You may be working home and wondering how you can possibly work from home with kids or remain productive with the endless number of distractions. You may find that the key is in how you set up your home office.

 Working from home has brought more discussion in recent times over whether working from home or at the work office is better. As this discussion has been active for a while, a Harvard Business Review Study explains the benefits of working from home.

Alongside the advantages of working from home, you need to understand and practice better ways of increasing your throughput while working from home.  Below are ways to plan and design your extra space in your living room or that extra room, making it an office and maximize your results.

Set Your Work Area Away From Distractions

In you have an extra room in your home place, it eases the pressure of working at home. Your plans of working from home can be interfered with by distractions, especially if you’re working from the common area. A working place that attracts gatherings will often distract you, making you lose concentration and negatively affect your productivity. Designating that room to be your office will improve your morale working from home

Living alone compared to living with your family is more comfortable with fewer distractions when it comes to working from home.

Get the Necessary Supplies to Maximize Productivity

All conditions must be favorable to attain the best yield while working from home. In addition to having a quiet office, you should ensure that the furniture and other requirements do not make you less productive. A small monitor, together with a rigid and uncomfortable chair, can make it difficult for you to focus and therefore render you unproductive.

Amount to invest in your office

You may lack enough funds for advanced office design, but you can always employ other measures to work smart. You should set up a budget that suits your pocket without strain and also prioritize the below issues.

  • A right mouse and a keyboard. A perfect mouse can save enough time for you.
  • A working monitor that is big enough to be easily viewed, well fixed on a table, and a reasonable distance from your head.
  • A chair that provides comfort and back support
  • A desk that neatly fits your work tools and leaves room for a workspace

Be Purposeful on the Setup

After coming up with the perfect furniture, which will guarantee a fantastic work set up, the next thing is how to implement the plan and achieve a purposeful setup. The setting should be appealing to you, and you should place items how you want them. For instance,  you should place a clock somewhere that is easy to see but not somewhere it will distract you or take up space from something with a higher priority.

The position of the windows will affect your desk setup because, if placed facing the window, then sunlight could interfere with your ability to see your monitor. Finally, a clean and tidy workplace can make a big difference in increased focus and reduced stress.

Try Getting Sunlight

If you have an area with sufficient sunlight, it will be an added advantage. Working from an inner office can make it challenging to get sufficient sunlight compared to someone that works outside or near windows.

Sunlight benefits our health and can inspire us to do our best work. At times it becomes boring doing the same thing repeatedly from Monday to Friday. Having a sunny window nearby can help alleviate lethargy and boredom, which is useful to the company and your overall productivity.

Conclusion

In conclusion, deciding to work from home or office is hard for most people. But if your circumstances support working from home, then go for it and employ the above tips to increase your productivity and remain or become a top employee to your employer.
