Right now, Americans working from home outnumber their office-bound peers by almost 50%.
So, if you’ve accepted the fact that you might be working from home for much longer than anticipated, perhaps it’s time for a home office revamp.
Remodeling, revamping, and restocking your office is a good way to get 2021 off to a flying start.
These are your top priorities for restocking your workstation during an office remodel.
1. All Those Little Things That Go Missing
If you’ve stayed cooped up at home for the longest time, there’s a good chance your home office supplies are dwindling. It’s time to stock up on the most commonly-used office basics.
Paperclips, staples, pens, and rubber bands are among the most-used office supplies, and they’re still important during the age of paperless-everything.
2. Major Office Remodel Essentials
A new year’s a good time to invest in better posture and combat all those work-related aches and pains. Good-quality ergonomic chairs are a must for the modern-day office or home workstation.
Poor posture leads to several maladies that can affect your health and productivity, so an ergonomic chair’s an investment in a healthy pain-free future.
Perhaps it’s time to ditch chairs altogether and replace them with standing desks. Many enthusiasts swear they’re more productive behind a standing desk.
3. Safer Spaces
Cleanliness has become a matter of survival in modern times. So, there’s never been a better time to stock up on cleaning and sanitizing office supplies for your office.
Anti-bacterial wipes, sanitizing sprays, and germicidal cleaners are best for ensuring your office space stays safe and sanitary.
The fewer-germs-the-better is a mantra that the whole world’s taken up. Stockists of Japanese office supplies are even selling anti-bacterial folders and files at the moment.
4. Desk Organizers
A tidy desk leads to a tidy mind, but it’s difficult to stay motivated about a neat workspace without a supervisor breathing down your neck.
It’s time to get organized and efficient. Take time getting to grips with the mess that’s taken over your desk by bringing in some desk organizing supplies for your office.
Sort the clutter into piles according to things you use often, pending work, and completed tasks. Buy some trays for paperwork, and desk organizing gadgets to keep essential items close to hand.
Put up shelves close by for those stray files that seem to spend all their time on your desk.
5. Electrical Issues
Effective task lighting’s essential to prevent eye strain and fatigue. Buy a good energy-efficient lamp so you can dim the overhead lights and focus on the tasks at hand without squinting.
Also, don’t you think it’s time you sorted out all those wayward cords and plugs trailing around your office? Buy a multiplug adaptor and sort them all out once and for all.
