Whether you’re working from a makeshift desk in your bedroom, your dining room table, or you’ve got yourself a genuine four-cornered in-home office (lucky you!) now’s the time to have a working from home space that you actually enjoy.
With no busy commute and the addition of homely creature comforts, this is the ideal working scenario! Now's the time to make your office setup one that will keep you focused and inspired. Here we’ve compiled a few home office decoration ideas to put into play.
OFFICE FURNITURE, BUT MAKE IT COMFY
It’s undeniable that comfort is key when it comes to sitting at a desk for long hours at time. Surely we've all attempted to work from bed, however as you might now- that's not always the sturdiest setup.
Your modern home office needs to be both a retreat and a place to get shit done. Consider your chair’s cushioning, legs (wheeled or non-wheeled) and upright posture. This is your throne where you have complete control over the feeling and aesthetic- make it work for you and not against you!
* Tip: Throw on some cosy loungewear (that you didn't roll out of bed in) to add an extra sense of comfort to your day! Check out our collection of Cascade Street apparel, featuring stylish jumpers and tees.
ADD PRIVACY IF POSSIBLE
If you live alone, working from home can be a meditative and focused experience. However, not all of us have the luxury of solitude in our chosen office space. For those who are living with a housemate or partner, distractions can easily get in the way of any productive flow.
If possible, add some barriers like a tall houseplant, curtain or a simple privacy screen. This office decoration idea may seem simple, but you’ll be surprised as to how quickly you begin to feel like you’re in your own office space.
FIND YOURSELF A SUNNY WINDOW AND SET UP SHOP
It’s amazing what a little natural light can do to your mood, comfort and productivity levels. We advise arranging your desk next to a window that lets the sunlight soak in. Keep heavy window treatments to a minimum or consider light sheer curtains if the light interferes with any digital screens you’re using.
CHOOSE A SOOTHING SCENT
Don’t underestimate the power of a scent, especially when it comes to an office. You can essentially trick your brain into differentiating work like from home life by incorporating a fragrance that will stimulate your brain to recognise that it’s work time. Think about trying an oil diffuser or candle as part of your morning routine, before checking any emails.
DECORATE YOUR OFFICE WALLS WITH ART
Office interior design doesn’t need to be complicated. Choosing decorative wall art is an easy technique that allows you to enhance your office space aesthetic without renovating or remodelling. Even better, opt for affordable wall art to elevate your space without blowing your bank account. For affordable home office decor ideas, check out our collection of large wall art.
REPLACE CO-WORKERS WITH HOUSE PLANTS
Adding plants to your space can add a vibe of tranquility and give you a sense of connection with nature. Plus, they can assist with filtering the air and creating a sense of privacy. You might also enjoy adding the simple task of watering the plants to your daily routine.
GET CREATIVE AND ADD SOME PERSONAL FLAIR
When creating a home office space, anything goes! Your styling and decorating approach is completely up to you and should make you actually want to go to work each morning. This might mean adding decorative ceramics, a jar of quirky pens, or a stack of your favourite magazines to your desk. Use this opportunity to create a beautiful space that will suit your needs and evoke bliss.
