7 Tips for Organizing Your Remote Working Space at Home

(Guest Writer: Jessica Fender)

There are more and more specialists who don’t go to the office and work remotely. Some are frankly jealous of them, while others understand that working from home is not so easy. For those whose workdays take place within their own home, we prepared some recommendations that experienced freelancers find helpful.

Oftentimes, if, while working at home, you feel that you get tired fast, experience constant stress, or just feel unproductive all the time, chances are you are simply uncomfortable.

Ergonomics teaches us that human interaction with our work environment is important if we are to find work pleasant and effective. Without further delay, let's figure out how to make our remote workspace pop!

Perfect Home Office: Items for Your Shopping List

1. Create A Dedicated Workspace

Of course, you can work from a laptop at the dinner table, lying in bed, or crouched on a couch. Such a way of working is not critical if you do it once or twice, but won't do you any good in the long run.

If you are going to work from home all the time, you cannot do without a dedicated well-organized workspace. Furthermore, it is often the case that multiple family members work remotely at once, which creates a tricky situation since each of them needs their own space. However, it's something you have to figure out if you want to work effectively and comfortably.

Another important and challenging aspect of working from home is separating work from leisure. Those who work remotely often complain that they work almost round the clock, never fully rest, and therefore feel exhausted. A dedicated place that you will only use for work is a must-have, or else you will find it hard to immerse into work, as well as to properly rest.

2. Gear Up

Now it's time to furnish the working area. The main task when organizing a workplace is choosing a good desk. Your work surface should be large enough to accommodate all tools you regularly use.

A perfect desk size for you is determined by the amount of time you spend working. If you only occasionally check your mail, a small table with just enough space for a laptop and a cup of coffee should be enough, but if you work remotely all the time, invest in a proper desk. Your desk should accommodate reaching all necessary tools easily without leaving your seat.

Now that we mentioned a seat, please know that a comfortable office chair is a must too. Make sure it has armrests, provides good back support, and allows seating height regulation.

The rest of the gear depends on the type of work you do, but it most certainly includes a desktop computer or a laptop, maybe also headphones, webcam, and other small gadgets. If you are a graphic designer, you will need a drawing tablet. If your job is writing or translating, you will likely need specific software – take care of it in advance.

3. Get Proper Storage

There are three types of storage required for work – above the table, on the table, and under the table. For maximum convenience, use all three. You can place shelves for books and office equipment above the table; then various holders, boxes, dividers on the table; cabinets and drawers under the table. Arrange storage so that everything is easy to reach

4. Keep Your Desk Organized

In the process of work, piles of papers and various clutter sometimes accumulate on the desk. All who have learned to work effectively agree that your work surface should be clear and clean.

A messy desk is distracting and demotivating, and it can kill your productivity. Plus, it makes it harder to find what you are looking for. If your work involves papers, come up with a system for them. For example, you can put a special tray for documents on the table.

5. Everything Should Be At Hand

No one will come to change your cartridge, set up a printer or Wi-Fi: you are your own administrator and office manager. You will have to rely solely on yourself. But it also means that you can do everything in a way that is convenient for you.

For example, if you frequently print documents, the printer should be located nearby and not in another room. You should also have enough sockets near your desk to charge all your devices.

6. Create A Routine And Stick To It

Doesn’t matter how neat, organized and comfy your workspace is, it doesn’t guarantee successful and productive work. Self-discipline does, though. To stay on top of your productivity, create a schedule that works for you.

Make sure to alternate periods of work and rest. Most experts suggest taking a 15-minute break every 45 minutes to an hour. Try finding a rhythm you work more efficiently in, start the timer and go!

Come up with routines that mark the beginning and end of your workday. For example, start the day with yoga or meditation. In the evening, declutter your desk in preparation for a new day. Thus, you will mark the end of the workday and the beginning of rest.

7. Take Advantage Of Being At Home

If in the office during a break you only have time for a snack, or if you are lucky – a short walk. However, you can find a lot more activities at home, both productive and fun ones – whatever you feel like.

You can take 15 minutes to vacuum, fold laundry, play some guitar, take a shower, cook a simple meal – possibilities are endless! It is essential not to get carried away though; follow the planned schedule, and return to work on time.

Handy for Broad Audience

These tips will work well for both remote workers and students who have to study from home. They also need an organized well-equipped space to perform well in school or university.

However, studying online can be more challenging than one may think, as you have to cover most of the material yourself. Sometimes this leaves less time for time-consuming tasks such as writing.

If this is your case, you should know that there are options. You can contact an essay writing service that will take the tasks you don’t have time for off your hands. This way you will have more free time to do important research, prepare for exams, and tend to other academic tasks.

Concluding Our Research

If you work from home, you know how difficult it can be to get in the mood for work. We hope that our recommendations will help you not only choose the right furniture but also organize your work and increase your personal efficiency!
