If you want to make your remote work assignment better, you will need tools that boost ease, pleasure and efficiency. Here are some suggestions for optimal home office setup. Depending on the required degree of privacy, choose a nook or set aside an entire room for your home office. You can use a grown child’s bedroom, a large hallway, a walk-in closet or even a basement with a window well; options are there, if you look around. Get a signal booster, to ensure that the Wi-Fi is strong. If you’d like, choose a standing or adjustable desk; your desk should be at least the standard 29"-30" height. It must be large enough to accommodate a spread of papers and a couple laptops. Along with the desk, you will need an ergonomic chair whose seat height, tilt and arms are adjustable. Make sure that the chair has lumbar support and moves easily over wood or carpet, with the help of casters. It will help if the noise around your home office space is kept to a minimum. If needed, make a sign (e.g., “silence please” or “do not disturb”). Lighting should include multiple layers (overhead lighting, task lamps and a softer lighting lamp); this will ensure that eyestrain is minimized. Make sure that your desk has a sufficient number of electrical outlets nearby for running devices. The backdrop of your office desk must look professional and well kept, if you will be taking professional video calls and attending professional meetings virtually. Following this list of suggestions will find you prepared to tackle every workday.
