Despite the end of lockdowns, working from home looks to remain a part of many of our lives. With no commute, flexible schedules, and the comfort that comes from working in your own space it’s no wonder that people all over the world are continuing to embrace this new way of living.
The trouble is that before the pandemic many of us did not have a space in our household that was actually dedicated to working on a long-term basis. Establishing a clear boundary between work and recreational space within the home is vitally important to our productivity during work hours and mental wellbeing outside of them.
Depending on the size or layout of your home this is not always the easiest thing to achieve but don’t worry, Capra Designs is on hand with some handy tips and tricks.
Distinctive interior decor objects such as large plant pots and an accompanying plant can also act as a physical divide between two spaces. Our Large Etch Planter and Large Summit Planter would be perfect for this need.
Keeping your workspace as neat and organized as possible can also help prevent your workspace from encroaching into your private space. A large designer tray can help keep all your stationary and papers in a single place while also creating a calming aesthetic.
3. Incorporating added verticality to your work area can create the illusion of it being larger than it actually is. Bookshelves serve the dual purpose of enhancing the feel of your workspace and adding some much-needed storage. The obvious use of a bookshelf is to efficiently store your files and other papers. However, this should also act as a space to display some touches of warmth and comfort. A curated selection of plants can be a soothing addition to any workspace.
We particularly recommend the Eros Vase - an eye-catching single stem vase that perfectly complements any existing decor.
4. Leading on from our third point, plants and plant pots really are an ideal way to enhance any space and bring a sense of tranquility. You really can’t go wrong with your placement; next to your laptop or monitor, hanging from the rafters, adorning your new bookshelf, any free space is space made for a leafy friend. It has been proven that plants help to promote productivity whilst also relieving stress within the work place. Just be careful not to overdo it. The idea is to create a tranquil oasis of productivity, not a jungle of distraction.
Our small designer planters are available in a wide range of designs and are the perfect size for the desk or a bookshelf. Mix and match different styles to create an intriguing but harmonious overall aesthetic.
