A cluttered home office with a lot of things from other rooms will distract you from working. Try to keep your desk, papers and computer equipment in neat and organized condition. Such strategy reduces the risk that you will lose some important invoice or assignment in this chaos. Besides, you won’t trip over things if your office is organized.

A neat office maintains the atmosphere of professionalism that is necessary to keep you concentrated. If you need a break, you always can go to another room and come back when you are ready to work again.

PEOPLE NEED NATURAL LIGHT

Office without windows feels more like solitary confinement. If you don’t wish to work in such conditions you need to have windows in your office to allow natural light to come into the room and mix with the artificial sources. If you don’t have much natural light for working, try to paint the walls in colors that can beat the problem. For instance, orange and red colors make every room brighter, especially if it faces the north. Note that sunlight effects colors can look different throughout the day, so plan your colors carefully.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT CHAIR

Long sitting on an uncomfortable chair doesn’t raise our productivity. Office chair is the most important furniture as it has great impact on our physical health. Ergonomic chairs bring better spine suppor than their cheaper alternatives. If you sit with less tension in your back and pressure on your spine you can work much longer. So you can finish a brief for your important client late in the evening if you have the right chair.

MINIMIZE THE PLUGS AND WIRES

Your computer, phone set, mouse, printer and Internet router create a ball of wires in your office. These devices also need plugs that are difficult to accommodate without strict planning. Try to use wireless connection for your Internet and printer. Also buy a multi-plug power strip for your devices.

Check that the power strip has a surge protector. If you wish to protect your equipment from a terminal electrical discharge when the power suddenly goes out in a storm, you must have it. Certainly, the last thing you want is to lose the document you’ve worked on for many days because somewhere miles away the lightning struck a transformer.

CHOOSE THE FURNITURE TO FIT THE ROOM

Manipulations with space have a lot to do with your feelings. High ceilings with small furniture leave the feeling of vastness. Compact space with bulky furniture will, in contrast, make you feel anxious. That’s why try to use the furniture of proper size. You work in a large office? Order an exclusive granite table. Have an office in a second-story loft? Use a sleek table with no frills. No matter what you choose, make certain that you can easily move around the room without any obstacles.

DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE PLANTS
