Summer temperatures are finally starting to cool, which means school is just around the corner and if your kids are heading back to college their summer room will soon be empty. While you could use this as a guest bedroom, why not enhance its usefulness by creating a home office/workspace. Don’t worry, you don’t have to lose a bedroom to gain an office, with a little creative thinking you can have the best of both worlds.
Working With Your Space
While it would be wonderful to dedicate an entire room to a home office, chances are you probably still want the option of having a spare guest room. To conserve space get an upright desk where you can store items vertically, or utilize corner spaces with an L-shape or corner desk. Try and keep with the existing style of the room by getting desk furniture that either matches the room’s design style and color palette. Don’t forget to invest in a good office chair. If you’re going to spend hours at your home office you’ll want a comfortable ergonomic chair that is as comfortable as it is functional.
Let There Be Light!
Your home office should not resemble a miserable cubicle you don’t want to work at. It’s an extension of your home, and should feel relaxed and welcoming. One way to make your home office more enjoyable is to make sure it’s well lit. Try positioning the desk by a window or setting up room lights and table lamps. Not only will this make your home office more welcoming it will also reduce eye-strain and headaches. If windows aren’t an option try putting up inspiring or bright-colored art to give the office a relaxing glow.
Keep It Clean
To keep your home office a relaxed and stress-free zone it’s important to keep it clean and organized. Keep file drawers handy for important papers or mount floating shelves for easy access. Keep your computer cords neat and bundling up, and be sure to the use cord ports that come standard in most desks. Remember, while you’re transforming the room into a fresh office space be sure to contact Callbox Storage for all your self-storage needs.
