"Wanna work from home?"
Do you work from home? Would you like to? If you answered yes, you’re not alone. If you answered no, read this article and you may just change your mind. According to research, 1 in 5 Americans work from home at some point during the week. That’s 30 million of us.
I work from home often. When I first began doing so I had no desk, no office space. I tried to work sitting in a chair with my laptop. That was too cramped. For a time, I worked standing at my dresser…not enough room. I moved to the dining table where I had plenty of space to spread out, but had to clear my “desk” in time for dinner!
It was clear I needed furniture for my office away from the office.
To meet the demand for home office furniture, many manufacturers are designing products to fit into the small spaces often set aside for a home office. These pieces are designed to optimize space by providing desk and storage in a small “footprint”. Some with more attractive designs, to fit nicely into your home. Here is a great example of a small footprint, standing height office, featuring the HON 10500 series.
A great company to consider when purchasing home office furniture is BBF. They boast of having installed over 10,000 Home Offices for Fortune 100 companies! They have assembled a brochure dedicated to helping you find work from home furniture, within your budget. Check it out here.
Working from home can get lonely. It’s easy to get distracted by laundry, dishes or taking the dog for a walk. And, there’s the risk of feeling disconnected from the boss or the team. That’s where personality, discipline and technology play a factor.
If you like working alone, at least part of the time and you can ignore household distractions, it may be a perfect fit for you. And, with today’s technologies, it’s easy to join in on meetings or chats with fellow team members. And just think about this, no more rush hour traffic, it saves money and time, no more funky smells from the company kitchen and no more office invasions… You get the idea.
So, if you’re thinking of carving out a little space at the house for an office, EOD has plenty of options for furniture to make working from home a lot more productive. Give us a call and let us help you get started!
