3 Home Office Tips from Our Experts
Here are some tips from our experts you might not have thought of for your home office. Looking to conserve energy? Use the sun to keep your office space warm in winter. Keep blinds or drapes on sun-exposed windows open in the daytime. Retain heat overnight by closing the blinds after dark. In the summer do the opposite - reduce cooling costs by drawing shades or blinds on sun-exposed windows and glass doors.
Establish a focal point for your home office: A focal point is the first thing you see when you enter a space. It is necessary in all design, and many home offices don’t have a natural focal point like a fireplace, or a large bank of windows with a view. If your focal point is your desk (most of the time it is), give it visual impact by hanging grouped artwork, placing a bookshelf behind it, or installing a specialized wall treatment made of wallpaper, fabric or a decorative mural. You can also add an area rug or drop a chandelier to ground the space.
Protect your equipment. Smoke, humidity, and dust will harm your computer. Arrange your home office so that your computer and other peripherals are away from these elements. Cover your equipment when not in use.
