How can we design a work area at home?
Nowadays it is very common, and increasingly, people to work from home. New technologies and constant updates allow us to be connected at all times without the need to be in person. This has done to many people having to have a work area in their homes separate from their daily lives, a space within their own home that focuses exclusively on doing its function.
The workplace must be a harmonious and balanced space, where natural lighting is one of the main properties. An organized area and where there is enough space to move and have everything necessary. Depending on the work to be done, the needs of this room will be different: they must be according to the function to develop. It is important to know at the time of designing the office, the technology that we will include. We can integrate these elements into the design so that there are no extras to be seen.
Once the technology that we will need is done, we select the furniture. Two basic of an office are: a large and wide table, if you have storage space will be an extra; and a comfortable chair that adapts to our ergonomics. These two elements are essential to carry out our functions without inconvenience or problems. Currently, there are a big variety of designs and shapes that fit any style and need.
Another important requirement, is the lighting. In addition to having natural lighting; we must also know the incorporation of table lamps and suspended lamps, as well as wall lamps and spotlights that will help us when working. Poor lighting can create health problems in the future, therefore, it is advisable that the area has good light.
An office must be a functional and practical place where all the elements that are present have a purpose. Its design does not have to be like a sober office, it can be a relaxing and fun space at the same time, we can introduce original paintings and color through textiles and make it ours. Our office must become an extension of our home, it must have coherence and a certain order.
To finish, we will show you the offices that we have made in some of our projects. Many of them have integrated shelves that have been made to measure and that become protagonists of these rooms, are very functional. We hope you enjoy the post and inspire you when designing your offices at home. Happy week!
