Key Factors That Make for a
Great Home Office

 

There’s no question that workforce dynamics have drastically changed in recent years. Remote work has steadily been on the rise, and the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated it even more in 2020. Entrepreneurs are realizing the benefits of working from home, not the least of which are lower overhead costs, no commute, and greater overall agility.

That said, running a home-based business is, in many respects, similar to running one in a traditional office or store setting. It’s still challenging, and you still need a healthy combination of knowledge, skills, and luck. However, you also need a proper workspace that will promote productivity day in and day out. Below, we’ll discuss some of the most essential factors involved in creating a home office or workspace that meets all of your business needs.


The Space 

If you don’t have the space in your home to fit a home office that meets your needs, your first step will be to look for a home that will. Although buying a home requires a significant investment of time, energy, and money, it’s worth it if it means that it will help your business succeed in the long run. Plus, when you work with a real estate expert like Angela Judge, it doesn’t have to be an overwhelming process. She can walk you through loan pre-qualification, help you find the perfect home, and guide you through every other step of the process. 

One thing to prepare for when buying a home right now is the change in guidelines and protocols for COVID-19. While you may be able to tour homes in person, expect to rely on virtual open houses, 3D walkthroughs, and video-chat tours. Once you have the right home for your business, it’s time to choose the location for your office. Put your workspace somewhere that helps you to keep your work and home life separate, provides enough room to store items and work comfortably, and allows you to have access to natural light. 


The Desk

So, you have the right home and space for your office. Now, it’s time to outfit the space, starting with your desk. Make sure your desk has enough surface area to house any equipment, lamps, and other items you need in reach while also providing room to write and perform other work tasks. And ensure that your desk is the right height; the industry standard is 29-inches-high, but your needs may vary if you are taller or shorter than the average person.


The Chair 

The chair you choose for your workspace is also a big deal. Not just any chair will do, especially if you plan on working longer than two hours a day. Invest in a quality ergonomic chair with lumbar support, height adjustment, and wheels. 


The Internet

If you are running a home-based business, it most likely means that much of your work will be dependent on your Internet service. You don’t want your Internet speed to be less than 50 Mbps, and if other people in your household will be using the Internet at the same time as you are working, then you will probably need to go with a faster speed. Moreover, Wi-Fi should suffice if you mainly do basic office work, but you might consider installing an Ethernet connection if you plan on doing tasks that require a lot of bandwidth (like video). 

There are many benefits to running a business out of your home. But to reach long-term success, you must have a workspace that accommodates your business needs. As you plan your home office or workspace, be sure to thoughtfully consider the home and space themselves, as well as your desk, chair, and Internet service and connection. While there are other factors that play a role in creating the perfect home workspace, taking care of these will help you lay a solid foundation to build upon.
