Are You Hiding Your Home Office?

You’re not sure when you actually crossed the line, but last Saturday night’s dinner party stopped you cold in your tracks. Up until then, you had liked your husband’s co-worker’s wife Amanda. She was friendly and quick to help clear the dinner table, but then she was relentless questioning you on how it was it to work from home? Was it hard to separate your work life from your personal life? Where was your office?

And then, her inquisitive nature took over as she reached for the door handle to the spare room, innocently asking “Is this your office?” At that point, it all became a blur. You swiftly jumped in front of the door, resembling a fierce NHL linesman as you checked her frail physique into the living room. Wide-eyed and stunned, you nervously helped her up and stated “I just keep the door closed when I’m not working”. The evening went on without a hitch, but you knew. Deep down inside you were ashamed of your office and the time had come to do something about your problem.

We’ve all made the best of what ‘s available in creating a make-shift office. Once I named it professional “multitasking” as I set-up my laptop on one end of the ping-pong table, with an area for folding laundry on the other.

Are You Hiding Your Home Office?

Welcome to the new Bush Furniture blog!

According to Forbes magazine, in 2013 one in five (or approximately 30 million) Americans were working from home at least once a week. That number is expected to increase by 63% over the subsequent 5 years. Many who work from home or telework have an entire room in their homes dedicated to their home office, while others share their office space with a study, guest room, dining or the like.

Here’s what we think are the 3 most important steps to setting up the ideal home office space.

Step One– selecting furniture. The right office furniture is very important. It allows you to showcase your style and helps ensure a productive work environment . You need to select a desk and storage pieces that compliment the work you’ll be doing, your personality and style, and the room it’s in. Bush Furniture has more than 10 collections that are ANSI SOHO certified for you to choose from for your home office. This includes our Cabot Collection, which is our #1 online seller. It’s wide selection includes: desks, hutches, lateral file, and bookcases. This means you can furnish an entire in home office, or that corner of your guest room easily and affordably! Remember your office furniture should work with you, not against you.

Step Two – staying organized. Working in a well organized environment means you’ll work more efficiently and you’ll be better prepared. In turn you’ll feel happier about getting work done. Bush Furniture’s ANSI SOHO collections provide you with integrated technology for charging and storage of personal electronics, ample store compartments to help keep work surfaces clutter-free, file drawers that accommodate letter-,legal-, and A4-sized files and wire management.

Step Three – making your workspace your own. There are many ways to personalize your home office. Whether it’s hanging your degrees, accomplishments or state required documents, or by adding a personal touch like hanging a picture of family and friends or a small plant/vase of flowers. Just remember that first and foremost, this is your workspace. So these personal touches should not distract or take over that clean work space you made my keeping your office supplies and work paperwork organized!
