At Gillian & Co., we want to help you make the best possible use of your space and also help you make that space aesthetically appealing, so you can enjoy spending time there. For those who work from home, one of the most important design elements to get right is the home office. In this article, we will go over three expert tips for effective home office interior design.
- Consider Your Workflow. Our first tip for home office interior design is to consider how you’ll be using the space–that is, what your everyday workflow will actually look like. Where is the best place to put your desk, computer, reading lamp, printer, etc.? What are the most important things to keep within easy reach?
- Remember the “Home” in Home Office. Another piece of advice we have to offer when it comes to home office design is to reject the idea that this space needs to be purely functional and utilitarian. Office beige walls and bare metal shelves are not only ugly to look at, but their dull appearance can also even put a damper on your enjoyment of your work, which in turn will impact your productivity. Remember that this room is still part of your home, so try to make it look and feel homey as well.
- Invest in Storage and Organization. Our third tip for home office interior design is to include plenty of storage space, as well as the right tools to keep it organized (such as drawer subdividers and the like). You need room to store all your business documents and other tools, so don’t skimp on this home office infrastructure.
