Designing your home office

No-one will be insisting that you sit on an old, uncomfortable chair in surroundings you loathe. It’s your office, you’re the boss, so why not design the very best office space you can? Moreover, the difference between a fantastic home office and a dull, uncomfortable home office is not about money, but about imagination and some straight thinking.

Whatever you do, don’t just place a desk next to the power-point, plonk a PC on top and slide in a chair. There is so much more you can achieve with well-thought through colour schemes and home office furniture.

home office design


Your home office needs to be laid out in a professional manner. It needs to be comfortable enough to be able to spend many hours each day in. It needs to be accessible, and so do the items that are frequently used in your office, whether they are books, files, printer or scanner. It also needs to be distinct from all the other rooms in your house, as it acts as a demarcation of activities.

Is there any point of replicating your old work office? Of course not. As well as being functional, your home office ought to be fun – somewhere you like coming into each day.

Take a look at some of the areas of home office design that we think are fairly important:

Decorating a home office

Decorating a home office to suit your style and work habits is so important. Home office decoration should be done professionally and with comfort in mind.

Home office colour schemes

Whilst the equipment and furniture in your home workspace are very important, your home office colour scheme is just as important because it can have such an impact on your mood and productivity.

Home office furniture

You'll work much better with home office furniture that looks good and does its job well in terms of functionality and comfort. Working from home should be a pleasure!

Home office lighting

Home office lighting is an important consideration when you work from home. There is no reason not have well-designed and functional lighting to suit your home office layout.
