Carving out a space that’s all your own and designing it so that you’re at your best is what creating your home office space is all about. The only thing that matters when you design this space is YOU! With that said, I came up with a list of tips for how to design your home office space.
It's all about location! If you’re anything like me, you’ve lived in all kinds of places and have learned your home office likes and dislikes. But, if you're still unsure of where the best location is for you, then here are a couple of things to consider:
I'm an organization junkie. Talking about it makes me super happy, so this is one of my favorite tips! Think horizontally and vertically when it comes to storage. This home office does it right with their custom filing cabinet desks and small item storage solutions. Plus the floating shelves really make the walls work for them.
Beyond natural light, think about overhead lights or lamps when designing your home office. Especially, if you’re a night owl. Eye strain is no fun, so making sure you have plenty of light is crucial. Plus, it helps create a nice ambiance. The big tip here is to layer light into the room so that you can adjust the amount of light you want depending on your mood or task.
The most important part of designing your office is to love the look of your space. There’s nothing worse than spending hours on end in a room that makes you feel less than stellar. So, splurge on things that make you happy!
Bring in some natural elements with things like Stikwood sustainable wood wall planks or natural fiber rugs such as jute. After all, looking around you and feeling a connection with the real world while you work is priceless.
Stepping away from your desk (and the computer that sits on it) is important. Having a comfy space to sit back and think, read a book, or solve a problem is more than a luxury, it helps productivity. Your comfy space can be as simple as a chair sitting in a corner or as luxurious as a book nook. It totally depends on your space and your needs.
No matter how you choose to design your space, make sure it works for you!
