5 Tips And Tricks To Get Your Home Office Ready

Do you want to make your home office a more beautiful and productive space?

Do you want to make your home office a more beautiful and productive space?

 

A home office allows you to get some work done while away from the office. It also means you have allowed work into your living space – which may interfere with your personal life and living space to some extent. 

 

One way to avoid distractions and everything else that comes with working from home, is to ensure your home office is comfortable enough to enable you to get some work done. 

 

But, get too comfortable and you risk losing the professional touch and seeing your productivity slip.

 

The simplest way to stay focused is to decorate your home office and keep it organised at all times. You could also use items you love and artwork to decorate the office to prevent boredom. 

 

If you’re ready to transform your home office, here are 6 tips and ideas on how to get you ready. 

 

#1 - Keep your office organised

 

It’s easy for your home office to get messy and disorganised. 

 

You may overlook the mess piling up in organisational bins, drawers and on tables. Some mess like this can make it almost impossible to navigate through the day - or even get any work done at all. 

 

It’s easy to tell yourself you’ll set aside 5 minutes of your time to keep the office organised. But most of us keep postponing this until it gets out of hand. There are also dozens of office organisation ideas and options you can implement in your home office. 

 

For example, if you already have drawers, organisations bins, and filing cabinets in the office, you should come up with a plan to keep these organised. 

 

Or, you could minimise the need to keep paper-receipts and other documents by having them scanned and stored in digital form. Scanning most of your documents will help reduce clutter and the need for filing cabinets in the first place. 

 

Looking to streamline your office structure? Choose a favourite pen, pencil, or even notebook to preserve a more minimalistic office setup. Or, only keep files that are of vital to you and your work. 

 

There’s always a way to minimise clutter if you’re willing to find it.

 

#2 - Elevate your thinking 

 

Make use of the vertical space in the office by adding floating shelves, cabinets, and even hang artwork you love and adore on the walls. 

 

You should not only use the walls as an asset for storage but decoration purposes in the office. 

 

Interior Designer expert Michael Yousef suggests you should “play around with inspiring wall hangings, open cabinets with colourful books carefully organised, as well as meaningful trinkets.” 

 

#3 - Consider cable management

 

While the digital era and digital systems have their advantages, these bring along a whole lot of cables which if not managed well, can be a nightmare in the office. 

 

Items that require untidy cables include your:

 

  • Computer

  • Printer

  • Smartphone

  • Laptop

  • Other digital accessories

 

As inevitable as these cables may seem, you need to devise a plan to keep them out of sight. One way you can do this is by mounting a power strip underneath your desk or adding a hidden compartment for all these wires. Your office will have a much better look and feel as long as these cables are out of sight. 

 

#4 - Ensure there’s adequate lighting

 

Have you ever wondered why most office setups have almost cold but sterile lighting? 

 

The main idea behind this is to ensure you don’t strain your eyes as you work, and mainly if working with a computer. Strain from computer screens can take a toll on your eyes, making it hard to produce as much as you would in a properly/adequately lit office setup. 

 

According to construction design expert Richard Gabriel, you should still ensure your home office takes advantage of both natural light and artificial light. He explains “try opening windows and doors to allow more natural light during the day, and have fluorescent or LED bulbs shining over you in the evening. Exposure to natural light helps improve your circadian rhythm and improve sleep, so don’t focus on artificial light only.”

 

#5 - Personalise your space

 

The office will be an extension of your home. 

 

Consider creating an atmosphere only you can relate to and love to be in. You can do this by decorating it with personal artwork, photos, themes, and anything else you find alluring.  

 

The best thing with a home office is the fact that no one will disapprove of your office theme or disallow you from bringing a green plant to your desk. You have your imagination to create the best office setup and atmosphere you can think of. 


 

#6 - Bring In The Essentials

 

There is more to a home office than the decorations and tons of files. 

 

A good office is made up of a comfortable chair, desk, and a lamp. Everything else should come after you are settled with these.  

 

Find an ergonomic chair to enable you to sit for hours without complaining of backaches. You can then take it a notch hire to decorate it with pieces of your work and anything else you consider worth in the space.

Comedians Mandy Nolan and Ellen Briggs are returning to the region for three free comedy shows in Wee Waa, Yetman & Bendemeer

from June 24-26. These are hosted by HealthWISE thanks to a grant from HNE

Irreverent pair Mandy Noland and Ellen Briggs are returning to the North West to give Wee Waa, Yetman and Bendemeer locals a taste of their down-to-earth comedy.
With seven children between them, the duo are not afraid to explore the ups and downs of domestic life, and have a collection of anecdotes about incidents labelled as ‘failures to parent’.
“We're 40 something mothers of teenagers, we're wives, and ex wives!” Mandy said.
“Ellen can wrangle a snake and operate a ride on mower in the afternoon, and by evening she dons heels and a frock and then she's the MC of a charity ball.”
Nothing is off the table in their act – from the beauty industry to menopause, weird TV shows, big undies, and the all-important issue of whose turn it is to unpack the dishwasher.
As ‘small town showgirls’, the pair have endless fun delivering their rapid fire routines on stage, and have a special connection to country audiences.
Hosted by HealthWISE thanks to a Hunter New England and Central Coast Primary Health Network (HNECC PHN) Empowering Our Communities grant, the duo will perform free shows in Wee Waa on June 24, Yetman on June 25 and Bendemeer on June 26.
