Seasonal Style 7: In Your Home Office
As more and more people work from home these days, and maybe you are one of them, you will then know that having your home office is important. Be it in a small space of a larger room or actually having a room that is dedicated to the use of an office, you want to make sure that the style you have reflects your personality.
Whilst it might be that you don't actually have the need for a well thought out style of office environment, once you have made the effort to personalise your workspace, it will often have the effect of you feeling a lot easier when you are working in this space and contrary to what you might think, adding a little bit of style and remodelling to your home office will not come at a cost that is hard on the pocket!
Just as you are concerned when you come to decorate and choose a style for your living room or bedroom, then this is exactly the same when you come to the styling of your home office. If indeed your living depends from you working at home than having an environment around you that is pleasing, will often lead to you being more productive and creative in your specific area of work.
In fact with a little bit of thought and imagination, you should be able to come up with a plan within a short space of time. If you are on a budget when you are designing your home office, you might like to make a blueprint of the actual space you have, measure the room and make a note of where the door is and also the windows.
Normally most offices, and that includes home offices, are fairly formal places, and this is often reflected in the furniture and other items in the room. This of course includes other furnishings and if you are on a budget when styling your home office, there is perhaps nothing more apt than installing cheap Roman blinds at the windows.
The addition of ready made blinds will make sure that you home office keeps a formal, but friendly look to the room, whilst at the same time blending in with whatever other styling you have carried out. To further enhance the informal, yet 'this is my work space' defined, especially if your home office is a shared space in a part of another room, office rugs will help you step from one 'role' to another!
