Working from home has many advantages, including no travel time, fewer interruptions, and greater control of your work environment, to name a few. However, it also commands thoughtful decisions on how to function most efficiently and how your workspace can help. Creating a home office in your bedroom will assist you in remaining safe and energized during the day. You may design the perfect workstation, and there are numerous fantastic ideas to choose from.

Many of us would probably prefer a single office over an office-bedroom combination. If that isn't an option, establishing a dedicated workspace in a bedroom may be the next best thing. Planning makes it as conducive to productivity as possible. 

You'll want to have an ergonomic home office when creating your bedroom office. The purpose of an ergonomic home office is to configure your workspace to fit you as a person and the work you do. As you apply ergonomics to your office space, the bedroom office design ensures that work is effective, secure, and in a way is healthy.

Here are some things to keep in mind when setting up your bedroom office:

Get your desk and chair right.

Have your desk face away from your bed.

It's a good idea to put your desk facing a wall or a window. When you work with your back to the bed, you will be less distracted by images of your comfortable mattress and soft pillows.

Better yet, get a sit-stand deskalso known as a height-adjustable desk or a standing desk.

The anti-collision feature ensures protection by preventing the desktop from being damaged or other items and devices crushing when it is in motion.

Get a comfortable chair.

The chair you sit in while working has a significant impact on your health and comfort. If you aren't using the chair much, you have more leeway to prioritize aesthetics over functionality. In either case, you'll want to invest in a supportive and comfortable chair, ideally of the ergonomic kind.

Benefits of ergonomic chairs:

● reduces neck and back pain

● corrects posture

● adjustable

● increases productivity

● improves mood and energy

● provides support for the most comfort

Separate the two areas.

It is crucial to maintain clear differentiation between work and relaxation areas. If you have space, keeping the physical distance between your bed and desk is a simple solution. Another efficient way to distinguish work and sleep areas is to use a curtain or mirror. Closing the curtain when done is a simple way to indicate the end of the workday.

Have sufficient lighting.

Proper lighting is essential for your eyes, efficiency, and morale. If your bedroom has a window, position your desk near it and make the most of the natural light by keeping the blinds wholly open or half-open if there is a glare. 

If there isn't a window, use bright yet warm overhead lighting, desk lamps, or both. It would be best if you stopped using lighting that casts a shadow on your computer screen. One method for avoiding glare is to use task lighting such as the Task lamp TA1004BK behind the screen.

Ensure that you have enough storage.

This tip is critical because a cluttered environment leads to a cluttered mind, which means you won't be able to concentrate on your job or turn off your brain when it's time to relax. Storage systems make it easier to find, which decreases tension.

If you want to be minimalist, scan all of your relevant documents to your machine and toss the originals (but only after you've backed them up). If paperwork is inevitable, use a mix of shelves and file storage to keep things organized and easily accessible. 

Consider who else is using the space.

If you're going to share an office with someone else, make sure it's not too crowded. Separate the two areas as much as possible if there is enough room. Also, discuss how you can avoid distracting or irritating each other when working.

Remind yourself that the only thing that matters about your workspace is that it helps you complete tasks in the most stress-free and productive manner possible. If that means working from a patio chair, under a weighted blanket on the couch, or in a tiny office space you created in your bedroom, so be it.
