Working from home has become an integral part of our lives. But how can we make sure that the home environment does not distract us, but on the contrary, energizes us and increases our productivity? Let's figure out how to set up a home office that will become your personal source of productivity.

Perhaps the most important stage is creating a workspace that takes care of your health. To do this, carefully choose adjustable-height tables and ergonomic chairs with an S-shaped back that will support your posture and relieve the tension. Try to find models with synchronous mechanisms that will adapt to your body position. Do not forget about feet and keyboard stands to reduce stress on your back and joints.

The right color palette

Surround yourself with colors that stimulate your work. Of course, this is a very delicate and subjective issue. But as numerous studies show, light and neutral shades will give a feeling of spaciousness and tranquility, blue and green color palettes will reduce anxiety and improve concentration, dosed yellow will support and set a positive mood even on cloudy days, and bright juicy accents, such as turquoise or coral, will increase motivation and energy. At the same time, it is better to avoid dark, earthy and all sorts of "dirty" colors, as they will depress and lead to apathy.

High-quality lighting

Try to organize your home office in a room with plenty of natural light. Ideally, place the table near a large window so that the light falls from the opposite side of the writing hand, or directly in front of the window itself so that it illuminates your face. For artificial lighting, it is worth choosing lamps with soft, diffused light, which is much more favorable for work. It will also be very useful to experiment with design here: a small extravagant or simply unusual lamp will add a playful mood, make the interior more stylish, and will not let its owner get bored.

A corner table is a great option for functional zoning. It will be very convenient for working with two monitors, additional equipment or a large amount of paper. So you can conveniently keep everything you need at hand and not drown in disorder. The only nuance is the dimensions of such a table, which will be slightly larger than a regular rectangular one.

System in everything

The order on the table - the order in the head. Provide yourself with enough storage space for documents, stationery and personal belongings. Use pedestals, drawers, shelves and organizers - preferably both with open and closed doors, to maintain visual aesthetics even in the midst of working chaos.

Hanging shelves are perfect for a small room, and a bookcase will provide convenient storage for your home library, it will also help to zone the space if your office is combined with another room.

Softening elements

In addition to functional furniture, you can add a soft chair or couch to your home office. This will help to avoid excessive severity and coldness of the interior, and will also become a convenient place for reading, relaxing or short breaks from work.

The upholstery can be in the same tone as the main furniture, or contrasting, to bring freshness and color. Also, do not forget about tactile sensations: velor, velvet, leather or plush will not only look spectacular but will also give you many cozy evenings.

Materials

When choosing materials for a home office, it is important to find a balance between functionality and aesthetics. A wooden tabletop will add warmth and comfort, while a glass tabletop will visually enlarge the space and add airiness to it. Metal furniture elements will look appropriate in the workspace and set you in a serious mood. The main thing is to rely on your temperament and type of activity, perhaps, over a solid mahogany table you will prefer a glass orange one, which will inspire you to the most creative solutions.
