Top Considerations When Designing Your Home Office


If you’re planning to start working from home, you’re going to need a space where you can have all your equipment and paperwork. Preferably, it needs to be in its own room so that you aren’t distracted by your family walking in and out.

Designing your perfect home office needs good organization and planning. To help you, here are some tips to the perfect home office.


Your Office Equipment

It’s important to get this right, as this is where a lot of your budget will go. You need to think about what equipment you’ll need and if you have the space to put it anywhere.

A reliable wireless internet hub is a good idea because you can work in a room where the hub is far away. It means you won’t have to have the router moved into the office.

If you don’t do a lot of printing, then buying a printer might not be such a high priority. Is the one you already have for the family going to be good enough? You will, however, need another phone line to your office so that you won’t be interrupted by the home phone.



Ideally, you want as much natural light as possible – because daylight is the most balanced light you can get, and also because it makes you feel more relaxed. You can have some additional lighting such as a desk lamp if you’ll be working late, but if it gets too dark, you’ll need a good quality main light, so your eyes don’t get strained.

You don’t want to have lights that will reflect off your computer screen or are in your line of vision. Try to place them, so they give light without any glare.


Energy Efficiency

As you’ll be using your office every day, you’ll need to make sure that your office is as energy efficient as possible. You can do this by getting energy saving light bulbs and choosing equipment that is energy efficient.

You can also have solar panels attached to your roof to generate electricity for you. There will be a solar company near you, such as Semper Solaris, who’ll fit them for you. It’ll be the best way to stay energy efficient with your home office.


Privacy and Concentration

With the best will in the world, it’ll be hard to concentrate if you have a TV in the office with you, or if other people have to keep going in and out. So, you need to ensure that everyone in the home knows that you’re working and that you need to have some time alone. That’s why it’s important for you to make sure you have a separate room in the house to work.

If you can design and organize your office in the right way, not only will you have the perfect place to do your work, you might find that a space that you’ve made your own is the perfect place to think creatively about your business.
