Right now, with so many people transitioning into video conferencing platforms such as Zoom, Facetime, and Vonage, there has become a novel need for some serious home interior reevaluation. Turning a living room into a temporary office can be a daunting undertaking, especially for those whose relative surroundings will make a debut on the evening news, or into their company’s video conference meeting. The recent government-mandated home quarantines have left many scrambling to set up a temporary work environment within their home. To help solve the need for picturesque living rooms and backdrops during video conference calls, we’ve come up with a few inexpensive upgrades and easy-to-install ideas for anyone working from home
If You’re Prepping For An Online Meeting
Whether you are a teacher ready to instruct your class online, or a team member of a flourishing start-up that requires daily meetings, you’re general surroundings and your visible backdrop that appears on your screen should be carefully considered. To quickly create an inspired video stream, there are a few considerations that you can take before engaging in a call. First off, you’re going to need good lighting. Without question, the first step in creating a compelling online presence is your surrounding lighting. A lot of people are currently making do with their existing lighting fixtures, yet it results in poor visibility, lackluster engagement, and a slightly depressive connotation. You want to achieve an inviting glow that engages your audience, students, or co-workers.
Because we have quickly transitioned into this new reality where our online appearance has become the only form of visual communication, we shouldn’t have to sacrifice our own aesthetic during these “interactive” work experiences. For many, the only human interaction experienced during the day is through phone calls and video conferencing. A great way to bring your lighting game into this current moment is to invest in some inexpensive spotlighting that you can place on your computer desk and illuminate your face with, as frontlet lighting will help your complexion and your visibility tremendously. In addition, ensuring that you have a good flow of natural light throughout your home will create a more pleasant environment and help your viewers see you better. To achieve this, consider replacing your light-obstructing tri-fold walls with glass wall partitions or glass room dividers. Easy to install, beautifully designed, sliding glass room dividers are a quick and painless solution to your make-shift home office needs.
If You Are Your Own Brand or Sell Instruction
Whether you offer trendy online tutorials, motivational speeches, or video instruction of any kind, you’ll want to address your background aesthetic. The overall environment that you present during your Zoom or FaceTime call during your captivative product proposal, your how-to makeup tutorial, or your online class is the most noticed aspect of your online appearance other than yourself. Many who have had to transition their work without a lot of planning are quickly setting up shop in unthoughtful settings and are allowing co-workers, bosses, and potential clients a view into their home life. Create an inviting space for your viewers to enjoy and connect with and you’ll increase your credibility, your engagement, and your views. Considering things like integrating house plants into the visible background, hanging fresh, attention-grabbing art on the walls and carefully considering your surrounding color palette, are all ways you can increase your live-stream or video marketing. Make sure you declutter your surrounding environment and organize your things in order to demonstrate that despite these wild times, you still retain your sense of order, cleanliness, and stability within your home life. Install sliding mirror closet doors to help keep your closets looking fresh, reflect beautiful daytime light throughout your home office, and add an unexpected flourish to your atmosphere.
