Know More About My Home Office
Home offices are very common and in almost every home we design and create, we schedule them. For work-from-home business owners, home offices are built for personal use and some serve both. For many, particularly in today’s business world of telecommuting, the home office has become a necessity and a comfort. For more info visit site.
THINGS TO Remember while your home office is planning
The office’s look and feel should fit with the house’s current flavour. Some people just throw a desk into a space and a few file drawers. It gets cluttered then and it really doesn’t build a comfortable atmosphere to work in. The furniture in your office should complement what is in your house’s other rooms.
In that space, there should be enough room for what you want to achieve. For the workspace, I like either a L or U form configuration. I want to have built-ins to hide the rest of the equipment as well. Lots of drawers for files and storage are a must. If the office is primarily used for fun, then I like to buy a unique desk and set it up centre stage on an area rug for display/storage with built-ins to the side.
Decisions must be taken if the room is to be used as a “dual purpose” room. I installed Murphy Beds in a trendy wardrobe and stored computer equipment so that the room could function as a guest bedroom. I would suggest a private bathroom and a closet that can provide storage for office staples and clothing for the guest if this is your intention, and space / budget permits.
Some individuals want their offices to act as a personal “hang out” as well. Many prefer to have a focal point, such as a window wall to look at a mountain view (which is what I have), a fireplace, or a built-in bookcase featuring memories from a favourite holiday spot with loved ones, collections or treasurers. It’s important to surround yourself with your favourite things, I feel.
Create a room of comfort. It is a must to buy an ergonomic chair! Any of the offices I design and decorate feature either two chairs or a small sofa in the sitting room. A flat-screen TV and piped music are also installed in most offices.
A must is the proper colour scheme. Color may have an influence on the mood you are in. Green, blue or neutral are good colours to choose from. You may use other more vibrant colours, such as red, yellow or purple, as accents. Green is soothing, earthy and eye-friendly. The most versatile colour is blue, which is also soothing and relaxing. Red activates, yellow energises and the imagination will pull out purple.
Another must is lighting. It is very important to have overhead and task lighting, not only to function properly, but to create a pleasant atmosphere. I want to put a dimmer switch on my lights. I like to have a ceiling fan as well – it also helps to keep the equipment cooler. Make sure that you have mounted enough electrical outlets for all the equipment that will be used. I make sure to hide all of the wires while I custom design the furniture.
Custom framed cork boards (they now come in all colours) or custom framed white or black boards may be a good idea to hang on the wall to keep track of tasks and schedules for the full time home office.
