Undoubtedly the first thing you should take into account when starting to organize your workspace is to think very well about the most suitable place in the house.
We recommend that it be a very well lit space, near windows to take advantage of natural light, if this isn’t your case, have a good source of lighting that does not tire your eyes.
It also needs to be a place with few or no distractions, so you can focus on your work and increase your productivity.
Avoid starting to buy everything without having an idea of the exact size and measurements. Many times we make the big mistake of buying something because we thought it was “nice”, but was that really what you needed?
