With the rise of remote work in recent years, more people are looking to shift to a comfortable home office where they can be productive without having to travel. But what’s the ideal living environment for a home office? Do you just want a bright and spacious room for your desk, or would you like the option to work outdoors on a nice day?
There are a variety of factors to consider, but here at Rivers Ledge Apartments in Niskayuna, NY, our luxury apartment community offers many benefits for remote workers.
Create a Home Office That Meets Your Needs
Rivers Ledge features a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments, both of which have spacious indoor living rooms where you can set up a home office. Depending on your needs, you can customize the space to include a full-size computer desk, an adjustable standing desk, or even a portable desk for the couch.
Another option to think about is using your bedroom or the second bedroom in a two-bedroom apartment as your office. If you have enough space to add a desk there, then you can keep your living room for relaxing and entertaining guests.
When you come to tour our luxury apartments, be sure to walk around and picture how your remote workspace should look.
Enjoy Working in an Outdoor Living Space
We all love the great outdoors, and one of the advantages of having an outdoor living space, such as a balcony, patio, deck, or porch, is the flexibility it brings to the work day at home. Imagine it’s a warm, sunny day and you’ve spent hours at the desk already. If you have an outdoor living space, then you can switch to your laptop, go breathe in some fresh air, and enjoy a healthy dose of sunshine.
Working outdoors has been shown to help improve productivity and energy levels, as well as your overall mood. As such, you can’t go wrong with renting any of our apartment units, as they all have either a private balcony or patio.
Make the Most of Your Lunch Break at Home
Lunch breaks aren’t just for eating anymore. While working from home, you can spread out your meals and grab some food from the kitchen at your leisure. That means you’ll have extra time during your break to read a book, watch a little TV, or even head out for an invigorating walk.
Residents at Rivers Ledge have direct access to one of the area’s most popular walking trails, the Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail. This trail is a paved, multi-use path that stretches between Albany County and Schenectady County, and part of it runs adjacent to our apartment community. Stay active during the work day and go for a short walk or bike ride.
In addition, you’ll be able to access the nearby Aqueduct Park too, which features some picnic tables by the river. Bring your lunch with you during your mid-day break and soak up the views.
Bonus: If you have a dog at your pet-friendly apartment, the Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail is perfect for an afternoon stroll with your furry friend.
Multitask & Complete Household Chores
Another great benefit of working remotely is the opportunity to keep up with quick household chores. Instead of water cooler talk, you can stand up for a bit to stretch your legs, do a load of laundry, or load/unload the dishwasher.
Not only that, but since you don’t have to drive back home at the end of the day, you can get dinner cooking in the oven, finish up your work, and then enjoy your meal right on time.
Each apartment at Rivers Ledge comes with a variety of amenities, including a modern kitchen and an in-unit washer and dryer, which makes it easy to multitask. Plus, by checking off a few chores, you’ll end up having a healthier work-life balance.
