Canadian businesses have pivoted to stay home working while the corona virus races across the country. That means there are a lot of employees working from home for the first time. One of the first steps to making your remote workday successful is changing the décor.

First off, you’ll need an ergonomic office chair. More than likely you’ll need to move some furniture around to make space for practical items like a desk and maybe a filing cabinet. Don’t forget the decorative features like a small bookshelf and the plant to make the transition smoother.

You might even need to declutter the space that’s going to become your new office even if that’s just temporary.

Lighting

One of the most important things you can’t afford to overlook is the lighting. Research tells us that as little as 15 minutes of exposure to natural lighting can elevate your mood. There’s even data that says natural light can help regulate your health and happiness.

All the more reason to look for the perfect window coverings for your new office. Roller blinds are the right choice for a number of good reasons. First off, these are the modern option to regulate visibility, privacy and the amount of light you get into your new office space.

Here’s a few more tips to make sure you get the right roller blinds working in your home office.

  • You’ll need to produce at home like you did before. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your new view. See through materials are perfect for roller blinds facing the backyard or street. It’s the great choice for work-at-home parents keeping an eye on their kids.
  • On the other side of the coin, a brightly coloured fabric lets the light in while maintaining your privacy for those online meetings.
  • For the most part, it’s best to avoid blackout options. Certain exceptions include bedrooms or windows facing west. There’s even some times of the day where you might need this option to prevent glare on your computer screen.
