How To Create A Great Workspace In Your Home


How to make homeworking work for you

A lot of businesses are so pleased with how well their employees have adjusted to homeworking these past 12 months that they’re now giving them the option of working from home.

Has your employer said you can do it? 

For it to work, you need to be disciplined with yourself, sticking to your normal shift patterns and not letting anything distract you during your working hours. 

You must have a great workspace too, or else it will be difficult to be as productive as you were in the old office. 

That’s easily organised, as we’re about to demonstrate:

French / Patio / Bi-Folding Doors

An upturn in the weather is coinciding with restrictions being eased again., and after a very chilly winter, you want to get some sun on your skin whilst working. 

The expanses of glass within French doors, patio doors or a bi-folding door could be used to entice the sun into the area where you work in the house if it’s currently slightly short of natural light. 

So that you don’t get too hot and bothered when working in summer, the doors can also be opened to let fresh air in.

Roof Lantern / Skylight

The integration of French, patio or bi-folding doors within your chosen workspace may not be a possibility, whereas a roof lantern or skylight could be fitted above it. 

You will get so much sunlight pouring into the room that you will almost feel as though you’re working outdoors, rather than indoors. Both products also look mightily impressive when you set your eyes on them. 

There’s far more glass in a roof lantern or skylight than the actual frame itself, so it will be a super sunny venue.

Home Office Extension

If you’re definitely going to work at home a lot in the future, it could be worth getting a home extension built, your own personal study. 

When organising a home office, you can always request the inclusion of features like bi-folding doors or a skylight, as most home improvement specialists will let you custom-design the extension to suit. 

It’s where you can shut yourself away in the morning and then close the door on your work life at the end of your day shift.
