Setting up the perfect home office

Working from home provides an unprecedented freedom and eases work pressure. However, having a lazy workspace at your home can actually be counterproductive. Propping on your couch with a laptop and working on your coffee table can seriously hamper your productivity. If you are someone who often works from home, it pays to have a designated home office, can help eliminate minor irritations that hamper your workflow.

When planning your workspace, you need to think of creating a comfortable, yet professional workspace. Good seating arrangements should be one of your first priorities. You do not have to invest in the costliest worktable and chair, but having a good, comfortable chair and worktable is important.

Good lighting is also important. Try to position your workspace as close to a natural light source, such as a window. Also, invest in a good lighting system as well, for working during dark, moody days. Working in a place with optimal lighting will reduce strain on your eyes.

Good ventilation is also important. Invest in a good air conditioning system for those hot, humid days. This will have your work environment in an optimal temperature, thus keeping you from being uncomfortable.

How to choose home furniture

Whether you are renovating your home, or moving into a new place, getting new furniture should be one of your top priorities. The right furniture can tie up the place together and add a new charm to the living space. An interior designer will be able to select appropriate furniture and install them in a way that reflects your style.

You can look through a number of home d├ęcor magazines and home decor blogs online to get a sense of what you like. You can discuss about this with your designer, who will help you design customized look for your living space, and will also help you pick out furniture that you favour.

The designer will take into account various space and design parameters in order to help select your furniture. The furniture should not stick out like a sore thumb, but should blend in to the space. It should complement the fabric, drapes, paint and general architecture features of the space.

The colour scheme of the wall has to be decided alongside your furniture. Paint is available in a variety of colours and it is easier to match your furniture to the paint than the other way round.
