2 Tips to Revamp Your Work-From-Home Office Space

News / January 4, 2021

Working From Home Office Space

While Australia has done a terrific job in reducing the spread of COVID-19, there’s still an overwhelming amount of professionals and businesses who have been forced to set up shop within their own homes and adopt a remote work set-up.

Thanks to the advent of technology, it has become easier to make the switch from office settings to makeshift home workstations. In fact, millions of Australians are currently behind their computers and taking on different tasks and convening with their co-workers through video calls.

You’ve most likely become well-acquainted with a routine of waking up, showering, and starting work without leaving the house. You may not realise it right now, but you’ve helped keep your company afloat and contributed your share to reviving the Australian economy right from the comfort of your home.

As the weeks go by, there’s likely to be one key realisation that is bound to bother you sooner or later: Your work-from-home (WFH) set-up is becoming more uninspiring and is making it harder for you to be productive.

Tips for a more inspiring, refreshing, and productive WFH set-up

Generally, WFH set-ups differ for everyone. Some may be stationed on dining tables, some may be in private rooms or studies dedicated to working, while others might be in the middle of the living room.

Unless you’ve been working at home for a while now (which means pre-pandemic), the chances are that you don’t have a space at home that’s dedicated for working. Much like the economy, you were probably caught off-guard by sudden lockdowns and the switch to a remote set-up to the point where you haven’t been able to realise just how lacking your set-up is.

If you don’t want your WFH set-up to be so drab or life-sucking, these simple yet effective tips can help you quickly turn things around so that you feel more productive in no time:

Tip #1: Move everything to an open space

If you have a room that is being used for only storage (such as a guest bedroom, attic, or basement), then you have the perfect canvas for your new and transformed WFH office.

With all the money that you’ve saved up from not going out for the longest time, you can start getting to work on what’s going to be your new office by repainting the walls and refurbishing some spots for a new look. However, you won’t need to worry about the transformation costs once normal life resumes. Remote work has been touted to become the future of Australian workplaces.

Tip #2: Invest in some great furniture

At this point, the chances are that you’ve probably spent the majority of your workdays hunched over an awkward dining chair for hours on end – the “non-ergonomic, unproductive, and spontaneous” WFH arrangement.

Considering that you’re probably dedicating lots of time to bringing back inspiration in your working life with a renewed work set-up, now is also the time to get some new furniture installed. For instance, investing in Aurora Office Furniture’s comfortable and functional pieces for your home office will get you right into a productive mindset and make you feel like you’re not just working in a spare room!


As COVID-19 continues to impact the way Australian businesses usually operate, it’s clear that there’s no better time to revamp your home workspace than today. With the help of the two tips mentioned above, you can help prepare yourself and your home for a future of remote working in no time.
