Create a Balance Between your Work and Home Life with an Office!
Working from home is a great perk.
However, in order for it to be successful, you need to make sure that it can bring comfort, focus and provide no distractions.
The office can be designed to your own standards and bring out your personality within.
It must not be a place to stress and discomfort. It should feel like a breath of fresh air when you enter, ready to complete your to-do-list and achieve your goals.
However, if it’s too laid back it will affect your concentration, so it is worthwhile to take close attention to how you want your office to look.
The main issue with having an office, is keeping it clean and tidy. Not only does this relieve stress but provides a clean slate each day to get back into work.
At Casanad Furnishings, we have everything from Desks to Accessories to Office Chairs to Cabinets and Bookshelves. Each of our accessories create a statement designed to bring both balance and elegance into your work space.
Jo Heinz, president of Staffelbach, suggests asking yourself some questions before you begin. What will you be doing in your work space? Will you have clients visiting? What type of equipment do you need? These questions can build a template of what items need to be included in the work space and how you can make the most of it.
The Flat Surface
A suitable desk would be the best place to start. Think about what you are going to need most and use regularly. Things such as a laptop or computer need to be at the centre and may take up a lot of room. Other things can be placed further away in drawers and shelves to store neatly. Our Fusion Corner Desk is perfect for smaller rooms. It comes in white with a Truffle Oak effect and two gliding drawers. If you are looking for a bigger desk with more storage, choose our Marilyn White Gloss Computer Desk. It also comes with a profile cut to hold your Tablet or Smart Phone.
The Seating Arrangement
When choosing a seat for your office, it is important for it to be comfortable and fit under your desk neatly. You also need to make sure that it is easily adjustable to your spine to allow you to relax for however long you are working. Whether you prefer chair with wheels or not, the decision is entirely up to you. At Casanad, we have many varieties of office chairs available to suit to your needs. Our Eames Style Office Chair with Casters comes in white, grey or black to complement your office.
We understand that storage is limited but to create an area of concentration without any distractions is important. Remember, there shouldn’t be anything on show that doesn’t need to be there or used anytime soon. We have a fabulous collection of bookcases and cabinets that can store all your files and accessories neatly. If you are running out of space the Marilyn Tall Narrow Bookcase is the best solution. It has one cupboard and three external selves with a white gloss finish.
The Final Touches
Add some finishing pieces to your office to make it your own. Plants are a great place to start, they are said to make people happy and add some colour into the office.
It is important to have the right lighting which is not too dark or too bright to cause you a headache. Desk lamps are the best way to aim light into your direction and focus on the work, if you like traditional designs choose our Angle Lamp.
If the work you do is related to travelling or international business, then choose a desk globe. We have a few different examples to choose from. The desk top globe comes on a chrome stand primarily ornamental but is still a useful reference piece.
However, you design your office remember to
1- Design it how you want and reflect your personality within
2- Declutter and put away unneeded items
3- Place comfort as your top priority
Once you have ticked everything off, then you can begin to create the ultimate space to work and focus in without any distractions. Use Casanad Furnishings and make your dream living space turn into a reality.
