Making the Most of Your Home Office

The world has undeniably changed in the last year and, while there have been a lot of challenges, there are some silver linings as well. One such positive change is the increase in flexibility of companies allowing their employees to work from home. All over the country, people have been preparing their home offices to maximize comfort and productivity. The team at EB Painting – providers of the best Vancouver painting services – has been here to help every step of the way. Below are four surefire ways to help you make the most of your home office.

Improve Lighting

Have you always wanted a big and beautiful office with a view? Maybe now is the time. Proper lighting is essential for both comfort and productivity, and if you can build your home office around natural lighting with a view, even better! If that is not possible, be sure to install task lighting and ample, equalized artificial light around your room to be easy on your eyes as you work.

Build Energy with Colors

If you have the opportunity to take on a Vancouver interior painting project, consider prioritizing your new home office. Nearly all Vancouver interior painters will tell you that colour directly impacts emotion. Vancouver painting companies like EB Painting love nothing more than working with our clients to evoke the emotions they seek out of a room. Neutral colours are great to combine with other colours to subtly create whatever mood you are hoping for. Blues are relaxing, green is natural and fresh, purple encourages creativity, and red is energizing. Having a Vancouver residential painting professional help, you accent your home office with a colour scheme of your choosing can do wonders to improve the enjoyment and productivity you get out of your home office.

Stay Organized

One of the biggest challenges people face when transitioning to working at home is figuring out how to stay organized in a different environment. The best system at the office may not be the best system at home, and figuring out how to stay organized will be critical in making the most of your home office. Installing new shelves or drawers, investing in desktop organizers, or figuring out how to aesthetically hang charts and calendars will all play into your home office productivity.

Establish Privacy

Another big challenge of working at home is figuring out how to ensure some level of privacy. Whether you need a quiet space away from the kids or two of you working from home simultaneously, developing space and guidelines for ensuring privacy is essential for home office success. If you can isolate your space from the rest of the house, that is a great step in the right direction. Otherwise, simple things like “Meeting in Progress” or “Busy” signs on your door can help kindly keep your family or roommates at bay during the busiest parts of your workday.
