Working from home has increasingly become much more common. However it can be difficult to stay focused on your work and not become distracted by friends dropping in for a coffee or household chores, like popping the washing on. So to help ensure you are as productive as possible we have put together a few tips to create the perfect work environment within your own home.
Not matter whether you are working in an office or at home your work area should be comfortable, quiet and have lots of natural light. It is important to be away from distractions so you can get on with work but try to pick a room or area in the house where you can ‘shut work away’ at the end of the day. It should also be spacious enough to accommodate all your work requirements.
Keep all your documents and stationery in drawers or cupboards and have an ‘in tray’ on your desk to store documents you are currently working on. A clutter free space will help you keep calm and concentrate on the task at hand; essential for when you’re on a deadline for work.
Make your work space somewhere that will stimulate and inspire you to be more productive. Personalize the area with posters, pictures or plants to make your home office a space you want to spend time in.
As your business grows and develops you may require extra space for storing products or documents, but it may not be practical to allocate more space in your home. A self-storage unit could be the perfect solution. At Spaces and Places, we offer affordable, flexible and practical solutions for any business; – choosing and using a self-storage facility with us couldn’t be easier.
