Adjusting to the New Normal: Are you Ready to Work from Home?
Though many are forced to do so now, Kate Lister of Global Workplace Analytics (GWA), estimates that we will see 25 – 30% of the workforce working from home one or more days a week within the next two years. Moreover, most of us WANT to work from home. We’re actually more productive, we earn more, and we have more control over our environment.
In order for us to be most productive, happy and creative, our environment needs to support us the best it can. Spending all that time in your house means you’ll be staring at the same furniture day in and day out. Which is great if your home is what you’ve always dreamed it to be. If it’s not, then it’s time to choose some pieces that you love, colors and textures that will bring you joy and arrangements that will offer you sanctuary and focus.
It’s a brave new world. And easier than ever to finally design your home the way you’ve always wanted it to be. Maybe it’s simple – design new window treatments, replace the rug, or get that one, perfect chair. Maybe a new paint color will help you create the perfect office space. Or perhaps it’s finally time to begin considering the addition to your home – your dream home office.
When the virus dissipates and we’re back to work in earnest, builders and contractors will be swamped. Now is the time to line things up in order to be at the front of the line.
It’s more important than ever to consider the effects of your home’s interior design on your health, creativity and productivity. The more time you spend there, the more of an impact the Biophilic design of the space – its connection to nature – will have. (For more information on Biophilic Design, click here).
