Across the country, employees are adapting to the work-from-home lifestyle. Most are adjusting to new work schedules and virtual meetings; meanwhile, working parents are finding ways to balance child care with job responsibilities. Some workers might even begin to prefer these conditions, but it’s hard not to miss some aspects of going into an office—namely, the physical perks of your company’s workspace. 

When working from home, most employees must go without the typical furnishings of a physical office, like extra computer monitors, lamps, snack bars and ergonomic chairs. In fact, some might not even have a desk or a quiet space to work from at all. As nationwide social distancing continues, some workers are getting creative and redesigning their homes or apartments to work as offices, too.
