Bang & Olufsen - Home office


Home office

Working from home has gone from an occasional occurrence to an everyday expectation. Embrace the potential for flexibility and reduce challenges by creating a home office space that supports and motivates you.

Home office ideas

So much of our home life is now digital that it can be tempting to keep your workspace fluid. This has its advantages, especially if you're a fan of a change of scenery, but for extended work from home, there's a lot to be said for setting up a permanent workstation.

Creating a designated work space is also an important cue for your family, allowing them to separate your social time from your work time. Ideally you have a separate room that can turn into a designated home office, if not then you can find ways to mark off your work area.

If you need to work in the living room or at the kitchen table, try installing a workstation that can be easily taken apart and set up again. Even simple visual cues like colorful mats under your laptop, a fold-out screen, or a set of wheeled shelves for files or equipment can create that essential separation between work time and play time.

Accessories and essential elements for working from home

Experiment and invest in some smart choices to enhance the comfort of your home workspace.

Try a tall or adjustable desk: With fewer trips to the staff kitchen or boardrooms, reduce your chances of becoming sedentary with a desk that allows you to stand.

Invest in a good chair: You'll be spending a lot of time sitting in front of your laptop, and decent back support is absolutely essential.

Decorate your space: Help create a calming air and a separation from home life by including something to rest your eyes, such as a painting or a plant.

Use your speakers: For freedom of movement without headphones, pair the portable speaker with your phone to answer calls and participate in meetings.


How to work from home when you have kids

It can be more difficult for children to understand the difference between work and play, especially when normal routines have been disrupted.

If they're old enough, try to work out a schedule that helps them understand when you can have fun with them and when you have to work.

Use portable speakers with voice assistant functionality to set alarms or reminders that your kids can listen to, such as a favorite song playing when it's time to turn off work emails and join in from new to the family.

When your little ones are enjoying playtime and you need to be able to focus, try headphones with active noise cancellation that will help you eliminate distractions. Or, if you enjoy a soundtrack while you work but need to hear children, transparency mode can be very useful.

How to improve your mood when working from home

Quality work happens in environments that support creative processes. Create a space that will help you focus and work well with your mood in mind.

Good lighting can make a big difference. If your work area doesn't get a lot of natural light, consider adding a lamp that mimics sunlight to get some of those good rays.

Candles or essential oils can also be very helpful not only to help combat stress, but also to prepare your mind and body to go into "work mode" when you can't move to another physical space .

Try to minimize wires and look for simple ways to charge your various devices. The annoyance of a dead battery or tangled cables can ruin your stream. Smart docking and wireless charging boards can help you keep your space free.

Bang & Olufsen inspiration for your home office

Enhance your home workstation with speakers that do more than just background music. Pair Bluetooth-enabled speakers with mobile devices or laptops for excellent call clarity during meetings, or choose models with built-in voice assistants for some quick help.

Improve your concentration level even if you're installed in your living room with a range of headphones that are comfortable enough to be worn for long periods of time. Look for useful features like powerful ANC to neutralize background noise and intuitive touch controls for easily taking calls or changing the volume.

Best of all, when the work day is done, your speakers and headphones can switch to the perfect way to relax, play and enjoy all the comforts of home.
