When you have a remote work office — and nowadays, a lot of people can be counted among those who have been put in a position of needing to have such a space — it’s almost normal to realize that this is somewhere you will be spending many hours of your working day out of necessity.
The thing about a remote work office is that since you’ll be there so often, the space must be both comfortable and somewhere you can get work done.
Of course, if you are relatively new to working remotely, one thing that you may not have considered is the seating — you might have just grabbed the first chair you saw.
That chair might have been good at first, but it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to be a good chair for the long run.
When you’re considering seating, you have to think about the kind of chair that will be comfortable for hours at a time and possibly can move about, as you may need to access different parts of your desk with less effort.
2. Add A Whiteboard Or Chalkboard
Though you may think of a whiteboard or a chalkboard as being just related to an office environment where several people or more can be found, there is good room in your remote work office for them.
This is the case even when you’re going to be the only person working there — and it’s good because it allows you to organize thoughts properly and plan out what needs doing.
One of the most important things is to be and stay healthy when you are working in your remote work environment, and one way you can do this is to set aside part of your office for having window access.
As nice as indoor lighting is, it’s important to get some sunshine access and, if possible fresh air from the outside.
Of course, taking an actual walk outdoors would be better, but in the absence of that, having at least the window available to you is a good close second.
When you’re working from a remote office environment, it’s a good idea to have the walls, and other surfaces (if possible) shaded a nice blue to foster a better environment for you to work.
As far as colors go, blue is a good one for you in terms of productivity, particularly when you combine it with teal as a color on the side — rather, to use both blue and teal as colors for your home office.
One of the most important things that you can have going on for you in an office environment is the lighting — and though the lighting in a typical large office is taken care of by a building administrator, having it in your remote office is up to you.
This sometimes means that you have to upgrade the lighting you have in the area where you will have your workspace — as the lighting in a room might be good for everyday use but not for working at a desk for hours at a time.
There are many benefits to having plants in your working environment, which carries over to your remote work environment.
Plants add oxygen to the air and make for a more pleasant environment, generally speaking.
Lastly, think about something that you will be regularly using and put that one thing slightly out of reach.
The point of doing this is that you’re going to be sitting for long stretches of time and if you can make it so that you have to get up now and then and stretch.
