Using Work Zones to
Upgrade your Home Office

A simple home office that offers several work zones accommodates a flexible routine and welcomes many tasks. Break your home office into work zones by determining what activities you want to do in the space at hand. Consider a comfortable seating area for welcoming clients, reading or relaxing. Use a range of storage and display to create a reference library and inspiration area. A comfortable desk and supportive desk chair may be where you want to do your most focused work. For other tasks, you may prefer a drafting table or a taller desk for standing at. Depending on the type of work you do, a large table for sorting materials or organizing images might also be a necessary element in the home office.

One of the easiest ways to zone your home office is through furniture placement. Station a modular desk at the center of the room if you tend to do a lot of walking and multitasking. Another option is to use an alcove or corner to house your desk. Modular storage pieces and bookshelves are a great way to separate different zones within the room. Placing a soft rug beneath the seating area quickly reinforces that zone and adds to the comfortable, relaxed nature of the area.
