Working from home can be difficult for the many distractions that come with it. The most common are chores, and kids if you have them. Now if you are sharing your home office or workspace with another person like your partner, then that’s another challenge to face.
It’s not just about who uses the work desk at what time, but also about your needs and requirements when it comes to your respective workspaces.
So even though you and your partner are sharing a certain area in your house for work, you must assign individual spaces so you can focus and be effective in your respective tasks.
If space is an issue then proper planning and design is the best way to address it. Working from home with another person can be as comfortable, inspiring, and productive as you both want it to be if you plan your space well!
So plan your workspace together and start by answering some of these questions when you are designing your home office:
- How much space in your house can you dedicate to your home office?
- What layout/setup would be most comfortable for both of you? Do you need some sort of divider, or would sharing a large desk be a better idea?
- How much work/desk space would each of you need?
- How much storage and what kind of storage is required?
