Home Office Ideas that Will Inspire Productivity

Home Office Ideas to Inspire Productivity

With a shift in the number of people who now work remotely, or for those of us who have home offices, we’re seeing an uptick in interest to improve that work environment. Not only does a home office need to be a place to complete essential work tasks, it also needs to feel comfortable, visually appealing, inspiring, and efficient. Having a streamlined place to work can boost your mood and improve your workflow. At The Closet Works, we can help you turn your home office space into a place you’ll want to get busy in – for work, creativity and improved effectiveness. Our team can help with your custom office design, but first consider a few ideas to get started:

Build In Lots of Storage

Maintaining an office space is much easier if you have a place to put important papers, projects and files. If you want to make the best use of your dedicated office space, a great option is to consider the many creative ways you can organize. A good first step is to think about built-in options. From custom cabinetry to handy cubbies, storage makes many work tasks easier. You can not only have quick access, but also an inviting place to get work done is important. Our designers can help you think through your office storage needs, including those special custom features.

Consider Often-Used Accessories to Maximize Productivity

What’s often overlooked are ways to boost added features in a custom office. Shelves, drawers, racks, and more– are all necessary additions to suit virtually any home office. This maximizes available space for efficiency, so you can store more items smartly and have them in reach, especially when you need them in a hurry. A last-minute conference call or a need to put your hands on work documents during a meeting require careful organization.

Pick a Color to Set the Tone

Choosing the correct colors for your work space is vital because it impacts how you feel in that room. Though it seems like it might be easy, choosing colors can be daunting. Consider the effect that a color palette might have on your mood. You’ll also want to take into account how colors will look with your chosen lighting and desk/office furniture. With over 90 different color choices in The Closet Works collection, you’re sure to find one that appeals to your personality and tastes.

Know When to Separate Your Home Office from Home

When your commute to work is nonexistent, it can blur the lines between work and home life balance. It’s easy to spend more time in your home office when you can easily move to a kitchen space for a bite to eat, or move outside to enjoy fresh air in the privacy of your own backyard. Having the ability to work from home is not only convenient, but it can be consuming. According to Fast Company, “the past few years have produced conclusive evidence that employees who spend a bulk of their working hours outside of the office are vastly happier and more productive.” That’s good news! But we still need to know when to close the door to our office and transition back to our family life.
