Written by Posted On Friday, 14 February 2014 05:29

The modern way of doing business allows more and more people to work from the comfort of their homes. The lack of space for an office in your home opens the door to many ideas of decorating and rearranging the desired corner that will serve for all your professional obligations.

All you need is a small corner in your home. Add a work table, and a couple of shelves. If you have the space and materials needed, you can even turn a whole room of your home into a quiet, secluded office.

In a really simple way, with only a few steps to follow, you can create a place for yourself where you can get some isolation from other tenants or family members, and do your work in peace and quiet.

Seeing as how you will be spending a lot of time in this room or corner it is important to make it as cozy and comfortable as you can and most importantly, increase your work productivity. With only a few details, you can completely refresh and reorganize your work space so that it suits your needs.

So, for all of you who wish to work from home but don’t have their own office, here are some helpful suggestions:

Wood makes a comeback

Full dark wood was once unavoidable in all offices, not just the ones in homes. Later, it was shadowed by minimalistic style with metal details and elements. These days, wood is making a comeback, but not in its natural color. No, the latest trend in home offices is white wood.

White, combined with pastel colors such as mint green, gentle pink, and lavender, creates a full visual effect, while soft colors affect your mood and productivity in a positive way.

Small changes matter

Hang a picture on your wall or a retro poster with a motivational message. Place a vase with nice gentle flowers and a scented candle in the corner of your desk. The pleasant smells will reboot your energy during a hard working day.

Don’t be afraid to make small changes such as adding upholstery, maybe covering your seat with wool, or adding a new rug. You will see the difference immediately.

Memo Board

The key to a successful business, besides hard work, is good organization. In order to be able to do everything on time, replace sticky notes on the wall and computer with a memo board that you can make yourself.

You can use an old canvas, or Styrofoam pasted with tapestry, newspaper cutouts or decorative paper. If you really want to impress your guests, you can even put the board in a nice frame.

Hang it on the wall, get some pins, pin down your to do list, an inspirational message, maybe a photo or two, and you're done. You can also hang a few family photos to bring a bit of family atmosphere. Photos made with amusing photo booth are also good choice, to make you laught during hard work.

For all those who are not in the mood for a do it yourself decoration project, you can always get good quality materials at your local retailer.
