How to create a beautiful and functional work-from-home space

January 25, 2021

Did you know that the aesthetics of our space has the power to impact the way we work? The difference that small decorative details and modern office furniture makes is profound. Now, more than ever, people are working from home as a response to Covid-19 restrictions. We predict that the virtual workspace trend will continue long after the pandemic is over.

Follow this guide to create a beautiful workspace that you’ll be excited to work in, increase your productivity, and get your creative juices flowing!

Modern office desks

Choose a designated work area

While working on the bed or the couch may sound cozy, it’s best to avoid these areas to do work. Otherwise, you’ll begin to associate work with your sofa and bedroom. It will become less relaxing, and you may find yourself having trouble falling asleep at night. Instead, think of the type of space you need to work optimally. We recommend choosing a room with plenty of natural light and away from your relaxation zones to create mental distance.

Set up proper lighting

Interior decorators love using lighting to create ambience and comfort. Layering lighting helps reduce eyestrain while you work and make your space feel cozier. A strategically placed mirror can also help bounce light around the room. If you’re unsure how to layer lighting fixtures, our expert decorators can help.

Invest in a desk and office chair

The type of desk and chair you choose can make a huge difference in productivity and reducing fatigue. Modern office desks can create a powerful statement and adds functionality. The desk is essentially the centrepiece of your office, while the office chair is where you’ll be situated for hours at a time. Be sure to invest in modern office furniture that features ergonomic details and comfort without compromising style and design. A functional workspace that is also pleasing to the eye makes it more pleasant to spend time in.

Don’t forget the little details

What we see can change how we think. Adding in a house plant, decorative details, and art pieces help with a more personalized workspace. Designing the perfect work-from-home space requires a bit of science, interior design knowledge, and self-reflection. Our knowledgeable planners and designers can help you create the type of vibe you’re looking for. We can recommend modern office furniture, bring in specific details, and pull in certain colours to boost creativity and increase focus.
