Part of the: Office Fitout Collection

If your home office was put together in a rush or if you’re ready for a change, you need to learn a bit about home office design. Today, we bring you 10 essential home office design tips to help you optimise this space and spruce it up. 

Top 10 Home Office Design Tips

Choose a Good Location

Your home office should be in a quiet, private area. Choosing the right spot will make a big difference, so make sure it’s away from the many distractions in your home. This will optimise productivity and focus throughout the workday. 

Always Prioritize Function

Everything in your home office needs to serve you well and allow you to create a nice workflow. That doesn’t mean you can’t find functional and beautiful furniture. It just means you shouldn’t sacrifice function for form.

Be Space-Efficient

Whether you have a ton of space or very little, make sure you’re using it efficiently. Measure everything to make sure your furniture is the right size and don’t overdo it. You should be able to move freely in the space available.

Pick a Wall Colour You Like

Forget about neutral tones if they’re not your thing. Your home office can be anything you want it to be. So, don’t be afraid to pick a wall colour you actually like. 

Choose a Good Desk and Chair

Your home office desk is where you’ll spend most of your time, so you need to make sure it’s comfortable. The same goes with your chair. Take the time to consider the options; there are a ton of them!

Make Sure There’s Enough Storage

People often overlook storage when it comes to home office design, but that’s a mistake. Consider the available space and make sure you have enough cupboards, filing cabinets, and shelves. 

Have Good Lighting 

The more natural light, the better! If your home office doesn’t allow natural light, mimic it with dimmable lights. Choose nice light fixtures and have a quality desk lamp so you can create a cosy environment. 

Organize Your Tech

Few things are more cluttering than cables and wires. If you have a lot of technological devices, make sure that you have proper cable organisation. Also, consider wireless options whenever possible. 

Personalize Your Space

When you’re thinking about home office design, don’t sacrifice your own style. Let your personality come through and choose things that make you feel good and inspired. 

Create a Floor Plan

Last but not least, you should create a floor plan for your home office design. This will allow you to organise your ideas and make sure you’ll have everything you need. Additionally, it will help you visualize the kind of furniture and the placement for everything. 

Your home office design needs to be intentional and personal. The more you make the space your own, the happier you’ll be to inhabit it. This will benefit your productivity, focus, mood, and overall wellbeing.
