5 Tips for Designing a the Perfect Home Office


Whether you are a student or a professional, every home can benefit from a home office: that independent work space created for the required and disciplined atmosphere within the home. Whether it is studying for an exam, catching up on work emails, or running a business, a home office should be much more than a basic desk and chair. It should complement the home and still provide a productive work space. At ModSpace.in we provide a wide variety of desks to suit the smaller and even the larger home offices.

Location within the Home: The first step for adding a home office is finalizing the location with the home. A home office is a space where a homeowner will spend many many hours. Therefore, the location should be convenient and aesthetically pleasing. Avoid having a desk stuffed into a spare room or closet. Designate a location which can maximize productivity-whether it is a quiet corner or an action-packed area.

Think Form and Function: In order to best serve its ideal purpose, all items in the home office should serve you. Depending on the workflow and working style, consider the furniture needed that are both functional and attractive. For example, if a home office is being designed as a student's study zone, then the furniture should include an upright, comfortable chair, a wider desk space to spread their books, and maybe even a book shelf. If the home office is supposed to be a more creative space, then have paintbrush holders handy.

Use Some Color & Accessorize: The home office should complement the rest of the home. It should not be a boring space with a desk and blank walls. Give some visual interest by adding some color in the shelving,  pen-holders, or even upholstery for the chair. Personalize the desk or table with essentials such as fun notepads, a decorative dustbin or a colored bulletin board. A home office should be a space of inspiration. Add some colorful paintings or motivational quotes to the walls to keep yourself going.

Lighting (natural and artificial): Ensure the home office has plenty of lighting. Natural light should come to through a window, and there should be a small desk lamp for task lighting to avoids eye strain and headaches and make the space a little more practical for getting work done.

Organize Vertically & Horizontally: Plan the organizational elements efficiently. Often times, home offices are not the largest spaces, and one has to get creative with using space efficiently. Include shelving above the desk, a stacking filer on the table to ensure all items are well organized. One can even get creative with storage underneath the worktop to ensure an efficient use of space.
