The Importance of Customizing Your Home Office

The Importance of Customizing Your Workspace

This year is all about change! Let’s leave stressing about unattractive backgrounds for last minute zoom meetings and replying to emails at the cramped dining room table at the 2020 rearview mirror. Working from home trends are carrying into the new year and it’s time to transform your temporary workspace into a fantasy home office. Whether the office is a new addition to your home,or your office layout needs a bit of an upgrade,investing some TLC into personalizing your workspace doesn’t only make your home feel less like a job site,it also provides several long-term benefits. Here are our top reasons for why personalizing your home office is so important.

1. Reduce Stress

If you have been camping at your kitchen counter or rotate your workspace around other’s programs,then your first purpose of the new year is to find your own designated area. Not having an established workspace or an at-home routine can be overwhelming and stressful. It is easy to lose track of meetings,misplace important documents in the stack of daily email,and be disrupted by constant distractions. A helpful tip to decrease stress levels while working from home would be to adhere to a routine and decide on a system in place that fits your lifestyle best. Some folks love to adhere to a rigid routine,completing tasks like clockwork. If you fear a dull program,then create a routine with flexibility which stillkeeps you on track and focused throughout the day. Defining areas of the room or a particular time of day for certain tasks can help keep your mind sharp and stay productive. Start your morning by pulling the blinds open and allowing the bright sunlight fill the room as inspiration for any creative tasks. Once it’s time to take a break from computer work,change your setting up by moving from the desk to your couch and relax as you answer calls or attend virtual meetings. When you are ready to buckle down and focus,return to your desk and pull up the most comfortable chair thatyou could sit for hours. Having some familiarity in a new environment can be calming and reassuring during times of change. Additionally,it will help put you at ease when every record has its place,and you do not have to scramble last minute to find some peace and quiet.

When you haven’t found a set location to work from yet,consider repurposing your spare space. You know,the room you book for when family and friends come to see and where you hide all your online purchases. While it’s great to utilize this temporarily vacant space,it’s not currently designed to be your office so you could feel the necessity to preserve its current design. Packing up your workspace at the end of the day can make you feel as if you’re the guest and limitations are not optimal for productivity. Integrating some personal touches can make you feel more calm,comfortable,and confident to take on any new assignment. Remember that making the room feel yours doesn’t mean you have to completely redesign the space and toss the mattress. You can have a stylish,productive space which serves multiple purposes with a few design enhancements.

Each individual finds inspiration and motivation in different ways,so it’s important to curate a workspace layout that is most optimal for you to be productive. For those who have a creative job,incorporate colors and patterns that inspire you. If you work best when you are relaxed,design with muted,soothing tones which provide serenity during a chaotic workday. This is your home,which means you can design it in any way that makes you feel happy and capable every time you walk into the office. If having a home office feels awkward,then rethink what it looks like to work from home and create a design that functions like an office but looks like an elegant”she-shed.” To rethink your home office design,personalize it with a one-of-a-kind desk and chair in fabrics and leathers which are just as unique as you. Customize your desk from the style,to the size,to the fabric and create furniture that looks fashionable while matching your personality perfectly. The best perk of designing your own custom desk is that if you want to clock out for the day,the stress of the office disappears,and your home office goes back to being your dwelling!

3. Boost Your Mood with Ergononic Office Furniture

While we recommend sticking to a routine at home,reporting to your office doesn’t have to be boring or stagnant. There are no strict company guidelines to adhere to. It’s your space which means you have all of the freedom to design it however you like.

When designing,you can begin small. Brighten your mood by incorporating sentimental items which bring you pleasure and decorate the space with personal items like family photos or memorabilia from unforgettable trips. Integrate your personality into the office with new furniture in your favorite colors. While fashionable,aesthetic items are important to make a room look stylish,make sure not to skimp on the comfort! Sometimes happiness is achieved by simply wrapping yourself up in a soft,warm blanket. Drape your cozy Barefoot Dreams throw over a lavish desk chair like you are staging for a lavish home catalog. Beat the chill winter temperatures by handily bundling up and enhance your mood in moments.

4. Improve Your Work Performance

Some smart advice to live by is to invest in yourself since it pays the best interest. Your environment plays a significant role in your mood and since many people spend nearly all our week working in our home office,you deserve the ability to curate an area that is comfortable,functional and motivating. In return,not only will you really delight in reporting into the home office every day,but you’ll see how your performance can improve when your distance works for you. Unconvinced? An inadequate workspace can negatively impact your work performance in a similar manner. Our surroundings set the tone of the day,so if your workspace lacks organization,layout,and personality it will result in feeling stressed,unproductive,and miserable which isn’t optimum for high performance. Define your current and future career goals and design your office that is stylish,functional,and fosters those aspirations.

We understand how much pride you take in your work. Let us help you optimize your potential with a workspace that is deserving of your talent. Personalize your home office and curate it to be whatever you want it to be.
