7 Easy Changes to Improve Your Home Office

If you’re looking for an entirely new level of revamping your home office? Below, we are taking you through the thought process and sharing tips for how you can lay out your own home office along the way!

Design Your Home Office as You Like It.

Assign a specific room to be the base of operations and (try to) do our work from there each day. It stands to reason that we should make it a room we enjoy being in, and furthermore, a room that gets us in a productive mood.

What’s more, working from home gives you the freedom to create the space you need to do the work you need to do. At home, you can control (at least most of) the features of your surroundings, while in an office, you’ve pretty much just got your desk to design.

What Puts You in A Productive Mood?

That’s a central question to defining your workspace. Perhaps being reminded of your goals – the reason you do this work each day – is enough to get you going, so find a way to remind yourself of those goals at the start of, and throughout, each day.

Organize your Workspace

We all know that baskets are the easiest way to organize your workspace storage setup. From small canvas baskets for pens and staples, to larger woven containers for paper filing, your home office can go from cluttered to stress-free simply by resorting everything into separate baskets.

Chances are good that this trick is old news to you, let’s take things one step further by grouping items with other like items for a more seamless grab-and-go lifestyle. The bottom line? Don’t underestimate the power of organized workspace.

Overhaul Displays to Inspire You

Overhaul Displays to Inspire You

Organization doesn’t just apply to your utilitarian office supplies. Once you’ve nailed down a good system, extend your mission to focus on things that simply inspire you. Those framed photos, knickknacks, pretty vases, clocks and containers may not help get you through your to-do list of priorities each day, but one look at their way and they do offer you the inspiration and creative energy to put your dreams into play.

If you can’t identify the things that trigger a productive mood for you, then you’ll have a tough time improving your workspace on anything more than a cosmetic level.

Play Some Good Music

Get some high-quality speakers attached to your computer and have specific playlists prepared for different kinds of work and concentration levels. It’s been said that listening to music while working and studying gives you a boost in productivity, creativity and memory retention. I know this works like a charm!

Bring in Some Green

Plants are not only aesthetically pleasing, but they convert the toxic gases and stale air into the much more pleasant oxygen. Personally, I would like to keep more than a few besides my desk in the home office. If your home office is next to a garden or a few trees keeping the blinds open is a cheap and effective alternative.

A desk or floor plant is a great way to add a breath of fresh air to your workspace and create some visual variety when your eyes need a break from the screen.

Try a Calming Scent

For some scents can soothe the usual stress of thought blockages and procrastination, resulting in increased focus. Besides having a nice smell, essential oils like lavender and jasmine can actually give you all sorts of great natural boosts. Try a fresh smelling potted herb or plant, or simply add a scented candle. Aromatherapy could be just the trick you need to get your thoughts back on track.
