WFH has become the new norm for the most of us, so why not transform that empty niche or unused bedroom into the home office you’ve always dreamed of.
If you are incorporating a home office into your living area, the key thing to designing your space is to Conceal. Conceal. Conceal. Nobody wants to look at a bulky printer, cabling or technological jumble when you are unwinding with a glass of wine on the weekend. It is important to invest in a stylish desk with storage or alternatively, a simplistic desk with minimal storage, accompanied with a storage unit to house filing and tech.
It’s imperative you invest in a comfortable and supportive desk chair which will support your posture whilst working in front of the computer all day. Long gone are the days where desk chairs were the eyesore, and now you can invest in a statement piece which will look good as well as feel good.
An office “should be designed to your style and your taste,” says Washington, D.C.–based designer Kiyonda Powell. “It should allow you to be your best, most productive self.” Depending on your line of work or personality, design your office to reflect this. Perhaps you require a calm and soothing environment to work efficiently or alternatively a bold and vibrant colour palette to help motivate your ideas.
