How to Create a Work-From-Home Space that Will Increase your Productivity

A Functional, Comfortable and Calming Workspace Increases and Maintains Productivity

As the Movement Control Order (MCO) continues to break the transmission chain of Covid 19, more and more of us are now working from home, and many for the first time. By now, you may already have a functional workspace at home, but is it comfortable and calming? A comfortable and calming workspace is necessary to increase and maintain focus and productivity. So, here are four tips on creating a functional, comfortable as well as calming work-from-home space:

  1. Pick the right spot

An ideal spot for a working space would be a living space that is away from potentials distractions, like your TV and all your snacks. You may have limited option if you live in an apartment, so we suggest you to pick a spot that receives good natural light facing away from potential distractions. For example, next to a window or the balcony. Also, it is best to set up your workspace close to a power outlet. Otherwise, you can always use a power outlet extension.

  1. Make sure to have sufficient light

Good lighting is important to reduce eyestrain, which is why we encourage you to choose a spot that receives good natural light. Otherwise, you can set up an extra floor lamp or a table lamp from another room in your house. If you experience your eyes being overly tired at the end of the day, it’s a sign that your workspace is not well-lit. So, adjust the position of the current lighting that you’ve set up, or simply add another source of light.

  1. Make your workspace as ergonomic as possible

If you have never worked from home before, you may not own an ergonomic office chair. Since most shops are currently closed, use whatever chair you have but make sure the height of your desk and chair are compatible. If you’re hunching over your laptop of computer, you need to adjust the height of your chair. Another option that you can consider is to devise your own “standing desk.” Not only working on a standing desk are known to be beneficial to your health, but it is also easy to set up. Simply prop your laptop on something with hard surface like books to create the right height, and you’re all set. Whether you’re sitting or standing, the main thing that you need to achieve is to create a setup that keeps your back in alignment, so you’re not bending down to see the screen.

  1. Decorate your workspace

You may think this is unnecessary, but decorating your work area will make it more pleasant and calming, which is important as you will spend a lot of time here. Simple decoration using houseplants, or a piece of art from another space in your house would be sufficient to give your workspace a little personality. If you want to create a calm vibe, add an aromatherapy diffuser to your desk and play a soft, non-distracting music.

Once you have your workspace set up, make sure to use the space only for work and never work in bed or the living room. Trust us, you never want to associate your bed and living room with work, for these areas are for you to relax and unwind after a long day of work.

If you’re having trouble creating a workspace due to the items you have in your house, we’ve got a solution. Identify items and furniture that you rarely use—these are the non-essential items that you don’t need now but still worth keeping for the future. Store them away at Cube Self Storage and you will have more space at home to work, to relax, and even to play. Spacious living is always possible for everyone, you just need the right storage solution.

    My first experience, Visa the lady assisted me patiently through every steps. She is not only approachable but very professional, … More putting herself in the customer's shoes and understanding all my doubts and answering all my questions patiently. She also followed up with my experience after using their service. Very good customer service, and I definitely will use their service again.
