Having a home office means you want to get stuff done, right? By personalising your work or study space into an area you love, you’ll be amazed by how productive you’ll become. Read on to find out how to create the home office of your dreams!
Make Your Desk The Centrepiece
Your home office doesn’t have to be a stock-standard working space. Make your desk the centrepiece of the room by up cycling an old dining table or dresser with a lick of paint and new drawer handles.
After a minimalist look? A simple glass-top table is the perfect option for you. Or if you’re after a traditional ‘Oxford-style’ workspace, an oak or heavy wood desk is the way to go.
Choose A Comfy Chair
Ghost chairs may be all the rage, but will putting one in your home office really encourage you to sit down? Choose a simple, comfortable chair that will force you to sit back, relax and get into the zone.
If you prefer to stand while you work, an ergonomic desk is a great option!

Jazz Up The Room With Stylish Wallpaper
We know what you’re thinking—wallpaper, really? Well, you’ll be happy to know that wallpaper has come a long way since the paisley floral designs of the 60s.
Instantly change the feel of your home office with a modern wallpaper, such as timber, brick or a landscape design—the options are endless.
Get Crafty With Your Storage
There’s no denying a desk packed full of drawers is very useful, but it doesn’t exactly scream style. We have a way to add both style and functionality to your home office.
Invest in 2 old wooden ladders, sand them back and add a coat of paint to match your theme (or leave them raw for a rustic look). Attach the ladders together so they form a triangle and place slats of wood, steel or large tiles to create shelves on each rung. Make sure they’re securely attached before placing them in your room as a stylish storage option!
Light It Up!
If you have a simple home office and want to add a pretty feature on a budget, a nice desk lamp or over-sized corner lamp is both a functional and decorative option. Pick out something that will provide good lighting, as well as being the focal point — this will make your lamp the highlight of the room (no pun intended).
