One of the biggest adjustments for workers and students this year has been the focus on working remotely. And while it sounds like a dream for some, it’s also important to consider how you are going to create a professional, efficient and hi tech space that will allow you to thrive. ESAR specialises in home office furniture and offers some simple tips for decking out your space if you’re working from home or you have kids heading back to school.

Buy A Desk

You don’t have to have a spacious office with four walls in order to create a productive workspace. In fact, with a little planning and imagination, you can transform even the most high traffic, multi-use areas into your new work or study zone. Choosing a desk that works for your space as well as your daily requirements is the first step in designing your new home office. L shaped desks are great for maximizing the usability of tight corners. If you need a more flexible solution, try a lightweight desk or one with castors so you can easily move it around to suit your needs. You can also add storage space with a moveable filing cabinet, that sits comfortably under your desk. If you need more space for your documents and supplies, why not choose a desk with a hutch for overhead storage? Think of your space and how you’d like to use it before deciding on your ideal desk.

Upgrade Your Computer Or Technology

Offering increased efficiency, storage and intuitive capabilities, it’s important to reassess your computer and office technology if you’re working from home. There are many affordable options out there, but it’s often difficult deciding what it is you’ll actually need. Our team at ESAR can help you find the right computer or tablet to suit your needs, with options including traditional desktops, laptops, 2-In-1-PCs, Chromebooks, Apple Mac Computers, Microsoft Surface and many more.

Get Zoom Call Ready

With the office and school closures this year, we all had to learn adjust to having online meetings in the comfort of our own home. Organising a Zoom call instead of a face-to-face meeting may be quick and convenient, but you also have to be aware of your surrounds and make sure your call is not invading your private life (or vice versa). If you can’t sit with your back against a wall, try to create a little more privacy with a few well-placed pot plants, sofas or bookshelves. Not only will it shield your home from prying eyes, it will help you create a more relaxed and welcoming home office environment.
