Home Office Ideas to Inspire Your Creativity

Home Office Ideas to Inspire Your Creativity
  • Opening Intro -

    As more and more jobs are outsourcing and hiring freelance workers, it becomes necessary to have a suitable office in one's home.

    Some people may feel that the dining room table and a laptop are sufficient tools to get the job done, but a home office that is nicely decorated, well lit and contains the proper furniture can work wonders for boosting your productivity.

-------------------------------------

As a writer, I have found that my creativity soars when I have a dedicated workstation and a stimulating environment that is not cluttered or drab.

Perhaps you already have a home office and you need some pointers for sprucing it up. Maybe you don’t have an extra room and you need tips for carving out a space in your home to get your work done. The following home office ideas can make telecommuting more fun and productive.

Lighting the Way

Improper lighting in your home office can negatively impact your productivity and energy levels. Instead of settling for just a small desk lamp, which focuses the light in one area and can cause eye strain, consider using dimmers or controlling the intensity of the light with lamps at varying heights.

Furniture that Fits

When one sits at a desk for eight or nine hours a day, it’s a must to invest in furniture that fits your body and helps maintain good posture. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself unable to sit still, and you’ll wind up taking power naps on the sofa throughout the day. A good ergonomic chair can be purchased inexpensively and will give your lower back the support it needs. Additionally, proper armrests and an ergonomic keyboard can save your wrists.

Organization is Key

When I was in school, my teacher always said "A disorganized person will never get an A." This saying also applies in the business world. If you are the type of person who is always misplacing papers and files, your enterprise will suffer. An organizational system doesn’t have to be expensive or clunky. Spice up your office with chic cabinets in bright colors and patterns. Crocheted storage bins give your office a quaint and country feel. Decorative file boxes can help tame the clutter and add a bold look to the area.

Color is a Great Motivator

Since your office is yours to decorate as you please, why not add a splash of color with an accent wall? This can brighten up the decor without overpowering the room. Paintings and framed inspirational posters are another way to spruce up the walls of your home office. At the same time, they give your eyes something powerful and inspired to hone in on as you look up from your computer.

Functionality

If space is an issue in your home office, shelves not only give you more room, but add an attractive element. Buy wall shelves in different colors and sizes. To maximize your space, you can also add a row of hooks on the wall near the shelves. If you don’t have an extra room to spare for a home office, use a divider to partition the living room or dining room. You can even convert a closet to a chic and functional office, as long as you can fit a small desk and chair.

Who says working from home has to be boring and uninspired? A little planning and ingenuity can transform a dull home office into an eye-catching workspace that gets your creative juices flowing.
