Whether you run a home-based business or just a busy household, creating a work space keeps paperwork organised and clutter controlled, however, a home office doesn’t need to look bland and boring. Decorate it with as much detail as you would any other space and you’ll make it a place you love to be. Home office styling doesn’t have to be scary.
Installing wallpaper or stylish desk accessories instantly prevents a room from looking too ‘office-y’. Select bold statement pieces in on-trend colours.
Plenty of natural light is essential for comfort and mood – position your desk near a window and keep heavy window treatments to a minimum.
Having a place to store things away is extremely important in the home office. If you’re super organised, open shelving with neat rows of books and files will look like a designer-store display.
Comfortable home office furniture should ‘fit’ your body. If you are a tall person, ensure that your chair and table height will be in proportioned to you using it. Conversely for shorter people, a chair that is too high and non-adjustable may have your feet dangling like a child. Comfortable office furniture should look great, but feel like you can sit in it for hours on end.
