How To Ensure Homeworking Is Done Successfully


How to make homeworking work for you

Many of those who have had no choice but to work from home over the last 12 months will have never done it before and discovered that it requires a series of things. 

Firstly, that you must treat it like being in your usual office. So that involves getting up on time, getting dressed properly, staying connected with colleagues and not over-extending your breaks. 

The other realisation will be that you need a settled and comfortable workspace indoors at home. 

We can advise you on how to get that organised, if at present, your work area isn’t providing the best of setups:

French / Patio / Bi-Folding Doors

Are you working in a dark spot? That won’t help you be productive. What you need to introduce into the space is a set of French, patio or bi-folding doors. 

Now that it’s spring, you will get so much sunshine coming through the glazed sections of these three fabulous door solutions, and it’s proven that light exposure keeps your energy levels high. 

They will also enable you to open out the office when it’s hot outside so that you don’t miss the outdoors when working away.

Roof Lantern / Skylight

Don’t have a section of wall in the ‘office’ where you can position French, patio or bi-folding doors? For an alternative, see if you can incorporate a roof lantern or skylight into the ceiling. 

It’ll give you an almost complete glass covering as the framework in a modern roof lantern or skylight is close to non-existent. 

You won’t have to worry about the glass making the space too hot in summer due to glass with very low U-values being used.

Home Office Extension

For a permanent homeworker it could be best to create a permanent workspace by having a home office extension added to the house. 

You can influence the finished design and request the inclusion of a skylight or bi-folding doors, and very much personalise it for your individual working needs. 

Home offices are in big demand at the moment, so investing in one will enhance the value of your house and put you in a good position to sell it in the future.
