Creating A Home Office

With many people working from home now, sometimes two people in a household, finding a special little spot to set up is more important than ever. An organized functional office will help you to be more focused, productive and enjoy your time spent working from home. It doesn’t necessarily mean a large room dedicated to this sole purpose. Sometimes there just aren’t enough rooms to do that. We wanted to share some inspiring designs to help you create a practical and pretty space no matter what your arrangements are. 

Your dining room as an office 

Design by Lux Decor 

If you do not have a dedicated office but do have a dining room that only gets used for those special occasions than put it to better use by turning it into a home office. The bonus about this is you already have the large working space of a table so 2 people can easily set up here! Add some flowers, books, even a table lamp to get the vibe feeling a bit more office like.

Move the extra chairs out of the room so it doesn’t look like a dining room anymore.

Integrate an office into an existing room

We love this little space because it’s big on style but doesn’t ask for a lot of space. You can try to do this in a living room, dining room, large hallway or even your bedroom. If you already have a little desk then great! If not, you can use any little table you’ve got. This is truly all about the styling. Layers of accessories starting with the variation of wall art to the vases, lamp and a tray holding necessities makes this little home office a perfect and very inviting place to work.  

Adding a little working space to a kids bedroom

A little working station for your kids is definitely convenient right now. All you need is a nice focal point like this gorgeous speckled wallpaper a sleek desk or console and a comfy chair. A painted accent wall would work too. Layer with some art and a pretty vase or jar for colouring pencils and you’re done! 

Carve a nook into your kitchen design

You can always transform a closet into a perfect little office too! This one is tucked away and what’s perfect is you can close the doors when you’re done! The gold and white accents pop beautifully against the dark furniture for a stylish and cozy workspace.
