Over the past year, many of us had to leave their offices and start working from home. As the percentage of remote workers is expected to double in 2021, it looks like WFH is here to stay and it might just become the “new normal”.
You may have already made the shift into working from home, but have you curated your workspace accordingly? If not, here are the top home office trends you’ll see everywhere in 2021.
A Dedicated Work Space
Let’s start with the basics. If you are going to be working from home everyday for a long period of time, having a permanent, separated work space is an absolute must.
If you don’t have the luxury of a spare room to turn into a full-time office, then finding a peaceful corner in your house – as far away from distractions as possible – might just be enough to help you get your home office up to par for maximum efficiency.
Ergonomic Office Chair & Spacious Desk
With increasing evidence that sitting down too much can be a risk to our health, now might be the best time to consider investing in ergonomic furniture.
A chair with adequate cushioning and lumbar support can work miracles with the persistent low back pain that has been bothering you for months. Combine this with a spacious office desk and watch your productivity skyrocket!
Standing Desks – The Absolute Trend
Speaking of office desks, the recent popularity of desks that allow you to stand while working is not without reason. In fact, working while standing up is associated with higher productivity and reduced stress levels.
As we spend more time than ever indoors and wellness-focused interior design is beginning to gather momentum, it becomes clear that our home environment should be as comfortable and healthy as possible.
Houseplants for Health and Well-being
Natural elements to decorate your home office are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also greatly beneficial to your health. Plants are therapeutic and, while they have always been essential parts of office décor, we anticipate them being more prevalent than ever in 2021.
To embrace this interior design trend all you have to do is choose one of two indoor plants and place them in your workspace as you please.
Let the sunshine in
Natural light is another hallmark of a healthy and productive work environment. With more remote workers usually spending all daylight hours indoors, it has now become essential to find ways of brightening up the workspace and increasing exposure to sunlight.
Our aluminium bi-fold doors allow maximum sunlight into any room, exploiting maximum glazing and turning a normally dark space into a space full of life.
Even more than natural light, an outdoor view through open windows and glass doors is an effective way of tricking the eye into perceiving more space, thus making a small room feel more spacious.
Our aluminium patio doors give maximum vision through minimal sightline, almost creating the illusion of being outside. This architectural trick is believed to help the mind relax and relieve pressure and stress caused by a heavy workload..
Soundproofing for Deep Focus
Last but not least, soundproofing your home office might be essential in order to achieve deep focus and quiet the mind. With families now spending more time at home than ever, 2021 will see remote workers looking for clever ways to soundproof their workspace.
Our sleek aluminium doors adhere to all noise requirements; their soundproofing system is further enhanced by a soft closing technology, ensuring a more serene and calming atmosphere.
There is no better time than now to upgrade your home office. For more information on what our products can offer your space, check out our online door designer here or contact us on 01924 929 600.
