HOUSTON – If you’re planning to work from home for the foreseeable future, it may be time to upgrade your current work setup. Lee Crowder, Taylor Morrison Design Gallery and Model Home Branding Manager, shares tips to help improve your home workspace on a budget.
“We don’t want anyone to go buy anything. We want you to use what you have at home,” said Crowder.
Here’s a helpful list to make your home workspace work best for you. For the full interview, watch the video above.
WORKING WITH WHAT YOU HAVE
- Poor posture? Elevate your monitor with books or other stable flat objects to keep you screen at eye level. A keyboard try will also help with arm placement.
- Make your own standing desk by utilizing those stacks of Amazon boxes piling up by your front door. This setup can be used sporadically throughout the day to allow yourself breaks from sitting.
- Don’t splurge on an ergonomic chair. Just place a pillow or rolled towel between your lower back and the back of the chair, then elevate your feet on one of those handy Amazon packages.
