Working From Home? Create the Ultimate Home Office!
Sometimes, in this new and unusual time we all find ourselves in, we have to find ways to adapt to our environment and circumstances in creative ways! One new environment we are all looking to try and navigate differently is the workplace. Many of us are getting into all new territory trying to balance the work-from-home life with our normal lives. Working from home can seem like a break from the norm. However, adding kids, pets, home-life distractions, and other variables into the mix doesn’t always make for the most productive workday. Here are some ways to turn your space into the ultimate home office and maximize productivity!
First and foremost, establish the “home office space”. You may not have an entire extra room you can dedicate to this purpose, so pick a corner or area in your space that feels like it can be just yours. This could be your reading nook, a corner of your living room that isn’t currently being used, or a space in your kitchen that feels inspiring. One of the best parts of not being confined to your normal office is that you can get creative and really make it your own!
Try adding some entertainment for your eyes! During the workday, it’s easy to get distracted while working at home. Instead of immediately jumping onto Facebook or TikTok to get a mental break, try adding some inspiring or sentimental artwork where your eyes drift away from your computer screen! This will be a nice mental break with your thoughts instead of the social media rabbit hole.
If you have kids or pets distracting you, try playing games that get them out of your hair for a few minutes at a time! For instance, dogs love looking for things. Give your dog some mental stimulation - and yourself a break - by hiding a handful of their food around your place. Let them go find it while you squeeze in some productive time and repeat! If you have a toddler around that is also needing something to do, play a sorting game! Tell them to find everything in your space that is a certain shape or color and bring it to you. Toddlers are EXPERT sorters. Once they bring it all back, thank and congratulate them before asking them to put it all back! This will take them a little more time than finding it did, and it will give you a few minutes. This is a great hack if you need to sort some laundry as well ;)
Lastly, make your area feel FUN. Do you work well while listening to music? Gone are the days of putting in your headphones at your desk! Feel free to bring out a speaker or play something out loud. Do you feel most productive after small breaks? Bring your hand weights over and get some reps in between emails! Might as well get some physical exercise in as well.
Any space can be made into the ultimate home office because it is meant to be YOUR ultimate home office!
Have you ever had a dream of living in a big city, but in a renovated historic apartment, across from a bowling alley/bar, above one of Cleveland’s most well-known destinations, all within walking distance of amazing food, fun, and possibly your office? Look no further than the Windsor Building on East 4th Street!
This building checks every box above and then some. An urban vibe in a historic building lends a lot of character to the building itself while the location is unbeatable. Indoor parking is just one of the awesome perks that come with living in this dream apartment community. You never have to worry about water bills as they are included with the rent, as is trash removal. Your heat is all electric and will be the only bill you have to worry about ! Depending on what size apartment you need, anything from a one bedrooms up to a multi-level with private rooftop patios decks can be found in this unique building.
Some of our renovated apartments will also feature beautiful new cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, in-unit washers and dryers, and a few other great upgrades! You also get gated/controlled access to the underground parking garage, , high ceilings, and the amazing location. Imagine walking across the street to the Corner Alley for some dinner, drinks, and bowling with friends only to have your “walk home” be a few feet. Think about working in the heart of the city and not having to worry about city parking because your car is safely parked back at your apartment just a block or two away. Retail therapy can be found below your apartment and just a short walk down the alley to CLE Clothing Co. The Windsor Building is in the heart of everything you need in Cleveland.
Renovated historic buildings, like this one, have so much to offer in terms of location, living style, and community. A community benefits whenever a building like this is renovated and used for something beneficial rather than torn down. Cleveland’s character and past can be felt throughout the walls, while every resident can know that they are living in a building that is part of preservation rather than more expansion.
East 4th Street will always be ready for anything. The Windsor Building is ready for you.
