Creating a workspace at home has become a must in times of Covid. Whether it’s an entire room or a corner , it is important to style it with function in mind to improve your productivity, but also to make sure that it works with your aesthetic and the rest of your home.
Since you are creating an office in your home, it should be strategically placed to have a sense of structure and ensure a healthy balance between work and rest. If possible, we recommend you set your workspace in it’s own room, however, if that’s not possible, and you need to have share a space with another function, our recommendation is keeping your office space out of your bedroom. Mostly to have your bedroom as a mentally relaxing space where you can unwind throughout the day, and by keeping your work space separate from your sleeping space, you’ll be able to separate those two functions much more easily. We also love placing a desk next to a window for a properly illuminated space, to increase your performance, and to enjoy a view while completing your tasks.
Styling your workspace
STEP ONE: PLACE A DESK LAMP.
Add a desk lamp to illuminate your work area. In addition to good ambient light, it is essential to have a direct light source, like a task lamp.
STEP TWO: INVEST IN A GOOD CHAIR
Get a beautiful and ergonomic chair to make sure you are comfortable while working. If you need to choose where to spend the majority of your budget, the chair would be it for us – to ensure you stay comfortable while spending hours at your laptop from your home office.
STEP THREE: ADD THE NATURE ELEMENT.
Refresh your desk with a green element to add a splash of colour, bring life to the vignette and boost your creativity.
STEP FOUR: STACK SOME BOOKS.
Place some books or magazines to flip through for some inspiration, or stack your planner and copybooks to add some height.
STEP FIVE: ADD SOME THOUGHTFUL DETAILS.
Add a bit of character with some meaningful décor pieces, like a family photo, a souvenir, a scented candle, or some stylish office accessories.
STEP SIX: SELECT SOME ARTWORK.
Choose some nice artwork to add inspiration, incorporate your personal touch and add some dimension to the vignette.
