In today’s busy world, we spend more than half of our time in an office. Just think about it: we usually work eight hours a day, five days a week, but if you also have one or two side projects, this time is increased. According to science, 14% of our adult life is spent working, and due to new technologies, this usually means sitting in a chair and working with a desk in front of you.
Yes, we could work from home, but the situation is similar – we’d still be in an office. So, given the fact that we do spend a lot of time in this room, why not make it interesting? Make it more appealing and stimulating? If this thought crossed your mind (especially if you work from home) but you don’t know how to do it, take a look at our ideas.
Don’t be afraid to be bold
If you have the budget and space, then the sky is the limit (so to speak). Even more, if there are no children to roam around and pull things down, you can dream at a luxurious home office. For instance, you could add a breath of freshness by putting a floral, powerful pattern on your walls.
Also, don’t be afraid to add luxurious textures and fabrics to the sitting area. Customers that will visit your office will definitely be impressed by such a powerful and luxurious design. Colourful stools and comfy chairs will transform your working space into an inviting and stimulating area.
Don’t forget about elegant storage ideas like an antique cabinet where you can hide all the files. A luxurious office with no organization system won’t be attractive.
Make use of the small spaces
You don’t actually need an entire room, especially if you work online. When you have children, there’s usually very little space you can use for yourself. However, if you look closely, there may be some space left by the window. Here, you can put a small table and maybe add some flowers in a vase to make it more appealing.
If the window leads to the garden, you’ll have the perfect view that will keep you creative and motivated.
Take care of the lighting
You don’t think that lighting is an important issue when it comes to a home office? Well, here you’re wrong! With the right lighting, you can change the entire design of a room. Even more, in an office area, you will need proper lighting that won’t tire your eyes. Regardless of the fact that you have natural light or not, the office area must be well-light and inviting.
That’s why using a few table lamps or some pendants will completely change the atmosphere of your office. The best part is that you have plenty of choice.
Combine the spaces
An office in the kitchen even though you’re not a cook? Well, yes, it’s possible; and with a few creative tweaks, it can actually look amazing. You will need to delimitate the space by placing the desk in such a way that it’s clear where one ends and the other begins. However, if you cook heavily, this may not be such a good idea.
As you can see, having an elegant office at home is not very difficult. You just have to find the right space.
