6 Amazing Ideas on How To Spice Up Your Home Office
With this global pandemic where everyone is advised to stay at home, creating a comfortable, functional, and stylish home office is important now more than ever. Regardless if your home office is a place to run your business, a remote workspace, or just a place to organize your schedule and pay your bills, you deserve more than a spare chair and a metal desk in a corner. You need to have a space you’ll want to burn the midnight oil.
So, if you’re planning to set up your home office or revamp an existing one, here are six amazing ideas on how you can spice it up.
1. Find a Perfect Spot for Your Home Office
Don’t discount your real estate! Location is everything. A lot of people tend to settle and set up their home office in a spare corner, but you deserve more than that. You’re going to spend a lot of hours in your home office, so don’t stiff yourself on space.
When choosing your space, consider your ability to withstand distractions. Ask yourself if you work best being in the middle of a busy house or in a quiet space.
If you are expecting clients to stop by, choose a private space with ample seating.
2. Keep it Green and Fresh
Add flowers and indoor plants in your office to breathe some life into your space. Incorporate them with your design to make it look fresh. Adding a lovely plant is said to help in cleaning the air and keeping you feel calm.
A ZZ Plant or a Snake Plant will make your space look pretty and are low maintenance, too! Plus, adding these plants can also add some dimension to your work space.
3. Don’t Sacrifice Function for Form and Vice Versa
Yes, we’re saying you should get the best of both worlds! When planning for your home office, you shouldn’t just consider the design or the function. You have to consider both. Your shelves, storages, and desk should serve you. Consider your workflow and optimize your workspace. This will help you be more efficient and do effective work.
At the same time, your home office doesn’t have to look like a soulless cubicle. You should pick furniture that also complement the other areas of your house.
4. Invest in a Comfortable and Ergonomic Office Chair
It’s tempting to buy those cute and colorful accent chairs, but make sure they’re worth it. Since you’re going to be spending a lot of time parked in your office chair, pick something that is comfortable, has great back support, and ergonomically correct.
These chairs might be a little pricey but trust me, a comfortable seat is worth your every dime!
5. Your Home Office Should Reflect Your Personality
Don’t hold yourself back on being creative. Your home office is your space. Make it a collection of everything you love and make it visually pleasing. If you love art works, hang some of your favorite art pieces. If you want it to be neat, clean, and minimalistic, then go for it!
The thing is - you set the rules. Make sure that your home office is a space you’d love to be in.
6. Have a View
When positioning your desk, consider the view. Find something more interesting to stare at than a blank wall. Face your window, if you have, or hang a pretty artwork or picture to look at when you get tired of your computer screen.
