How To Make Your Home Office More Comfortable

Having a home office can work to your advantage because it is liberating to be able to design your own space! You can make changes that contribute to your own personal benefit without worrying about what anyone else thinks. Here we give you some ways to get more comfortable.

Let There be Light

Not only does an office need to be well-lit, but should also have as much natural lighting as possible. Some offices may be tucked away in dark corners or basements. However, it's important to maximize any available natural light. Incorporate various types of lighting. Instead of sticking only to overhead lighting, use desk lamps as well.

Get a Comfortable Desk Chair

This one's a no-brainer. You're going to be spending hours sitting in this thing. A good chair can cost a lot more than a cheap one, but your health and comfort are worth the expense. Try an ergonomic chair, like an Aeron, for maximum benefits of ultimate comfort!

Have a Separate Sitting Area

If the size of your office allows for it, designate an area for comfortable sitting. Consider buying a sofa or recliner. This will give you a change of environment away from the desk. A separate, relaxing area from the work-space.

Stay Organized

Being disorganized can cause pointless stress in your life. Keep your space clean and organized. Your productivity will reap the benefits.

Keep it Single Purpose

When working from home it is easy to make the mistake of using your office for multiple purposes such as storage, or watching the game away from the kids. Have a clear separation between your work-space and personal space. This will help you have a healthy work-life balance.

Decorate!

Decorate your office in a way that will inspire creativity and augment your personal style. Paint the walls a vibrant color, hang your favorite artwork, post funny or inspirational quotes, or bring in some flower or a potted plant. It's your home... So do whatever you want with it!
