With more and more small business owners and professionals working from home, it’s more important than ever to have a great home office.
If you want your home office space to be an environment that really nurtures creativity and productivity, you might be able to learn a thing or two from those who have already had a lot of success while working from home.
You might not have realized that many celebrities work out of their homes. But there are actually some big names who have made a habit out of working out of their home offices on a fairly regular basis.
Some of those celebrities, including Ellen Degeneres, Arianna Huffington, Neil Gaiman and Martha Stewart, are featured in an infographic about home offices from Pottery Barn. The graphic also includes some helpful insights from those celebrities about setting up home offices and getting as much done as possible when working from home.
Celeb Home Office Organization Tips
For example, the graphic states that Degeneres’s office is mainly centered around a large desk. So when creating your own office space, you need to choose a desk that will work for you and support good posture throughout the workday so you can stay comfortable and focused on the task at hand.
Meanwhile, Huffington describes herself as a “sleep advocate.” So the graphic states that taking regular naps or breaks can work wonders for productivity when working from home. In fact, a 40-minute nap can reportedly increase alertness by 34 percent.
For Gaiman’s part, it’s all about creating a retreat that supports creativity as part of your home office space. The graphic also mentions the importance of deadlines and creating some kind of reward system to ensure that your creative work actually stays on track.
And it should come as no surprise that Stewart’s office is all about organization. So if you want to channel some of her success, you can set up a sorting system for the items in your home office and declutter regularly. The graphic even states that decluttering your home office and desk can save you between 15 and 20 percent of your annual costs because it allows you to exercise clearer, sharper decision making.
Those are just some of the tips and insights you can gain from the infographic, titled “Be Inspired by the Home Offices of the Stars.” You can view the infographic in its entirety below.
