The perfect home office is a different space for different folks. Not everyone can get by with just a small desk and a laptop, and the nature of your work largely determines what its overall design is. Not to mention the case of your personal taste, comfort, and preferences. You’ll ultimately want a workspace that is convenient and productive; where you can work every day without being disturbed.
A Bit of Breathing Space
Home offices are no longer about working alone and you probably want a place that also allows you to rest and rejuvenate a bit as you take those short breaks on a long day. This means a considerably larger home office where you might have a couch in the corner or a small sitting area that is just perfect for tiny breaks. (Photo: Cohen)
Healthier and Eco-Friendly Spaces
Skylights, clerestory windows, and windows that bring in ample natural light without heating the room are great options. Apart from natural light, also consider opening the home office up to the natural view outside, or adding an indoor plant or two to the mix. (Photo: Pinterest)
The style feels casual, elegant and is easy on the eyes. It also embraces all the principles of calming, eco-friendly design and you can always add your own personal touches to the space to give it a more global touch. (Photo: Pella Hedeby)
Versatile Desks for How You Work
As home offices are becoming more permanent, rather than just a laptop and a desk, standing desks and ergonomic work chairs are a must-have! (Photo: Houzz)
If you want your office space to look tidy and striking, one of the easiest ways to achieve this is by using only one or a few colors for your furniture and décor. The color or colors you choose can also help you achieve a particular atmosphere or vibe for your office without much effort. (Photo: Pinterest)
It doesn’t matter what you plan to do in your home office – sales training, data analyzing, IT, blogging, auditing, jewelry making, or marketing. It is not surprising that designers recommend paying as much attention as possible to the design of such workspaces: the atmosphere in them should be conducive to productive work and creativity without any inconvenience and distractions.
