Modern Home Office Ideas

A good home office should reflect and support your goals and personality. Working from home means you’re likely to spend the majority of your day within your home office space. You will want this area to be a place you’re proud of & happy to work from.

Here are some of our favourite tips to create a space that will inspire and encourage your best work.


Add Greenery

 

Keep your home office feeling fresh with the addition of some easy to maintain, houseplants.

Did you know that having plants within your home office can help reduce stress, help increase productivity & boost creativity? In addition to this, they clean the air, helping create the perfect working environment.

Optimise Your Space


Organisation is key. Nobody works well in a messy home office, and space can often be at a premium. This means that making the most of the space you have is key. Look to innovative storage solutions and try to think outside the box for ways to make your space work for you. Ensure no space is wasted by ‘thinking vertical’ - look at floor to ceiling shelving to optimise the room you have available.


Feature wall

 

A feature wall is a great way to showcase your personality within your home office. Include frames with your loved ones, work by your favourite artist or inspirational quotes to help motivate and inspire your work.

No sacrifice on style

 

Make sure your home office is as stylish as the rest of the home by embracing a style that works for you. Whether it’s minimalistic, industrial or scandi, whatever your design style, ensure it shines through in this area of the home too. Why not make a bold statement by introducing a flash of colour into your office space?

Invest in technology

 

Keep up to date with new technologies and maintain a sleek, stylish finish to your home office space. Working from home can drastically cut commuting costs, so why not use this money to treat yourself to the latest office gadgets.

 

Let the light in

 

Another tip for a happy home office environment is to allow as much natural light into your space as possible. Studies show that natural light can help increase productivity within a working environment. It’s also a great vitamin D boost to keep your energy levels up, great for maintaining a sense of wellness.

Which blinds for your smart home office?

 

To help create a great working environment, you need to ensure you’re picking the right blinds for your space. Whether you’re looking to filter light, add colour to the office or you want to limit restrictions to your view outside - finding the right blind solution is key. Our favourite styles to incorporate within this space are roller blinds, inclduing flame retardant roller blinds, wooden and vertical blinds both of which are great for flexible light control.
