Since the existence of computers and the internet, working from home has become more popular. With the new reality of the Coronavirus pandemic, working at home has made many realize that the HOME OFFICE must be comfortable and workable.
The existence of the home office has brought many advantages for workers: flexible work schedules, more comfort for work in their home, and less commuting costs. But there are also certain weaknesses: inability to concentrate, family interruptions, and very small spaces. Fear not, for there are many solutions, and having a home office is easier than you think.
The first thing to look at is a work space that reflects your style. Whether that is simple but comfortable, classy and modern, or eclectic and bold. Know that improvements in the office environment have a substantial effect on positive changes for the worker. In the right settings, your motivation, creativity, success and happiness will improve with the correct arrangement of space, light and flow of energy, air, the presence of natural and organic details. That is why it is important to have a good space for your home office.
A home office should be a practical and comfortable space. With many hours spent inside the office, you need to know what works for you. Some considerations to think about: how much storage space will you need? What furniture is needed? What about backgrounds for conference calls? Even a minimalist space should contain enough shelving and cabinets. On the other hand, too much furniture can bring chaos to the room. Balance is imperative.
Another thing to consider is how easy will it be to clean? While turning a space into a home office, you don’t want to make more work for yourself keeping it clean.

What if there isn’t a room for an office? What if the office is an area of the living room? Do not be afraid, you can give the smallest place a feeling of spaciousness and modernity with the use of light-colored materials. Policrete Cement Liquid Porcelain comes in a variety of colors and textures that will make your small space feel large. Avoid dark colors as they tend to make spaces shrink. Choose light, creamy colors for a visual trick. Also, consider using cement walls and even desks to give the feeling of having a large desk.
Remember to pay attention to the color palette. Bold colors like fuchsia, turquoise or dark emerald are not desirable in an office setting. Neutral grays or beiges or other pastel colors are a much better choice. They allow you to better concentrate on work and responsibilities.
