Home Improvement – A Home Office

As someone who commuted to an Office job fifty miles away for nearly forty years I find the idea of an Office within the home totally and utterly brilliant. Sadly it would have been impossible in my day but with today’s advancement in technology and the ability to do things we could never have dreamed of just a few years ago it is an ideal for anyone wanting to get out of the so called rat race and working from home.

Before you do decide to work from home bear in mind the various distractions that can so easily occur.  Is the refrigerator far enough away to stop an incessant march to and fro for a diet drink or to just grab a bite to eat? Does the thought of watching the first mornings play at Lords seem more attractive than that urgent budget forecast you were doing for a client?

If clients are not on the agenda then life will be much easier and the spare room, sorry, new office, can start to take shape as soon as you have made a few decisions regarding the allocation of space. But before that there are several ergonomically factors to be considered such as heat, light and noise. Basically your office has to be in a fairly quiet environment. Too much noise will simply be a distraction. As we already mentioned there has to be a window in the room and the light should be enough so the screens are easily readable without glare but are not so dark that eyestrain will be a factor. An adjustable desk lamp is a necessity. As far as warmth is concerned it seems obvious but the room should not be too hot or too cold. Some of the machines will emit warmth simply by being turned on.

Your office has to have the basic desk, a very comfy chair, computer, fax machine, printer, separate phone to the main house one and possibly a shredder. Consideration should also be given to a filing cabinet (dont believe all you hear about paperless offices) plus a few shelves. Obviously all this depends on the space available but must be thought about before anything is ordered. Cabling and wiring also has to be given consideration. Oh yes and a waste paper basket for good measure.
