When you work from home, it can feel like you can never separate your work life from your relaxing life. Working in the kitchen next to cooking your dinner. Or in bed. If you can create a space that is dedicated to working, you will up your productivity - because there is only one thing to do in that space.

Some people don’t have the room to have a separate office, so they set up what they need in their bedroom. A little upgrade of the furniture around you will do wonders for how you feel about the room. Using to get some gorgeous furniture is ideal.

Think about what it is you do. Do you do everything on a single computer? Are you in the creative arts and need space to draw and create? Arrange the area accordingly. Try to use the walls as much as possible for things like pin boards and even flat storage space for notebooks and stationery. Some people can keep things organizers - others can’t. If you are the latter, then think about getting some extra organizational storage to keep everything under control.


You are the main ingredient to make this work. Your personality should be the main thing in your office space. Look to incorporate the things that make you, you. If you need a lot of motivation when you are working - take that into account and place things that you find motivational around the walls. If you are goal setting person, have images of what your goals are - this will keep you focused even on the days you don’t feel like working.


A messy desk can only work for so long. You need to make sure that you are staying on top of the cleaning and decluttering. Papers, pen lids, notebooks you aren’t using… countless things that end up in a pile on the desk. Although many people say that they can work happily in a mess, if it were to be cleaner - they might just find themselves more productive.


Staring at a screen all day, or concentrating on fine details is a workout for the eyes. In order to help them out a little, make sure that you place your workspace somewhere that has a lot of light. Of course, always looking to avoid direct sunlight on your desk - because that can be equally frustrating. You can combine task lighting, natural daylight, and accent lighting to make those long hours much lighter on the eyes.


Consider this your most significant financial spend. The seat that you choose should be comfortable, with excellent lumbar support. If you intend to spend hours at your desk, then you should be able to do it as comfortable as possible.

Think of office space, or dedicated workspace as something that is purely for work and you will see your productivity rocket.
