With more and more people making the decision to work from home, many have chosen to have garden offices built. A high quality, spacious garden office speaks of your professionalism and of the high value services your business offers. But once you have a garden office professionally designed and built, what’s the next step to creating the ultimate efficient home office?
To create your home office, you will need some important essentials. From a computer and network system, to your desk, furniture and more, your garden office will need some basics before you get started.
Office Essentials To Set Up An Efficient Home Office
Computer- your home computer or laptop might not be powerful enough to run a business with. Invest in a computer that has a combination of speed, power, and storage so that it can grow with you as your business grows.
High-Speed Internet Access- a broadband connection is essential if you’re going to work efficiently online from home. With faster upload and download speeds, High-Speed Internet Access is a must have in any modern garden office.
Desk- if you are going to be meeting clients in your garden office, you are going to want a desk that is big enough to accommodate meetings and consultations. Make sure that it has the storage you need as well as built in electronics for your computer and accessories.
Chair- one of the most important components of any office, is a comfortable, ergonomically friendly chair. Choose one that fits your office and that has the features you want.
Telephone Or VoIP- running a small business with your smartphone is possible, but it’s not professional. Choose a dedicated landline or VoIP technology, internet-based phone service.
Software- small business owners need access to word processing, spreadsheets, and email management applications. Choose the software that suits your business needs and consider new SaaS applications to save money.
Printer- a printer can be an invaluable tool in any office. From printing, copying, and faxing, to downloading online tools and images, today’s multi-function printers do it all.
Backup Drive Or Personal Server- either a backup drive or a personal sever will ensure that your important business documents are saved, secure, and accessible when you need them.
Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)- there are times when the power might go out and if you don’t have an uninterruptable power supply, you could lose hours of work or an important document. A UPS provides backup power for a limited time in case your electricity goes out and it can give you some buffer time to save your work and safely shut down your equipment.
