Working from home; discover the perfect home office

Working from home is slowly becoming the norm these days. The truth is whether you are developing your career through telematics, bringing home some tasks, or for any other reason, it is very common for you to need to have a working space within the home.

For this reason, we want to give you some advice about how to decorate a work space inside the house as the perfect home-office.

Essential features to create a workspace at home

It is clear that, when working at home, it is best to have a room that acts as an office and its sole purpose is to provide a space to concentrate and perform your tasks comfortably. However, this is not always possible and, in many cases, you have to share the room with a television, a bed, etc.

The most important thing is the desk since you will be spending most of your time sitting in front of it. The desk must provide you with sufficient space to carry out all your tasks. For example, you should allow space for the laptop or desktop computer and, in addition, enough space to put your papers on, read, etc.

The open storage devices placed on the desk provide very effective organisational solutions. In fact, thanks to them, you can always have access to all the tools you need in order to carry out your work. It is also best to leave some space for a bin, pens, a telephone, etc. All these tools can be on your desk without making you feel overwhelmed.

It is also a good idea to hang a nicely designed clock on one of the walls and shelves above in the immediate vicinity of the desk. Lighting is also vital when decorating a work space, especially if the room does not have too much access to natural light. Finally, do not forget to look for a chair that takes care of your posture. After all, comfort is a fundamental part of concentration.

What is the perfect home-office?

Most homes are not exclusively designed to serve as an office. However, many professionals in architecture and interior design have this issue in mind when planning such rooms. As an example, take a look at this beautiful 'loft' flat in San Sebastián de los Reyes.

With one bedroom, a bathroom and an area of ​​73 square metres, this flat is a fully equipped home office. It has a really spacious and comfortable workspace that is separated from the other rooms by practical shelving. In fact, even the dining table can be used as a meeting place.

The subject property was built in 2008 and has laminate flooring, air conditioning system, and heat pump, so it is undoubtedly a home that is designed for carrying out your work tasks in an incredibly cosy setting at any time of the year.
