505 Home Office Ideas

A home office is a must-have in the age of flexible working arrangements. Traditionally, a library or a reading room served the purpose of providing an exclusive enclave for work and study. With the rise of remote work teams and wireless technology, a home office has now become a necessity rather than a luxury.

Whether you run your own small business or simply need a demarcated area to sort out monthly bills, bear in mind that a dedicated space need not necessarily equate a dedicated room. Your home office can be anywhere in the house, as long as it works for your lifestyle and is a place where you can quickly scale into tip-top productivity. That would mean different things for different people: a converted garden shed works just as well as a study corner in the den.

The common denominator for all functional home offices is that they all have great storage options. One tip here is to think in terms of shapes and sizes. You will have flat and wide items such as papers and folders so put in place some shelves with bookends or a filing cabinet. For small items like stationery, corral them in tray organizers neatly placed in drawers. Larger odd-shaped items could find their home in wicker or cardboard boxes that line open shelves or closed cabinets.

The walls are also a great place to peg your storage solutions. Make your wall a giant black, white, or cork bulletin board – whatever suits your home office design. If you have clients coming to home office, you might want to stick to a design style that looks more professional. A neutral color palette with natural materials such as timber will give you the established look you desire, unless you work in a creative services industry, in which high-gloss neon finishes may not look out of place.
