WESTMINSTER, ENGLEWOOD, DENVER, CO …Not too long ago, the home office used to mean the
corporate headquarters of a company.
With more and more people running businesses out of their home or telecommuting to their “day job” a day
or more a week, the home office has had to become every bit as functional and comfortable as the cube or
office at work. Even more so. To that end, DirectBuy of Southeast Denver and DirectBuy of Northwest
Denver, the leading members-only showroom and home design centers, have some helpful tips on setting
up your home office.
For starters, DirectBuy recommends drawing a floor plan of the room or area where your home office will
be. Your floor plan should include markings of where the electrical outlets are and accurate measurements
of the heights of the windows, doorways and any closet space to give you additional design options.
“If you’re going to be spending significant time in your home office, from eight to 20 hours a week or
more, you’re going to want a space that’s a little more comfortable, functional and aesthetically pleasing
than the spare room or corner of a room that’s passed for a home office in years past,” said Gerald Reif,
owner of DirectBuy of Southeast Denver. “Many of our members work with our designers to create not
only a comfortable workspace for one or members of the household, but also a room you’ll want to show
off to guests.”
Some of the things you may want to consider in planning your office space:
? Ergonomic chairs, desks, and other office pieces.
? Lower shelves so you can reach for books, folders and other items without strain.
? Lighting under workspace shelves to make it easier to read.
? A mount or platform for your computer monitor so you can look at the screen without tilting your head
up or down.
? Neutral soothing colors for your walls like tea
