How To Create the Perfect Home Office Space

You’ve made the decision to work from home and need a great space to do so. Creating a home office can be a fun and creative project. With the right home decor and careful planning and execution, you can create an inspiring workspace that encourages productivity while also looking amazing. 

Consider the Layout and Available Space

Think about what furniture and equipment you will need, and how much space you will require. Avoid cramming too much into one room. Organising your space will help create a sense of order and reduce stress.

Using furniture dividers like bookshelves or rugs is the perfect solution. Of course, the size of the area you have available will determine the size and shape of your desk, and any other furniture such as bookshelves, storage cupboards etc. 

Make the Most of Natural Lighting

Working for extended periods in a dimly-lit or artificially-lit environment can cause eyestrain, headaches and burnout. Whenever possible, arrange your desk near a window so that you can take advantage of the natural light. Place mirrors on the wall opposite the window to illuminate the area further. If you find yourself working late into the evening, position a lamp on your desk to create a comfortable atmosphere.

Add Greenery

Adding plants to your workspace is an easy way to bring life into any home office. Plants help to filter the air, reduce fatigue and increase productivity. Choose low-maintenance options if you tend to forget about watering them, or opt for artificial plants. Succulents, ferns and spider plants are ideal for the home office environment.

Add Some Colour

Your home office should reflect your personality, so don’t be afraid to add a pop of colour. Adding colour with wall art is an easy way to inject life into a drab space. Neutral colours like beige, soft blue and pink are ideal for maintaining a calm environment while still adding a bit of style.
