Having a quiet, organized space in your home is essential to keeping a healthy work-life balance. Check out our recommendations below for creating a versatile home office space!
Comfort is key to being able to work in your office. The first thing you’ll need is a good, comfortable chair. The next thing you’ll need is the right lighting. Good lighting is essential to maintaining focus, productivity and energy. Additionally, without adequate lighting, you’re more prone to eye strain and headaches. Adding a desk light will also come to the rescue when working on meticulous tasks. Be sure to position your computer monitor where there won’t be a glare from a window.
Unless you got lucky with a huge home office space, using the space efficiently is critical. We can incorporate immaculate built-in shelving to keep all of your work and personal belongings organized. You’ll want a desk with plenty of surface area for your computer, notebook, blueprints, files or whatever you need. If you’re especially tight on space, we can design a built-in desk that will give you the space you need without actually taking up much space.
Get your creative juices flowing by painting the walls a fun color. We’ve previously discussed how color can affect your mood, which is something you should keep in mind when choosing a paint color for your home office. Whether it’s mellow and focused or upbeat and creative, choosing the color that helps you be your best self in your office will go a long way to making it a space you want to spend time.
Are you trying to choose whether to convert your extra room into either a guest room or a home office? Why not have both? One of our favorite new trends is converting an extra room into a versatile guest room and office. One way to accomplish this is by adding a pull-out couch for guests to sleep on when the office isn’t in use. Another way to really make the most of this space is to loft a bed above a desk. It’s like a bunk bed without the bottom bunk, and guests will love getting to feel like a kid again. However, keep in mind it’s not easy for some folks to climb up a ladder into bed.
