Work From Bed
With the changing millennial lifestyle, newer trends are invented every day. Working out of one's own bed, is one such trend especially for those who want to get straight to work first thing in the morning. The bedroom certainly offers peace and solitude, so invest is a bed that is self-contained with enough storage space to hold your work essentials. A bed with an attached swivel desk and a sturdy backrest will give you a feeling of holistic comfort while working. Don't forget to take a break every hour, stand up and stretch your muscles before resuming work to ease blood flow and refresh yourself.
For those who prefer a more open, clutter-free workspace, create your very own makeshift workstation on the floor. All you need is a cosy rug, a few throw pillows and a small laptop table and a large cup of coffee! This workspace is not only minimalist and chic, it celebrates less is more and helps you get your work done comfortably anywhere whether it is a spot near a breezy window or even a garden. Go in for soothing colours like cool blues, greens or pastels to add a calming effect to your work-from-home experience and light a scented candle or two.
The crowd favourite is a classic, no-frills desk and chair to get ones creative juices flowing. This is a perfect go-to arrangement for those who like to stay organised at all times and do not like a messy workstation. Go in for an easy chair with a soft foam padding specially made for long hours of sitting along, a study table with a couple drawers for storage, and a privacy screen to ensure that you are not disturbed and can focus on the task-at-hand and check off your to-do's for the day.
