Home Office Design Tips

February 9, 2020

Home offices are an increasingly popular feature of homes in Opelika AL. More people than ever are working from home and starting their own businesses. If that includes you, read on for tips to create your ideal home office.

  1. Choose a room away from the busiest part of the house. Ideally, the room will have a door so you can close it off from the rest of the household. Play music or run a fan or white noise machine to block out any ambient sounds.
  2. Use a comfortable, efficient furniture arrangement. Your chair should fit your body so that your back is supported and you can rest your feet flat on the floor. Have your computer screen at eye level with the keyboard at elbow level or below. If you’ll be seeing clients in the office, provide an additional chair or two or a small sofa. You may even want to add a coffee maker and a few snacks for break time.
  3. Keep things organized. You can never have too much storage. Locking file cabinets will keep your important papers secure. Open shelving will make it easy to access books, office supplies and anything else you need to get your work done.
  4. Make the room an appealing place to spend your time. Decorate it with photographs, artwork or meaningful mementoes. Make sure you have sufficient lighting to avoid eye strain.
