The essentials for a home office


Need to work from home? Learn what it is absolutely necessary to have a mini or not so small comfortable office in your house or apartment.

1) One corner: That should give you the comfort you need. There are people who do not care about noise when they are working, there are people who can not work in a space where other activities are carried out by other people. There are people who like to see the exterior, others do not bother to have a wall ahead. You do not want to use a little corner that does not give you what you need. You will not use it or you will be unhappy and unproductive. Another issue is that depending on what you want to do, maybe a little corner is very small – especially if it is to receive people, ideally it has a specific environment for this.


Maybe see something at home? A space just to surf the internet? A small and simple corner in the room can serve


Or a table in the corner of the room, if you want more privacy … Even the chair does not have to be “the chair”

2) Table and / or work bench: Of course, how to work without a support, even q is not so … a table … if your activity involves only a laptop, for example, a shelf 40cm deep solves the question. If you use a desktop or a larger monitor, you need more depth (at least 55cm). Other services require more than a table, such as a sewing machine, etc … The most important is: The) table / bench height is perfect for you, whether you’re standing or sitting. B) Have enough space to carry out your work.W) Let it be a well-balanced base, with no gradients.


Everything is very different when your home-office is even an office, for a full or almost full time job


It requires more space and investment even when you will have more people working with you.

3) Chair: Do not skimp on this item if you are going to spend a lot of time sitting down. It is best to test before buying and – mind – test with a table at the same time as your desk has.


All this can be called home office, office. But they are very different things, with different needs

4) Great lighting for your work: Targeted lighting for the task and general ambient lighting. Do not exaggerate because light beyond what is necessary also tires. If it is possible to have a good window to look out for once in a while and have good natural daylight, this is great.


You can start small and then rethink all the space for an expansion … In this case, do not miss the time to invest to keep and grow your business!

5) Shelves, Organizers, Closet with Drawers: To keep and keep at hand what you need for your work.

Keeping everything organized and feeling comfortable is a must have for productivity

6) The necessary sockets for your equipment: The electrical installation should be efficient and safe. The ideal thing is that the wires are organized so as not to give the air of a mess that makes almost everyone angry … And working angry can not!

And whether in a corner or in a larger environment, do not forget to make everyone respect your workplace

7) The above items are the minimum required, but if you serve people, you will also need a chair or armchair for your client, or a couch to talk to and a coffee table.


Do not forget: The important thing is to feel happy!

What you can not have in a home office


I’m going to talk about that little corner that you use at home to do that social on the internet or take a quick job request. In it you do not need to have all the amenities of a home Office (of those you work for for hours on end). The requirements are much smaller, but even so, it takes the minimum for you to be comfortable … No one wants to have a headache, stiff neck, back pain or irritated is not it? So, see the important points of this little corner – and more importantly if you stay too long in it.


The distance between the end of the table and the seat of the chair should be enough to fit your legs, otherwise you will have to stay on the side or very far from the table … super uncomfortable!

Also the distance between the seat and the tabletop can not be so great that you look like a child sitting at an adult table. This “ends” with your arm and hands in no time.

Always prefer a comfortable chair instead of a beautiful chair that does not give you comfort for long.


If you are over 20, forget about this business of sitting on a bench to use the computer. You will suffer later … If you are under 20, think about it: Your spine will have to support you for a lifetime …


Sun is great, but banging on your face while you try to use the computer can not!


Double problem: Bench (no comfort for the spine) and moreover, too loud! You’re going to use the laptop to pose as a Hunchback of Notre Dame … It does not work!


Daylight again – coming behind the monitor will rather tire your vision.


A lamp like this is not the best choice: His light dims his vision, he’s trying to see the screen …

The side of the window is yes, the best position to have a monitor or lap screen. Only if it gets too light you will also feel visually uncomfortable. Decrease brightness with curtains or blinds.


This bunch of wires rolled up in the chair is an accident. It is best to organize them. And it looks beautiful, because this little bag is really ugly!

In this photo, 2 possible problems at the same time: The tangle of yarn, ugly and close to your leg and the carpet too close to the chair, which can irritate you and still ruin the poor thing with the movement of the chair.

Finally, taken towards the feet and legs are not convenient. You put your foot in and turn it off with enormous ease.

Details, only details … But the devil lives in them! (I.e.

Room for sleeping and working


It does not matter if it is small or large, whether it is for a teenage son, one that appears from time to time or for an eventual guest, the possibility of having a multifunctional room, that serves to sleep and also as home-office is a blessing! Let’s see some cool ideas?


Simple, comfortable, balanced between the impersonal and the cozy – the way of a guest room of those who like to receive with care and attention. And it can be used as an office or office on a day-to-day basis. Having a comfortable sofa or even sofa bed is super important!


Smaller than the first but very good. In the 2 we see the concern with lighting for both work and sleeping use.


If the room is used many hours like office it is great to have a good chair and emphasize the concern with the lighting.


This one already has quite the face that an environment that is much used even as office – closets, documents, drawer – but the sofa is available …


The arrangement is always basically the same. But the variations are endless. In this office / guest room the well-chosen neutral colors give a special air of warmth and comfort.


See the detail of the coating on the mattress in the mirror of the wardrobe, a detail beauty. Incidentally, although the other photos do not show, it is always nice to have at least a piece of furniture with drawers or separate pieces of a wardrobe for the visitor to put their objects and clothes.


A look of many planned furniture that you can see, but that are functional. I would only add a bulkhead between the mattress and the wall for comfort (like a mdf card, for example). And I would also remove the large drawers from the drawers below the bed to avoid tripping.


One thing I miss in these guest bedroom / office projects is a side table to make the nightstand. This can be solved with a puff or a little table that sits below the worktable, like here. At bedtime just put it next to the sofa if the person wishes. Having the space is simple to achieve a good environment for the office and for the eventual guest.
