Updating your home to make it more relaxing while ensuring it’s still a good place for remote work seems challenging initially. That’s especially true if you tend to have an always-on mentality when your workplace is only a few steps away.
However, it’s possible to make your home both a haven and a productive workplace with the right approach. Here are some updates that support relaxation and remote work, courtesy of Robert Ancill at TNI Design.
Create an Inspiring Home Office
Having a distinct work area in your home helps you limit distractions and keep your work organized while maintaining a better work-life balance. Since that’s the case, redecorating a space and turning it into an inspiring home office is a wise move – and it might even be tax deductible!
One easy way to begin is with paint. Specific colors have productivity-boosting benefits, so choose one that creates the right feel in the space. Whether you paint the whole room or focus on a single accent wall is up to you. As long as the hue is visible, it can help.
When it comes to office furniture, make ergonomics a priority so that you remain comfortable and reduce your odds of certain injuries. Invest in desktop and drawer organizers, too, making it easier to keep everything in its proper place. Get a low-maintenance plant to add some life and freshness, and add a family photo to help you make ethical decisions.
