Home Office Design Tips for Remote Workers

With remote work proving to be a successful solution for companies and employees alike, more work from home jobs are beginning to pop up—good news for workers who have been wishing for increased autonomy and more control of their days.


Just as businesses are making strides toward building better processes for their remote teams, remote workers are figuring out solutions to the unique challenges of working from home. If you're already a remote worker, you might know the struggles of keeping work and home life separated and staying productive in a home office

It's important as a remote worker to set boundaries with both your housemates and you work contacts. Many remote workers have trouble "turning off" and with the use of modern technology, remote workers can be contacted at any time of the day or night, especially those on teams distributed across several timezones. It's not uncommon for remote workers to receive emails after hours or even in the middle of the night. Some ways to draw the line between work life and home life are: setting firm working hours on your calendar and completely unplugging when the work day is over.

It's also important to create an inviting space in your home that, if possible, is dedicated exclusively to your work. While working in the kitchen or even from you bed can be tempting, you'll be much more productive in a designated office space. Your office should be quiet, organized and inspiring, the space in which you feel most productive.

This infographic from The Zebra offers additional advice for organizing the home office, staying productive, and setting boundaries for remote work.
