Over the past two years, more companies are allowing their employees to work from the comfort of their own homes. However, not everyone has as much space as they would like. Continue reading this blog post for our top tips on how to maximise your working space whilst working from home.
Establish A Permanent Working Space
Designated an area that is purely designed for working, whether this is an empty bedroom, a spare room, an office, a dining room, wherever in your home you feel most motivated and prefer to work. If the space you are using is not sufficient enough, you may need a desk for your computer/ laptop to set up a sufficient workstation.
Organise Your Space
Paper trays are a fantastic way to organise your work documents and papers and any other important files you require to work, and it keeps everything in the one space, however, clutter can gather up fairly quickly. Make sure that your workspace is tidy, you will find it easier to work and your mind will be clearer. At the end of each day, it might be a clever idea to tidy your desk and declutter, this will set you up for the next working day. If your working space is small, you will want to make the most out of the space that you have got. Having a small/ cluttered space can feel claustrophobic and demotivating. If your space is still too cluttered, consider decluttering and putting some bits in storage.

Invest In The Right Equipment
When you are working from home one of the worst things that can happen is that your laptop crashes or your Wi-Fi stops working. It is a promising idea and worth the money to invest to ensure that your technology is up to date. When you are maximising your working space, you will want to make sure that you have enough plug sockets you have the space to charge your phone, laptop, and any other equipment that you may need. It might be worth buying an extension lead so you have enough sockets.
Create A Multi-Purpose Home Office
Not everyone has the luxury of creating a working space that is separate from their living area. This is a time to make your space multi-purpose. Sometimes your furniture and spaces can become multi-purpose functioning. Designate a section of your kitchen table to use as a working desk during the working day. A thin desk would fit behind the sofa or in a wide hallway to maximise your workspace.
