The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted to a lot of people working from their homes as part of the “new normal.” While being a home-based worker has numerous perks, it also has its fair share of challenges. One common concern among workers from home is how to set up their workstation or office. If you have the same concern, here are some tips for you.
Find the right spot
Start by choosing an ideal room or area to use as your home office. Pick an area to set up your desk or table. Naturally, find a place that is away from household noises and distractions. Do not forget to consider lighting and ventilation. Natural light is the best but in case it is not available, have bright artificial lighting to save your eyes from fatigue. As for ventilation, nothing beats fresh outdoor air.
Prepare your furniture
Look for a desk or table with enough space for your office essentials such as computer and phone. You would also need an ergonomic chair that you can adjust to suit your height, body size, and comfort preferences when working. This is especially important if you will be working for long hours. Consider other accessories such as monitor mounts, external keyboard, laptop risers, and Vitra office accessories.
Keep things organized
Keep in mind that you are responsible for your “new normal” home workstation, especially when it comes to your supplies, machinery, and the mess. To keep it functional and for you to stay productive, you have to keep things organized. Get rid of all clutter and trash. Use trays for documents or sort them into labeled folders and envelopes. Have a drawer beside your table for your supplies and other work essentials.
Working from home can be challenging, but with a good workstation, things will be much easier. Keep the above-mentioned tips in mind so you can create the perfect home office for the “new normal.”
