Contributed by Skylar Ross, Innovative Building Materials

Remote work is a situation that allows professionals to carry out their duties outside the traditional office setting. In a bid to remain relevant, especially at this period where the world is facing a global pandemic, it is crucial to learn how to enhance productivity while working remotely. One significant way of achieving this is by creating a home office that provides the right ambiance for getting work done effectively and efficiently.

It is essential to know how to replicate the right atmosphere for work while you are at home. Hence the need for the following five home office design tips that will help you increase your productivity.

Dressing Table to Work Desk

One common platform for getting work done is on a table. You often spend more time behind a desk than you imagine. If you are on a limited budget, you can convert your dressing table to a desk by only making little adjustments. Remove the cosmetics and replace them with a flower vase, a table frame, and of course, your laptop. However, you may want to go all out by getting an entirely new desk. The choice of table matters since your sight is often within the circumference of what is before you. The view has an impact on the mind. A white solid surface desk will have a different appeal to the senses than a plain one. It will reflect light in such a way that keeps your mind alert while carrying out your task.

Noise-Proof Room

In the home, it is evident that sometimes you will have other inhabitants. You do not want to share sensitive information carelessly; neither do you want other people's interaction to affect your concentration. Ceiling systems are the easiest way to achieve a noise-proof room since it is extensive and accessible. Fixing an acoustic ceiling cloud in your home office can help to reduce noise, enable speech privacy, and provide a relaxed room that aids concentration.

Adjusting Your Home Configuration

By moving some items in your home from one room to another or simply placing them in another part of a room, you can have a home office that allows you to get the work done effectively. You may change the location of your television, fan, cabinet, etc. You may place a desk adjacent to your cupboard. A shelf with sliding glass pocket doors can enable you to keep antiques, books, valuable objects under lock as well as beautify your space. 

Make Optimum Use of Your Space

Layers of racks can help you keep things in place and avoid clutter. A wall can house about five boards in layers such that you can save items you frequently use at the bottom layers and those you do not need as often as others at the top layers. Placing objects in the right place helps you get them quickly when you need them and directly improves your time management, which enhances your productivity.

Use Colors You Love

You should choose colors that trigger good emotion. Colors have an impact on performance; hence you need to be deliberate about the colors around you. A combination of colors you genuinely love will give you a feeling of satisfaction that enables you to focus on other tasks you need to accomplish. You may achieve this by painting your walls, cabinets, shelves with colors you love. However, do not make it too busy to distract you from achieving your goals.

By applying the design tips mentioned above, your home office will provide an excellent place for inspiration, help you avoid distractions that can hinder your effectiveness, and enhance the rate at which you get your work done.
