Research shows that a person’s attire affects their work performance. Dressing professionally causes the mind to engage a serious business attitude, increasing productivity. Many managers in offices that have adopted a “Casual Fridays” dress code will confirm that the leisure attire induces a leisure attitude causing a decrease in production. If you have a home office, you more than likely have noticed the difference in how much you accomplish when you dress up in professional attire because of a client meeting compared to when you work in sweat pants and slippers because no one will see you.
Likewise is the affect of your surroundings in your office at home. How productive can you be when your computer sits on a wobbly press-board table and you keep moving piles of papers around because you don’t have enough file cabinets to store them in? How easy is it to refer to a client’s invoice if it is kept in a box that is better suited for storing Christmas ornaments in the garage?
Now picture yourself opening the door to your home office and seeing a custom built office designed to take full advantage of the space available. Does your perfect office have maple, cherry, or some other wood tone? Customized work surfaces in the perfect size and shape for optimal work performance? Storage and filing cabinets that are built to maximize limited space while permitting effortless locating of those client’s invoices once relegated to storage boxes? Shelving or cubby holes that are within easy reach or hidden behind tidy cabinet doors? The possibilities of a personalized custom designed office are endless. The only limit is imagination.
Lucky for you, it is not limited to your imagination but that of the company you choose to install your new furniture. Select a licensed company that has many years of experience and offers free design consultation. Ideally they will have a design showroom for you to view examples of their previous design work. Once you have an idea of the style you like, the designer will work with you to prepare a 3-D design that meets your own personal needs.
Once your new home office furniture has been professionally installed, you will be amazed at how its functionality enables you to work more efficiently. The efficiency of being able to locate receipts, invoices, or other important papers on a moments notice will help you save time as well as reduce stress. In fact, your productivity may increase so much that you can wear your bunny slippers to work and still get maximum results.
