Whether you have set up your home office in the spare room, a corner of the lounge, or you’re fortunate enough to have a dedicated room for this use, it’s important to have organised systems so your work doesn’t encroach on living areas, and vice versa.
I believe the minimum requirements for an efficient and effective home office are:
1. Good working desk
2. Comfortable chair
If you’re going to be sitting at your desk for any length of time, do invest in a good supporting chair. Your back will thank you.
3. Cupboards / Shelving / Filing Cabinet
It’s essential you have an area where you can store everything, from files to resource material and stationery items.
Once your office is created the systems you put in place will make all the difference to your productivity and the pleasure you’ll take in working in the space.
