4 Ways to Maintain Productivity in the Home Office

by TrueNorth Desks

More and more Americans are making the switch to remote working and home offices. A flexible schedule and work setting can greatly improve employees’ overall satisfaction, productivity, and performance. If you are able to work from home, it’s important to still find ways to establish structure within your routine. Having a home office can inadvertently become a nuisance when proper boundaries aren’t in place. Household chores, needy children, and entertainment comforts can become a distraction if they aren’t headed off on the front end. At TrueNorth, we have designed a line of standing desks that can work in a traditional office environment, or in your home office space. Here are 4 ways to maintain productivity in the home office:

Closed Doors

When working in your office, close the doors on other household distractions. An established space that is devoted to work is a necessary part of maintaining focus while working from home. Don’t think you can just work from the couch or your bed all day. It won’t work! Devote a spare room, closet, or section of the house for your office, and set up your sit to stand desk and other necessary office supplies.

Set Hours

Working from home means that you don’t always have to maintain a strict 9 to 5 schedule. However, there should be some continuity and planning that goes into your week. If you need to run a few errands during the day, schedule them together and take those hours “off” from the office. When you are working at your standing desk in your home office, you’ll know that you’re devoted to the tasks at hand, trusting that the other errands and chores will be taken care of when your schedule allows.

Ergonomic Office Furniture

At TrueNorth, we have built a line of motorized standing desks that can be programmed to transition between sitting and standing heights. Ergonomic office furniture reduces risks of cardiovascular disease and obesity, and users report less lower back and neck pain. Investing in a TrueNorth standing desk for your home office works to improve overall health, and therefore increases focus and productivity during the workweek.


Your home office doesn’t deserve to be an afterthought. Spruce up your space and allow it to reflect your tastes and values. Apply a fresh coat of paint in the room, invest in some quality curtains, and use ergonomic office furniture that contributes to your overall satisfaction. TrueNorth’s adjustable height desks are sleek and durable. Each desk can maneuver between sitting and standing heights while holding up to 300 pounds on the desktop, and our design options include corner desks, multi-tiered desks, and large and small models. You can most definitely find one that fits your style and space.
