A home office is one of the most exciting spaces to design! Whether you want a home office that is serene and set for focus or you want a space that is energizing and inspiring, it can be done through design. Your home office should be one thing above all; it should be a reflection of you. This is a place where you plan, dream and make things happen, so you want it to be a space you genuinely love spending time in! There are many factors to consider when creating a home office design. Some of the considerations may be the purpose of the space, desk surface needed, office supply storage, seating, etc. When thinking of home office design ideas, it can be as simple as thinking about what colors inspire you, to what piece of art you won’t get sick of looking at every day! There are many things to think about, and a home office is a highly personable space. When looking at home office layout ideas, you may notice there are many types of home offices. Some homes have whole spaces just dedicated to a home office, home offices that double as guest bedrooms, and a lot of home offices that live within other rooms of the house! Whether it’s a whole room that is just for working from home, or you have a quaint nook in the living room, make sure you maximize your working space, have comfortable seating, and create a space that is efficient to how you’ll operate in it.  Just like any other room in the house, your home office design style can be anything you desire!

Your home office should inspire you, make you excited to work, and be a space that is all you! Some factors to consider when deciding on furniture and style for your home office range from figuring what desk bests serve your working needs, how long you’ll be seated (you’ll want a comfortable but stylish chair!), and what can you surround yourself with that brings focus but motivation too.

If you want to reinvent your home office space to optimize efficiencies, you may want to pair the layout down to a few fundamental pieces. We stuck with a simple desk, a comfy and practical chair, and some closed storage in this space. Now we have everything neatly organized and easy to find with no unnecessary knick-knacks cluttering the room (or our minds). Just make sure that when you go this minimal to pick pieces with strong silhouettes to keep things from feeling boring.
