Interior designer shares insight on home office design
on Wednesday,June 15,2011 02:06
Employers who work from home tend to not have a lavish home office. However, it may be the key ingredient to make someone work harder and be more productive. An interior designer from Philadelphia shares a couple tips for creating a home office.
Donna Hoffman believes that people need to start thinking about putting things in their office that they find aesthetically pleasing. It is also important to remember that function comes first, including any area for kids to play while keeping an eye on them or a coffee machine. Doors must be closed, otherwise, people will find themselves back at their desk.
"Today's high performance virtual executive craves better life balance, which now includes home work environments that are not only high function, but also high octane for enhanced productivity, and high pleasure for enhanced focus, creativity and satisfaction. In other words, a computer, a swivel chair and writing desk just don't cut it," Hoffman said.
Prospective interior designers may have the chance to land a job once they graduate from their programs. According to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in this field is expected to increase by 19 percent between 2008 and 2018.
