5 Home Office Upgrades to Complete Your Space

    If you run a business out of your living space, or simply need a nook to work on your finances or groom your Pinterest board, the following tips can help you upgrade that home office.

    Splurge on something inspirational.

    Light it right.

At the same time, fluorescent lighting can lead to headaches. Set up your work station by a window for natural light in the daytime, and set up a few good lamps around the room to ensure you can light the space adequately.

    Upgrade your storage.

    Create a “Do Not Disturb” signal.

    Support your body.

A kneeling desk chair can support your back, while raising your monitor to eye level can ease neck pain. You can also have a small yoga space tucked into your office where you can take a short break to stretch out before you get back to it.
