Decorating and organizing your office at home is a lot different that designing an office at work. With so many distractions at home, it’s important to put together a workplace that makes you work efficiently. Organization, comfort, and even the style of decorating can make not only a big difference, but also help you concentrate and bring in the dough! Here are some ingenious tips and tricks you can use to give your home office that New Years makeover it needs:
Try a Daring, Bold Color
Bright colors are known to lift our spirits, so refresh your home office with a juicy hue like this peachy pink shade. If you are scared to take the plunge, paint only the back parts of your bookshelf shelves to add an unexpected color that makes all the difference. You’ll soon notice your uplifted mood and you’ll actually be happy to get back to work!
Keep Clutter Out of Sight
If you are like me, I can’t stand the sight of clutter let alone work around a heap of books, scrap paper, and coffee mugs. Clutter is a big distraction and can make you feel lazy, unfocused, and just not in the mood to work. After every workday, do a quick clean up of your office and ensure everything is in order for the next day. If you keep your home office a no-clutter zone and your mind will soon be too.
Create a Welcoming Seating Area
Every home office should have an area where you can invite guests to sit and feel comfortable. If you’ve jam-packed your office with bookshelves, filing cabinets, and storage boxes, it’s time to let some of those go. Even if you don’t have a large enough office to fit a sofa, clear a small space that can fit a pair of arm chairs, a sofa chair, or even a simple bench will work wonders in making your office feel welcoming.

Install Clear Shelving
All designers opt for clear furniture and shelving to make a small space look instantly bigger, brighter, and more airy. Clear glass shelving is the perfect way to keep your books in order, and avoid engulfing and closing up your space with massive shelving. Stainless steel shelving, galvanised shelving, lacquered shelves, or shelves painted in a metallic finish tend to also have the same invisible effect.
Hang a Bold Piece of Artwork
An amazing piece of artwork infused with color is an ingenious way to add energy and inspiration to your office. Opt for a clear lucite desk to make your table look invisible and keep all eyes on your artwork and amazing rug.
