Having a dedicated workspace at home makes it easier to tune out distractions, plus a well-decorated room can often inspire creativity. Before getting started, consider who will use the space (is it for him, for her, for children?) and how it will be used (do you work a traditional 9 to 5, or are you dedicated to a side project?). We rounded up a myriad of home office ideas to help you maximize space — even if you’re decorating a quiet area to read or a room fit for crafting.
A home office presents the opportunity to showcase your favorite design elements. Go with moody colors, gold finishes and dark woods; minimal with natural woods, sleek lighting and a light color palette; vintage with refurbished cabinetry and elegant artwork. There are endless ways to arrange a functional setup filled with style — whether it’s with built-in storage, removable wallpaper, trendy paint colors, patterned rugs or upcycled furniture. Keep it casual, classic and clean to put your mind at ease, or go for lively patterns and hues that are sure to spark your imagination.
From entire rooms and home basement offices to cozy small nooks in the corner of a living room, you’re sure to find a work-from-home office design idea that pairs well with your style — and will likely do wonders for your productivity and mental health.
