Working from home has become very common, especially in the last year with the Covid-19 pandemic. The confinement, preventive measures to avoid contagion and the awareness that has been created in society have led to this. It has been demonstrated that both for companies and for the workers themselves, remote work can be a very interesting, feasible and economical option. And, of course, it is also safe.
That is why many people are considering creating a home office to be able to work more comfortably, that is why at Emuca we want to offer you a series of tips that you should take into account to design the perfect home office.
How to design a functional office: logically organize your space
To design a home office, it is essential to take into account the space you have available in order to be able to distribute all the necessary elements in it with maximum comfort and practicality. Making a sketch makes the task much easier, as you can include all the aspects to be borne in mind, such as where the electricity and water outlets are…
Another extremely important factor is to make the best possible use of natural light sources. That way you will create a warmer, more spacious and comfortable environment.
Now is also the time to study the possibility of changing or modifying the structural elements that can help us to achieve a better design, as well as changing, for example, windows or doors for sliding doors.
And, last but not least, you must be very clear about the style you want the office to have and adapt all the elements accordingly.
Must-haves for office design
Everyone has their own priorities as to what they specifically need to achieve the best functionality in their home office, but even so, there are some elements that are essential and that, under no circumstances, should be left out:
Which desk to choose when designing a home office
The working hours can be longer than expected, especially if we work from home, where the hours pass more quickly, and we feel more at ease. For this reason, it is necessary to change position throughout the day, so that the body does not suffer any physical consequences.
The desk is essential for correct posture and with a motorized desk you can work sitting or standing, as the height of the desk can be adapted to suit your needs.
If you don’t have enough room in the space you have at your disposal, don’t worry! At Emuca we provide a solution for all your projects and we offer you a folding desk stand. At the end of the working day, it can be folded up again to save space.
You need a computer stand
Another essential fitting that cannot be missing in the design of a home office is the monitor stand. This should also be adjustable, so that it can be adapted to the adequate height and position of each worker.
Find space for office drawers
Working from home has its benefits, but most people don’t have enough space to design a huge office with all the necessary elements. That’s why having functional drawers with plenty of space to store all kinds of things is essential to provide plenty of storage space.
If you are designing a home office, don’t forget to include these essential fittings. You should also include wheels in the furniture, all kinds of connectors, whether individual or multiple and, of course, LED lighting elements that provide clarity and adequate visibility for a workstation.
