5 Tips for Designing Your Home Office
Make It Comfortable. If you're going to be spending hours in your home office, you want it to be just as comfortable as it is practical. Investing in a high-quality chair for your desk or creating a cozy corner for thinking breaks can make all the difference.
Include Things You Love to Look At. From painting an accent wall your favorite color to embellishing your desk with family photos, cherished mementos and interesting knickknacks, personalizing your home office means you'll be happy to spend more time in it.
Storage Comes in All Shapes & Sizes. Everyone's home office looks different and may have unique limitations. Whether you're in the market for a specific style, size or function, it's important to explore various storage options and get creative to find what will best fulfill your needs.
Add Greenery. Whether you're a houseplant connoisseur or a green thumb in training, adding plants to your home office space brings the outdoors in and can really liven up the room. Plus, houseplants can supposedly improve concentration and boost your mood!
Lighten Up. The lighting in your home office can really change things up. Natural light can help keep you calmer and more productive, so set up your desk where you can benefit from the sun shining through your windows. Don't forget table lamps for a warm glow during the darker hours of the day.
