While it’s logical to want to be comfortable at home, experts advise against too much informality in your home office space. The goal is to create a space that is designed specifically for getting work done. When you come into your office, you’re brain should automatically slip into work mode
If a space is too casual you’ll be more distracted and likely to be interrupted. Family members should think of the office space as a physical boundary that is off limits to other home activities. This can be challenging if you’re removing a bed for workspace. In this case, you’re going to want a Computer Desk for Bed or Computer Desk Bed.
To plan for productivity, considerthe type of work that you’ll be doing, how much space you’ll need, and what kinds of physical space you’ll need for working and storage.

The answers to these questions will help you start to create an office plan.
Good lighting is a very important to productivity. If your office has a window, orient your desk perpendicular to it. You’ll be tempted to face your desk so that you’re looking outside, but remember that your goal is to get work done, not be distracted. If you want complete focus, perhaps a Hidden Desk Bed is your best option.
