Home Office Tips

So many of us are spending more and more time working from home these days, so there has never been a better time to revamp your home office. Whether you want to impress your colleagues during your video conference call or simply want a more comfortable working space, improving your home office will improve your happiness and productivity. Our real estate agents love creating beautiful home offices, and they've been compiled a list of tips for giving your working space a refresh: 

  1. Start With a Fresh Coat of Paint
    If you're going to spend a lot of time staring at your office's four walls, then you might as well give them a nice coating of paint. Just be sure to go with a professional tone. Lighter colors will ultimately reflect more light and make your room appear larger. Consider what colors would work with your office furniture and that you'd like to see while working. For inspiration, check out home office colors in some of these Belleville homes for sale.

  2. Personalize Your Desk
    Your desk should always match your personality. If you enjoy looking at things that bring you joy, add your favorite picture frame, decor, or books. By surrounding yourself with things that inspire you, you can improve your mental health and increase your overall productivity.

  3. Maximize Your Lighting
    Lighting can have a major impact on your mind and health, which is why it's incredibly important to make sure your office is well-lit. If your home office doesn't receive enough natural light through windows, you should think about adding supplemental solar or LED lighting. 

  4. Find The Perfect Desk
    Desks come in all shapes, sizes, and styles, so it's important to find one that not only looks good but also makes you the most comfortable. If your job requires a lot of paperwork, you'll likely want to get one with a large surface. Adjustable desks can also provide you with the option to sit or stand, which can benefit your health and posture. When it comes to style, traditional wooden desks can create a classic office look, while white glass top desks can create a more modern vibe.

  5. Don't Forget The Chair
    If you're going to splurge on anything for your home office, make it your office chair! A comfortable office chair can make all the difference in the world. Make sure to invest in an ergonomic model that fits your body size. It should have both a headrest and armrests and be capable of rotating 360 degrees.

  6. Add Additional Storage
    Even though we're living in a mostly paperless world, adequate storage space still comes in handy. Plus, it helps you convey a professional and put-together feel in your workspace. Add some nice bookcases, filing cabinets, or office supply bins so you can keep all of your items organized.

Creating a comfortable place to work inside your home has never been more important. Contact us today for more tips on how to make the most out of your home office.
