touches to your space. Things like furniture, rugs, shelving, and other nice-to-have items that will create a better atmosphere but aren’t essential to do your job.

 

Give it a Mood

You spend a lot of time there, so make your home office a place you enjoy going to every day. Add artwork, plants, and light fixtures that make you feel energized, relaxed, or focused. Make the space inviting, comfortable, and organized. It will improve your mood and may improve your productivity as well.
