How To Create An Awesome Home Office

November 10, 2015

If you want to design a home office, there are many ways to go about it, but here’s what we would recommend. The first stage is making sure you have a budget to make your home office dream a reality. You want to be realistic but flexible based on what functions you will need in this office. The second stage is to do some research, look at home office designs that you like, and take notes. For instance, if you need a little inspiration, check out these cool home office ideas on pinterest! The third stage is to speak with a designer – your designer will help you to actually put your ideas on paper and get the next steps in place.

Here are a few things to consider when designing an awesome home office:

  1. Ergonomics
  2. You want your work space to be as ergonomically-friendly as possible. Your computer screen should be a little below eye level, or directly at eye level. Your body will thank you for investing in a good chair. You will be spending many hours of the day in it, so treat yourself.

  3. Lighting
  4. You want to make sure that you are getting natural light. In your design plan, have your desk close to windows. If you have natural lighting, you will increase your happiness levels tremendously. As well, you can take a few minutes out of the day to take a look at nature’s many wonders. Don’t forget to include a few lamps for the late nights.

  5. Storage
  6. Wall storage might be a good option for you if the traditional filing cabinet set up isn’t your style. Ask the professional designer what options they have available and go from there. Depending on your business, there are probably different options that may be of interest to you.

  7. Plants
  8. Bring the garden indoors, and get some low-maintenance flowers or plants to provide you with some beauty in the workspace.

  9. Stock up
  10. Have all of your office supplies handy and order in new/replacement items when you are running low. As well, you might want to have a coffee maker or fridge close by for snacks and coffee breaks.
