Whether you’ve been working from home for decades, or adjusted to the home office life over the last two years, you deserve a space that is not only functional, but cozy and comfortable! After all, you spend hours in a home office, so why not create a space that makes work more enjoyable?
5 Ways to Create a Cozy Home Office
Tips to Make Your Home Office Comfortable
Let In Natural Light
Numerous studies have shown natural light can improve your mood and productivity. Natural light helps regulate the body’s natural circadian rhythms (sleep-wake schedules) and offers a clear start and stop to your workday.
Sun starting to set? Time to call it a day. Having a clear boundary between work and home life is important when you work at home.
Don't Skimp on Your Chair
We know it’s tempting to save money here and there, especially if you are furnishing your home office for the first time. Though we fully support decorating on a budget, cutting corners on a comfortable desk chair can be a pain – in your back – in the long run. Choose an ergonomic chair that is designed for long hours of sitting and working.
Add a Few of Your Favorite Things
One of the advantages of having a home office is being able to decorate it any way you want! You aren’t tied into corporate posters or plain, mass-produced wall decor.
Do you love that crazy print you found at a yard sale for $7? Let it shine in your office space! If you have small children, decorate a wall with their latest art masterpieces. Your home office should be all about your personal style and favorite things!
Ahhh, nothing brightens up a room like an accent wall with a green hue! Because green is found in nature, it provides a sense of calm and peace to a space, even a small home office. Not a huge fan of bold green paint? Opt instead for a few house plants to get your dose of green! Plants also help to clean the air – bonus!
Organize, Organize, Organize
Home office spaces tend to be on the smaller side, and unlike formal office buildings, storage can be somewhat limited. A messy space can make you feel stressed and anxious, so do your best to keep things organized and clutter-free.
Vertical storage and floating shelves are two tricks to maximize storage space. Have lots on your to-do list? Rather than using dozens of sticky notes, invest in a white board or a cork board and keep your important notes front and center in a specific location.
Your home office is likely one of the most used rooms in the house, at least during the work week! Give it some time and attention to create a warm, inviting, and functional workspace.
