Saturday, May 14, 2016

If you have a home office or you plan to have a home office, you may be wondering what you can do to make it perfect and decorate it correctly. You want to make sure that your space is luxurious, but that it is also comfortable, so that you can get your work done without the aches and pains of being cooped up in a chair and tiny space. Below, we will go over some home office design tips and you can use these tips to help you dress up your office space.

1. Choose a Decent Location for Your Home Office

You may have heard of people transforming their walk-in closets into an office space and while this may see ideal, it will quickly wear out. Since you will spend a lot of time in your office, you do not want to squish all of your files, desk, and chairs in a small space.

You should choose a room that has a view of the outside world or a room that is spacious and provides you with room to walk around and stretch out when you need it.

2. Don’t Set a Budget on Your Chair for Your Home Office

You need to have a comfortable chair because you will spend a lot of time in it. Make sure that you take time to choose the right chair and sit in a variety of them, so that you know what feels nice. Since the best ergonomic chairs can have a high price tag on them, do not cut corners or limit yourself when it comes to the chair. You will thank us later.

3. Use All Vertical and Horizontal Space in Your Home Office

Since your home office is not likely to be the size of a traditional corner office in a high rise building, you need to make sure that you use all vertical and horizontal space for your items. You can install floating shelves throughout the room and even invest in a bookcase that lines the wall.

In addition, if you have a storage cabinet or two, consider placing them where it makes the most sense e.g. next to a window or somewhere where you are not wasting space.

4. Choose Light Colors and Décor to Match Your Home Office

You do not want your home office to be distracting, which means you should avoid flashy colors and distracting décor. Choose a light, soft color that will brighten the room when the shades are open. When it comes to the décor in your office, keep it to a minimum and rely more on pictures or items you can put on the wall in the blank space you are not using.
