We spend so much of our time in the office, surrounded by noise and distractions, that sometimes it is necessary to dedicate a room in our homes for work and productivity. That way, when you have a few hours spare at home to catch up on work or finally start working on that all-important presentation, you can do so in a place that inspires you instead of making you sad.
To get the most from your home office, consider adding these five décor items below. They’ll make your workspace feel like something out of a dream:
1. Desk Lamp
Your home office should be functional as well as beautiful. Considering this is the room in your home where you will need to be the most productive, you need to get the perfect desk lamp to keep you going when you’re burning the midnight oil.
Desk lamps should be as stylish as they are functional, which means it is time to ditch the boring one that has been shoved in the corner of the room and replace it with something chic and bold.
2. Wallpaper Chic
The best wallpapers offer a vibrant pop of colour to a space that would otherwise be plain and drab. If you love moody spaces, choose a dark wallpaper that centres the area and brings a focal point to the room.
Your home office should be the perfect retreat for you to escape to and get a little work done, so make sure it speaks volumes to your style personality.
3. Luxury Desk Clock
Time is always of the essence. For hyper-organized people, there isn’t a minute of the working day that goes by that isn’t accurately accounted for. While we have a myriad of ways to keep time these days, from smartphones to watches – there is nothing quite as stylish as a luxury desk clock.
Once you’ve decided on how you want your home office to look, browse around and choose the perfect option to tie the design elements of the room together.
4. Personal Items
Your home office doesn’t need to be a cold and sterile environment. Many studies have shown how working in a beautiful space can improve your mood and boost your productivity levels.
Keep pieces of your home life close by adding framed photos of your loved ones or pets onto the walls or on top of your desk. These will serve as reminders of what and who you are working so hard for. Keep them classy by choosing frames that suit the overall design of the room. Stick to edges in a neutral colour if your office is a tasteful and sophisticated space.
5. Maps or Globes
There is just something so chic about incorporating travel objects into your working environment.
Think of gorgeously stylish prints of old maps or a globe of the world. A world map offers a comprehensive view of your favourite place on Earth. It is useful both from a reference point and for decorative purposes.
It enhances your working environment by offering geographical knowledge, and it serves as a stylish reminder of how diverse our world is.
Your home office should offer you a space for both quiet contemplation and frenzied productivity. The choice should always be yours, so design the office that you’ve always dreamed of – there is no time like the present!
