After the quarantine, it became evident that it was unnecessary to visit the office to work effectively. However, there should be a well-thought-out and comfortable workplace at home. We tell you how to create it.
The requirements for a home office are different for everyone: someone is comfortable working in creative chaos with a large board of inspiration. But, on the other hand, someone needs a perfect order when everything superfluous is removed, and there is a minimum of things on the table.
If you are a blogger, you need filming equipment, a place for the camera, light, sound. It is also essential to modify the space around you with the help of decor, light, and color.
If you are a young mother with a child and your main activity is focused on the Internet, you can place a playpen or a corner with toys next to the workplace.
If you work as a psychologist, it is better to isolate the office for visiting and arrange a place for video calls.
Are you an artist? I know for myself that you need racks, shelves, and drawers for various materials and intelligent lighting for working in the evening. And you should be able to throw around canvases, brushes, paints, and fabrics.
So, let’s look at the most critical elements of the workspace.
The main components of a home office are a table and a chair. These two items should be as comfortable as possible.
If you want to avoid problems with the spine and vision, follow the right angles. For example, when you sit, your knees and feet should be at a 90-degree angle to the floor, and the same angle should be observed between your hips and torso.
It is convenient when the chair’s back is solid, smooth, smooth when there is an adjustable vertebral roller and a headrest for unloading the cervical spine.
There are many options for tables, and you can choose a standard and comfortable white desk or look for something more original. Choose it according to the style of your work. For example, if you are an artist and paint, then you need a well-lit large wide table with the possibility of placing paints in drawers or on shelves.
If you mainly work on a laptop or tablet, then a small table with a well-thought-out charging for gadgets will be enough, perhaps with a stand for a computer, wireless charging for a phone, with evening lighting, or you can even try a hybrid remote work schedule, thanks to which your posture will always be perfect. Thanks to this work, you will burn your calories.
There are many options for lighting your home office; it all depends on your work style. If the office is located in a common room, such as a living room or bedroom, you should consider buying a good hybrid workforce that will protect your vision. If you work in a separate room, you can think of general and spotlighting suitable for your work style.
