Creating My New Workspace Step by Step


Life is all about change, and how we adapt to change while remaining who we really are. Likewise with the architectural aspects of life. We design changes in the various spaces of our lives to suit our lives, and we feel we are living in them.

So this time I will share my experience in the process of creating a new workspace, on the other side of my house. It took me a while to realize that I really needed a new workspace to support my work productivity.



At first glance, it looks like no problem at all. My old workspace is pink with a touch of plants. In the past, it was my mother's former small shop selling necessities for daily living. It is located right on the side of the road. Although on one hand, it is nice to have an open side, there is a view of green fields, but over time I realized my old workspace was too noisy and interfered with my focus.



My old workspace also has a short roof construction, so it makes the room feel very hot during the day. So, this is also an important consideration. Hot and noisy. At least those two things finally made me realize I had to move and create a new workspace.


In fact, it's not easy to realize that we need something new, even though we are already uncomfortable with the old thing. Until finally my partner said I should invest more in my workspace, and I should not be stingy to spend money to buy essential equipment to support my work. Ah, thanks, my partner!

Then I took a break from my day job. I went for a walk with my cat, AL. We both circled my house. Then, I found two spaces as candidates for my new workspace. First, is my sister's former house next to mine. Second, the former bedroom of my late father.

I was thought what if I reused that space for my workspace. So I chose my late father's bedroom to be my workspace.

After deciding on the room selection, then, I went to the furniture store to look for a work desk and chair.


I haven't upgraded my desk and chairs in a long time. Since becoming a freelancer after resigning from the company a few years ago, I've been using the old desk that I used when I was in high school.

So it's a good time to buy new furniture for my new workspace. I have been to several furniture stores in my city. I ended up buying a work desk and chair at the furniture store where I used to buy a hanging chair.

I went back to the store and I knew I would find the right one.



My favorite place to shop for furniture is called “KAWANKU”. In English, it means “My Friend” and can be interpreted as a friendly furniture shop.



An employee who served me did not allow me to take too many pictures.


So I just took some photos in this place. Of course, posing a selfie on the furniture that has a mirror is a great idea. Lol.


This shop has a fairly complete collection of furniture. This includes work desks and chairs.


The following are the types of a desk and a chair that I chose to fill my new workspace.




I spent around $178 or IDR 2,400,000.


Well, after the desk and chair were delivered to my house from the furniture store, I set up my new workspace. So far I like the new vibes.


It takes a lot more to beautify my workspace. Like repainting walls and changing window curtains. I have to be patient to raise money for it all. At least for now, it can work well to increase my productivity.


AL looking around at my new workspace.


I have been using this workspace for a week. It feels comfortable, especially with the new soft chair that can be turned around to reduce my boredom.

It's still beyond perfect compared to how my old workspace looks. But I'm quite satisfied I was able to make a nice change.




That was the story about my experience creating a new workspace step by step. What do you think about my new workspace? I would love to read your comments.

Thank you for reading my blog and reblog if you want my blog this time worthy of reading by others.

It seems unbelievable but the place we have to work influences a lot, if we don't feel at ease we don't make progress or we get distracted, I need a quiet place without so much outside noise.
Your space looks very well balanced.

Nice work, simple and beautiful!
I like my workspace to be simple but beautiful too. It doesn't take much to get the right atmosphere if you know what you want. I have loads of plants around me, this makes my workspace comfortable for me.
I don't mind sitting here for hours while I work.

The important thing is green space :)

@anggreklestari very nice decoration.I like it very much.👌👌

Its important to have a relaxing workplace

Ini sesuatu yang luar biasa kak. Karena ruangannya sangat sederhana, tapi terlihat bagus dengan bunga anggrek di atas meja. Jika nanti ada kesempatan baik, kakak @anggreklestari bisa memberi sentuhan warna orange di dinding ruangan.

Best regards.

If I have not read this blog, I was thought that those desk was your late father's stuff. I just saw the chair was new one but I get mistake. Why did you chosen that kind of desk? I think it would be cute if you choose the minimalist one I mean something with white. But that was my style haha. It still looks nice. I bet you will get biggies ideas when you work on it!

Well, I want the white one. But not available in here. so I just change my expectation :(

Why didn't go to onlineshop?

I love the creative thinking that brings out the best and this really teach that one should not despise his little beginning state.
Thanks for sharing

When we make our art a practice, when we make our workspace sacred and enter it daily with respect and high intention, then we elevate our actions (even if they're taking place within the profane arena of commerce) beyond ego and above gimme-gimme ambition.

Bringing in new furniture is always fun and when it's for workstation it's super exciting and creates new found excitement to work.
Keep flourishing and sharing your experiences.

I like what it seems to be an essential oil diffuser? I wonder if they really maintain the nice smell, I often wanted one of those. To have silence and a good energy where you work is important, as it can reduce stress and fatigue.
The plant in the left looks like an Anthurium, I love those

Is a space work nice. Haha the cat go too?

Well done @anggreklestari! We're happy to inform you that this publication was specially curated and awarded RUNNER-UP in Architecture Brew #29. Congratulations!
