Creating the Perfect Home Office

Choose Your Furniture Carefully

Most people don’t get the opportunity to choose the office furniture they spend every day around so be sure to take advantage of your situation. The two most important items you should prioritize your time and budget on are your desk and office chair. Putting style and aesthetics aside, choose an office desk that will make your job easier by having the proper amount of space as well as places for the belongings you’ll need. For example, if you use a computer and an additional monitor, be sure you are choosing a desk that fits your monitor comfortably and leaves plenty of room for your other work materials. As for an office chair, your personal comfort should be a priority but be careful not to choose a chair that is too comfortable, as you don’t want to feel over relaxed. Be sure to also choose a chair that allows you to move easily, for example, choose a chair with wheels for a carpeted office.

Choose Your Room Strategically

If you have the luxury of having more than one option for your home office space, choose a room that will best serve your needs. Think about the various distractions that may be going on around your home during the day and do your best to stay away from them. If possible, choose a room with windows to offer an escape from work when you need it and some natural light which has been known to improve productivity!

Find a Balance in Decor Between Work & Home

Because your office is part of your home, you’ll want it to blend in with the rest of your decor around the house. Finding a balance between these spaces can be a challenge but will make your home office a more personal, enjoyable space.
