Five Top Tips for Your Home OfficeHaving an organised office space can improve productivity, so there’s no excuse not to invest a little time and effort in your working environment. No more files on the floor, uncomfortable chair or hard to find documents.
1. Floor to ceiling storage
Tall free-standing bookcases will create the library-look whilst being wholly practical at the same time. Consider hidden lighting to allow for softer lighting options and atmosphere with some open shelving and more closed shelving below! It will look vast, but you'll be amazed how quickly you fill it.
The best and classiest way to achieve a library effect without taking up too much floor space is to invest in a library ladder. Go for our full rolling, hook over or corner swivel options depending on your scheme. All our ladders can be stowed away vertically for safety and practicality.
3. Paint colour
Carefully consider your painting scheme! Use a dark colour for a gentleman's club feel and maximum cosiness in the winter months or choose a bold colour for the library ladder itself. All our ladders are delivered in their raw state and are ready to paint. We often encourage painting in doors, skirting and mouldings to create an overall effect that is easy on the eye and even painting the insides of cupboard doors with a zingy pop of colour for an added element of surprise.
4. Make the best use of natural light
With so much time spent in our offices, we must do all we can to protect our eyesight by making the best use of natural light. Place your desk directly below a window if you can (you can add an anti glare screen to your computer) as this will help you concentrate for longer!
Give your office some added detail by hanging wall panelling across the walls without shelving. The additional vertical lines will help the room to feel bigger, adding warmth and depth to your scheme. Plus it will look seriously classy and inspire you to work like a big boss.
With all the hours we’re spending working at home, it’s an investment that will pay off.
