At Lavoro Consulting, we have helped countless companies set up their brick-and-mortar office layouts. We also consult with employees about setting up a home office that provides them with the space to work productively. Here are the three top remote office furniture hacks to help you improve your at-home workspace.
3 Top Remote Office Furniture Layout Tips
1. Create A Secluded Work Area
A common mistake when creating a productive workspace at home is to try to do it all in one room. You need a dedicated area just for work away from your at-home life. Work-life balance is especially important when working from home.
Be sure to create a separation between work and personal life by dedicating a room or even a whole section of larger living space to your office. It will allow you to focus on work without being distracted by other activities. You can even invest in a partitioned piece of furniture to carve out your dedicated area.
2. Invest in an Ergonomic Chair
If you don’t already own a chair that supports your back properly, invest in one right away. Chairs designed for sitting all day long should be ergonomically correct. The best ergonomic chairs are fully adjustable, including seat height and pan depth adjustments, adjustable lumbar supports, and height and width adjustable armrests. In fact, your whole remote work area should be ergonomically sound.
No more leaning over your computer on the couch or any other positions that compromise your back and neck.
3. Set Up Your Office in a Well-Lit Area
Lighting plays a huge role in whether or not you feel inspired to work. Having plenty of natural light throughout the day will keep you motivated to stay focused on your tasks.
Choose a room for your office that has lots of natural light, or if you have to, partition off a space in a well-lit area of your home that is free from distractions. Utilize lamps strategically around your work area to provide as much supplemental light as possible.
