An office at home has many meanings, but to us it means more than just any space. It’s a space where we’re most productive and also where we are able to get the most out of our day if we worked there.

Our Insights

What makes an office at home you ask? It has to be a combination of correct lighting, ergonomics, personalisation, cleanliness and neatness. An office at home shouldn’t be boring but at the same time. It should be messy. Jordan Pulmano really put together a clean setup to demonstrate that he isn’t messing around when it comes to working from home.

Interesting fact about working from home

Speaking about working from home, there is an interesting fact going around that more than half of the remote workers work more than 40 hours a week. This means, you almost spend more time in this little space than you do in any part of your house, except for your bed of course. It’s worth the investment to get some better lighting for your desk setup. We have always recommended monitor lamps, so have a look because they really help!

Back on topic, the lighting is great in these shots more important we love the placement of the furniture to get things really neat. What do you think?

How can you get your office at home featured?

Understanding how to put together a setup is one thing but actually doing it is another. We feature a lot of different setups from people all over the world but there are still those that don’t make it. If you want to get your setup featured as part of our office at home series, try considering these photography tips.

  1. Is there enough lighting for the photo? Whilst dark shots are quite moody, a lot of the time it’s much easier to stage a bright shot with the natural lighting from the window. Just like the following desk setup from @maybejensen
  2. Are there too many items on the table? Whilst we say we’re a minimalist desk setup blog, not all of the setups we feature are minimal. The main reason is that it’s quite hard to get the setup to a minimal level and also the term minimal is quite subject. Not everyone can achieve something that can be truly minimal because that would just become a desk with a laptop on it. Which isn’t very practical. We like to focus on having something that is minimal
  3. Are the cables showing on my office setup? Whilst cables are kind of essential in most cases, we really advocate for wireless peripherals especially in this day and age where it’s relatively cost-efficient and practical to use wireless mouses or keyboards.
  4. Is the image in focus? You don’t always need a DSLR camera to take good photos these days most flagship phones or phones in the mid-price range take pretty good photos in bright light. This is also one of the main reasons why I encourage people to use heaps of natural lighting for their photos.
