It is the Digital Age, a time where telecommuting is more and more popular.
Worklife balance is so necessary in this day and age. So what is needed to make sure yours or your spouse's work from home experience is a good one? There are some things to think about when considering this as an option.
Strong internet connection. This is an absolute must have. The computer, iPad, wifi world we live in is so crucial to any work situation. It has to be on point. Of course I then have to be concerned about the esthetic of it all. Wires and cords and design can co-exist. All you have to do is be a little creative. The Image above is a very stylish way to keep your cords inline.
Closet. If you don't have an office. A closet will often do the trick. The bigger the better obviously , but a nook of a space will work just great with careful planning and furniture. You can easily take off the doors and open up a closet or pantry space in the kitchen. It lacks the quiet and retreat of an office, but its your only option headphones should be a big help.
Light. It seems like it is a no-brainer , but the right light is essential for a good work space. Natural light is always the best option, but if that is not available a lamp that delivers light to your workspace can give you what you need. A Chandelier no matter how beautiful will not provide the type of light needed for working. You will need task lighting located directly at your desk.
Privacy. Privacy to the extent that you can get it will really help you focus. Because you are at home, focusing will be difficult if you are surrounded by distractions. After all if you can't focus on work while you are working from home , the boss will not be too pleased. And we just can't have that!!!
Last but not least is an inspirational space to do what you do. Even if it turns out to be the closet, make it the best darn closet in the whole house. Visual Diary Time!!!! Please see this visual diary of beautifully inspired work spaces.
Can't Believe 2018 is already here 1 day down 364 to go to 2019. What are your plans goals dreams for 2018? Decisions , decisions..
Well , this is usually the time that resolutions are made, goals are set, and calendars are marked.
Its a National reset button day if you will. Personally , I have committed to be more resolute in my faith, with my family, and all things design. I have so many things planned for this year. Very excited to share over the next 12 months. A big goal is to help as many of you as possible have New Homes and a New point of view.
Your home is a reflection of you and believe it or not can play a very interesting role in how you tackle your days , months, and years.
Our Team at LACD wants to design a home for you that functions beautifully and delivers the ease and usability we all rely on to make the mundane , more doable. We believe your home should be a place to relax and recharge batteries. If you are a current client of ours you already know it is not good enough for things to be "Pretty". We are working on more than just looks here. It has to work for you in a multitude of ways. Some in which, you never knew you needed , but somehow can no longer live without. Thats where the point of view comes in. Stuff is just stuff until you use it to get more time out of the day to get to the important things and people that really matter.
Its a new year , time to plan and make some major changes. Time to renovate for function, time to upgrade to maximize your time.
Tell us about your 2018 projects. We look forward to working with you.
