Working from home is undoubtedly and gradually becoming the new norm in Singapore. And while it may come with its benefits, the distractions at home may prove to be counterproductive for employees.
And as much as we’d all like to have one of our rooms converted into a home office, most of us simply do not have the luxury of space in Singapore. So how do you create a home office without being distracted? Read on to find out more!
Get creative with a desk and shelf combo
If your HDB apartment is short on space, then fret not. You can still have a mini workstation by re-adapting your existing furniture. Consider a desk-shelf combination that does not take up too much space. This organized space-savvy workstation is both trendy and multifunctional (without breaking your bank of course).
Make a study room (in another room!)
If all of your rooms are already being used, then all hope’s not lost. You can easily add a home office to an existing room without taking much space. One way to achieve this is to line your work tables along an empty wall, and it doesn’t matter if it’s your dressing room or your bedroom!
Re-arrange the living room
We’re all guilty of moving the sofa away from the wall (you know, right across the TV with a coffee table in between). But here’s a tip: why not move the sofa further in front and use the space behind as your home office? You can either match the work area with the living room interior or go creative with a completely different look. All you’ll need is just an additional table and some chairs.
Upgrade your existing partition
Already have a partition? Why not upgrade it to a work table instead? It not only helps to separate spaces from one another visually expand your interior space and allow natural light to flow through while having a clear distinction between workspace and the relax corner.
Sit by the window
A brighter office makes you much more awake and your work routine much more enjoyable. The easiest way to achieve it is to position your desk to directly face the window. And voila! You now have a dynamic view of the outdoors within the comfort of your home (also remember to give your eyes a break while working)!
