Designing Your Sleek Home Office

Designing Your Sleek Home Office

Many homeowners have trouble designing a home office that is comfortable and inspiring to work in. The designers at the renowned Calgary furniture store, Revolve Furnishings,  can help you transform your home office into a sleek, yet functional, workspace.

Using a mixture of light and bright colours will make your home office feel open. If you meet with clients, the light colours will also make them feel more comfortable. We suggest a sleek, white office desk and matching desk chair. You can bring in more white with bookcases and small accent tables. You should throw a bright colour into the mix too, like orange, pink, bright green or light blue. You can add this colour into the room with pillows, artwork or even by painting an accent wall.

If this is a home workspace where you will not be meeting with clients or coworkers, consider facing your desk against a window for inspiration. Natural light will also improve your mood and contribute to more productivity.

Your modern home office should also reflect your personality in the room. You can show off your personality in a way that’s chic instead of cheesy. For example, if you love to play tennis, look for cool black and white photographs of vintage tennis rackets. These black and white photographs will look great framed on your colourful accent wall! The same ideas can be used for collections. If you have a collection of something you’re proud of, show it off in unique wall photographs instead of having the entire collection in your office. The bottom line is that you office should be a comfortable space that represents you and gives you inspiration to do your best work.

A Young Buyers Guide to Buying Furniture

April 04, 2019

Furniture shopping is an exciting milestone for a young adult.

While hand-me-downs have a special sentimental value, there are not a lot of things that compare to the feeling of buying YOUR first couch, chair, or dining room table.

But once the excitement calms down and you start turning over the price tags, the activity can become daunting. As a young adult, we have been raised in a very “fast” culture, but furniture shopping takes time.
