How to Transform Your Space to Conducively Work or Study From Home

With remote working and distance learning becoming the new norm, many find themselves needing a home office or study room for the kids or both.

This is challenging for those who do not have spare rooms in their home that can be designated solely for these purposes. However, even if you don’t have a lot of space, you can get creative and transform existing rooms and nooks in your home into areas that are conducive for productivity and learning. Here are a few practical tips to help you get started.

Find a well-lit area

Poor lighting can reduce your energy, cause eye strain, and dampen your mood, so never underestimate the importance of proper lighting. Find an area that is close to a window to enjoy the benefits of natural light, and use blinds or light curtains to adjust to the varying levels of brightness throughout the day. Having a lamp is also a must, especially when you have work to do at night.

Pick a cool and breezy spot

Using air conditioners the entire day may not be an option for everyone. Those looking for an energy-saving alternative should find a spot in their home with good ventilation. Letting in the fresh air can enhance your heart rate, blood pressure, and energy levels. You can also add air-purifying foliage, like spider plants, snake plants, and the like.

Choose the right furniture

Invest in the right furniture to maximize your square footage. Go for furniture and accessories that don’t take up a lot of space. For example, instead of using a large desk, choose a floating desk and keep a mobile pedestal underneath it. You might also want to consider multifunctional pieces like a desk with built-in bookshelves.

Keep your space clean and organized

Having a clean and organized space helps you focus and concentrate, so be sure to store unnecessary items to minimize distractions. Also, having a designated place for all your work or study needs will save you time and set you up for efficiency.

Add a splash of color

While white and neutral colors are versatile, they may look drab and dampen your energy, so dress up your space with paint, wallpaper, curtains, or decor that will make you feel happy and motivated. Keep in mind that some colors are more stimulating than others. For instance, the color blue is said to decrease stress and can improve reading comprehension.

We hope these tips can help you repurpose your spaces to learn and/or work from home more effectively.
