Essentials for the perfect home office

The corona crisis makes it abundantly clear: The ability to work flexibly and efficiently from home is more important today than ever. Especially in our own homes we are exposed to distractions and disturbances more often than is the case in most offices, especially when your children are also at home due to closed day-care centres and schools. At the same time, the atmosphere for working in your own four walls can be significantly improved in just a few steps. In the following we will show you what is important for an optimally equipped home office:

- Work efficiently from home: We give you tips on how to set up the ideal home office and keep it free of distractions.


In the home office you should be able to concentrate fully on your work and be as free as possible from distractions during the curfew restrictions that the corona crisis brings with it in many places. A separate room for home work is only the beginning. The keyword is minimalism. Only furnish the home office with items and objects that you really need for your activities. Otherwise you run the risk of accumulating documents or objects on your office desk that have nothing to do with your work. The choice of furniture and colours used can also influence how efficiently you can work in your new environment. In our blog we have therefore compiled further tips for more minimalism in the office for you. 


Not only since the corona crisis is order the cornerstone for efficient working in the home office. However, the fact that many employees are currently increasingly working from home makes it all the more important that their own office is tidy. After all, order supports the thought processes. So, think about what tasks you have to do during your work, what tools you need for this and how best to store them when you don't need them. Sufficient shelves, file cabinets or drawers should therefore be available in every home office. But even on a smaller scale, order is essential: Do you have to draw or write by hand in your work? Then get yourself a drawer organiser for pens, rulers and office utensils. If you use electronic devices such as a computer or telephone, arrange the cables using cable ducts. In our blog article we have summarised further tips for more order in the home office for you. 

Noise insulation

A quiet working atmosphere is a central component of a perfect home office. The German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer once said that noise is not only disturbing, but inevitably leads to the interruption of thoughts. In the home office, however, one is exposed to a variety of disturbing noise sources, such as loud neighbours or noise from the street. That is why the perfect home office should also be insulated against noise. This could, for example, be done in the form of cushioned floors or special sound-insulating wall panelling. In an article, we have listed further sound dampening options for you.
