We can help! Here are some things to consider:

Home Office Location

With a bit of thought and ingenuity, nearly any area of your home can be turned into a home office. This could include a spare bedroom, part of an unfinished basement, or even extra space in your garage. However, there are some important elements that still need to be considered when choosing the right spot. How well does the area receive a WiFi signal? Will it provide enough space to suit your workplace style and all of your office supplies? How close is it to high-traffic areas in the home that you may find distracting? These are all questions that must be carefully examined before picking a location.  

Lighting

With no commute or excuse to grab lunch with a coworker, you may sit indoors all day long. The perfect skylight, bay window, or artificial light can add much-needed brightness and sunshine into your work experience. Great lighting does more than positively affect your mood. It can also increase productivity, make the space appear larger. Not to mention, nice lighting will make you look and feel your best for every Zoom meeting.  

Storage

Convenience and proper organization will be key in your home office. Were there storage solutions in your old office or cubicle that you really loved? Things you found cumbersome or difficult to use?
