Furnishing Your Home Office

Aug 17, 2007
Before you start furnishing your home office, you need to realize how this decision is going to affect your life. You need to know that no matter how hard you try to distance your professional life from your personal one, it is just not possible. It would be best for you to blend your professional and personal life and make it work in harmony. It is very convenient to work from home, irrespective of whether you are telecommuting or running a business from your home. But, it is very important that you project a professional image. This is important so that your customers know that you are a serious and competent businessman. You should print business cards and get personalized stationery. This adds to the overall professional image of your home based office.

Be comfortable

As in every office, you will be spending a lot of time in your home office. Even though it is based at home, it is your office and needs to be professional, yet comfortable at the same time. It is important that the furnishing you chose for your office is comfortable. If you are not comfortable in your office, you will not be able to work effectively and efficiently. You are in charge of the furnishing and decoration of your home office, so you can ensure that it is comfortable yet stylish.

Choose the perfect chair

The chair that you chose would be the most important decision you make for your home office. There are a wide variety of chairs available in the market. It is possible to find a chair that offers good support and yet suits your office decor. You need to find a chair that offers comfort to the user. The chair could have a cushioned seat for comfort. Many chairs have a lot of adjustable features, from adjustable height and adjustable armrests to adjustable back support. Making the right adjustments is essential to get the right posture. The right posture is the key to increase in productivity and decreased back strain and injury. You can also get a chair that has adjustable neck support. Once you have chosen the right chair for yourself, you can match it in color and fabric to the rest of your office decor. Make sure that your chair is a good investment, as you do not want to spend your time and energy on replacing your chair.

Desk

Your workstation or desk is also an important piece of furniture in your home office. This is where you will be sitting and doing most of your work, from handling correspondence to making phone calls. This will be the hub of activity in your home office. You need to choose a desk according to the availability of space. It should not be too large, as this will leave no place for other furniture and neither should it be too small, to make it look disorganized. Your desk could be fixed or mobile and it could also accommodate your computer equipment, depending on your need.

Get the right kind of storage

Storage is more than just having a filing cabinet to put your files in. You could use shelves, racks and bins as a part of your storage solution.

Get organized

It is important to be organized and disciplined in your home office. There is a lot of flexibility in a home office, but that does not mean you should slacken. Get an organizer if need be, to help you plan your work and other activities. It will help you to work effectively and efficiently.
