Here’s how to create a functional home office space, no matter the size of your apartment. 

Good lighting is key 

Proper lighting will alleviate the strain already on your eyes from your laptop. Set up your workstation near a window. Sunlight and a light breeze help to alleviate your mood.  

Have a designated work area 

You don’t need an entirely separate room for your office space. If the dining room table or kitchen counter aren’t comfortable, invest in a simple fold-away desk solution. And, never work in your bed. It’s bad for your back and you’ll never be completely in the work zone working where you sleep. 

Pens down at the end of the day 

Even if you live in a small space, it’s important to differentiate your work area from your personal space. At the end of the day, pack your laptop, diary and other devices away, to symbolise the end of the workday, and to ease into your personal time.
