Get inspired and create a small home office that is sure to leave you pumped and energized all day. There’s no need to spend countless hours on renovations and remodeling projects to transform your small home office into the perfect workspace. With these quick tips, you can make a big statement in a small space with simple ideas that are sure to take your daily “remote work” game from mundane to motivated in no time at all.
- The Perfect Chair – Comfort goes a long way
Although it may be tempting to take the chair from the dining room table, don’t do it! Instead, you should invest in a chair that can accommodate prolonged use and sitting.
- Shelving – Use your walls
Just look at those bare walls, they’re just screaming for a pair of floating shelves. If putting holes into the walls isn’t your thing, placing a tall but thin bookshelf or incorporating a built-in shelving unit will work just fine.
- Paint Color – Less is more
When considering paint colors, remember that light-colored walls will create a feeling of openness, but if your visual palette prefers brighter colors, try adding an accent wall for a pop of color.
- Personalize It! – A picture says a thousand words
Don’t shy away from using family and vacation photos, or quotes that can bring a unique and personal touch to a small space.
- Organization – De-clutter and refocus
Dedicating a space for files, books, etc., will simplify your life and will help with your productivity. Think storage cubes and bins.
- Nature – Bringing the outside in
Not only do plants and flowers bring a natural element to any space, but they can also add color and interest to your office. No green thumb, no problem; artificial plants and flowers will get the job done.
- Bright & Airy – Let there be light
If you’re fortunate enough to have a window, use it to your advantage. You can easily let plenty of light into the room by choosing light and airy curtains or blinds.
- Furniture – Functional yet stylish
If it’s modern farmhouse, contemporary or something in-between, choose furniture that is unique to you and expresses your style. Just remember, lighter-colored furniture pieces will make your office feel more spacious, while dark furniture pieces will add visual weight to the room.
