5 Ways to Build a Ultra-Productive Home Office

If you are working from home, your goal is to design an office space that is both comfortable as well as productive. I have worked from home for over 10 years. I’ve tried every office configuration imaginable. Sometimes it helped my productivity. Other times it killed it. 

I know what works and what doesn’t. 

Just like in real estate, location, location, location

The single best technique to building a productive office is to choose the right location. This means your dinner table or family room is out of the question. Why? Because those areas of the house tend to have the most distractions.

Invest in a comfortable chair

Remember, you’ll likely be sitting in your office chair for several hours during the day. Don’t skimp on this critical piece of equipment. 

Make your workspace feel like an office

And believe it or not, putting yourself into a professional workspace can help you be more productive. It separates you from the rest of your living space and puts you into the right frame of mind for a day of work. 

Use an adjustable desk for sitting and standing

Lifehack wrote that standing can double your productivity. And, I agree. Not only will standing up get your blood flowing, but it also lets you move around a bit more. Sitting is related more to relaxation while standing is associated with work, Lifehack argues.
