5 strategies for modernizing and optimizing your office

Remember when you prayed for a snowstorm so you could stay warm and work from home? Or the few sick days faked to avoid the commute to the office.

In today’s environment, remote working has become a norm that companies and employees alike have enthusiastically embraced.

If working from home is now a reality, isn’t it time to abandon your makeshift office and create a space that’s truly adapted to your long working days?

The good news is that there are many ways to make your home workspace a welcoming and productive place. Here are five suggestions for improving your home office.

Understand your needs and preferences

If you’re like most people, your home office is probably furnished with salvaged furniture and accessories found on the move.

While this may have been sufficient when working from home on an occasional basis, a permanent arrangement requires (and deserves!) special attention.

Take the time to think about what makes an ideal working environment for you, both functionally and aesthetically. What kind of atmosphere makes you more productive?

Do you prefer a stimulating environment that fuels your creativity, or a quiet space that encourages reflection?

The more you clarify your vision of the ideal space, the more you’ll be able to create an office that truly meets your needs.

Decluttering for less stress

If you’ve rarely used your home office in the past, it’s likely to have become a receptacle for unused items. If you’ve been working from home for a while, you may be surrounded by a clutter of paperwork and outdated equipment.

A deep clean can be one of the best gifts you can give yourself. A clean space benefits not only your physical health, by reducing the risk of asthma and allergies, but also your mental and emotional well-being.

Numerous studies highlight the benefits of decluttering, including better concentration, increased self-esteem, improved relationships, better quality of life and a general sense of well-being.

Although decluttering can be a challenge, the benefits are well worth the effort. A word of advice? Start by decluttering a single cupboard or drawer, establish a schedule to facilitate regular progress, and incorporate more storage so that every item has its place.

Choose the right seat

Sitting for long hours every day can take its toll on your body. If you use a dining chair or work from your sofa (or even your bed!), you’re opening yourself up to a whole host of problems, from back and shoulder pain to neck and wrist pain.

Ergonomic office chairs are designed to keep your spine in optimum alignment. Health specialists often insist that investing in an ergonomic office chair should be a priority if you regularly work at a desk.

Do you have an old chair that you hold dear? Give it new life with textiles and fabrics from Meubles SGL. It’ll be as good as new!

Think acoustics

The visual aspect is often the first thing that comes to mind when considering the design of a home office, but another element is just as important: acoustics.

If you’ve ever tried to concentrate in a noisy environment, you know what a drag it can be on productivity. Add to this the distractions inherent in working from home, and the importance of keeping your office acoustics under control becomes obvious.

Fortunately, there are many options for optimizing the acoustics of your home office without sacrificing aesthetics. From sound-absorbing floor coverings to ceilings incorporating sound-absorbing elements, the possibilities are almost endless.

If you’re sharing your workspace with someone else, it’s important to create your own space to avoid getting in each other’s way. That’s where movable acoustic partitions come in, absorbing sound where you need it.

Made from innovative, durable materials and available in a wide range of colors, these acoustic solutions are ideal for creating a peaceful, comfortable and attractive working environment.

At SGL Furniture, we have decorative cleat panels that will add a light, Scandinavian visual beauty to any space, while reducing echo and improving the acoustics of your room or workplace.

Incorporate greenery!

A home office isn’t just a place to work. It can also reflect your personality, with personal touches that make it welcoming. Adding houseplants is one of those touches that can make all the difference.

Not only do they purify the air and create a healthier environment, they also reduce stress and improve comfort. And of course, they’re beautiful to look at.

If you’re ready to transform your home office from a makeshift space into a truly optimized place, these suggestions, along with the expertise of SGL Furniture, can help.
