Your work space can be full of style, but having a neat and organized home office can also lead to so much productivity. Whether it is a nook in the corner or open air space for your entire office, go with what works for you. Below are nine home office ideas to help you design a space that is right for you!
1. Organized Desktop
A neat and organized desktop leads to productivity and a clear mind which enables this productiveness.
2. Space-Saving Silhouettes
Just because your space is small, doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style. Look for contemporary designs that maximize function – think drawer, shelf and surface space – while maintaining slender silhouettes.
3. Visual Inspiration
Letting your unique style shine through your home office space isn’t just good for aesthetics – it can also help to fuel your creative thinking, and there’s no better way to get that inspirational feeling than with decorative office accents that reflect your personality. To keep the creative flow going without distracting you from the work at hand, keep the colors bold and the designs clean and minimalistic.
4. A Statement Lamp
Late night projects don’t just happen: they take passion, dedication, and a lot of lighting! A necessary fixture in every type of home office, a strong table lamp is also one of the most effortless ways to balance out a room’s style.
5. The Open Air Space
You don’t have to leave your indoor office to get the rejuvenating benefits of a cool breeze on a warm day – simply position your desk and chair so they face a door or window that opens to a backyard or patio space. To keep your workstation in line with the breezy feel and natural scenery, opt for see-through materials, minimalistic textures and organic colors; an iron table lamp paired with a glass-and-wood desk offers just enough understated boldness to complement an open-air view while keeping you focused on the task at hand.
6. Warm Colors
Depending on the type of work you’ll be doing, you might want to consider soft, warmer neutrals over bright colors. While the former can help to focus and relax, the latter can help energize and inspire. Think about the purpose you want your workspace to serve, and decorate accordingly!
7. Nook Study
This charming workstation is actually in the corner of a living room – and it’s the perfect amount of “tucked away.” Plus, I love the bold color of the chair – very inspiring!
Plants, even of the indoor varieties, emit natural detoxifiers to help purify the air. So, if you need to ‘clear your head,’ do it with nature!
9. Window Arrangement
Without a doubt, natural light is the most refreshing style accessory. Position your home office furniture under a window, and incorporate light-reflective elements like glass and bright white to truly maximize its brightening potential.
