Welcome to this post: Work From Home with Quartet.
Work From Home with Quartet Glass Dry-Erase Boards
Fortunately for me, I started working from home for my full-time job months before our current planetary situation. I was pretty proud of my make-shift standing desk set up in our living room. It allows me to stay in the action for letting Kona (our black labrador mix rescue) outside when she needs to go out and also walk just a few steps into the kitchen for a quick coffee refill and/or snack.
Though I’ve generally been happy with my set-up, I truly didn’t know about the potential for the space. I didn’t know what I was missing. Also, being someone that’s a fan of keeping my workspace somewhat decluttered, I wasn’t looking for more things to add to my desk.
My stance on that completely changed when I learned about Quartet Glass Dry Erase Boards, computer pads and home office additions. Here’s a little background on Quartet:
Established in 1954 as Quartet Manufacturing, the Quartet brand quickly became the premier provider of whiteboard, bulletin and chalkboard products. ACCO Brands acquired the company in 2005 and continues to build on its history of innovation and superior quality by expanding its selection of dry-erase, glass boards and whiteboards for creative, corporate and education audiences.Courtesy of Quartet.com
Here are the attributes that initially drew me to Quartet as a product line that could feasibly work in my space:
- Beautiful designs
- Practicality + usefulness
- Quality + durability
- Efficient designs take up minimal space
- How they serve as a reminder to dream + create
Overall Experience with Quartet Glass Dry Erase Boards
It’s obvious that my workspace has received a major upgrade both in terms of design aesthetic and practical tools to make my workflow more efficient. What’s not so obvious is that I’ve truly felt more encouraged to write things down. Whether it’s a few words I recently heard that are inspiring me, or a few things I need to get done, or somethings to brainstorm on; I’ve found myself reaching for these boards.
Something about the appear of having them sitting pretty on my desk has served as a reminder to keep creating. Especially in a time like this, any reminder to go inside of myself and stay in my flowstate is a good thing.
I’ve even had weeks where I used one of the boards for weekly to-do’s, the computer pad for daily to-do’s and then the other notepad for how to prioritize them. I’ve also found myself differentiating them by work stuff vs. blog stuff. Since blogging is not my full time job, I sometimes feel like I’m juggling a lot in terms of time allotment for both things.
Since I have such a deep enthusiasm for my work as a blogger, I care a lot about the quality and workmanship that goes into my content. It needs to feel both authentic to me and provide value to my community and/or the brand I’m sharing about.
Each Quartet product comes with a dry-erase marker that comes equipped with an eraser on the cap. Quartet also provides multi-colored packs of markers as well.
In addition to their small space friendly boards, Quartet also makes several other board sizes and materials such as cork boards and fabric boards. If you have a larger space that you’re looking to outfit, be sure to take a look at their full product line to find the best fit for your space.
