Mistakes to Avoid When Making Your Home Office

Woman has an important phone call in her well furnished home office

So you’re thinking about working from home, and want to know what you need to make your own home office? Well, you’re certainly not alone, as 5.2 percent of people in the U.S now work from home, up from 3.3 percent two decades ago. That’s over 8 million people! However, the same way an employer may think about the layout of the office to increase productivity, you’ll need to make those same considerations when making your own office. Mistakes can make you uncomfortable, less inspired, and even make you less productive in the long run. Here are just a few of the mistakes you’ll want to avoid as you craft your home office:

#1. Treating it like a traditional office

Just because it’s an office, doesn’t mean it has to be bland and uncomfortable like one. There’s no reason why adding a little color and personality to your space shouldn’t be allowed; on the contrary, making your space personal can lead to more productive and creative work sessions. You’ll also need to consider comfort, since you’ll be by yourself for extended periods of time. A home office should be just that—a mix between a home and an office. We have a number of options for your work space, so be sure to check out our options to see what works best for you and your style.

#2. Not Getting Away From Distractions

The worst thing you can do when considering your home office is to not make a space for yourself. Trying to have your office in the kitchen or dining room, for example, will just lead to distractions and loss of productivity. Try to find a small space to yourself that you can use, or even use the guest room from time to time when you don’t have any guests. Just make sure you have a place you can be left alone for extended periods, so your family and friends don’t drive you crazy when you try to work. 

#3. Ignoring Storage

Anyone who’s worked in a traditional office knows that a lot of work often means a lot of paperwork and items you’ll need to keep track of. The same goes for your home office, but this is often neglected or is an afterthought for most people considering a home office. Always make sure you consider storage, because clutter can lead to lost productivity because you can’t find what you need in a sea of papers and sticky notes. In addition to chairs, desks, and lighting, we also have a number of storage options to fit your design and storage needs.
