5 Decorating Tips for Your Mobile Home Office
These days, more people are working remotely than ever. Many families we help choose a double wide mobile home to ensure they have space for a home office. The best home office is flexible and functional, allowing you to use it to its maximum potential. Due to limited space, some families create a home office within a different room. This makes it even more important to decorate with intention.
Starting with a blank canvas, you can go in many different directions when decorating your mobile home office. Below are some suggestions for transforming your office into your favorite room.
Shelves are the best way to maximize the space in your double wide mobile home. Rather than taking up room on the floor, mounting a shelf allows you to incorporate all home office elements without sacrificing space. You can even mount a desk to the wall! A mounted desk folds when you’re done with it, so it is out of the way. We recommend mounting your desk to the wall if you plan on using the home office for another purpose, such as a playroom or guest room.
Files on the Go
Your home office doesn’t need to be an elaborate DIY project. If you’re looking for a simpler option, consider investing in a mobile file cabinet. This will make moving all of your files around the house easier, as you won’t have to make multiple trips back and forth. It could even be used as a nightstand or a counter in your living room/kitchen. A mobile file cabinet might not be a good idea if you’re working on a shag carpet, so invest at your discretion.
Invest in a Quality Chair
If you actually want to use your home office, the key is comfort. It is too easy to take your laptop and post up on the couch when you work remotely. A high-quality office chair ensures you will sit at your desk and use your office, allowing for a better work/life balance. If you spend the workday in your home office, it is best to have a comfortable and supportive chair. Keep your eye out for quality pieces for sale online.
Use Natural Light
No one wants to sit in a dungeon all day. Natural light is your best friend when you work from home. Choose a room in your home that lets natural light in through the windows. The University of Chicago found that exposure to daylight positively impacts productivity, sleep, and quality of life. Prioritize natural light to make the most out of your home office.
Consider Video Chat Professionalism
You don’t necessarily see your coworkers daily when you work from home. That said, you want to make a good impression when you see them on video chat. One consideration is what the backdrop of your video will be in your home office. Some workers invest in screens to cover their backgrounds, but you may want to design a professional, aesthetically pleasing office that you like to show off.
