The best home offices strike a balance between formality and comfort. They help us tap into our most productive selves without stress or anxiety.

Here we’ve outlined a few tips you can follow to create a home office that makes you feel your best. We encourage you to read on, and to consider utilizing one of our tips within your own Flagstaff home.

Tip One: Prioritize Natural Light

When it comes to designing a home office choosing a room with natural light and a good view is something you might overlook. However, picking the right location for your office may very well be the key to productivity.

Your office needs to be a place where you enjoy spending time. The prioritization of natural light will ensure that your office welcomes, and will also ward off feelings that you’re stuck in a small, closed off cubicle when trying to get work done. The use of natural light will also lessen the strain on your eyes, and you won’t have to depend so heavily on fluorescent bulbs or the brightness of your computer.

Tip Two: Install Floors That Are Comfortable

Floors are the foundation of any space and set the tone for what a room will be used for. Different types of flooring promote different feelings. For instance, carpet is often associated with coziness and warmth depending on the length and weave of its fibers. Hardwood, on the other hand, evokes a sense of tradition and timelessness.

We suggest that you choose flooring that’s neither too comfortable nor too cozy. A great option is to choose some form of hardwood flooring and accessorize with area rugs, which will allow you to achieve the best of both worlds.

Tip Three: Invest In A Great Chair

If there’s any place where you should invest in seating within a home, it’s in your home office. You’ll likely be seated at your office chair for hours at a time, and therefore it’s worth it to invest in a chair that encourages good posture and comfort. Whether you choose a swivel chair or one with legs, we suggest that you take some time to determine which chair is best for you.
