As working from home becomes more familiar, many of us have become accustomed to our new environment. However, being surrounded by our home comforts, the temptation to become distracted is through the roof! To help stay on task, here our some inspirational home office ideas to keep you motivated…
As with any design scheme, function should always come first. After all, if your space doesn’t work for you on a practical level, you won’t use it. Set up a large pin board, or if you fancy a project, create a stylish wall planner with chalk paint to get yourself in order.
The centrepiece of any home workspace is the desk. As such a key piece of furniture, the look and style of your desk will inform the rest of the room. From a practical perspective, you should aim to choose a desk that is large enough for you to work on without it dominating the entire space. Since most of our filing is electronic these days, you may even opt for a showpiece table.
If you have shelves or drawers, invest in file boxes or baskets that you can label to store important paperwork. The use of an in-tray will allow you to keep letters and documents handy and tidy before they are filed away. Also, consider purchasing containers in order to store stationery, cables or other miscellaneous items.
While being a functional part of the house, a workspace is also a part of your home so it should reflect your character. An elegant desk chair will immediately add style to your space but make sure it is comfortable so it encourages you to spend time in there! Lighting will also significantly influence the atmosphere of the room; ideally having lighting on different levels will provide you with greater control.
Finally, don’t forget to inject your personality into your room. Houseplants, framed photos or soft furnishings all look great but remember less is more. The overall look should be ordered and minimal to prevent you from becoming distracted and to keep you motivated!
