home office: Tips to Creating a Stunning Workspace

The home office has become an essential part of the home with many companies choosing to keep their workers remote. Whether you have a whole room designated as your office or just a small area in another room to incorporate a desk, it is important to make it a space that you want to spend time in. Here are some tips to make it a space that will motivate you to get to work!

Add Green

Adding Green to your home office might seem like an odd suggestion. But if you study color phycology, you will learn that Green is a powerful color with many psychological benefits. Many associate Green with nature and beautiful landscapes, this association makes green evoke a feeling of peace and tranquility. Also, the color Green has been found to relieve stress. I can’t think of a better reason to find some way to incorporate the color green into your home office design. Adding Green does not mean it has to be in huge doses. It can be as simple as adding a potted fern.

Get Artsy

Customize your home office with art that speaks to you. Think canvas art and wallpaper murals! Filling your space with bright art will enliven the atmosphere and inspire you, even if you’re spending your days studying statistics.

Think Home Office Chic!

Your environment should reflect your own personality. This is true even with a home office. So don’t be scared to go big. Paint an accent wall a bold color. Add framed pictures that have meaning to you. Hang a chandelier over your desk to give a little glitter and glamour.

Allow Light to Enter your Home Office.

Brighten up your office by placing your desk by a window. Natural light in your workspace can increase your productivity. Also, it can enhance your mood and reduce eyestrain if you stare at a computer all day. If you don’t have a window in your office, make sure you use a variety of artificial lighting types, such as overhead lighting and lamps to adequately light your space.

Display Your Collections

Place your adored collections on show in your home office rather than hiding them. To keep everything looking stylish, confine the collections in one area of the space. Always keep in mind that grouping these items together produces a stunning and powerful presence. However, if you spread them across the room, it might appear a little out of control.

Include a Comfy Seating

Including a comfortable sofa or chair in your home office will help to keep the décor seamless and inline with the rest of your home. It will also be easier for you to switch between your living area and your workstation throughout the day.

Keep Your Home Office Area Clean

Physical clutter is mind clutter. It does not allow you to work efficiently (because you can never find what you need) and it can make you feel anxious and out of control. Always keep your office clean and uncluttered. It is one of the most important points to keep in mind while working from home.

These tips are meant to inspire you. Choose the few that resonate with you and get to work creating a stylish home office that you will love to work in and that is perfect for you.
