If you can work from home then you're one of the lucky ones, and you shouldn't take it for granted. Working from home gives ou a chance to work in real comfort. However if your office isn't set up correctly, you could end up slacking more than you are working. We are a major furniture retailer Bolton, and we can provide you with your home office furniture. But we can't do all the hard work for you!

Home office set up

  • Equipment

Do you really need an industrial sized printer/scanner/copier? Make sure you're aware of your surroundings and how much space you have in your office. Could you suffice with a simple home printer, or could scrap it completely and use the facilities in your local library instead?

For the essential equipment, make sure you have the most up to date WiFi or connectivity. Emails are more than likely going to be your main form of communication, and you don't want to be lagging behind your office based counterparts.

And don't forget insurance!! If you are going to keep expensive equipment in your home, make sure you are covered just in case anything does happen.

  • Privacy

This can be an issue depending on your home inhabitants. If your house is empty, as everyone else is at school and work, then brilliant! However, if you still have a house full when you're trying to work, you need to make sure you have your boundaries. While headphones or the radio may help with the noise; a lock or sign on the door might be useful with letting others know that you're in 'work mode.'

 

  • Organisation

    A messy desk leads to a messy mind.

You will spend the majority of time at your desk, so it makes sense to have everything in order, to allow you to work efficiently. Organisation can be as simple as some labelled drawers, or a filing cabinet. But once you start to be more organised, you'll see that your work will be easier.
