Tops tips for creating a home office layout that works for you

  1. 1. When you're working from home, a key factor in maximising productivity is the layout and design of your home office.
  2. 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. 3. Keep watching for some top tips on creating a home office layout that will work best for you...
  4. 4. Never position your computer opposite a window as the glare from the monitor will strain your eyes.
  5. 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. 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. 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. 8. Make full use of daylight wherever possible, but make sure that you have sufficiently lighting in addition to avoid eye strain.
  9. 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. 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. 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. 12. To minimise the number of cables and wires, take the cordless and wireless options for your phone and computer equipment.
  13. 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. 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.
