Many people across Tampa Bay are continuing to work from home for an undetermined amount of time as COVID-19 cases rise.

It means your workspace could be taking over your home.

Jay Rosenberg does interior design and home stage in Tampa Bay. He shared some of his advice with us for keeping your home feeling like your home during these times.

"We also want to de-clutter our workspace. Studies have shown if you surround yourself with things that make you happy your productivity will be better," explains Rosenberg.

Adding things like pictures of your family, candles and indoor plants to your workspace can help, too.

But, remember to put away your work materials at the end of the day so you're not tempted to go back to work when you're off the clock.

A lot of camps are still out for the summer, so you may still be working at home with your kids.

"A great way to contain your kids' stuff and keep structure is to create a mini classroom. Take a corner of the bedroom, add a desk and learning items like books and other school-related items," explains Rosenberg.

Rosenberg wants to remind you these simple tricks can help you maintain balance, productivity and beauty within your homes.
