Transcript

  • 1. When you're working from home, a key factor in maximising productivity is the layout and design of your home office.
  • 2. An organised and streamlined working space will help you to keep focussed and make the most of your working hours spent in your office or work area.
  • 3. Keep watching for some top tips on creating a home office layout that will work best for you...
  • 4. Never position your computer opposite a window as the glare from the monitor will strain your eyes.
  • 5. To create an illusion of space, place the largest (or tallest) piece of furniture at the furthest point away from the door or entry point.
  • 6. If you have the space, a great way to get organised is to position two desks in a L-shape, allowing you to dedicate one desk to computer work, and the other to offline paperwork and writing.
  • 7. If space is scarce and your 'office' is actually the corner of another room, buy a specially designed computer workstation with concealed office storage. That way you can simply close the doors on all your office equipment when you've finished working for the day.
  • 8. Make full use of daylight wherever possible, but make sure that you have sufficiently lighting in addition to avoid eye strain.
  • 9. If your work involves drawing or writing by hand, try and make sure that your work desk is positioned so that the light from any windows does not cast a shadow on the page.
  • 10. Ensure that you have sufficient storage options, including filing cabinets, shelving and any other relevant furniture for housing everything you need to keep in your office.
  • 11. Keep electrical cords and computer wires tidy and untangled to avoid mishaps. Use a cord tidy where appropriate, and try and buy office furniture specially designed with cable openings at the back.
  • 12. To minimise the number of cables and wires, take the cordless and wireless options for your phone and computer equipment.
  • 13. Sometimes good old- fashioned handwritten notes and post-it notes are the best option for reminders and 'notes to self'. To avoid clutter, get a corkboard for this purpose, or use a blackboard.
  • 14. Live houseplants can make a real difference to the atmosphere in your office, figuratively and literally! Some plants, like the peace lily, are very easy to grow, even without natural light.
