How to Make the Ultimate Home Office
The ultimate home office starts with the right desk. A desk that offers you enough space to get your work done while looking beautiful in your home office. With office space moving from skyscrapers to our bedrooms, making the most out of your space suddenly becomes a priority for millions of people working from home.
Keep Distractions to a Minimum
Visual clutter can lead to psychological distraction. Keeping cables and other miscellaneous objects from cluttering up your line of sight can help you keep a clear mind and be better focused on tasks. That’s one of the reasons we’re such a big fan of Qi wireless charging. Not only does it charge your critical devices so you never miss an important call, but it also removes the need for cables running everywhere. A desk with a charging station can make a big difference in simplifying your life.
Fenlo’s Future charging desk with USB ports and an outlet makes the perfect addition to any home office. With this modern mid century desk, you can declutter your space and better focus on your work.
Do your best to set both physical and psychological boundaries to your space. This can be tough in a home office, but setting clear boundaries can really help break up the day between work and home.
Designate one specific space where you get your work done. Try not to work in different locations, so you can build associations with that space as your “job” area. It may be tempting to do some tedious paperwork while laying in bed, but resist the temptation and keep your working hours confined to that predetermined space.
Setting psychological boundaries is just as important as setting up physical ones. Start working at the same time each day. You can even get dressed like you're going into the office if it helps you get into the right mindset. Maybe go for a walk to get some fresh air before you start the day, what matters is you do something to signal to your brain that the work day has started and you're no longer really at home.
Once the work day is done, make sure to log off and turn off notifications if you can. Just like starting the day right is important, having a clear cut-off point for when the day ends is critical to your well-being. Continuing to work past your prescribed hours can blur the boundaries between work and the rest of your life and lead to feelings of stress and overwhelm.
Be Kind to Your Eyes
Keep eye strain to a minimum by having the right lighting in your work environment. Poor lighting can lead to eye strain, headaches, fatigue, and even make it harder to concentrate on the task at hand. Relying on overhead lighting might not be bright enough or focused enough for what you're working on. That’s why we recommend warm light LED lights close to your work surface. The more you can position your light the better you’ll be able to illuminate your work.
The lighting provided by the built-in LED lamp in Fenlo Future is also ideal for Zoom and other video calls. You won’t have any harsh shadows or overexposed colors to deal with, the positioning of the light provides the ideal placement for even neutral lighting so you look your best during important meetings.
Try and buy furniture that’s easy to put together. The last thing you want is to introduce more stress into your life by struggling to put together the tools and equipment you need to be successful. Browse online reviews for any furniture you plan on buying and check whether anyone else had trouble with the assembly.
Because of all the reasons we’ve outlined above, we recommend the Fenlo Future Charging Desk for its space-saving and multi-functional design. You’ll be able to charge all your devices while reclaiming some space in these changing times. With work from home looking like it’s here to stay, invest in yourself and buy a high-quality desk that you can depend on and that will last for years to come.
