Creating the Ideal Home Office

Your workspace at home should be your sanctuary - it’s the one place where you can be extremely productive. Whether you are setting up a new home business, or simply making a few lighting or furniture changes to your home office, there are some important things to do:


You will likely be spending many hours in your home office, so deciding where to set up is extremely important. Some of the questions you may want to ask yourself include:

  • What will you be doing in the space?
  • Will external clients be visiting your home office?
  • Are colleagues going to be visiting for collaborative work?
  • Will you be making conference calls?
  • Do you work best in busy environments or quiet ones?
  • What type of equipment is needed for your home office?

REMEMBER: Before you consider what type of furniture or lighting you want to use for your home office, deciding upon the right location is critical.



Excellent lighting in your home office is a MUST for creating a productive environment as a dimly-lit space can often leave you:

  • Feeling drained
  • With eye strain
  • With constant headaches

Try and find a space that has as much natural light as possible. However, if this isn’t possible, consider a unique desk or floor lamp which will add both style and function to your workspace.

REMEMBER: Position the computer monitor so there’s no glare from the window or overhead light.



The importance of finding great furniture, especially a chair, for your home office, cannot be emphasized enough! An ergonomically-correct, comfortable and beautiful chair is essential because when you don’t pay attention to your back, it can take a huge toll on your mood, general health and productivity.

Here are some of the things you may want to consider when selecting an office chair:

  • Seat height/width/depth
  • Lumbar support (lower back support)
  • Seat material
  • Arm-rests
  • Swivel
  • Whether or not it has an adjustable backrest

When you are setting up your home office furniture, make sure to position your desk where you can stare at something more interesting than a blank wall (even if you do love the colour.)

A window’s natural light is ideal, but if you are in a windowless space, consider hanging artwork above the desk, or positioning your chair to face the door.


Forget the typical ‘office beige!’ When you are setting up your personal workspace, you need a colour that gets your work motor humming. For some people, that might mean a bright, cheery colour like orange or lime green.

Others may need a more calming, peaceful shade such as a botanical green or a seafoam blue to perform at their highest. Before painting the walls of your home office, try and see how certain colours affect your mood so you can make the best decision.


Be Modern Furniture Choose The Right Storage

Smart storage is key to managing clutter on a desktop and will ensure that your home office stays orderly and well-styled.

However, many home offices aren’t swimming in square footage, so using the space efficiently is imperative. You may want to consider:

  • Hanging floating shelves on the walls
  • Using vertical file folders on the desk to keep important papers within reach
  • A mug/cup to keep your pencils, pens and other stationary in order
  • A stylish basket/rack to put all your mail, notes and extra papers
  • A bookshelf for books, knickknacks and other odds and ends
