Working from home has a lot of perks, including an easy commute, a better work-life balance, and designing an office that is perfect for you. Creating an office space to fit your style and aesthetic will take your working from home experience to a whole new level. Here are a few tips on creating the ultimate home office:
It’s best to know what kind of look you are going for before beginning your home office project. There are so many great resources out there to do your research. You also want to remember when researching inspiration to keep in mind that some things may look great but may not be functional. For example, you may see a chair that fits the look you are going for, but it may not have the proper support for your back. Another thing to think about is storage; you want to make sure the desk accommodates your project files. Keeping in mind an aesthetic yet functional design is a great start to your new home office project!
One of the many working from home advantages is choosing the location you want for your home office. Introducing plenty of natural light will help steer you away from the feeling of being back in the office again where you sit and don’t know what it looks like outside. Natural light is beneficial even for your zoom meetings. Take advantage of all the natural light you can get! You don’t want to forget to add lamps for the darker hours of the day!
Large, bulky file cabinets can get in the way of the look you may be trying to create. A great alternative to keep that clean, organized look is adding shelving and built-in bookcases. This way, you can decorate and make it look nice for not only the style of your office but even as a backdrop in your zoom meetings.
Having a place to think or even read other than your desk chair is important. So look into adding a comfy piece of furniture for when you want to take a relaxing break or just need somewhere else to sit. This can also add more style to the room by adding a nice throw or even an extra coffee table and lamp!
