Spruce Up Your Home Office to Make Work-From-Home Work for You

Investing In A Home Office For The Long Haul
Establishing a distinct home office or dedicated workspace goes a long way toward making work-from-home employees happy and healthy, experts say.
In some cases, the process can be as simple as decluttering a desk and setting it up to meet your work-from-home needs. A new coat of paint, quality lighting and even some green plants or fresh flowers can make a big difference, too. In other cases, work-from-home employees may want to complement that desk with wall treatments to make it feel like a fully furnished office rather than just a standalone desk. One easy DIY way to do that is by installing shiplap.
“In a home office space, shiplap works great as either an accent wall, ceiling, or half-wall application,” Hall said. “Unlike new office furniture, you can restyle a room for $500 or less depending on the square-footage of the area you want to cover.
“Use our coverage calculator to help you determine how many kits of shiplap you may need.”
If you enjoy spending time in your home office or workspace, chances are you’ll be happier at work. And if you’re happier at work, chances are you’ll be much more productive.
What can you do to your home office or workspace to make it a better place to spend your day? Take a look at these beautiful work-from-home spaces for ideas:
