There are a great many of us who are choosing to work from home these days; the economy, the price of gas, and the corporate world’s desire to keep their overhead down, have all combined to allow us the perfect timing for opening our laptops and getting to work – without having to leave our homes to do it.
Of course part of the challenge inherent in a work from home situation is defining our own boundaries both physically and mentally. In most cases, by defining a physical space where we are to complete our work, the mental boundaries follow; we are able to eventually transition from home to work and back again simply by where we are located in our home. For most people, this division means the creation of a home office – a place that is both comfortable and effective for getting work done. The work part is normally quite simple – armed with a desk, a computer, some filing cabinets, and a phone system, we are generally able to tackle what lies ahead.
But in terms of making it a comfortable space as well, we are often stuck. The challenge, of course, is that a home office is an extension of the home’s décor and so anything that we choose to include in the office must be within the lines of the overall home design. Grandfather clocks are quite appropriate in such a space because their design can be chosen to go along with the rest of the home, without taking over the design of the home office.
Further, because grandfather clocks are so sophisticated, they make for the perfect accompaniment in any type of office setting; and their height allows them to be a focal point in the room without taking up much floor space.
Grandfather clocks provide a home office with the comfort, elegance, and sophistication most work from home employees or business owners seek.
