Home Office

Dos:

  • Place your desk in the power spot, the area directly opposite the door.
  • Add sensual objects and artwork to inspire resourcefulness and productivity.
  • Bring in rounded shapes and move sharp-edged furniture out of the traffic flow.
  • Add healthy plants, which are beneficial to counter-balance the effects of electrical equipment.
  • Create a filing and storage system that is clearly labeled and easy to use.


Don'ts:

  • Sit in the line of energy coming in through the door.
  • Hang uninspiring or mismatched artwork.
  • Paint the room in drab colors.
  • Use broken or uncomfortable office chairs.
  • Pile up paperwork or create clutter and disorganization.
  • Sit with your back toward the office door. If you must, hang a mirror to see behind you.
