Putting Together Your Designer Home Office

Updated: Feb 23, 2023

Home offices are becoming increasingly common, in large part because of the flexible work environment that exists in our digital age and also for their increased comfort. Two-in-one setups like desks and laptops, as well as virtual office programs, make it easy for people to work from home. But it’s often difficult to find productive spaces that are also aesthetically pleasing. Your home office is an important space, so although it takes some time and planning, it should be a valuable project to undertake.

Here are some vital elements not to be overlooked when designing your luxurious productive corner:

Storage Spaces

Home offices are often cramped spaces with limited storage options and little privacy. To make the most of your space, you’ll want to plan first and finding the right cabinetry is a crucial element to making the most of space in your home office.

Staying Organised

Don’t keep papers and materials in random locations in your home office—they should be in an easily accessible area, such as on a custom table, desk, or drawer. You’ll also want to establish a filing system so you can easily find what you’re looking for. For example, create a separate section in your filing system for paperwork related to your clients and a section for your other work-related materials. You can also create bins coordinated in colour and style with your furniture. Having aesthetic synchronicity will help you stay organised and make your office run more smoothly.

Decide On Your Workspace First

When deciding on the layout and configuration of your home office, it’s important to consider your workspace first. It’s very easy to get overwhelmed by the many configurations and options available when it comes to home office furniture. Before you make any purchases or renovations, it’s important to determine exactly what your workspace consists of. You may want a desk, workbench, and/or cubicle, or you may just want a desk and chair. It’s helpful to sketch your workspace before going for a decor consultation or making any large purchases.

Plan For Privacy And Comfort

To remain productive and focused, it’s important to have privacy and be comfortable. You don’t want your office to be too open or loud—you want to be able to focus without external distractions. And you don’t want to feel overheated or cramped in your office—you want to be at ease while you work. It’s important to make sure your home office has enough ventilation so you don’t feel like you’re being baked or cramped. The styling and colour coordination you use should also importantly be one of ease and relaxation to you. When it comes to privacy, there are possibilities to install blackout curtains, sound-absorbing panels in your ceiling or walls, or install a surround sound system supported by cabinetry to envelop you in your favourite sounds.
