It seems that the long, early morning commutes are now a thing of the past and instead we have the next best thing, an office down the hallway! When covid hit, many people were told to work from home and had to quickly improvise to find an office space somewhere in the house. But did you ever get round to perfecting this space and creating your ideal office, or did time simply slip away from you? At the Handy Squad, we can lend a helping hand to finalise your home office and create the best space to enhance productivity. Contact us today to get a free quote for your office renovation project.
Where to start?
The first vital component of any office space is, of course, furniture, especially a chair to sit at and a desk to work from. There are so many different designs and colours to choose from, so you will without a doubt find something to match your theme.
Another important tip to follow is to look for online reviews of furniture that you’re considering buying, particularly your office chair. Sitting at a desk all day, staring at a computer isn’t exactly ideal and can cause a range of back problems, so try to find a chair that is valued for its comfort, as this will improve both your posture and productivity.
At the Handy Squad, we can help assemble flatpack furniture for your office, because we understand how stressful and time-consuming this job can become. Not only this but we also offer services to lift and shift furniture, so whether you’re buying a desk that comes flat pack or need help moving one from your garage that you now use as a storage space, we can help!
Picking the perfect colour for your office walls is another important step in creating a productive working space. It’s a good idea to add a splash of colour to your office, using flowers, plants, cushions and hanging pictures. However, when it comes to the colour of your walls remember that although a bright colour like yellow or pink might look great to begin with and awaken you in the early mornings, these colours could very quickly give you a headache when trying to concentrate.
Our London decorators can help advise you on the best colour for your office space, such as a light blue tone which brings tranquillity and brightness to a room. We provide a range of painting services including painting offices, painting doors, painting stairs, painting cupboards, painting skirting boards and more! So maybe it’s not just your walls that need painting, it might be the skirting boards and furniture too, but lucky for you we cover it all.
Sorting your electrics
Now, obviously, an office needs a good Wi-Fi connection and electrics to function as a productive space. You may need to consider adding a Wi-Fi booster to ensure a strong connection or implementing more plug sockets for your various computers and monitors. At the Handy Squad, we have a team of qualified electricians in London who can install new plug sockets or wire a new lighting circuit for whatever it may be that you require.
Tidy loose cables
Keeping your office space tidy is still essential for productivity, so you don’t want loose wires hanging around and causing a potential trip hazard. We also offer a cable tidying service to help resolve this so not only will your office be functional, but tidy too!
You could perhaps consider installing a cabinet to help hide wires and store extra office supplies as well, like pens, paper and folders. There are endless ways to design your office space for optimal productivity. If this is something you would like us to help with then give us a call on 0800-0-12-12-12 or fill in our online form.
