Office Wednesday, July 12th 2017.
Store things the way you store things. One of the more glorious parts of working in a home office is that there’s no company-issued metal filing cabinet plopped in your workspace. However, you’ll still need a place to store important papers. Look for chic-but-practical storage solutions. Magazine racks are good for those who like to keep their documents vertical. If you’re a paper stacker like me, a simple bin keeps piles looking somewhat organized and intentional.
Workplaces are on the move—literally. We have seen the trend tiptoeing into our daily office life for some time now, but it seems 2015 may be the year of the complete office overhaul. The original open office concept was conceived in the 1950’s by a team in Hamburg, Germany—they thought it would facilitate communication. With almost 70% of all offices embracing this open floor plan, we assume it’s working, but is it really? Some results are showing otherwise. There are so many open office concepts that employers are now embracing—some more interesting and creative than others.
Embrace natural light. Human beings are programmed to feel happier (and hopefully see increased productivity) when exposed to natural light. Take whatever window space you have and emphasize it with the layout of your home office. If space permits, break the cubicle-standards and float your desk away from a wall, parallel to the window. You’ll be positioned to enjoy the view without having to deal with glare.
The Ellipzes story began in Romania ( a small country in Europe ) back in 2017 when founder and CEO Maurella Lamore launched a blog that would go on to become one of the most popular and successful online magazines to date focusing on interior design and architecture. Currently clocking up an impressive 3.8+ million unique monthly visitors, the site provides daily inspiration and advice to those who are seeking to improve, organise and style their homes. With an archive of 7000+ posts featuring over 90,000+ images of great interior products and architectural projects it is no wonder that Ellipzes has one of the most engaged online communities on the net.
