Over the past couple of years, we’ve all had to make changes to the way we live and the way we work. A lot of us have had to adapt to working remotely when it hasn’t been possible to head into the office. Maybe you’re spending your time working from home permanently. Spending so much time in one space in your home can become tedious. Changing up your environment can inject a bit of excitement into your daily routine. If you have a designated workspace, sprucing it up can certainly help. Here are a few ways to help redesign your home-work life.
If you have your own workspace away from the rest of the house, there are a few basics that you need to make sure you’re comfortable. Making sure your office is heated is a must– modern radiators can help you to achieve this. Not only do they help to warm the room, but they can also pack a punch when it comes to modern colour and design. A designer radiator would add a sleek and modern feel to your office, as well as efficiently heat your space. Making sure you have plenty of natural light is essential to flood your office with sunshine and create an airy space for you to spend your day in.
Maybe you’ve been working at the kitchen table for a couple of years or you’re partial to slipping onto the sofa with your laptop after lunch. Redesigning your working life is a way to combat this bad habit! Investing in a desk that is suitable for you, standing or sitting, will allow you to feel more productive and professional. A desk allows you to keep all your work documents and equipment in one place, and you can place it wherever you think is best, under a window, or away from distractions.
Your workspace needs to be somewhere that you can work effectively and efficiently. Because it’s a place where you’ll spend most of your time, decorating it and designing it to how you want it to look is essential. Bright colours to inspire and uplift or muted, natural tones to create a more soothing and calmer environment – the possibilities are endless. With a feature wall with patterned wallpaper or a contrasting colour, you can be as adventurous as you’d like. Let your personality shine through with your new office aesthetic.
Making sure your workspace feels like your very own is key. Once you’ve experimented with your colours and patterns, it’s time to accessorise. You could add scented candles to create a relaxing environment for you to concentrate, add photos of family or friends to your desk to make you smile during your day at work. Add a coloured cushion to your desk chair or buy yourself a new mug and coaster to embellish your desk.
Re-designing your workspace will help to motivate you and help you to work more efficiently. Creating a space that feels like your own and you want to spend time in will make your days of working from home that little bit easier.
