Posted on: June 2, 2020 | by: Lighthouse Self Storage November 9, 2020

With more and more people having to adapt to remote work, finding a work/life balance can be difficult. Lighthouse Self Storage is here to help you create the perfect ‘work from home’ office setup. Follow our guide to create a proper work environment to balance work and life at home.

Work From Home: Office Setup Guide

1. Find Your Space

Before setting up your workspace, find an area in your home that will keep you away from distractions. You don’t want to set up your office in a noisy area or area with constant distractions (like the TV). If you have a spare room in your home, consider setting up your office space in here. You’ll be more productive if you work in a quiet space.

2. Get the Right Desk

Find a desk that suits your needs. You’ll need a desk big enough for your computer, basic office supplies, and room to space out. There are a variety of desks available online. From standing desks to writing desks to corner desks, you can find the perfect desk that will suit your home office needs. Your kitchen table could also work as a substitute for a desk.

3. Prioritize Comfort

Comfort is key while working from home. Since you’ll be spending many hours sitting at your desk, be sure to invest in a good quality office chair. You want to find a chair that’s the proper height that also provides good neck and back support. Dining room chairs and living room chairs could be used as substitutes for desk chairs.

4. Declutter

One of the most important things you could do while working from home is to stay organized! Keep your workspace free of clutter to help you stay more productive. Remove all unnecessary items from your desk and only keep the essentials. Store your documents in a filing system in your desk or cabinet. Store your pens, stapler, and notepads in one area in your desk drawer.

5. Consider Natural Light

Proper lighting is essential while working, so your eyes don’t get tired of strained. Try to set up your workspace next to a window that has a lot of access to natural light. Natural light can help improve your mood and boost work productivity.

6. Shared Office Space Setup

If your child, partner, or roommate is also working from home, consider setting up a shared office space. Having a shared office space is ideal when wanting to separate work and life. Instead of having everyone spread out throughout the house, keep an area in your home designed for work. If you’re worried about distractions, get a room divider.
