Working from home has many advantages, but also some disadvantages, and I’m not just talking about difficult planning. Creating a home office can be a little tricky: should we make it more formal? What will the rest of the room look like then? How do I organize a workspace if it’s not a separate room? Let’s look at some practical tips that can help you.
Working areas in different rooms
You can set up a workspace in any room in your house that is not very noisy or not crowded. Otherwise the work is difficult. Mostly it is a bedroom where you can either sleep or work and nobody will disturb you. You can integrate a workspace into the room decor by choosing appropriate furniture and accessories, or you can divide the workspace and sleepspace with a glazed wall.
Living rooms are another popular space in which to place a workspace. A small workspace with built-in shelves and a built-in desk can be easily placed in such a space and integrated so perfectly that you don’t even notice it. You can highlight it with lighting, accessories and rugs if you like, or you can mix it with the living room. The only problem with finding a living room workspace is probably noise if you have a lot of pets or small children, but if you can handle it, it’s fine.
A kitchen might not be the most comfortable place to work, but if it’s not being used, why not? It might not be the best idea for those who work a lot, but if it’s just a few hours a day, it’s fine. Order extra cabinets like the ones in your kitchen and use them to build your workspace. Do not forget about the additional lighting, it is necessary.
A balcony is the perfect place to create a workspace – lots of light is guaranteed and you won’t be disturbed. All you need is to put a small or built-in desk and some shelves and a comfortable chair there. Enjoy the view and be inspired to work!
