Working from home certainly has it’s fair share of pros and cons. Spending so much time alone in our home offices can sometimes be a little dull so all the more reason to make sure our home office space is as relaxing and as fabulous as possible.
Having a well organised and attractive home office space makes all the difference to how you feel about your work life. So with that in mind here are our top tips on how to make your home office as organised and looking so gorgeous that it becomes a space that you actually enjoy spending time in.
You will need to start by looking at all the items you need in order to carry out your daily work tasks. Your office essentials, such as your computer or laptop, all your files and folders and phone all need to have a rightful home and a place in your office where you know they live. So, think about the best ways you can organise these office essential objects to best make use of the space you have available and to find the most logical place for all these items so they are always close at hand.
In terms of the layout of your office, you should also be looking at the smaller details to make sure your office is as organised and efficient as possible. Your power cables, for example are surprisingly important when thinking about the layout of your work station so make sure your electrical items and lamps can be plugged in with minimum distraction to your overall work space. There is nothing worse than seeing wires everywhere, or more annoying than having to keep going backwards and forwards across the room to access certain items if you have not organised the space well enough.
Be Creative with your Space
You should also be really thinking about how you can work with the area that you have got and how you can make that area look really special and inviting.
Storage units that keep files and stationery hidden away are really important in making sure that your office is organised and that everything has a proper place to be stored away, whilst making sure that items you use regularly are close at hand.
A comfortable, professional and ergonomically designed chair is one of the most important items you can invest in when working from home, so this is one item that you should definitely treat yourself to, making sure it is a high quality.
The lighting is really important in your office so you will want to make sure that you have a good desk lamp to make sure that you are not straining your eyes. A floor lamp will work wonders in making the space look cosy and comfortable and you could really rev the space up a notch with a designer chandelier to make your office look super indulgent and gorgeous.
Adding a couple of little creature comforts or decorative frills, such as photographs, mirrors, candles and plants can complete your office space and ensure it's a place you enjoy spending time in. A place where you can feel happy, relaxed and ready to take on the day ahead.
