4 Ways To Design Your Small ‘Workplace’ At Home
When you work from home, you must organise your work area so that it does not only look appealing to the eye – but also has all the equipment that you need to work comfortably. In other words, your workstation at home should resemble the desk at your business space.
Preferably, it should be located in a secluded part of your home so that you are not distracted. Moreover, you should make the décor and the ambience of your home workstation such that you feel enthusiastic enough to work. Simply put, it should induce you to operate and improve your productivity.
Continuing reading for the simplest methods which you can incorporate into your small home workplace.
Turn an empty corner into a home workplace
Before you start on any step, make sure that you have an appropriate space for working in your home. The living room where your family members are may not be as conducive while working on your bed can make you more lethargic and less productive. Here’s where creating a workspace within your home will be the solution.
Simply convert a small corner into a workplace by installing a modern-looking table with multiple drawers. If the table is long enough, you can put your laptop and specific other equipment on the table itself. You can put paper, written documents, and other similar items in the drawers. A long table also makes movement easier, and you can work comfortably.
Declutter your space
Always a must-do when it comes to setting up a new space or organising your existing workspace – this will remove all sorts of unnecessary items and help keep your place tidy, which contributes to improved productivity. If required, you can even purchase furniture such as ottomans or storage cabinets for extra storage. This will help to keep less frequently used items aside as you focus on your current tasks at hand on a cleaner, tidier work desk.
When you can return to your workspace once the crisis is controlled, you may need to search for an appropriate workspace or switch up your workspace. First things first, ensure that the chosen workspace has proper security in place. Aside from having the cheapest self-storages and workspaces, where sizes range from 6 sqft to 730 sqft and begin at 88 sqft respectively, we also provide round-the-clock camera surveillance as well as accessibility. Meanwhile, you’ll also get to enjoy our flexible lease terms which comes with a short, minimum period of lease and contract transfer to other kinds of available products and services in Work+Store or even our renowned parent company, LHN Group, containing a vast range like pop-up shop venue rental, serviced apartments and offices, event venues, and plenty of other options.
Install the right furniture
The furniture you choose for your home workplace should be practical and professional, similar to how it would be like in an actual workspace. By doing so, it will give off the feel of being in your workplace and boost your work efficiency and productivity. Other factors to look out for when selecting furniture include durability, cost, comfort, and material. Also, try to avoid any furniture with overpowering colours and stick with neutral-coloured ones instead; this will make sure that you are not easily distracted.
Besides making the correct decision on your furniture, you should also do so for your workspace. Besides offering a wide range of locations, our workspaces are fully equipped with basic facilities such as a powerpoint, ample lighting facilities and air conditioning. Make your choice of workspace by looking through our selection of 10 locations, consisting of Kallang, Bukit Merah, Tampines, Bartley, 72 Eunos, 100 Eunos, Upper Thomson, Ang Mo Kio, Pasir Panjang, and Aljunied. If you’re interested in saving as you’ve just started your business, at our Aljunied location, Work+Store has a rent-free offer of 2 months. Do go ahead and contact us if you require more details. Terms and conditions apply.
Put up shelves
Just like how you were initially saving costs on your workspace, it doesn’t just entail choosing a cheap small office space for rent; but your choice of furnishings as well. And the same applies to your personal workspace at home. One possible choice of furniture would be wall-mounted shelves – they don’t only save space, but also add to the overall ambience of the place. This also means you can even place books, table lamps, and even small-sized office equipment on these shelves.
Improved productivity also lies in your workplace once employees can return to work again. Aside from helping businesses lower costs with the cheapest self storages and workspaces, our workspaces can also act as an ancillary office to provide assistance in regards to any other tasks – be it manufacturing or marketing-wise. The two-in-one solution of a workspace and self storage allows for heightened efficiency in logistics processes and goods acquisition to provide better customer service.
Converting a small space in your home into a workstation is not very difficult. All you need to do is select the right furniture with care, keep your space spick and span, organise thoroughly and you’re all set.
The end of Circuit Breaker may be approaching, but it doesn’t mean that the circumstances will return to normal just yet. Once Phase 1 of the Circuit Breaker period begins, some workplaces will resume operations while others will still proceed with the WFH (Work-from-Home) initiative. In the meantime, our spaces – both workspaces and self-storages remain fully operational. Existing tenants will still be given access to these spaces, but are still highly encouraged to comply with the set rules and measures by the government. Meanwhile, whichever group you’ll be a part of, the conclusion still remains the same – we must do our part in keeping ourselves and the people around safe through social distancing and better personal healthcare. So, let us unite and do what we can to control and eventually overcome this crisis!
