Take Your Home Office to the Next Level
Whether your home office is designated space for running a business, your remote workspace or simply a nook for paying bills and organizing your schedule, you deserve more than a metal desk and extra chair stuffed into a spare corner.
An office which reflects the design and comfort of the rest of your home is a place you’ll want to burn the midnight oil. Here are 5 designer tips to take your home office to the next level.
1. Don’t Sacrifice Form for Function
Your desk, shelves and storage should serve you, not the other way around. Consider your workflow and what items you need at your fingertips before investing in furniture, and then look for pieces that are both beautiful and functional. Home office furniture should complement other rooms in your house; if your home has traditional decor, warm wood and soft, comfy chairs are ideal.
If your home has a more contemporary feel, add artistic accents and modern metal furniture.
2. Invest in a Great Chair
You spend hours parked in your office chair; a beautiful, ergonomically correct, comfortable seat is worth every dime.
3. Paint the Walls a Colour You Love
Forget “office beige”: You need a colour that gets your work motor humming. For some people, that’s a bright, cheery color like orange or lime green. Others need a calming shade like botanical green or deep blue to perform.
4. Give Yourself a View
Position the desk where you can stare at something more interesting than a blank wall (even if you do love the colour) when you glance up from the computer. A window’s natural light is ideal, but if you’re in a windowless space, hang a picture above the desk, or position your chair to face the door.
5. Master Your Technology
There’s not much you can do to beautify the computer, printer and phone, but you can hide unsightly cords. Start by making sure your equipment is close to outlets and easy to access if you need to unplug. Encase cords on the desk in a fabric cord cover, and feed the cords into a desk grommet, a plastic or metal cap that helps guide cords through a hole in the desk and hides them underneath. Tame the cord jungle on the floor with cord winders, tubing, or a wire organizer that’s attached to the desk and lifts the cords off
