5 Home Office Must-Haves for Productivity

Working from home is the new reality for a lot of us as we continue to stay home due to the Coronavirus pandemic, so a home office has become more important than ever. Whether you have a home office already or want to renovate to create one, your local contractors at Center Island Contracting can create a home office that can boost productivity.

For those used to working in an office setting, there’s an advantage of taking everything you don’t like about your office, in addition to everything you love about it into consideration and creating an office space that complements your work style.

Below are 5 must-haves for a home office. Talk to the experts at Center Island Contracting about adding on to your home to create an office or renovating your existing space to make one.

Natural Light

Exposure to natural light can improve your productivity as well as overall mood. Make sure there are enough windows in the home office for it to light up the room with natural light during the day.

Storage to Reduce Clutter

Storage such as built-in shelves, filing cabinets and drawer space in your desk are all a great way to reduce clutter in your home office. Use the corners to your advantage by creating bookshelves.

Location with No Distractions

Find a location for your office that is far enough from the laundry room, bedrooms, kids’ playroom or kitchen, essentially anywhere a distraction can take place. Peace and quiet is crucial for productivity.

High-Speed Internet

High-speed internet connections can shave hours off your day. Focus on your work instead of worrying about waiting for attachments to download or website pages to load.

Large, Clear Desk

A cluttered desk can hinder productivity the same way as any distraction. Get organized with a clear space to place your laptop and anything else you need for that moment. Old documents or paperwork you don’t need can veer your focus off track.
