Whether you’ve been working from home forever or are just starting your telecommuting journey, it’s important that your home office be beautiful. Imagine all wood cabinetry with full overlay cabinet doors, brilliant artwork and interesting decor that sparks creativity, a clean, oversized desk free of clutter and full of motivation…
If you’re thinking that aesthetics don’t matter when it’s just you and your computer screen — think again. Recent studies indicate people that work from home can be more productive than in their company’s office. But that’s not across the board.
There are certain things that need to happen in your home office to boost productivity. Here’s the case for building a beautiful home office — and how doing so can make working from home a much better experience.
1.You’ll have a clearer mind and better focus.
If you can’t focus, you can’t do good work. And when you’re home, you’re certainly not free of distractions. But what’s better than uncomfortable conditions in your company’s office? Uncomfortable conditions in your own home office. Why? Because you have full control to make improvements. Too cold? Turn up the air conditioning. Too loud? Shut the door, or turn the music up.
You also have full reign when it comes to the design of your home office, and you can make changes to your space that will decrease the number of distractions. In addition to temperature and noise, another common culprit is clutter. Installing custom cabinets to organize all of your office essentials can free up space on your desk while simultaneously helping to clear your mind.
2. You’ll get more done when your office is a prime place for productivity.
Our surroundings have a huge impact on our mood and energy. From the paint color on the walls to the swivel of your desk chair, all of the elements that make up an office determine whether or not you’re going to be productive there.
Putting effort into the look and feel of your home office will pay off tenfold when the result is you getting more done in less time. Chuck the notion that all you need is a desk and some technology to tackle this work from home life head on. By creating an environment that puts you in boss mode, you’ll be ready for whatever the day’s agenda holds.
3. Rather than avoiding work, you’ll welcome it when it means more time in your stunning home office.
Do your eyes quickly divert when in the presence of your work computer? You may be trying to avoid your daily tasks because your home office is not the most pleasant spot in your home. We’ve talked a bit about how a beautiful home office can clear your mind, help you focus and increase productivity. But it can also help you actually get in the room.
By making your space more comfortable, you won’t need that triple shot of espresso and pep talk to walk through the doors of your home office (although it doesn’t hurt). An inviting home office is one you are willing to spend more time in. You’ll start your work day in a whole new way with an inspiring color scheme, organized custom cabinets, and a clean desk. Your beautiful home office is going to give you a fresh perspective on remote work and we can’t wait to see what you’ll do with it.
