What does your home office need?

Sometimes I wonder why I bothered to buy a desk and chair.

Sure, they’re great for making sure I maintain proper posture when I’m working away at my laptop.

Sure, they help give me a more professional appearance when I’m on video for a web conference. I’m sitting up straight and I have a nice blank wall behind me.

The trouble is, I don’t always feel at my most creative when I’m at my desk.

As I type away today, I’m on my couch, propped up by a pillow and snuggled under a fleece blanket. It’s how I like to spend my telecommuting days once the maple leaves fall and mercury dips to freezing temperatures.

In the summer, I’m outside on the patio, enjoying the sunshine.

I have to admit I got a little jealous when I clicked on an Apartment Therapy headline that read 15 Beautiful and Inspiring Workspaces.

Some of the home offices are clean and modern, while others have a beautiful vintage feel to them, like this one:

home office telecommuting

Many telecommuters, like my fiancé, need to have a structured place to get their work done … a sanctuary with a door to close, shelves to stock with books and manuals, and office supplies within reach.

Outside of the usual equipment, like the computers, printer/scanner and paper shredder, my fiancé stresses the need for:

✓ A comfortable, ergonomic chair
✓ Lots of natural light
✓ Ample shelving
A coffee mug warmer

I find it difficult to disagree with him. Throw in a white board, a stack of notepads and a cup full of pens and highlighters for me.

Once we get married in 2015, I’ll have a new place to set up an office.

But since we both have very different working styles, rest assured it will be at the other end of the house.

I do know my area will probably be messier. That’s just how creative minds work.
