Creating a Functional Home Office

Categories: Tips, Trends, Organization

Working from home doesn’t mean you can’t still have your own separate, comfortable space to dive into. Here are some tips to make your home office tasteful and functional -


Brighten It Up

Avoid straining your eyes by having abundant lighting. Place your desk in a specific place to take advantage of any overhead lights. Adding a lamp and accent lighting around bookcases or wall décor will ensure you have enough available lit sources.


Purchasing the Right Desk For You

If you spend hours in your home office, this is where you want to put the most consideration. Whether it’s an adjustable desk or strictly sitting, choose a comfortable option paired with a cozy chair, footrest and keyboard rest.


Reserve Your Space

Consider what you don’t need out in the open but would be helpful to have in your office. Perhaps your books or extra accessories? Create areas within your office to stay organized.


Incorporate your Personality

Think about what motivates you. Whether it’s photos or your favorite quote, include reminders around your office to help stay engaged. Don’t forget some of the other comforts you can have desk side that you may not necessarily be able to enjoy at a traditional office like a throw blanket or your furry friend.
