Even though it might be less than you think, more and more office workers are opting to work from home. However if you think that this is just a way for employees to just laze about and work in their pyjamas, on their bed, then you would be wrong. The idea of a home office is that this is an area to work and the furniture must reflect that. The ideal scenario is that there should be a proper office that you can work in, but this is not always possible.
You could allow space in the dining room or convert a spare bedroom for instance in order to work. The lounge is not the best place to fit a small office area has often this is an area of high traffic and there are usually many distractions, such as a TV that could cause your productivity levels to drop while working.
The office furniture that you choose to use is should be laid out in a manner that suits your needs. For example, let's say that you use your photocopier quite frequently during each day, you should make sure that this is plugged in properly and that the wires are untangled. This should go for all of your electronics, especially ones that are plugged into your computer. Make sure that you do not try to save money by buying a cheap office chair. You will be spending a lot of hours in this seat so it is recommended that you opt for an ergonomic chair that has appropriate adjustable features, including lumbar support, adjustable armrests and an adjustable back to name but a few. This will help ensure that you keep work related injuries to a minimum when you are working from home.
