4 web

If you’re a budding entrepreneur, a working mom, a freelancer, an artist or in the creative field, sometimes it happens that your workstation or workshop is your own house. This kind of set-up comes with its own set of pros-and cons. In this case, in the middle of all the hustle-bustle, you deserve some privacy, your own zone, where you don’t zone out! Hence it is important to have a designated and organized work space. So here, we give you five tips that will definitely help you build your own workstation, in the comfort of your home.

Choosing the right space—

-A quiet and distraction free location. A separate room is always good. But one that is segregated by divider or cabinets can also give you privacy (preferably a corner or near a window)

-Depending on your area of expertise, if your field requires a workshop or you’re an artist, then use a more flat area.

-Choose a place where you can avoid kids or pets.

Essentials—

-A beautiful comfy chair with a back rest and a good table top.

-Wi-Fi and a network booster in case of a space which doesn’t catch enough networks.

-A wall clock or a table clock, a calendar or a planner for you to keep track of time.

-A quirky table lamp to let the light shine on you.

-Put up a cute chalkboard, to write down important things or quotes.

Organize—

-Stock your stationery in a beautiful vintage glass, a pretty mug or use mason jars.

-Empty a small part in your wardrobe to keep your office utilities.

-Put a soft push board or bulletin board to pin important documents.

-Use a beautiful looking rectangular tray to organise all your knick-knacks, visiting cards, clips, post-its, and more.

-It is always suggested to buy a visiting card holder to store all the important cards and/or a telephone diary.organize

Accentuate

-You’re at home, you’re the boss! Don’t hesitate to decorate your workspace the way you like it.

-Put up a string of some photographs. Add souvenirs from your last trip, an inspirational quote frame.

-Bring colours into your life; add some quirky cushions, a comfy bean bag, get some prints on the wall, or your furniture to make it more artistic.

-Choose a quirky mug, coasters, note pads etc.

-Get some low-maintenance office plants and add some greenery to your office. Gazing at and nurturing flowers and plants cuts stress by 20%!

-Get a beautiful and artistic table lamp to add some much-needed light to your office.

Storage—           

“I need some space!” This sentence alarms everyone! You work space is going to be like your better half, so it is mandatory to keep it clutter free as much as possible.

-If your office space is small, opt for hanging floating shelves. Make more floor-space, it’ll make your work-station look bigger.

-Have at least one dustbin! A clean workplace is what you need.

-Invest in a nice basket or a storage box to keep all your important papers stocked in one place.

-Empty a small part in your wardrobe to keep your office utilities.
