Make Over Your Home Business Office

By Tom Doerr

If you have a home office and do more than just check our facebook all day, perhaps you own a small business or work from home, you could make it a much more enjoyable place to be. There are things you can do with a small office that just wouldn’t work for a huge corporate workspace.

An office usually revolves around a computer so your first priority is to make sure you and your employees have modern, good quality computers. Some people i.e. creative designers require specific. No matter what computer you need, have a large, quality monitor which will make sitting in front of it all day much easier and prevents squinting. Twin monitors are very convenient and will help speed up your work and assist multitasking. Decent computers are less likely to crash or lose all your data which is something that every small business could do without.

Invest in some quality data storage systems to protect and store all your data and work, large hard drives that will automatically back up data and can be stored off site are relatively cheap and easy to install. This is vital in case of a virus or hack that threatens your work and can be set up relatively easily. When you are assembling the office, label each end of every wire with a simple tag or label so when you need to fix/remove/swap anything it is stress free.

Buy some mobile filing cabinets to store any files or paperwork, these are ideal as they can be moved around when needed and you can store them in rows if need be. Having enough storage space will ensure organisation and keep your office tidy.

Have somewhere comfy to sit; a large, leather executive office chair is ideal so you aren’t tempted to leave your desk for the sake of a numb backside. A sofa is a nice addition too, it is somewhere to sit down and brainstorm without wandering out of the office. If it folds out to a bed then you can always sleep there if you have to.

Decorate the office with personal things, memorabilia or old photos, something that breaks up the white walls but doesn’t cause you to stare at them all day. Pick out some funky lighting so in those long winter nights you’re not zombified by incandescent strip lighting.

Place a small beer fridge in the office, it will cure hunger, save trips to a kitchen and occasional snacks and breaks are motivational. Its good to have ways of relaxing but you don’t want to affect productivity so stock the latest magazines or newspapers rather than books which are more time consuming.

Some people think the ultimate office has the biggest fish tank possible, a very 80′s frame of mind and these are costly and time consuming. You could even end up looking like a dentist waiting room. Instead, invest in a large, flat screen TV which you can use for all sorts of things from having the news on in the background to presentations and slideshows.

Offices benefit from all kinds of unusual gifts and unique gifts people give for christmas or birthdays such as USB toys etc.
