Before you go and spend hundreds of dollars on furniture for your work space, look around the house for tables, chairs, shelves, area rugs and other items that could be repurposed or used as-is in your home office environment. After you’ve explored all your in-home options, then you can narrow down your shopping list to one or two key pieces.
While it’s great to enjoy the conveniences of working from your home, it is important to have a a space that helps you shift into work mode. An organized office space with shelving and drawers can help carry that structured office environment into your own space and keep your professionalism on point.
Comfort is a huge plus of working from home, but it doesn’t have to be limited to furniture. Decorating and accessorizing your space to make you comfortable and keep the creative (and productive) juices flowing is key. Change a wall color. Re-arrange furniture. Or do something as simple as having a favorite coffee mug or knick-knack on your desk. The space is yours, so make sure you are comfortable in it.
