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.

The beauty of handmade tiles

Handmade tiles have a unique charm that is impossible to replicate with the factory made tiles. The subtle imperfections, such as uneven edges, disproportionate colours, and rough surfaces add to the overall look and feel of the handmade tiles. The contrasting differences between handmade tiles and factory made tiles are one of the main reasons for their huge appeal in the market.

Handmade tiles have appealing imperfections, and sets up a beautiful rustic ambience, which is why they are highly prized in the niche restaurant and other small establishments. Handmade tiles are made from traditional clay. Additives are added to provide colour and sturdy structure. When these are baked in a kiln, they result in an inconsistent colour pattern that the handmade tiles are famous for.

Once they are cooled down, the glaze will set differently in each tile. Slight cracks may appear on the glaze during the cooling process, which adds to the rustic look. This cracking however, does not result in a weaker/ substandard tile. These cracks form a unique pattern that looks like an art on its own.
