The Increasing Need for Home Offices
In an effort to reduce the distribution of COVID-19, one-third of the workforce are working remotely full-time. And after pandemic warnings are removed, nearly two-thirds of these remote employees want to continue working from home.
Furthermore, these figures indicate a cultural shift in societal attitudes toward remote work: When compelled to tolerate a virtual workforce, several historically skeptic businesses discovered that their reservations were baseless. If we can work from home, potentially for greater productivity, lower company overhead, and a healthier quality of life, then let’s look at how to design the right home workspaces.
Why Do You Have Tile in Your Home Office?
Although the original stay-at-home orders left people trying to create temporary work-from-home rooms, it is now time to consider setting up more suitable home offices for anyone who will be doing complete or partial remote work on a permanent basis.
For others, turning a seldom-used space (guestroom, man-cave) into a professional nook can suggest finishing an unused space (basement). Others need a room that can perform double duty during off-hours.
Simple to Maintain
Ceramic tile reduces housework by requiring no maintenance: Simply brush with water and you’re ready to roll. Tile is also rust-, itch-, and bacteria-resistant, and allergens including dust mites can be quickly removed (instead of getting trapped in some other surfaces).
Moreover, Easy treatment ensures you can spend less time cleaning and more time focusing on your job while at home.
Options that are hardworking
Another advantage of using ceramic tile in your home office is the wide range of colours, shapes, sizes, and patterns available to help you create the perfect space. Interior design features such as colour schemes and artwork have been found in studies to influence efficiency. You can tap into an inspirational vibe for performance, serenity, inspiration, or all of the above and more with ceramic tile’s an almost unlimited variety of colours and creative styles (including custom-designed exclusive art pieces).
Ceramic tile’s low maintenance and beautiful choices allow you to build a home office space that increases both your satisfaction and productivity.
Home Office in the Kitchen
For certain people who do not have a dedicated workspace at home, the kitchen has been their office. Though we usually avoid makeshift home offices for long-term use, the kitchen makes a lot of sense as a remote workspace.
Furthermore, kitchens normally have seats and a flat work area, meaning you won’t have to rearrange your furniture or (as a last resort) lie on your sofa or bed with your laptop. Make the best of this ready-to-go room by introducing methods to make the everyday transition from home to work to home easier.
- Make a separate storage area for your work supplies and store them securely while not in use.
- Maintain the cleanliness of the surfaces (no one wants PB&J on your R&D report)
- Limit visual distractions—try to organize your office so that neither you nor your Zoom co-workers can see the dirty dishes.
- Make sure you’re relaxed and stick to ergonomic standards.
Your kitchen can also have ceramic tile flooring, countertops, and a ceramic wall or backsplash, which are low-maintenance and versatile. Kitchens that do not have ceramic tile, on the other hand, might be ideal candidates for remodelling, in which case you should rebuild your kitchen with multipurpose features in mind.
