Working from home can be super beneficial to your work life balance if done correctly. A productive work environment will not only increase your work ethic but keep a sense of calm to an otherwise hectic work week. We have provided some tips below, to help you create an organised office space that works for you!
Creating a space
First things first find a space to be your dedicated work area, this will help to set barriers to keep a healthy balance of work life and home life. If possible, we highly suggest having a separate room for your work space, a home office is ideal but if a separate office space isn’t an option, a quiet nook or area that isn’t in a high-foot traffic area will work perfectly.
You could also consider incorporating a desk in to the living area or transforming one end of the dining table. Remember to keep these working from home spaces organised and clutter free as this will help to create an inspiring work environment that keeps you focused.
Now, let’s talk storage!
Storage in your home office is imperative, especially if you’re in a common area, as this will help keep your space organised and functional. Our Inabox modular containers and insert trays ensure everything has a spot. The comfort of knowing where everything is located will not only save you time but also increase your productivity. Having an organised work space can bring a sense of calm while you’re working from home without meditation or yoga, to best achieve this keep only essential items in front of you and store the remainder away.
