Working from home is not a novel concept, but what was once a pipe dream has become the new normal as we now live with COVID-19. With more companies allowing their employees to work from home, having the right workstation design for your home should be prioritised. Creating your home workstation doesn’t have to be a daunting task, but if you’re unsure about where to begin, here are 3 pointers to creating the ideal home office design.
Bring the office to you
Recreating the office environment at home should be the starting point for building a home office that promotes efficiency. However, this doesn’t mean you have to strictly adhere to plain white walls and a cubicle.
Colour therapy has been found to encourage creativity and productivity, not to mention it also creates a visually distinct workspace to set apart from the rest of your home. Our modern home office furniture such as the ottomans and poufs are great for not only adding colour to your home office as additional seats, but they are also the aid you need to prop your legs after a long day. Larger ones like our Media Bench can double up as mini tables to place your laptop or for playing board games. Ultimately, choose the colours that help you to focus better at work.
Stash away unnecessary clutter
A messy workstation doesn’t just make it harder to find important documents when you need them, but it also affects your workflow. A clean and uncluttered desk is the cornerstone of most home office inspiration posts — and for a good reason too. Having visual clutter in your line of sight while you’re trying to work can be distracting and may affect your ability to focus on the task at hand. Bring order to your workstation by adding shelving and storage options so you can easily stash away unnecessary items.
If you prefer your storage to be a little closer at hand or simply wish to be able to change its position whenever you wish without having to break a sweat, invest in mobile office cabinets such as the Dan Mobile Pedestal that can double as additional storage for your work from home essentials such as your snacks or important documents. A mobile storage option is a great idea when it comes to home office setups that aren’t fixed as you can simply wheel them wherever you wish.
Get the right home office furniture
Having an aesthetically pleasing home office shouldn’t be the only consideration when it comes to your home office interior design. In fact, your home office furniture and design ideas should be mainly focused on comfort. But why choose when you can have the best of both worlds at Comfort Furniture? Your main work from home essentials should be a sturdy work table and a comfortable chair, preferably ergonomic ones to ensure optimal comfort. When looking for a home office chair, it’s best to choose an ergonomic office chair like the Nitro, which provides the “best lumbar support” as voted by our customers. Afraid of the heat yet not a fan of the air-conditioner? Models like the Azura that’s fully meshed on the backrest and seat areas will be a life-saver in our tropical climate. Wish for some cushion on the seat? Then Stellar will be what you should look at. With its translucent mesh that’s almost transparent-looking to our eyes — this is evidence that air molecules will be able to permeate too!
Once you’ve settled on your choice of seat, it’s time to look at table options. Don’t forget to factor in space constraints when planning your home office setup ideas. Before you choose a table, decide if you’d like to go with a conventional workstation table or if you’d prefer a height-adjustable table such as the Amp Riser and Tito Sit/Stand Desk, both of which are popular choices when it comes to modern home office furniture. When it comes to conventional tables, choices are aplenty and include workstations of various sizes and even training tables. Training tables are loved for their ability to be folded and kept aside when not in use. It all depends on your budget and space constraints. If you didn’t know already, most of our workstations and training tables are customisable in size and colour. At Comfort Furniture, you will definitely get furniture that fits your house perfectly and with a matching colour scheme.
