How To Make Your Own Office At Home (26 HQ Pics)

Whether home office is designed for running a business or simply a nook for paying bills and organizing daily schedule, we deserve more than desk and a chair stuffed into a spare corner. Here are some tips for creating a charming, practical workspace.

Invest in a great chair. You spend hours parked in your office chair so a beautiful, ergonomically-correct, comfortable seat is worth every dime.


Don’t forget the lamps. Good lighting is essential. Ideally you want as much natural daylight as possible. The exposure can boost your mood and improve your sleep patterns. In times of unfavorable weather or long working nights, it is essential to get some artificial lighting in your workspace. Try a few table lamps, which offer a nice soft glow and interesting design possibilities.


Incorporate something personal. Set up a mini-shrine — some stylish décor details, a piece of framed art, a special photo on your desk could motivate you to create, channel your inner muses, remind you of something positive. Include moments of success, cartoons that makes you laugh, even a scent that makes you happy.

Create some comfy space. A great home office has a nice comfy chair for curling up and a table for your coffee with a great lamp. Add a luxurious throw and a colorful pillow and you’ll want to take thinking breaks.


Add greenery. Even the smallest nature-inspired details have been proven to help relieve stress, calm the mind, and provide a range of other mental benefits.


Organize wisely. Using space efficiently is imperative. If you’re the sort of person who needs to see something to remember it exists, try wall storage: magazine type racks, or hang floating shelves on the walls to get papers and office equipment off the desk, and use vertical file folders on the desk to keep important papers within arm’s reach If you need book cases, get big enough that you don’t need to overstuff, and artful enough that they’ll look great as the backdrop in your video conferences.
