Remote work from home became popular during the Covid-19 pandemic, but it's staying the new normal for many American workers. Are you among them? Do you plan to join them in the near future? Then one tool that should be on your to-do list is to rent a self-storage unit. Why? Here are a few ways that the right self-storage can boost your work-from-home success.
1. Clear Some Space
Where will you put your remote working office? While some people have an extra bedroom or den they can turn into an office, it's usually already full of other things. And if you don't have a dedicated room? You'll need to make room where you can. Take the overflow items to your storage unit if you may need them in the future.
2. Tidy Up Your Office
Perhaps you have a workspace you've used up until now. But has it become overstuffed, messy, or haphazard? What started out as a temporary pandemic solution may need some sprucing up to become an appropriate permanent workplace.
3. Add Business Storage
Some workers need little more than a desk and computer. Others need to store business equipment, office supplies, documents and files, samples of goods, or tools. Prevent work storage from taking over your home by moving these to an off-site storage facility. It may even be more secure and safer for all, depending on how busy your household is and how many kids or pets are around.
4. Create a Separate Area
The work-from-home model allows you to work in a more convenient place, but being at home isn't always conducive to productivity. Get away from the kids, your family pets, the neighbors' parties, or your spouse's own work-from-home activities by creating a small retreat elsewhere. While you can't do some activities in a storage unit, it's a good backup for light work, spreading out materials, or focused analysis.
5. Get Zoom-Ready
Finally, are you one of the increasing number of employees who must videoconference on a regular basis? From client presentations to staff meetings, how you present yourself on Zoom calls has a serious effect on how your work is perceived and taken seriously. So clean up that videoconference background. Or move your Zoom activity to a storage space you can customize for the impression you want.
