Home offices are now more popular than ever before. The idea of remote work or owning a home-based business is more common than you may think. Even when you work from home, productivity should always be the goal, and you should strive to have an environment that’s conducive to your workflow. What’s excellent about home offices is that you can be as creative as you want to be, and depending on the amount of space you have, the decorating possibilities are plentiful. Here are some home office decorating tips that will fit any style.
Multipurpose Home Offices
It’s ideal to own a large enough home so that each room is suited for a particular activity such as working out, studying, watching movies, enjoying a good book, and handling business. However, sometimes there isn’t enough space. In this case, you’ll have to learn how to maximize your multipurpose office space. Wherever you get work done, you need a practical work space that’s versatile and motivates you to be productive.
How can you achieve this? Stay away from bulky office furniture. Choose a desk that doubles as a vanity or a console table. Choose a bookshelf where you can store office supplies and neatly organize household items.
Home Offices Dedicated Strictly for Work
If you have a room that you can dedicate as your office space, then you’re lucky. Having this option is quite the advantage, but it can also seem overwhelming because you have such a blank canvas. Try decorating your home office with an executive desk as well as wall-to-wall shelving. If you have ample space, consider adding a sitting area for your clients.
How to Find Your Home Office Style
Working from home is a luxury. The ideal home office is both comforting but doesn’t allow you to lose focus. Some key considerations are deciding what pieces of office furniture you need, how much storage you need, and how your office will function. Ultimately, tailor the office to your lifestyle. If you’re someone who knows that it doesn’t take much to get you distracted, go for a minimalistic approach. If working in a dull setting, well, bores you, then try pops of color or brightness, transitional spaces. Here are a few key pieces that all, or most home offices should have:
- Office Desks: corner desks, writing desks, and executive desks
- Office Chairs
- Organizational /Storage Pieces: Bookcases/File Cabinets
- A Well-Lit Work Environment: Desk lamps and floor lamps
