Having a study or an extra room is idyllic; your office is already awaiting you – all it needs is a touch of your personal style.

Add Character to your Home Office

One of the advantages of a home office space is that you can inject as much personality and style to it as you would to the rest of your home. Start with the essentials. Choose a work desk that suits your theme, scheme, and professional requirements.

What about a classic design for a desk, or maybe a mid-century inspired one with a simple and clean-lined silhouette? Or even a boho space with colored walls and colorful details. Where would you like to spend your working hours? You just have to choose!

Layering styles and eras give rooms a richer look. Choose a work desk that doubles as a vanity or a console. Decorate with elements that blend well with your personal style and ones that provoke your imagination.

Visually interesting spaces kindle creativity. Instead of opting for blank walls try to incorporate some color, whether in the furniture you choose or by adding some natural greens. Feng Shui suggests that warm tones are the best for creativity and cool ones for more logic-based work.

Anywhere you choose, your chair should ideally offer strong lower back support and allow your feet to sit firm and level on the floor. Prefer a high back, as it will naturally make you sit up straighter.

Natural light is proven to boost productivity, mood, and reduces the chances of fatigue that can occur due to the screen time per day. Choose a spot that is close to a window – fresh air is a blessing always. If you’re using table lamps, try and choose a lampshade that roughly aligns with the top of your screen. Doing so will ensure that you’ll get maximum light and minimum glare.

Finish the look by adding a muted toned pinboard to your workspace, so that anything you add to it will stand out. Here you can pin your to-do lists, important notes, quotes and anything else you will like and need to view on a daily basis.
