Setting up a business in your home is an exciting process. One of the many decisions you’ll have to make is how to arrange your office furniture. Arranging your furniture mindfully can increase your productivity and set the tone for your office. Above all, your space should be functional. Keep reading for some inspirational ideas on arrangements.
Your office desk is the focal point of your work space. Since you’ll likely spend most of your time at your desk, position it in a manner that is most comfortable for you. Place it close to a wall to allow for foot traffic, and make sure there is enough space between your chair and the wall to prevent a cramped appearance. If you use a computer for work, place the desk close to a wall outlet. Many people prefer to position the desk so they can work while facing the door. Or, you may prefer to face a window.
In addition to selecting a comfortable office chair, consider additional seating for your work space. If you expect to see clients in your home office, purchase one or more comfortable chairs and line them against a wall facing your desk. You may also wish to position an additional chair on the opposite side of your desk for client meetings.
It’s helpful to store the items you use most frequently close to your desk. You might consider placing a small filing cabinet next to your desk for easy access. If you require additional storage space, position one or more filing cabinets behind your desk. If there is insufficient space behind your desk, place your filing cabinets in a corner to prevent interference with foot traffic.
