More and more people are working from home and reaping the rewards of home-based business endeavors. Even if you only use your office space for a side-job, the kids’ study space, or a guest room, spruce it up with a few modern amenities that will create a functional, stylish area of your home.
Some must-have fixtures for your modern at-home office include these suggestions:
The Modern Office Desk
The focus of every home office is a modern desk, and there are many stylish options to suit your distinctive work needs. If you prefer a simple desk, without a lot of added storage, the Piper Desk is an elegant option. The sleek navy façade, chrome legs, and crystal drawer-pulls make this desk appealing enough to be a focal point in your office.
If you prefer more storage space, the Bungalow 5 Valentina offers several roomy, lacquered drawers that compliment the glass topped lacquered texture grasscloth finish to address your additional storage needs.
It is important to have enough light in your office since you may spend extended periods of time in this space. Metallic or industrial-inspired lighting gives your home office a modern, contemporary look. Consider using something like the Robert Abbey Bristol Adjustable Floor Easel, which allow you to amply-light a work space or display area for artwork, projects, or documents.
For more storage needs, cubby-style shelving in the office works well and provides quick access to necessary work supplies. For instance, the Bungalow 5- Franki Textured AV Cabinet offers cubbies and drawers, but it does not sacrifice style. The unique chrome- finish hardware gives the cabinet a fresh, modern appeal that will meld nicely with other contemporary office fixtures.
Use a modern rug on your home-office floor for cohesion with your other furnishings and comfort under-foot. The Lakehouse Stripe Khaki/White Indoor/Outdoor Rug is a viable option, offering a neutral toned, floor-covering that is easy-to-care for, too. Made of superheroic polypropylene, this indoor/outdoor rug is perfect for bringing in the other accents of your creative space.
Modernize Your Home Office
Some other tips when making over or modernizing a home office are:
- Segregate and seclude your workspace with some sort of divider, door, or partition for optimal privacy.
- Keep your office space clutter-free to avoid visual distractions when you are trying to work.
- Putting time and effort in your workspace is worthwhile, and it may make you more productive and more apt to spend time in your home office.
A home office is much more than a mere convenience; for many, it is an integral part of their family’s income. Money spent on making your office more convenient, functional, and comfortable is a prudent investment in today’s working climate.
