In today’s digital age, there’s no need to go into the office every day, our virtually connected lives make it easy to work from anywhere that has a wifi signal! Without the constant interruptions and having other people to distract you, it’s easier to get more done simply by working from home occasionally…as long as you don’t get easily distracted by the tv and your favourite boxset! Here are tips to help you when styling your home office.
Productivity only goes so far in a home office. Working from your bed will not make you the most proficient. But a functional work space doesn’t have to take a lot of space, all you need is a desk for your laptop/computer.
If you are looking to start working remotely or are a new business, perhaps working for yourself, try these home-office decorating ideas to give you the most optimal work space, get your interior design juices flowing!
We always think of home offices as stale, boring spaces. Yet they really don’t have to be. If you’re feeling this way about your office, then change things up!
If you’re tired of staring at a blank wall, try moving your desk to the middle of the room, or to face a window. Get some of that natural light on your face throughout the day. There’s nothing better to make you feel more awake and productive than having a great source of natural light.
Just because it’s an office, doesn’t mean it has to be a dull space with plain white walls. The space should reflect your personality. Try painting your walls an inspiring colour. Something that’s going to get you motivated every morning. Make your office a space you enjoy being in.
Perhaps you could add a splash of colour with a fun painting when styling your home office. A brightly coloured rug or even some plants or flowers. If you have the budget for a bit of a re-vamp, perhaps you could even go as far as to change up the flooring as well. Something like lvt flooring would be perfect for office space, especially if you have a desk chair on wheels!
LVT flooring is easier to install than that of a wooden floor, plus it’s cheaper as well. There are also so many options to choose from when it comes to the design. From authentic wood to marble and stone effect. Think outside the box, you don’t just have to opt for a plain carpet!
All you really need for a home office these days is a desk of some kind. Perhaps a desk lamp for those wintery days and of course, a comfy chair. There are so many different types of desks available these days so you shouldn’t find it hard to find one that suits you.
From the old fashioned big chunky desks. To the more modern standing desks that adjust their height at the touch of a button! Then there are the chairs – the standard office desk swivel chair. Boring, but they get the job done. To the more lavish, velvet covered ones. Or perhaps even a gaming chair, with built in speakers and USB ports for all your devices.
When it comes to the home office, storage is everything, however, space doesn’t have to be an issue when it comes to home offices. Obviously, there are the usual types of storage like shelving or desk draws, but why not repurpose is unused closet perhaps?! They generally look a lot nicer than normal office storage and it’s a great way to recycle your old items. Give it a lick of paint and it’ll look as good as new!
If you don’t have a lot of spare space at home, there’s no need to dedicate an entire room to your home office. In this living room, you could always carve out a small bit of space for your desk in your living room or dining room perhaps.
Hopefully this has given you some inspiration when it comes to designing and styling your home office. Think outside the box and be creative!
