Beautiful Weather Means You Should Create an Outdoor Office

One of the biggest advantages of living in the San Diego area is our weather. We enjoy very temperate conditions year round in southern California, which make it the perfect location to enjoy outdoor activities every month. As spring approaches, we are looking forward to some of the best temperatures of the year. Why not really celebrate this gorgeous place we live by setting up an outdoor office? Here are our tips for doing just that.

Add Some Shade

Although the sun’s rays feel warm and welcoming once the morning fog has lifted, it doesn’t take long for bright sunshine to prohibit getting any work done outdoors. Luckily, you have plenty of options to add shade features for an outdoor office in any area of your backyard oasis.

There are cantilever shade umbrellas specifically made to cover up to four zones at once. Smaller market umbrellas are perfect for covering smaller work spaces, and they are easy to move if you wish to change up your environment a bit.

A patio table with a center hole for adding an umbrella is a popular solution and always provides a good place for setting up your laptop and other office equipment. We recommend opting for vented umbrella fabric covers which allow the wind to freely sail through.

Outdoor Table and Chair

Although a patio table is one option for setting up your outdoor workstation, it doesn’t always fit your ergonomic needs. Take a cue from your indoor desk and office chair. Measure their heights and find an outdoor version that is similar. A table of adjustable height is perfect since you can use it with a variety of different seats. A bar height table might work well since it offers a place to support your feet.

Just be sure that the chair you select offers proper back support and the seat isn’t so wide that you are straining to reach your keyboard on the table. You may want to try adding a lumbar pillow to the chair so that your body is placed in the right position.

An outdoor console might be a welcome addition to your outdoor office, as well. These pieces offer a great place to keep your computer accessories and paperwork out of the weather.

Other Outdoor Office Accessories

Of course, you will want to ensure that you always have proper lighting for your outdoor office. An outdoor lamp, which is specifically designed to hold up well in response to weather conditions such as sun and wind, is a handy accessory to place on your outdoor office desk.

Another helpful accessory is a portable outdoor gas heater. This is especially useful if you want to work outdoors on a chilly, cloudy day or after the sun goes down. Place the heater next to your outdoor office setup and you will be sure to stay toasty warm.

Finally, if you are planning on hosting clients in your outdoor office, consider adding a sectional sofa where your clients can relax in comfort. Add a splash of color with brightly hued outdoor pillows.
