Chances are you already have your home office set up by now, but that doesn’t mean it’s perfect. You might have a haphazard set up that needs reorganising, or a new idea to make your work from home situation easier and more productive. In this post we look at some of the ways you can do this and how to get started. 

WiFi and Connectivity 

This is a big consideration when setting up your home office. You need a strong Internet connection that won’t let you down during important meetings and conversations. The type of router you choose and Internet deal you buy will determine how reliable it is. 

If you’re working from a studio room or multiple occupancy apartment a single router should be enough to cover the room with a solid connection. If you need to cover more rooms of the house or you have more people using it you may need more bandwidth. 

An Adequate Desk

Although working from home is usually more comfortable and convenient than a stuffy office, you’re not on holiday. It’s good to remind yourself of this by arranging a desk that’s functional and that makes you feel as if you’re at work.

These days there are several options for you to choose from. If you only need a desk for sitting a computer on then a standard one is fine; other jobs, however, might require you to stand or move around. Consider a standing desk or a lap desk for your convenience and productivity, check your computer is in good order with homuten computer repair.

Power Sources 

Working from home means more time in the house with your computer and devices on. Moreover you probably have other family members working from home too, and their devices also need to be charged. This is an issue that needs solved from the start to avoid arguments and lost clients.  

Invest in a powerstrip for your home or home office. This is a unit that has many power outlets and USB ports. It can sit in the front room or hall and act as a hub extension for all your family’s power needs. 

Tea and Coffee

It’s important to stay motivated throughout your working day and there’s no better way to do this than a tea or coffee break. Whether you like to have a hot mug of coffee at your desk or a break in a separate room it’s worth investing in a quality mug and kettle. 

You want a mug that’s large enough to satisfy your tea or coffee capacity, you don’t want to continually leave your job to boil the kettle – it’s wasteful and inefficient. Try to get a mug that also stores heat well. For a kettle it’s best to get one that’s fast boiling and eco friendly. 

Light Levels

One aspect of the home office people tend to overlook is the light levels. The lighting in your home office can affect your mood and productivity, especially in the winter. You may not want a main light on all the time, it can give you a headache over long periods of time, but if you use a lamp you need to make sure it gives you enough essential light to work with.
