Workspaces with Views that Wow!

Posted: 15 May 2013 07:00 AM PDT

The conventional wisdom says that you should do what you love and do it often. If fortunate enough that this is the case professionally, there exists a presumption that taking the odd piece of work home, or indeed, working from home will rarely present as a problem. In order to establish an environment conducive to productivity, one should first consider the optimum position of a home office. In addition to breathtaking views the following workspaces capitalize on natural light, keep window treatments and decorative touches minimal and often incorporate elements of the natural world, such as potted plants and cut flowers. Obviously not everyone can do this but let’s take a look at the lucky few blessed with views like this.

The conventional wisdom also says that a change is as good as a holiday. However, not all professions allow for the mobility depicted in this image of a travel writer's dream. Having said that, one should seek to utilize the versatility of laptops and mobile technology, and apply this principle to spaces within the home. Flexibility in one's approach to working from home and a willingness to stimulate the flow of creative juices by embracing spaces both indoor and outdoor will do much to make the combination of domestic and professional a harmonious one.

Workspaces such as this outdoor setup may not be expensive to create, but they do rely on the grace of the climate in which they exist. A similar energy can be realized by ensuring that the worker's line of sight when sitting is level with a conventionally positioned window and unobstructed by elaborate window treatments and unnecessary decorative items. Functional pieces such as basic office supplies and equipment, one should endeavor to conceal or place at a level lower than that of the line of sight in the interest of maximizing the view and minimizing distractions.

  1. Home Offices and Workspaces

    Its Ted Mcgrath and I've got 2 great plans for you today

    I call these the "Home Offices and Workspaces" series. Take a look at them below:

    1st Project: "Arts & Crafts" Table Lamp Plan

    This is a project for slightly more experienced folks. With its simple lines, this lamp is reminiscent of early 20th-century Prairie-style design...

    2nd Project: Traditional Shelf Plan

    Again, this is one of my older plans but it is still a classic! (and a really popular design too!)

    These shelves have a nice visual interest and best of all, is that this piece is simple and quick to build.

    >> Download both plans here <<

    To remarkable woodworking, Ted Mcgrath

    P.S: I've gotten so many nice notes from people who really enjoyed the all the free plans so far

    Thank you so much for your kind words.
