Working from a Home Office

Working from home has become all the rage recently, pretty much because people don’t have much of a choice in the matter. Any office worker who can do their job remotely, basically does it for the simple reason that there is a rogue virus on the loose coming for our lungs. Many people didn’t originally support working from home, citing a lack of collaborative opportunities and lessened team morale, factors which do carry some weight. However, there are plenty of reasons why you should embrace working from home, and to be more specific, to be working from your home office. And we will get into them in this article.

If you want a nice little space to work in with your teammates while sipping on a cold brew coffee, and enjoying a sophisticated aesthetic, go ahead and head over to office to rent Melbourne for some great office spaces that are not only very convenient but also very instagrammable.

Working from your own space makes you a superman of productivity. Seriously, you will be surprised by just how much you can do alone when you don’t have Jeff from accounting talking your ear off about his trip to Italy (Everyone has a Jeff in their office, and if you can’t figure out who the Jeff is in your office, congratulations it’s probably you). In open office plans, the noise levels can go through the roof and depending on your predisposition, you might even be tempted to join in on a conversation or two at the expense of getting your work done. With a home office, you will never have to worry about this. The only conversations you will have are the ones that you choose to have.

It also saves you time and money. It has become a part of normal office life to commute. Yes, the commute. It’s a disgusting word because it equates to wasting a sizable chunk of your life inside a steel shell that may or may not be air conditioned, waiting to get to work. Not only does the commute waste time, but it also wastes fuel and money. When working from home, your commute is basically walking from your bedroom to the home office. No need to sit in a car in traffic, no fuel wasted, it’s the perfect working arrangement and we love it dearly. The only downside is that you don’t have an excuse to get out of the house anymore which makes it kind of hard to get the daily steps in, but hey, no one said the arrangement was perfect.

You can work when it suits you! Gone are the days where you have to deal with an alarm blaring at 6.00 AM so that you can catch the 7.00 AM bus, you decide when you want to wake up, you decide when you want to open your computer. While some prefer to work in the morning and get the work out of the way, some may prefer to start after lunch, and some extremists may prefer to work at night. Working from home makes it possible to work whenever you want.
