With our new normal, does working from home scare you?
It shouldn’t but the number one thing you must have is a quiet dedicated space where you can close the door. That’s non- negotiable. So now you have your space, what’s next?
How many people will be working in your home office? Just you? A spouse? An employee? If it’s more than one, figure out the placement of the desks so that you’re not tripping over each other.
Here’s a picture of a his and hers office that I designed. They both had different needs and styles so I think we were able to create a workable space that is not only functional but looks great too.
Some other things you need to consider— Will you be using your wireless lap top or will it be a desktop? If it’s a desktop, how can you hide those unsightly wires? Will you need file drawers? How large do they need to be? Do you need a printer? Where will that go and where will you store your paper? What about other supplies like envelopes, paper clips, pens, etc? I like a dedicated space for those items.
Will you need a bulletin board? Wall calendar? How important are shelves? So many things to think about, right? But I’m telling you before you decide to run out and buy a desk, really sit down and ask yourself how do I need this room to work for me to function at maximum capacity?
