Shape your home office into a space with personality.

Office2Do you have a home office that’s an afterthought, that provides function but with little thought to aesthetics? If so, consider upgrading your home office into a personalized workspace that’s embellished with beautiful furniture, color, artwork and rugs. Make your home office both warm and efficient, by including the right touches.

 

Office3A functional desk is key, as is a high-quality desk chair that’s the correct height and provides comfort for YOU! But don’t just focus on function. Shop for stylish furniture that makes you feel good to be in your home office and proud to show the room to others, rather than shutting the door when friends and family come to visit.

Here’s what you should consider when redesigning your home office:

  • Customize the space for the tasks you want to complete there, whether it’s major desk work every day or just checking your email once in a while
  • Add good illumination that includes ambient lighting and task lighting at your desk
  • Think about all the devices you need to accommodate, including computer(s), printer(s), charging stations, file cabinets and more
  • Establish a method to hide clutter and cords

More ideas to consider:

  • Add window fashions that block the glare on your computer and other devices Office4
  • Consider open shelving to display work-related memorabilia, as well as closed cabinets to store office necessities like paper and toner cartridges
  • You may even want to change the name of your room to a study or library to make it sound more beautiful! 

Make your home office into a reflection of your personality this season.

Home Office Not Just For Function

2 Sep

A home office is not an impersonal work cubicle.

Make it a warm, inviting space personalized with color, artwork, rugs and memorabilia, as well as totally functional.
So often, our home offices are an afterthought – a room that’s functional, but not fashionable, and often they end up

as the place that collects clutter. Don’t let that happen to you! Make your home office a reflection of your personality, as well as a functioning room for the tasks you need – or want – to do there.
Whether you call this room a home office, a study or a library, your first HomeOffice3consideration is to customize it for the tasks you need to complete. You may need this room for heavy-duty desk work on a daily basis, or just use it once in a while to check your laptop or write a few personal emails.
Most important is a desk that works for you and a good quality desk chair that’s the right height and is comfortable for you. And why not buy a stylish desk and chair, instead of the cheapest functional pieces of furniture you can find? Good lighting is key too – not just ambient lighting, but task lighting on or above your desk. Think ahead about all the devices and equipment you need, including computer(s), printer(s), file cabinets and more.

Other enhancements to consider include:

  • built-in shelving to display work-related memorabilia, including certificates, diplomas, awards and photos
  • closed cabinets to store necessities that don’t look very pretty – envelopes, paper and toner cartridges
  • a system to hid the “ugly stuff,” such as modems, routers, surge protectors, chargers and those oh-so-many cords that go along with all of the above
  • window fashions that block the glare on your computer screen that happens at certain times of day or certain times of the year

Whether you use your home office to complete important work assignments or just read the newspaper, take the time to make it a place that reflects your personality.
