How to Create The Perfect Home Office Workspace

20th October 2017

For maximum productivity and creativity, ensuring your home office is up to scratch should be top of your priorities. In the modern world of 24/7 distractions, having somewhere you can work efficiently without leaving your front door is important. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a full-time blogger, occasional work-from-homer or just need somewhere for the kids to do your homework - a home office is important!

Let us guide you through the best ways to create the perfect home workspace.

Comfort is key

First things first, you’ll likely be sat down for long periods of time in your office. This means you need to put comfort first. Of course, if you take as much pride in your home's style as you do your work, we’re sure that you will be reluctant to purchase anything ‘comfort-first’. However, if you’re shopping for a desk chair from our product range, you’ll never have to compromise on style. For a mix of comfortable and contemporary, we’ve got the chair for you. Look no further than our Como Mesh office chair, with an ergonomic design your back will thank you for.

Keep it personal

Everyone knows that no matter how much you enjoy your work, at times it can get dreary. During these times, you need to perk yourself up with some simple features dotted around your home office. Even if your office is for life admin and not work-orientated, a little personal touch will put a smile on your face. Creating a photo mood board of all your favourite faces and places will give you a Sunday of fun, and weeks of happy working hours! Try out cork boards or mesh display panels. You could add postcards, photographs, magazine cuttings or post-it notes to them to brighten up the room. Add funky coasters and a houseplant to your desk to give your space more appeal.

Get smart with storage - tidy space, tidy mind!

If you’re a normal, functioning human being then your office (and life) is probably overloaded with paperwork and files with entirely unknown contents from years ago. If you can fit a cabinet into your office space, it’s a quick fix to being both organised and aesthetically pleasing. However, we know that it’s not always easy to have as much furniture as you desire at your disposable. So if your home office is actually just a corner of your bedroom, we have the perfect solution. A desk is all you need. Check out our range of desks which encompass working space and storage space.

The contemporary Harper desk has a gorgeous sleek white finish and comes with a storage tray for your benefit.

Or perhaps take a look at our Kanta desk which would fit perfectly in a monochrome-themed room.

The Kanta desk is fully customisable – you can mix and match the storage components to suit your needs and lifestyle. You could even double up your desk as a dressing table!

Long story short, it's all about finding clever ways to add charming details or extra functionality. That way, working from home will never seem too strenuous! After all, your home should still feel like home, whether you're baking a cake or filing your taxes.
