Unlike when you’re in the office where everybody is else is busy as you are, working from home can lead you to a lot of distractions. For starters, there is your bed summoning to take some quick rest, your gaming consoles calling you for a quick skirmish, and your quarantine snacks that are encouraging you to take multiple nibbles. While you are not under physical supervision during your work from home, being under office hours still require you to get your job done everyday. And to prevent yourself from these productivity killers, you might want to rearrange your work space at home to invigorate some good energy and let you focus on your workload.

Let’s not kid ourselves, plopping your laptop at any given corner or surface at home doesn’t always get the job done. Sometimes you just sit there and nothing happens. Whether we like to admit it or not, the placebo effect of a conducive workspace does wonders on one’s efficiency and productivity when it comes to ticking off your daily to-do list. So, to make things better, we suggest moving things around and vibing what fits best for your mood.

If you want to repurpose a corner at home, take your decorating ideas to the next level with these local and foreign interior designers.
