Most states and cities are opening beyond our homes into shopping, dining, socializing as you know. However, the ‘work from home’ phenomenon appears to be a home office option for many as employers allow and encourage it. Among friends and neighbors, I hear the pros and cons of their current experiences. I don’t envy those in non-stop Zoom meetings. They speak about back aches, tired eyes, posture issues and so on as a home office goes mainstream.
Are you rethinking what you need to not only do your work but enjoy the comfort and support you need? Not that long ago homes were larger and included a dedicated home office. It was generally located near the entry ~ remember those? This was before everything went mobile.
Mobile devices are standard today and thus often a large desk area is unnecessary..unless it is. We’re accommodating Zoom. Skype. Teams and a flexible work area is essential.
There are physical needs..like a supportive chair and a desk lamp..Oh how tired your back becomes! But also, there are work styles. Home is a distraction if it also includes home schooling family, a partner also working from home. I hear comments about standing desks and desiring the ability to move. Many companies provide desks that support and also the chair best suited to the employee.
At the beginning of Sheltering, I wasn’t thinking long-term but the consensus on that seems to be changing. What about you? Is your office at home a haven, a refuge or in need of design assistance. Flexible and personalized are two key elements. When you contact us you are able to add what you require.
