An Outstanding OfficeDebra
Whether you work from home or just need a separate space in your house for business related tasks or hobbies, an office is a wonderful addition to any home. It doesn’t take a lot of decorating skill to make your home office a comfortable and creative space. Just concentrate on these main areas to create a work space that works for you.
The focal point of an office is, of course, the desk. It is where you will be the majority of the time you are in your office so make sure you find a desk that you love. Whether your tastes are more minimal or elegant, choose a desk that fits your style and needs. If your office is very small, opt for a dorm size or corner style desk to make sure it is not overwhelming your space. Don’t forget about the chair, which is just as important as the desk. Get one that is comfortable but also goes with the style of the desk.
Another vital aspect of an office is storage. Most desks have a few drawers but it is also smart to get some shelving or cabinets as well. If you are limited on space, don’t be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to storage. Some small end tables, consoles or even nightstands can make great, space saving storage solutions.
The final aspect of having an outstanding office is to fill it with things that motivate you. Whether you use your office for art or accounting, surrounding yourself with inspirational pieces will help you accomplish your work. This Apartment Therapy article suggests hanging a mood board above your desk where you can easily tack and see items that inspire you as well as more practical items like calendars and lists. Other inspirational items could include books, pictures and decor that you like.
