This year, we have had to all change our lives. Holidays have been cancelled, large gatherings have stopped and many of us have been asked to work from home. For a lot of people this is the first time ever that they have worked from home. It is a lot to get used to – going from working in an office to working from home every day is quite a culture shock.
Something that a lot of people have struggled with when working from home is finding a space to work in that is away from the hustle and bustle of family life. Having a lot going on around you that is not linked to work can be very distracting and not good for productivity.
If you are going to be working from home long term, here are some ways that you can create a bit of extra space to work from in your home…
Create a Corner Office – A corner of a room can be a good place for an office. Use a quiet space like a bedroom – if you have a large attic bedroom for example, this can be a great place to put an office. Use a room divider to separate the space from the living area.
Use the Alcove Under the Stairs – The area under the stairs is a great space to make a little office. Storage is important in small places like this as you don’t want it to feel too cluttered visit Rackzone shelving Ireland for some handy shelving solutions that will fit right in under the stairs.
