Working From Home: Home Office Design Tips

The current global health crisis has transformed the working lives of people all over the planet. For many, the shift from a regular office routine to working from home in a home office may have come quite unexpectedly. While working from home is a dream for some employees, what may come as a surprise is that working from home actually comes with all kinds of advantages. Yes…besides not having to get up as early and being able to work in your pajamas.

A few more advantages of working from home:

  • Increased productivity
  • Saved time and money
  • Flexible schedule
  • No office distractions
  • Increased time with loved ones
  • Custom environment

While many may not consider decorating their home office a top priority, a thoughtfully decorated home office space not only makes working from home more comfortable, but it has also proven to improve productivity and focus energy. It doesn’t take much to create a layout and aesthetic that works for you.

Here are a few of our favorite home office design tips:

1. Keep things organized

In a home office, things can start to pile up and get messy quick. Organizational bins, file cabinets, drawers and desk-top stationary organizers are all your friends.

2. Hang your favorite art

It’s important to remember that your home office space is yours. While most of the space may be functional, hanging some of your favorite minimalist art or installing some floating shelves with plants is always a good idea.

3. Lighting is important

Most office buildings are infamous for their awful fluorescent lighting. Working from home gives you the opportunity to customize your lighting! A well-lit office is an important key to success when it comes to productivity while working from home. Use natural light as much as possible, otherwise we recommend great lamps and soft-hue light bulbs.

4. Follow your heart 

Working from home requires balance, focus and discipline. Your office space is not only a part of your home but actually it quickly becomes one of the most important rooms. Don’t be afraid to go all-out on your favorite themes. If you’re a plant-lover, fill the room with plants. If you’re into hygge, why not add your favorite throw blanket to your office chair and a cozy rug to go with it?
