Working from home is great, you don’t have to leave the house early in the morning and return later in the evening, that’s the nice part about it. But just because you are at home and probably don’t work for a boss that comes to check on you every few minutes, it does not mean that your office area should be untidy or even uncomfortable. You will still get guests at your house and do you really want them to think you are an untidy worker?
Home furnishings for the office can be more casual and have softer edges compared to traditional office furnishings. Think about how your home functions and look for items that complement your current furniture when choosing office furnitures. Desks, for example, should incorporate both comfort and functionality. The same applies to shopping for a chair. Consider how much time you will spend in the chair. How many hours a day will you work in that chair? A more comfortable chair is a smart investment when you need to spend all day at a home office computer desk.
5) Plan on peaks and valleys – During the first year of starting your small business, make sure you have enough working capital or cash reserves to cover fixed expenses.
For this, all you have to do is taking out a little money from your pocket. By doing this, you just avoid splurging money for a new furniture. Let us see how we can turn our old reception counters into brand new piece of office furniture.
If you have children you will not have to pay for daycare services or a babysitter. You can work from home when your children are still sleeping or take an afternoon nap. Perhaps your child or children are in school. You will now be home in the morning and afternoon when they need you. If you had a childcare expense you will no longer have to pay for that bill. Many times working out of the home costs more if you have children due to daycare/babysitter expenses.
This is one piece of office furniture worth spending money on. Buy an ergonomically designed chair that offers good back support. That way, you can work for long periods of time without fatigue.
No matter what you do for a living, keeping things simple wont make living complex work. No rules, or wrong ways about it, everyone is different, but one thing Office Zen can show that we all have in common is to be happy.
