7 Design Features for Working From Home

Working from home? Whether you’re temporarily working from home or you’re setting up a permanent home office, certain design features can make your space more comfortable and accommodating. Keep reading to discover seven design features for working from home:

Design Features

1. Soundproofing

Consider soundproofing your home office, especially if you have children, pets, or you live in a busy area. Noise in the background of a video conference call can be distracting, so reducing this noise with a soundproofing system can improve your work-from-home experience.

2. Storage

If you accumulate documents or office supplies, storage can help you stay organized. Consider closets with built-in shelving or cabinets and drawers designed for office supplies and paperwork. This allows you to make the most of your space and keep your things in order.

3. Daylighting

You want there to be as much natural light in your home office as possible. Sunlight can improve your mood and help you feel happier during your work day. Position your desk near a window, but make sure the glare from the sun doesn’t hit your computer screen.

4. Outlet placements

It’s important to make sure you have conveniently placed outlets in your home office. In order to make the most of your space, consider floor outlets to keep wires out of the way.

5. Strong Wi-Fi

A strong Wi-Fi connection can help you get your work done smoothly. If you have a larger home, or your router is far from your home office, consider a Wi-Fi booster to make your signal as strong as possible.

6. Ample outlets

Not only do you want conveniently placed outlets, but you also want a lot of outlets. If one day you’re tired of working at your desk, you can take advantage of outlets placed throughout your home to work from your favorite chair, your couch, your kitchen counter, and so on.

7. Ventilation

Poor indoor air quality can cause a variety of problems. It can lead to colds, nose and eye irritation, and allergies, but it can also lead to long-term problems like cancer and respiratory disease. To make sure your space is as healthy and efficient as possible, make sure you’re installing a top-quality ventilation system.
