  1. Storage

Think through your work needs and how you flow from one task to another.  What do you need readily available and what can be stored or tucked away for tasks that are not daily? Keep your workspace decluttered and tidy for a clear mindset and this will help you stay on task and not be distracted.  Equip yourself with tools that help keep you organized ie. Whiteboards, bulletin boards, file organizers, hidden storage, shelves, pencil drawers etc.

“If your office space requires storage, make sure that piece looks great on its own and isn’t this super-utilitarian file cabinet” – Dani Arps.

  1. Light

Start with what furniture will be required for your home office space: desk, lights, filing, storage, computer, chair, phone, media devices, etc. How would this best be layed out to accommodate your daily tasks: zoom meetings, online consults, conference phone calls, etc. Mockup a few different layouts, feel out what may work best. What makes you feel good in this space? Do you want Roman blinds or California? Make sure this space is safe and wires are not a tripping hazard for you, clients, or children that may be popping in and out.

No matter what you choose, make sure you’ve picked the right window shutters to let the light in for the life you’ve brought into your home office!
