28 Interior Design Ideas – Working With Your Work Space


The recent downturn in the economy forced a lot of people out of their remote offices and into home offices. A lot of interior design trends have spun off from this trend and one of them is the newfound importance of how the home work space is decorated. Whether you’re looking to redecorate your workspace or are looking to buy a house and consider the home office to be a deal breaker, you should be paying attention to this room. Here are a few tips to whip your home office into shape.

Will You Be Entertaining Clients Here?

This is an important question to ask for a couple of reasons. Most importantly, you will need to keep room for at least two extra chairs in the room (in addition to the one you’ll be sitting in, more on that later). You don’t want to create a suffocating atmosphere in your office space. You’ll be spending a lot of time in here so you’ll want it to be roomy. If you’re one of the 3 million people that TeleNetwork Systems estimates work from home in the United States, you will need a healthy and visually pleasing workspace if you want to maximize your productivity. If your clients will ever be in this room, the last thing you want to do is send them into a claustrophobic fit.

The Chair

Your chair is about as important as the computer you’ll be working on. If you’re comfortable while you’re working, you’ll be more productive. Don’t skimp on the chair. An ergonomically designed chair might cost a bit extra, but you’ll recoup any extra expenses by saving on fewer trips to the chiropractor.

Storage

If you’re anything like me, you don’t list “organization” as one of your strong suits. This is why it’s doubly important that your home office space be full of storage options. For a contemporary feel, install a series of hanging shelves on the wall. Instead of putting them one on top of the other, arrange them at varying heights and varying distances apart from each other. For a more traditional look, look into buying a bookshelf that has a deep, warm tone to it. Mahogany is always a great choice for people looking to keep a traditional look at their office.
