With more and more of us working from home these days, dedicated home workspaces have become not just a luxury but a necessity. While it can be entirely possible to work from almost anywhere, having a dedicated workspace will ultimately improve your productivity and enhance your serenity.
Whether you have a large area devoted to being an office space or a reimagined closet space, and whether you enjoy a minimalistic office that’s light and bright or prefer bold maximalism, we’ve got all the tips to make your home office work for you.
The Classic Office
Wooden executive desks and cabinets are timeless pieces to invest in. Neutral tones that are functional and beautiful are perfect for accent pieces like chairs, shelving, and filing cabinets. Add modern touches with area rugs, framed art, statement wallpaper, and personal décor that tells a story to make the space feel homey. A can of paint can also transform a room; a hot wall color for 2023 is a rich navy.
The Minimalist Office
For those that prefer a clean, uncluttered space, the minimalist trend keeps things sleek and organized. Whites and gray tones are the perfect backdrops for small pops of color and personality. Keep furniture, lighting, shelving, and wall art simple and streamlined. The most important design aspect is stylish storage solutions to keep the space uncluttered, structured and focused.
The Multi-Purpose Office
You can easily make your office space work as a home gym or yoga studio as well. Add an area for exercise equipment or yoga props with custom furniture to help divide the room. Utilize home office pieces with adjustable settings like ergonomic chairs and adjustable desks that can be used for both home office work and home workouts. Add in adjustable lighting, plants, candles, and calming colors for a Zen, spa-like feel.
The Rustic Office
For offices with a beautiful view of nature, it’s the perfect scenario for bringing the outside in. Distressed wood and industrial metals paired with vintage leather and stone work well together. Arrange furniture around natural light, and add decorative touches like driftwood, plants, and woven materials for added texture. Nature-inspired artwork will tie it all together for a tranquil spot.
The Creative Studio
Bright colors and plenty of light help inspire innovative projects. And lots of storage solutions, like cabinets, shelves, drawers, cubbies, and art display options, help keep projects organized. Adding unique seating options with color and texture, vibrant accents, inspirational artwork, and craft tables will really get the creative flow going.
The High-Tech Office
An ergonomic desk and station to fit all your high-tech needs are a must. Whether it’s a dual-screen computer monitor or a giant wall screen for work and play, make sure the room is wired for high-speed internet as well as for lighting and audio/visual needs.
Utilize a smart home system for added efficiency, like automated lighting and temperature, as well as voice-activated smart home devices. Custom storage solutions help contain and safely store equipment.
The Home Library
There are many options for storing your prized books. Vertical shelving not only maximizes a smaller space but also creates a beautiful and functional design. Comfy and classic armchairs and sofas are great additions for curling up with a good book. Greenery and artwork with soothing lighting and cozy blankets bring warmth. Another option is adding closed shelving to keep books free of dust.
