How to Set Up a Home Office | Electrician | Gold Coast | Sparkies Electrica

When it comes to setting up your home office it can give you some flexibility that you don’t get in a conventional office, firstly you don’t have to commute to work and pyjamas are deemed suitable home office attire. With its many perks also come a few challenges, it’s important to take into consideration the potential distractions, the limited space and to work out how to separate your personal life from your business life.

At Sparkies Electrical on the Gold Coast we’ve provided some handy hints and tips on setting up your own home office.

  • Setting up a separate business phone can help you separate your home life from your work life. This means that when business hours are over you can simply divert the calls to voicemail without missing any of your personal calls. Plus, answering your personal phones after one too many wines might only embarrass you amongst friends and not professionally.
  • Ergonomics are important, even at home. Slumping on the sofa with a laptop will only lead to neck and back pains. Invest in a good desk and chair that allow you to sit with your feet flat on the floor and inline with your hips.
  • When setting up a home office, try and set some boundaries. By keeping strict office hours you will be able to stop your business life consuming your personal life.
  • Consider a standing desk if you don’t want to remain sedimentary. Standing stations are a great way to stop those aches and pains associated with sitting in an office chair all day, and an adjustable one that allows you to sit as well means you get the best of both worlds.
  • Get you phone lines and data cabling installed by a qualified electrician to support your information and communication needs. Ensure your technological set-up can deal with a fully functioning office. If you’re internet is slow, or your electricals system can’t handle all the extra power being used, then you risk being inefficient and wasting time.
