When designing a home office it can be simple to get carried away with practicality, making sure you have the perfect computer, filing cabinet, and bookshelf. In this moment, we tend to forget that we have to spend a lot of time in the space, and therefore adding some personal touches can make the area much more comfortable for you on a daily basis.
When designing a home office there are several elements that can ensure a working space that is both practical and stylish. Here are some tips that may help you bring a little of your own style into your home office space.
Organise In Style
All offices need storage, unless you like a bit of organised chaos then anything goes. But, if you prefer a filing system with a little structure then finding the right filing cabinet, bookcase, or storage boxes that fit seamlessly into your decor is vitally important.
When trying to match your interiors with your personal style one element is at the top of our list – colour. This is important but perhaps a subtle colour would be more suited for this practical office piece.
Companies such as Furniture At Work take also into account style as well as practicality, that’s why their filing systems come in all shapes and sizes.
When searching for the storage that’s right for you think about the size of your office space, anything too large will take centre stage, and too small may not last you very long. Don’t forget that there are plenty of office desks that also double up as storage, so if your space is small this could be perfect.
The Desk That’s Right For You
Your desk is your personal space within a workplace, whether at home or not. The desk is where people place their family photos and occasionally have lunch, when you think about it is a versatile place.
This leaves you with a lot to consider when searching for your perfect desk. Firstly, think about you as a worker; are you messy or organised? A messy worker may prefer a large desk for their paperwork, doodles, and stationary. Whereas a more organised worker may want space for paper trays, pencil cases, and notepads.
Secondly, the colour of your desk could set the tone for the rest of your office, but don’t forget the worktop is mainly going to be covered so saving that splash of colour for another element such as your chair may be a better decision.
Finding the perfect chair
Let’s face it if you work in an office you spend most of your time sat down, so let’s be kind to our behinds and find a chair that is both comfortable and stylish.
