How I’ve Created a Better Home Work Environment

Our apartment is quite spacious, but it’s not huge as far as square footage is concerned. Knowing this, I didn’t foresee any problems with our standard WiFi connection.

Unfortunately, I was very wrong!!

Our complex is apparently in an area notorious for its poor reception, so imagine my disappointment when I couldn’t get adequate service throughout our entire place. This is not conducive for my work-from-home needs, and it’s the last thing I wanted to be worried about in the midst of juggling family life and my business.  

This is where TP-Link’s new Deco M5 Whole-Home Wi-Fi System comes in!

The Deco M5 Whole-Home Wi-Fi System is everything I never knew I needed. 

First and foremost, it was important for me to have full access to my Wi-Fi at a fast speed, and not just when I’m inches away from the router. I try to get a lot of work done at night, but it doesn’t always go as planned. I often have deadlines and work that must be done during the day, and the location with our best Wi-Fi signal is our living room.

This presents a problem because this is also my daughters’ main play area, and trying to work in that space  with them isn’t practical at all!

I mean, they’re cute and all, lol, but I’d prefer to use the desk/mini-office space we created in our bedroom. The problem is that the master bedroom has the worst reception of our entire apartment so I could never use this area until now!!


Seriously, this is a game-changer and I’m so happy that I’m no longer limited.

In addition to it’s range, TP-Link’s Deco Whole-Home Wi-Fi System offers a safe connection and excellent options for parental controls. Although our girls are young, they use the iPad and are very familiar with technology. However, we know that everything (most things, really) isn’t in their best interest.

Having the option to manage what they can access and for how long is something that will become more and more imperative as they get older.

One concern I had prior to receiving the Deco Whole-Home Wi-Fi System was the set-up. Blog or no blog, I’m not the most tech-savvy person and I didn’t want the task to stress me out. Because of this I waited until my dear hubby got home to help me, but the truth is, I didn’t need it! He gave me a hand anyways, but there is a Deco app that walks you through the entire process and it’s so easy!

I’m looking forward to more productivity, peace of mind, and efficiency moving forward, and you can check out the video below for more details on the set-up and how we are using TP-Link’s Deco M5 Whole-Home Wi-Fi System in our home!

What are some ways you’re making your work space work for you?
