If you are now working from home as a result of the pandemic, odds are you had to quickly find an appropriate workspace in your house or (if you’re lucky) work full-time from a preexisting home office. If your home office isn’t the space of your dreams, here are three simple things you can do to spruce it up.
Get Some New Furniture
Nothing will breathe new life into your office space like some new furniture. If your budget isn’t high, consider purchasing some Indianapolis used office furniture to make working from home more comfortable. Treat yourself to a comfy ergonomic chair, and invest in some useful storage cabinets so that your workspace always stays tidy.
Add Personal Touches
Your new office should make you feel happy, and since it is inside your home, you don’t have any rules or regulations regarding decorating. According to a Harvard study, employees work better when they have control over their space, so bring whatever personal touches and fun decorations that you wish into your office and make it a place that you truly love.
Maximize Color And Lighting
Do what you can to make your office bright and happy! If you have windows, ensure that the blinds are open so you can get natural light throughout the day. Paint your walls a bright color or add some cheerful artwork or family photos to your walls for a pop of energy. Drab, dark rooms can make you tired and less productive at work—not to mention, they are completely boring. This is your chance to create the office of your dreams!
A sudden switch to telecommuting does not have to throw you for a loop. Use this new opportunity to create a workspace that you love and can perform to your highest ability.
