Bright Ideas for a Productive Home Office

Kids are back at school so time to trade in that beach chair for a comfortable office chair.  Also, time to spruce up your home office and make it a place you want to work in every day.

Creating a lighting scheme that successfully produces an environment that is easy to work in should be top on the list. Bringing as much natural light as you can by setting up your home office space near a wall with windows will make you more productive to handle the tasks of the day.
