Studies have shown, the more
comfortable you are in your work-space, the more productive
you tend to be. Comfort is greatly effected by your
surroundings. If you have attractive, functional furniture on
which to work, the easier it becomes to be more comfortable.
The furniture you choose depends on who you are, what you are
trying to accomplish and the layout of the room itself.
For example, if you are doing accounting, you want a generous
amount of table top space. You also may want computer
furniture and ample drawers. Additionally, you will want file
cabinets and shelving. The type of furniture you choose in
order to accomplish this, can vary greatly. Are you seeing
clients there? If so, making a good impression may be
important. If not, sheer functionality may be your first
choice. Again, it is what makes YOU comfortable.
You want the work-space to invite you in to do your work. If
it is completely unappealing, you will tend to avoid going
into it at all, or, once there, do your best to leave as
quickly as possible. So, choose furniture you are going to
like. Furniture you are going to want to be around. Furniture
that allows you to feel at ease in the space.
This will be the same no matter what your primary task. If you
are doing creative work, structure the room so that your mind
is not distracted by the furniture itself. Create an
environment you can escape into. For each person, this will be
different. Some may want rich woods, others, contemporary
bright space. Determine how and what you will need for your
Then, when shopping, go with your gut feeling of what will
work for you. Generally speaking, this will be a correct
choice for you. Augment your room with complimentary lighting
and wall/window dressings appropriate to your choices. Make it
your space. Experiment, see what works and expand on it.
Evaluate your space and see how much of and what type of
furniture will fit.
Then lay it out in your mind. Put a rough sketch down on a
piece of paper. Use crayon on a napkin or draw it up in
AutoCad, if that is what works for you. This is YOUR
work-space. If you are going to be using equipment, make sure
you choose furniture that is both functional to the pieces you
are going to use, and ergonomic to your body and work
