Gone are the times when all employees were rushing to work every morning. Nowadays more and more people work from the comfort of their own home and this is why they need a properly decorated home office. This is usually done by remodeling or converting one of the available rooms in the house.
While it is important to have nice colors in your office, try to avoid having your walls with wallpapers in many different colors. Afterall, this is your place of work, and you don’t need major distractions from your task. Also you don’t want your furniture in all sorts of colors, such as green or red. The best colors that work are the traditional brown or black, or for a more modern touch, go with white. White is very fashionable nowadays anyway.
If you don’t want to be in a dry office, add a few plants in various corners of the room or maybe by the window. You do want to have your office comfortable, nice looking and with a positive ambient surrounding you. While you don’t want to go overboard with Feng Shui decor, do make sure that your room is pleasing to the eye and body. It should be attractive, but at the same time professional.
Have the necessary office furniture, but don’t have too many things, as cramping your office with too many items will make the room feel more like a warehouse instead of a business office. Have a computer desk, a writing desk, one or two chairs, a filing cabinet and some bookshelves. You can also have a desk for your scanner, printer and other office accessories, but you can easily use the computer desk for this if it is large enough. While you need initially one chair, a second one is useful if you intend to have guests in the office.
While adjusting and arranging your office furniture, don’t forget that you need to have comfortable and pleasing working conditions. Of course your office can be very small, depending on the room you have available, but you still need to have plenty of space in the room to walk around without bumping your legs in every furniture. So try to arrange your furniture pieces in a way that makes most sense. You want to have an office that is a place that motivates you to sit there for hours and do your daily tasks.
