Ahome of­fice is so im­por­tant. Get it wrong and you’ll avoid it like the plague. Get it right and your pro­duc­tiv­ity will go through the roof.

It needs to be com­fort­able, at­trac­tive and a re­flec­tion of your taste and style and, most im­por­tant of all, it has to in­spire you to work. Fol­low these three sim­ple tips for de­sign­ing the per­fect work space.

1. If the area is small, take ad­van­tage of the ver­ti­cal space and in­stall shelves or tall stor­age op­tions. Choose fur­ni­ture that is

ver­sa­tile and of­fers stor­age op­tions. Er­gonomic de­sign doesn’t have to be ex­pen­sive and its al­ways worth shop­ping around to find some­thing that fits your bud­get.

2. Try to min­imise the “stuff ”. One of the big­gest chal­lenges of work­ing from home are the blurred lines be­tween home and work life.

Per­son­alise your space with a cou­ple of ac­ces­sories; choose good art­work that re­flects your style, but avoid clut­ter.

3. Fi­nally po­si­tion your of­fice to take ad­van­tage of nat­u­ral light. It re­leases chem­i­cals in the brain that make you feel hap­pier and more pro­duc­tive.
