How-To: Creating the Perfect Home Office

Having a home office is a dream come true for many! When designing a home office, it’s important to consider style and function. Naturally, you want your space to be beautiful and a reflection of your personality, but you want it to be just as functional as your office at work. We’ve put together a list of our top five must-haves for designing the ultimate workspace.

Cozy seating
Having a comfortable desk chair is definitely at the top of our list. We spend so much time sitting down, so it’s important to have a chair that provides enough back support. A velvet, upholstered accent chair is a great choice for sitting in all day.

Your favorite flowers or a low-maintenance plant would make a wonderful addition to your workspace. Plants are not only nice to look at, but they provide a zen ambience to your space. Succulents are great, because they add pizzaz to your space and are very low-maintenance.

Natural lighting
Since much of your time is spent indoors, having a workspace with great natural lighting is key. Natural lighting helps to keep you inspired throughout the day and highlights your interior decor.

Artwork and photographs
Personalize your space with your favorite artwork and photographs of the people you love. Having these personal mementos will inspire you to do your best work.

Decorative throw
Having a decorative throw will provide a lot of comfort and warmth (especially during those cold winter months). Aside from keeping you warm, throws provide a lot of style and personality. Just lay it over your seat or office couch for an added layer of design.

Designing an inspiring workspace will allow you to work more efficiently and happily. What are your must-haves for designing a home office? Share your inspiration with us on Facebook!
