30 Inspiring Workspace Examples & Design Tips
I came to this conclusion (cited above) after renovating my home-office and noticing how my productivity skyrocketed to a level I never knew existed. It was only after I got myself a more comfortable chair, a bigger desk and a nice desktop lamp that I started to understand how I willingly undermined my workflow with my previous setup.
Designers, developers, writers, and anyone who spends a considerable amount of time in front of their computers should pay attention to effective workspace design. For some, effective could mean a really comfortable chair and a minimalistic setup, for others, whose jobs may be more creative-driven, a heavily personalized scene is required to max out their potential.
1. Keep Your Desk Clean & Tidy
A cluttered desk is the deadliest of all sins in workspace organization and a great way to clog up your inspiration. Get rid of unnecessary items so you can focus more on the task at hand. Getting distracting objects out of your eye-sight and placing the monitor as your primary attention target will help you procrastinate less and do more.
2. Room Lightning
This is perhaps the most prominent aspect in all of the wonderful workspaces featured in this article. If you’ve been blessed with a room that gets enough sunlight, proper design will help you take advantage of it without the glaring effects. If you’re working from your basement though, a nicely designed desktop lamp is necessary to reduce eye-strain.
