If you need to build an office at home, there are two main options: to allocate a separate room or use part of the living room, bedroom or other room as a work area. A separate study, of course, easier to work, but not every apartment gives the opportunity. Choosing a suitable place to work, you need to consider several factors: how to fit it into the interior as to make it compact, but at the same time leaving enough space for comfortable work. Most often the office is equipped in the living room. For example, you can place a corner Suite or to "hide" the computer Desk in the closet, pushing it when necessary. There are options to equip a Cabinet in the pantry or on the balcony.
Determine what you need: computer or laptop, Desk and chair, shelves, equipment (printers and multi-function devices). The table preferably to have a curved countertop that wraps around the shape of the seated person. If you use a computer for work, the table design should allow for: to have a bottom shelf or a mobile table on wheels for the system unit. Take a separate place for other equipment. Calculate how many shelves you will need for documents, folders, books and other necessary things. It might be better to put a case to fit all.
Special attention when choosing furniture for the office will take the chair. Correct and comfortable fit – the key to productive work and good health. The chair should have high back, bump for support in the lower back. It should provide the possibility of adjusting the backrest.
Think about how to arrange all the furniture and equipment in the office. First, focus on your own comfort: everything you need should be at hand, to the materials and technology necessary to provide convenient access, cabinets and shelves don't have his massive "crush" on you or create obstacles when you get up from the table. Secondly, try to follow the advice of Feng Shui, some of them are very useful in the workplace. For example, do not place the table near the door or expand it in such a way that the back was not directed to the doorway. Windows are a distraction, especially if they are located in front or back, so to block off their blinds or curtains. It is undesirable to sit in front of the wall, as it creates an obstacle for a look. According to masters of Feng Shui, this entails the inability to generate new ideas.
Consider also the lighting of the workplace: one light is not enough, you need to combine the local light from the top ambient. The lamp is better positioned from a broken hand. Don't overdo it: too bright lighting is distracting.
Last but not the least important item in the arrangement of the office is its design. Choose color and style according to their tastes and preferences. Here you can give a few tips on the effect of colors on performance: for example, if you work at a computer, apply for a job in light green shades, giving rest to the eyes. Best not to choose bright red or dark blue color: the first excites the nervous system, and the second is very comforting and does not tune in a working mood.
Decorate the office with such trifles as a stand for pens, clocks, framed photos, and other useful and beautiful accessories. Keep: toys, decorative pillows and figurines should not be in the workplace.
When the employee is isolated Cabinet at work, he is usually already equipped. But even in this case, you can arrange it by yourself, put flowers in pots, hang a picture, arrange the furniture more comfortable. If the office is designed to receive visitors, don't forget the kettle or the coffee maker. Office for business negotiation must have a strong appearance, and the workplace of the psychologist is to adjust for relaxation.
