Now, during Covid times, the trend of staying at home and work remotely has been spreading all over the globe. The future of office work could come down to a compromise and the tendency would continue even when the pandemic is gone.
Creative people, tutors, freelancers, and entrepreneurs who carry out their main work activities at home are united by one thing – they need a personal workspace at home. The first and the most essential requirement for this – is furniture.
Desktop and shelves
A functional desktop must be placed in a bright place, on the sunny side, so as not to strain your eyes. At least one window must be present near the location of the computer.
Choose a desk with convenient drawers for all your paperwork and stationery. If the desk drawers are not enough, add a small cabinet on the wall or put a shelf or two on the sides of the table.
A home office table can be made of wood, glass, or metal – it all depends on the style of your home interior.
If you are going to spend a lot of time in your own home office, then you need to take care of a comfortable chair.
The design should be adjustable, with the ability to change the height of the seat, the angle of the seatback, and some other parameters; the best choice would be a semi-soft seat made of non-slip, breathable material that is easy to clean.
Furniture color and style
Home office furniture should complement other rooms in your house.
It is worth choosing its color and style based on personal preferences. It is better to opt for soft, discreet shades so that nothing distracts you from work.
Finally, if you have additional space available, you can put a couch or a comfortable chair near the table for thinking over creative ideas, or just for relaxation.
I currently live in Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine. I’ve finished the Kyiv Linguistic University with a degree in English and Spanish language teaching.
I’ve written numerous scientific and research articles, but creative writing has always been the most exciting part of my English language classes.
Today, I am a highly accomplished translator and a content writer. I eagerly write unique and gripping content such as book reviews, articles on different topics, and more.
