Recently, I’ve been daydreaming about my DREAM workspace. Since I go to school from home for my Distance Dietetics Program, I’m at home all the time…but I’m also constantly working. Whether it’s for the blog, my dietetics program, or one of the other jobs I have on the side, I am in my home work space a LOT.
Last year, I detailed how I created a healthy work space at home, because although I have been DREAMING of making changes I understand that Brian and I living in an apartment is temporary and I’ve made the space work for me right now. That being said, I know that some day I will have a larger kitchen (my kitchen is SO small!) and a standing desk (hey a girl can dream!).
Here are the aspects of my office I have been dreaming of 🙂
I honestly feel like I could stand all day sometimes, but instead I have to sit at my desk to get my work done. The thought of a standing or a treadmill desk is honestly a frequent topic of conversation among Brian and I, and one day I came home to this…
While the thought was very sweet, that is just not what I had in mind for a standing desk. In my mind, the table portion of the desk large enough for me to set my books, notebooks, and/or planner on while I type away on the computer.
Here are some great standing/treadmill desks:
The Treadmill Desk: This standing desk has a tutorial for how to build your own
Brittany from Eating Bird Food has a standing desk that goes up and down, so you can sit if you want!
I drink SO much water and love when it is cold. My in-laws have a water cooler in their kitchen and I am seriously obsessed with it. I know I would use it all the time, and can’t wait for the day when I can have one in my home office
Julie from Peanut Butter Fingers posted about her home office last year and I have been in love with it since the moment I laid eyes on it! I love that the colors are bright, but not distracting. The sense of openness and organization really lends the space to appear relaxing and inspiring. I love it!
Yep! I have one in my home office now, and I really LOVE it. I love that I can update it all the time and it’s really easy to wipe clean.
I really love clean and tidy spaces and I love when everyTHING has a home. Even though I get my books and study supplies out each day, everything has a place and I make sure to put it all away so that my office space is inviting when I come in. If there are a lot of things laying out and about, it honestly causes me stress (crazy, I know!) so having lots of storage that keeps things hidden is a NEED in my dream work space.
While my laptop works great, a desktop computer would allow me to set my office to be more ergonomically friendly and desktop computers can have a lot more storage. This is definitely a dream that won’t come true for a while 😉
HA! Kind of a goofy last item on my “wish list” but, as I mentioned this is my DREAM work space so I’m including it all 🙂
Here are some resources for really pretty office essentials:
Something that I just recently learned about that really sparked my interest are Coworking Office Spaces. Have you guys heard of these type of office spaces?
Nicole at Pumps and Iron did a great review on Breather a while back, and that was where I was first introduced to the idea of renting a cozy office/room based on the hour. Honestly, I love the idea and I would take advantage of that for a little work/study time out of the house, but I don’t think we have any options available in Denver quite yet. I JUST heard that Wework will be opening up a coworking office space in Denver soon, but I’m not sure when.
Until then, I’ll continue to day dream about my dream work space 🙂
