Home Office Interior Design Advice from Ellecor
Whether you work exclusively from home, you are studying for your degree, or you just have some days where you don’t get everything wrapped up at the office, it’s nice to have a space in your home where you can focus and get things done. It’s difficult to work out in the more public areas because they are so full of distractions. If you ever need to work at home, it is essential to create an office space that facilitates productivity.
To achieve this, you need to take the proper steps. Fortunately for you, we’ve prepared a blog outlining some of the interior design must-haves for a beautiful yet useful home office. Read on to discover our tips!
Let In Some Natural Light
It is so much more comfortable to work in natural light. If you have the option, choose to design your office space in a room that has a lot of windows. Position your desk near the window so that when the sun is out, it floods your desk with pleasing, natural light.
For dreary days and those time when you’re burning the midnight oil, make sure that you invest in quality interior lighting. Don’t use anything too harsh or fluorescent. Invest in both a more substantial floor lamp and a desk lamp. Choose dimmable light fixtures for the perfect light level when you are working. You don’t want to strain your eyes!
Comfort Is Key
While you want the office space to be functional, you don’t want it to be so rigid and stuffy that you hate spending time there. Invest in furniture that is comfortable. A chair that has excellent support for your back will ensure that you are able to sit and focus while you work.
Also, consider creating a comfortable reading space if your job requires a lot of reading. Buy a soft, cushioned armchair, an accent table, and a cozy rug. Make sure your reading space has a convenient lamp as well!

Function Is More Important Than Form
Of course, you want your office to look incredible and be a space that inspires you. However, make sure that you don’t get so carried away with quirky design that your office ceases to be functional! Make sure that each piece of furniture is well-designed for whatever activity it is intended for. Interior design isn’t just about aesthetics, it is about creating a useful space that you can really enjoy living in!
Make Sure Your Space is Organized
This is of the utmost importance. A cluttered space makes for a cluttered mind. Set yourself up for success by installing furniture and decor pieces that facilitate storage and organization. Make sure that your office space has bookshelves. Bookshelves will add to the aesthetic value of the area and give you a place to store important folders, books, papers, etc. It is also a great place to display the distinctive decor of your choice.
Also, no office is complete without a file cabinet. Despite what you might think, a file cabinet doesn’t have to be a big, metal block. There are a lot of stylish and subtle decorative options to choose from.

Incorporate Some Greenery
Placing a few plants in your office space will improve the air quality as well as your mood. Do your research and find out which plants are meant to detoxify the air and make sure to place some of those around the room. You don’t have to make it a jungle, but a few carefully placed plant friends will help make your office experience more enjoyable!
