With the pandemic changing how we conduct business and regular ‘work life’, many people have changed their routines and continue to work from home. Because you’re spending more time at home in your office, ensuring that it’s comfortable and functional is important. Trying to figure out ways to make your office fit your new work-from-home lifestyle? Here are some tips.
#1: Personalize it.
Your home should be a calm space where you can relax and be yourself. Personalizing your space is one way to express your personality and your unique tastes. Whether you prefer more modern décor, or a mix of retro and traditional, there is really no right or wrong when it comes to making your home what you want it to be. After all – it’s yours! Personalize your home office with whatever is meaningful to you. Family heirlooms, photos of past trips, souvenirs you’ve saved from life, or a comfortable chair that you found at a thrift store a few years ago – design it in a way that inspires you.
#2: Bring in the light.
This last year has been a whirlwind of emotions. That’s why bringing in as much mood-boosting light as you can is key. Consider adding a new skylight to your office space. Does your office have small, outdated windows that are old and energy inefficient? Consider replacing your windows with new, energy efficient ones. New windows will add a greater amount of light to your workspace and make it more cheerful. Not to mention, new windows save energy, which helps cut costs on your utility bill.
#3: Add a door.
Not every home can add a new door that leads to the outside space. But if your space allows, consider how you can add this into your renovation. This is an affordable way to add access to your exterior living space and it also helps bring in fresh air and light! Whether it’s a French door, sliding patio door, or a custom door that is crafted specifically for your space, we can help find the right exterior door for your home.
