With more people working from home, or performing important work functions after hours, we need an area in our homes dedicated to work tasks.
If you can dedicate a room in your home for work, you’ll have plenty of space to create a comfortable and practical zone. You’ll be able to add a desk, chair, bookshelf and anything else you may need.
• Check your lighting
To protect your eyes from eye strain, make sure your lighting is suitable. Make sure you have warm overhead lighting and lots of natural daylight in your space. Avoid any lighting that may cause glare on your laptop or computer screen.
• Cut the clutter
One of the biggest challenges is keeping the space relatively clutter free. To ensure your area remains clean and uncluttered, invest in shelving or storage for the room and ensure paperwork is filed or dealt with as soon as possible. Have a dedicated and organised storage area for your stationery, so that it can all be packed away neatly and accessed when necessary.
The most important item is the desk or work surface. This will be where you place your laptop, printer, modem and other vital office equipment.
Home office desks should be practical, but that doesn’t mean they can’t look stylish. By incorporating modern materials and natural woods, you can create an environment you’ll be happy to spend time in.
Choosing the style will help to set a tone for the rest of the office space or room. A glass table top with trellis legs is a great choice for a contemporary look, but this style doesn’t lend itself to clutter, so ensure you have plenty of storage options in the room to keep papers, files, magazines, pens and stationery neatly packed away. Other glass options include full tempered glass deskstops, which look very sleek and stylish.
For a more traditional style, select a classic office desk in a natural wood look. This style will suit a more classic room design and would work well with antique pieces.
For a small space, consider a leaning desk that fits neatly against the wall, but that also offers shelving to store extra items. If it doesn’t include shelving or draws, consider how you can add more storage space to the room.
If you have a child who needs a study area, you could add a study desk in their bedroom or playroom. If your child is easily distracted, you may want to place it in a public space like the dining room or living room. Not only will you be able to offer them support when they need it, you will also ensure they don’t drift off or start doing something else.
Education experts suggest placing it facing a wall instead of facing a window. This will help the child to remain focused and not be distracted. Keep the work surface as clutter free as possible, as a cluttered desk is also distracting and can be off-putting for the child.
Creating a dedicated study desk area will help children get into a homework routine, which will make your life easier as homework will become less of a struggle.
