Today, more than ever, many of us are working from home. Studies have shown that working from home improves productivity, reduces unscheduled absences and improves employee satisfaction.
Is your commute less than 15 seconds? Here are a few tips that might help:
- Set aside a place specifically for work. You’ll be able to deduct it from your taxes and help you mentally by keeping work separate from your home life.
- Create a daily work schedule. Defining specific work hours will set limits on your phone calls and emails cutting into your personal time.
- Make a point to build workplace relationships. With those you work with and business connections. Working from home doesn’t mean you always have to stay at home.
- Network electronically. Get active in LinkedIn groups that relate to your work, employer, alma mater, past employers, or other interests that you follow.
So going back to the first point, why not make your home office a thing of beauty? Make your work space easy to work in, have the tools you need to make working more efficient. Make your space a place you ENJOY working in. A new desk, a comfortable chair, files to keep organized. And don’t forget your office window! Roman shades or draperies can really add a lot to your work space. Make your space, yours, make it inviting, make it beautiful!
See something you’d like us to duplicate? We can do it. Our seamstresses have an average of 25 years of experience making custom window treatments. There’s probably nothing they haven’t seen or made. You can forward your ideas and pictures to us and we will let you know whether or not we can duplicate the design.
Want to add a trim or banding? We can do that too. For a unique, one of a kind look, let us help you design your dream drapes. Contact us for more information and ideas.
