It is important to be able to reach all important items without needing to stretch or twist, the space should be comfortable and inspiring, especially if you spend a lot of time in it. The best office space will suit your personal needs, to ensure you have the best space for your
needs follow these tips:
Assess the space you have available carefully-There is little point in having too little space or too much space left over. You will need a desk, chair and some sort of storage cabinet. Measure the space you have available before you add the furniture. This will ensure you get the best furniture for the space you have and your needs. You must consider how long you will actually spend sat at your office desk. If you only sit down for half an hour or even an hour at a time then you will be able to choose a stylish chair. However, if you are in your chair for long periods of the day at a tile you must go for comfort.
All eyes on the desk – the centerpiece of your office. Just as your chair needs to fulfill your physical needs so does your desk. You must choose a desk which has adequate space for you and the paperwork, laptop, phone and any other accessories you like to have to hand. You may also wish to choose a desk with drawers to keep certain items available.
Settle on a budget prior to buying furniture-It is important to consider how much you have to spend on your office furniture. Having a lower budget does not mean foregoing the good chair and desk; it does mean you may need to leave a wall unit or cabinet until a later date.
Ownership-Is the office space yours, or is it shared? This is an important question; if your space is shared you will need to consider the needs of those who are sharing the space and ensure they are comfortable as well.
Personal style– A truly comfortable office is one which reflects your personality. You may prefer contemporary pieces or antique furniture. Either option is acceptable, provided it creates a space that you feel comfortable and able to work in. If course, you may need to balance your preferences with what will look right in the office, particularly if it is shared.
Size– You will, undoubtedly, be aware of the importance of sitting properly at your desk. To ensure you are able to sit in the optimum position you will need to choose a desk and chair which will be proportion to you and your needs.
The walls- These should be painted a soothing, pastel color, preferably one that you like. This will help to make your office feel warm and comfortable. You should also hang several pictures which reflect you personal outlook or artistic preference. The walls can also be used to add a small notice board or even an organizer to help you know where and what you are doing.
Quality-It is important to choose quality products when setting up your office. They may cost a little more in the first place but they are almost certain to, last longer and feel more solid when being handled. This is an important consideration if you spend a lot of time in your office. Handmade metal furniture pieces for example, can be extremely practical. Invest in items with multiple purposes so that you can easily deposit your paperwork and keep things organized.
Lighting– One of the most important parts of any room is the lights. You should aim to have as much natural light as possible. You will also need some good overhead lights and, possibly a desk lamp to help with smaller, intricate work. Lights should not give you headaches and they should add a touch of style to your space.
Turn your home office into the most comfortable working environment and choose furniture sets that are both stylish and practical. Comfort should be a top priority as well, and before making any decisions, make sure to settle on a budget.
