Want to create a home office to call your own? Before getting started you’ll want to take into consideration functionality as well as aesthetics. We’ve got some design tips to help you get started!

Location Is Key

No Spare Room? No problem. Find a small nook in your home to make into your work from your home office. All you need is a desk and a chair. 
Don’t forget that natural light is your best friend! Make sure the area you pick has enough natural light flowing in. You’ll want to avoid any glare on your device screens as well. This way you can continue to be productive without straining your eyes.


Be sure to figure out how much storage you’ll need before you start planning. Instead of adding filing cabinets, maybe you could add shelves for a more stylish approach.


If you sit for long periods during the workday, then you’ll want a comfortable chair. Your desk should also have enough room for the devices you need such as your computer and printer.

Pick The Perfect Color 

This is the fun part! Pick a color that will get in a productive mindset for work. Research shows that orange stimulates concentration and boosts creativity! The colors white and purple tend to improve motivation. What color would you choose?
