Designing Your Home Office Or Workspace

When you can no longer focus on your work sitting around the kitchen table, it’s time to get yourself a real home office or workspace to help optimize your work in a pleasant environment.

It doesn’t matter if your home office is a big, spacious room or a single desk at the edge of the living room. It doesn’t matter if you work from home full time or just need that special corner for occasional work. In order to be as productive as possible you need a pleasant and carefully-planned environment. Feel free to steal these ideas for a particularly perfect workspace.

Plan ahead and think about your needs

Before you start moving furniture and painting walls, sit down and make a list of everything you need for an optimal workspace. Are you going to spend hours there, day in and day out? Do you only need a computer and keyboard? Do you need additional space for documents and stationery? Maybe you need glue and scissors? Write down your answers so you can focus on your needs and create a workspace that works for you.
Once you have your list, start looking for inspiration. Inspiration can be found anywhere – in magazines, friends’ homes, and of course, online. Start by browsing websites and photo-based apps like Pinterest or Instagram, which will make your search much easier. After all that planning and envisioning what you want your room to look like, you’re finally ready to start redecorating.
