Smart Ideas for Your Home Office

Sometimes the home office can become neglected; here are a few ways in which you can bring life back into your office space.

Buy a new desk – if your desk is looking a little tired and rough around the edges then create an instant impact with a new desk. At room4interiors we have a wide selection of desks to choose from and to suit every budget. If you find that you do most of your computer work sitting on the sofa you could always consider a side table specifically designed to be used with laptops.

The little touches – those extra finishings to your home office can make the room or area seem fresh, by adding matching pen pots and box files it will make the area feel uncluttered. There are many varying colours and designs on box files to choose from. These are ideal for those who want to add a splash of colour to their office.

Light up – lighting is very important in an office and sometimes you need to adjust it according to the work you are doing. For those moments when overhead lighting is too harsh, an adjustable desk lamp is perfectly suited to the task. Plus many of these lights come in fantastic colours, so you can accessorise your lamp with your other finishing touches.

Transitional areas

I have a bit of a problem with hallways and other such similar transitional spaces as often times they are the neglected, over looked and very dull. The key I’m thinking is not to treat them like a passage way and do all the things you would do in a normal room. Layer the lighting, think chandeliers, sidelights, wall lights you know the thing. Your hallway sets the tone for the rest of your pad so it’s important to make it as wow as possible. Shelves are fab – the Ikea lacquered ones are genius (they double up as storage). If you layer such a shelf with artwork, mirrors and lighting it will create a super interesting tone and totally up your style ratings.

Being a high traffic area of course flooring needs to be sturdy as it needs to stand up to a lot of foot traffic. That said it doesn’t need to feel boring both Anthropolgie and Habitat have some fabulous rugs that will add instant flair to your lair.
