Here are some home office tips to help you turn whatever space you have into a productive hub:

  • Consider what you actually need and work from there
  • Divide and conquer
  • Think in colours and patterns
  • Let there be light
  • Apply the less is more concept
Consider What You Actually Need

Consider what you actually need and work from there

Go for an ergonomic chair and desk to support your body in the long hours you’ll spend sitting down.  This will occupy a huge space, but you can compensate for it by making sure your desk can be used for storage.

If you need a lot of spaces to put away your things, look for a desk with plenty of drawers or a tall shelving unit to maximize vertical space. Chalkboards and desk organizers will help you stay organized. Instead of buying extension cords for your electrical needs, consider having outlets built into the desk itself.

If you require several gadgets because your work requires for a lot of recording for podcasts or other videos, stacking your machines is the way to go. Budget for a heavy-duty stand desk that can take the weight and heat of all these machines together when working at the same time. Also, invest in sound-proofing your workspace.

Once you've determined what you require, you can begin shopping for what you desire.

Divide and conquer

Divide and conquer 

Don't worry if you don't have a spare room. Instead, try claiming a section of a larger room as your office space. To divide the space, use curtains, a screen, or a room divider. If you're feeling crafty, you could make your own divider by connecting three MDF (medium density fibreboards) panels with hinges and then decorating it with stylish wallpaper.

Divide and conquer

Think in colours and patterns

Darker colours may appear fashionable, but they are far less stimulating and may make you tired and less inclined to work. Keep your space light and airy, but consider painting one wall a brighter colour to inspire you. Try using a pale pastel shade instead, which will instantly make the entire area feel lighter and thus increase productivity.

Patterns may also work for some remote workers. It’s not always about what increases productivity; for the more creative ones, it’s all about activating the creative juices. Patterns or other forms of mix and match work best.

Think in colors and patterns

Let there be light

To feel awake and ready for the day, a well-lit room is essential. When it comes to boosting creativity, lighting can make all the difference, as a dark space can leave you feeling tired and uninspired. It is also crucial where to position the desk in your home office because it will define the flow of the room as it is the most important piece in your workspace.

Less is more

Less is more

When it comes to "just because" decor, less is more. Choose a few stunning pieces that truly bring you joy and incorporate them. You'll walk into a space that isn't cluttered, which will make you more comfortable.

Personalisation also goes a long way. Maybe a coffee nook on the side where you can just enjoy your favorite warm drink or a small plant that you’ve been eyeing for months now.

Interior design doesn't just have to be about making your home look aesthetically pleasing - it can also be about creating a productive and comfortable workspace for yourself. With the right furniture, lighting, and accessories, you can create a space that is both inviting and conducive to getting your work done. When setting up your home office, keep in mind ergonomics and consider working with an experienced interior designer or property stager who can help you select the best pieces to get the job done.

Your home office should be the place that most inspires and motivates you because, let's face it, work will not go away; you need to get things done. Follow these tips to help you create your dream workspace.
