Awesome Tips For Designing A Home Office

Awesome Tips For Designing A Home Office

Whether your home office is a space where you work from everyday, use to run your business or use now and then to deal with bills. You deserve more than an old desk and chair stuffed into a spare corner.

To be able to work productively, you need a space that is stylish, comfortable and pleasant to spend time in. That is why it is so important that you take the design and style of your office seriously.

To help you create a stylish, practical work space, we have come up with some awesome decorating tips to help you.

1. Choose the location of your office wisely

Sticking a desk inside a tiny closet and calling it your office is not a good move to make. You will most likely spend many hours working in your office, so it is important that it has enough space for you to work comfortably.

Ideal spaces for a home office are spare bedrooms, converted attics and basements or unused outhouses or sheds. Think about where there is a suitable space in your home for a home office. Perhaps you could convert the guest room that never gets used into a practical office space? Or, perhaps you could transform your attic storage space into a usable office space? Whatever you decide, just make sure that you have enough room to work comfortably.

2. Paint the walls a colour you love

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that because it is an office, the walls have to be dull and boring. It’s your office; you can paint the walls whatever colour you like. Instead of opting for office beige, instead pick a colour that motivates you.

For some people, bright, bold colours, like lime green, orange and cherry red are perfect office colours. But, for others, calming shades are required, like pastel blue, botanical green or eggshell.

Your office needs to be decorated to a high standard, especially if you will be holding meetings with clients in there. So, unless you are a skilled decorator, it might be a good idea to leave the painting to the professionals. For a professional decorating service, try rob's decorators for painters North London.

3. Invest in practical furniture

While it’s a good idea to choose office furniture that you love and that works well with the design of the room. Don’t invest in something that is impractical. For example, while a vintage writing desk may be beautiful, for running a business from, its small size makes it impractical. To be able to work productively in your office, you need a good sized desk that allows you to do everything that you need to do.

Don’t settle for a basic office chair. You will spend most of your time sat in your chair, so it is important that it is comfortable and fully supportive of your back and neck. Otherwise, you could end up with long-term neck or back problems.

4. Accessorize

Unless you are going for a contemporary, minimalist look, make sure to add unique and stylish accessories to your home office.

For instance, you could add pretty curtains, cute pen and pencil holders and a stylish waste paper bin, to your office. You could also, hang inspirational pictures and prints on the walls, or framed versions of your kid's artwork.
