Working from home can mean many different things to many different people. Putting in 40+ hours a week working remotely from the employer’s HQ, freelancing for a number of clients or completing an on-line course of study are all popular kinds of home-working.
But whatever the activity involved is, the need for reliable and useful tools and equipment is vital. An inviting and comfortable space for working in is also a top requirement.
In order to create the best working space a number of things should be taken account. The basics are seating, desk surrounds and equipment. Of course, computers, smartphones and internet access are also essential, but for out purposes here we’ll take a look at the kind of home-ware and design equipment dedicated to making home working that little bit more comfortable and cool. Here are some of our top tips for getting the most out of your living space in an industrious sense…
We all know that computers are on their way to taking over the world. In truth, most of us would be a bit lost without one! But in saying that, there is also a place for traditional methods of writing things down and taking notes. Every office has to have its fair share of pens and pencils! To that effect, you’re going to need somewhere to put them. Check out this luxury brass pencil holder from Ferm Living. As a way of keeping stationary neat and tidy it certainly does the job, but more than anything else it brings a real touch of class to your working area.
Another factor familiar to those who work to deadlines is the occasional need to work through the night. To do this effectively, you’re going to need some light. This great lamp designed by Leitmotiv is named Hobby but don’t let that keep the more serious work projects away from its gaze… The ultra cool retro styled lamp is capable of complete manoeuvrability, allowing you to fully concentrate on the task at hand.
Another must have for any workplace – possibly even more so at home where distractions loom large – is a visible and smart timepiece. Wall clocks and desk clocks all have their place, so why not check out the office clocks in this collection at Dotmaison and up the style ante of your productivity!
