Working from home has become the norm for plenty of people around the world. This new reality we have been faced with has changed our routines, the way we spend our time and where we get to spend most of our time. The vast majority of people spend most of their days at the office and once this place is replaced by a home office it is of utmost importance to get this room right! If you already had a home office, you might want to redo it to your needs and wants. If you didn’t have one but are in the process of dedicating a room to it, here are some home office décor tips to help you make the best of your space.
The environment in which we work effects our mood, productivity, mood etc… It is therefore essential to create a space which is functional whilst also being aesthetically stimulating.
A home office is only great if it suits the purpose for which it is created…making a space where you are comfortable and happy to work from. Be practical when choosing the main furniture for this room. Your desk, any chair or armchairs, storage space and so on. These are elements on which you should not be willing to compromise. Having said that, practicality by no means translates into boring. Do your research and see what will work best for you.
MATCHING SOFT FURNISHINGS
Are you going for a theme? If so, matching and coordinating will be a must. However, do pay attention not to overdo it since this can translate into a very dull space. Soft furnishings are a great way to bring together the vibe of a room. Think of coordinating curtains, rugs, cushions, throws etc…
Chances are you will be spending a great amount of time in your home office. Turn it into a space you love spending time in by adding accents and statement furnishings. You will be surprised at what a difference these make. Think of plants, a nice sofa with cushions, stylish lighting which is functional but also decorative, scented candles, puffs and much more.
Details, yes…it’s the details that turn a nice room into a great room! Metallic accents are great at serving this purpose. Some prefer to pick one metallic colour and stick with that throughout the room. On the other hand, some like to mix and match. This very much depends on your personal taste. Some examples gold, silver or rose gold, lamps, plant pots and bins.
