gZf6t5Mg

Many of us have found a newfound appreciation for home offices, due to the coronavirus pandemic and stay-at-home orders. Even though some restrictions are lifting here, many businesses choose to operate with greater remote work flexibility than before.

People who didn’t invest in their home office design before the pandemic have probably learned a good lesson: It’s smart to have a solid work-from-home setup. Settling for your couch or kitchen table when trying to get work done isn’t the best for productivity or your comfort.

You may be wondering how to improve your home office design. Here are five steps you can take to create a dream work-from-home setup for your Houston, Texas home.

  1. Install a Speaker System

The benefits of speakers for your home office are endless. Speakers can be an extension of your phone and computer, so whenever you have calls or video conferences, you’ll be able to hear everything with top-notch sound quality. If you need a mental break and want to play some music, you can play it on your high-performance home office speakers instead of your computer. In-wall or in-ceiling speakers are great options for enveloping sound — and they won’t take up room on your desk.

  1. Add Lighting Control

Your home office’s lighting can go beyond a lamp or natural sunlight. Lamps don’t necessarily produce the best light for your productivity, and natural sunlight feels nice until it hits your computer screen and produces glare. Instead, you can install human-centric, LED lighting that simulates natural light and automatically adjusts color temperatures throughout the day. Human-centric lighting helps regulate your circadian rhythm (your body’s sleep/wake cycle) and can produce specific tones to stimulate activity and concentration. It can give you the benefits of sunlight without you needing to raise all your shades and worrying about your computer displays.
