How To Create A Great Workspace At Home


How to make homeworking work for you

Millions of people have been working from home over the last 12 months, and they will continue to do so, perhaps permanently for some. 

Yes, some companies are really embracing the working from home trend, and you might be one of the employees who have been told you can carry on doing that for the foreseeable. 

If you are, you may need a better workspace that you currently have, say for instance if you have been lying on a bed with your laptop. 

Find the right space for it and create the right atmosphere in it, like this:

French / Patio / Bi-Folding Doors

How nice is it to have longer, sunnier days now that spring has finally sprung! Bring in that extra brightness and pretty colours with the installation of French, patio or bi-folding doors. 

Within your work area, choose a spot for the doors that connects it to the outdoors, because you can then also use them to let fresh air infiltrate the space during those extra warm days.

In the summer, it will almost give you the feel of working outside.

Roof Lantern / Skylight

If the fitting of French, patio or bi-folding doors won’t work, maybe the installation of a roof lantern or skylight will! 

They will establish a gorgeous glass covering, one that’s virtually uninterrupted by framework as they are amazingly slender and practically unnoticeable.

The sun will power through this glass, but without overheating the space as energy efficient glazing is used. It will be the lightest and brightest spot in the house.

Home Office Extension

Many homes are being extended with home offices since the pandemic took hold, and a dedicated workspace is definitely worth thinking about. 

You could have it designed exactly how you like, and ask for French, patio or bi-folding doors fitted, or the aforementioned roof lantern or skylight. 

You may well find that having a proper workspace will encourage you to work even harder than you would in a makeshift work area.
