5 Tips for Working Well at Home

Discover below the decorative details that will make all the difference and help you create a cozy and caring atmosphere.

Creating a Work Bubble

Having a room to work at home is ideal, but it’s far from always possible. A small space or a small piece of wall can be enough if they are well organized.

I have installed my workspace in the only room (roughly) available in the house: Noa’s room, which also serves as a closet, and room on weekends (Noa studies the week in Périgueux and has her own apartment)
Initially, I made organizational mistakes. This multi-function piece was too often in a mess. My office took the space of a wall, but I also had storage on the opposite wall. My closet separated these two areas and Noa’s bed stood in the middle.

I realized that I had to divide this room into three separate spaces, nothing had to mix anymore. So I grouped all my stuff in the same corner to create 3 autonomous zones.
This organization has changed everything, it’s as if there are several pieces in ONE.

To accentuate the break between spaces, I chose to paint my corner with a dark color. This very dark grey materializes my work area and visually separates it from the rest of the room.
It also has a double advantage: I am often very distracted by my environment. To be effective, I have to reduce the “visual attempts” that make me digress. This dark wall absorbs light perfectly, and allows me to be focused on my work.

Choose a Practical Office Furniture

I selected 3 technical pieces from the JPG professional catalogue. I wanted them practical – comfortable, multi-functional – aesthetic

I chose an electric desk with easy adjustable height.
I use my desk in a thousand different ways:
To write my emails, retouch my images, to create my paper sets, draw my story boards or make objects of all kinds…

All these missions are not done in the same position, a small electric box is there to allow me to instantly climb /down the desk tray according to my needs.
I must admit that this comfort changes everything, it’s like I have several offices in one room.

Make a Nice Corner

Practical workspace doesn’t necessarily mean ugly and austere office corner.
On the contrary! Select furniture that you will enjoy looking at and incorporating into your décor.

This is the case with these small metal changing rooms
Ideal to store all my little bazaar, they will also be perfect in an entrance to store shoes, I also tested!
I also see them in a living room to store dishes, as a mini-bar, and even in a bathroom in a medicine cabinet.
They lock, convenient to store precious, fragile or dangerous products for children.
The shelves are adjustable in height, and remove if desired, convenient to store my tripods that I can never store in classic furniture!


Take Breaks

To be independent is to be free to manage your schedule. When you have an office outside your home, the working time is compartmentalized by personal time. Just give yourself schedules.
When working from home, it is more difficult to compartmentalize working and personal time and to take real breaks.

Storing the house, extending a machine, vacuuming during the median break for example, is not taking a break!

Putting limits on myself when I work from home, is not always easy. But I know now that silos to be effective are the key.
It does not prevent me to devote sometimes a morning for shopping or storage, but in this case I make it fit in my schedule.
There is nothing worse than juggling from one activity to another to disperse.

Know How to Stop Working

Working from home means being tempted to turn your computer back on after dinner to check one last thing… read the emails by SLR and restart his brain in work mode.

You have to accept to leave an unfinished task, stop working when it’s time and you’re exhausted.
In short, close the office door, even if it sits in the middle of the living room, only to return the next morning only.

Working from home requires us to know each other a little.
The environment, the furniture, and the rituals we choose are important canalizers.

There are also many advantages of work from home of which here are my favorites:
· No transport time, no traffic jams. This saves a crazy time on the one-day program.
· We dress the way we want, and we can stay in slippers all day.
· No noise from noisy colleagues on the horizon

In any case, I have the impression that more and more of us are taking the plunge and being workers in the Home Office.…
