Home Work Pointers

According to a recent study by Telework Research Network, 30 million people work from home at least once a week, and that number is expected to glow by 63 percent over the next years. While dedicating an entire room for a home office is ideal, it's not always practical. With smaller laptops and office furnishings and Wi-Fi connections, work areas can be set up anywhere in the home. Before setting up a workspace at home, here are a few ideas to consider.

Reliable power

Many older homes may not have sufficient power or may lack grounded outlets. An electrician can do a wiring inspection and upgrade outlets and circuits as needed a strong Internet connection is also important. Make sure your DSL or cable modem is functioning well and can handle a demanding workload.

Adequate storage

Storage solutions don't have to be fancy or expensive, but they do need to be tailored to hold everything you need, including reference books, office supplies and files.

Sufficient lighting

Tasks like reading or drafting require lighting that shines directly on the work. For task lighting, use energy- efficient, long-lasting LEDs and a dimmer switch to control levels.

Work surface

The type of work you do will determine the size of work surface you need. A longer, wider area is better for spreading out papers, while a smaller desk may work best for reading documents and making phone calls. If you use a printer every day place it within easy reach.


If you sit for log periods, invest in an ergonomic chair. Though it may cost more, it can provide better comfort and support for your back
