Adjusting to a New Norm: Home as a New Office


The current pandemic is challenging all spheres of life. It’s changing the way we work, shop, work out, and spend time with our families. There are drastic changes in businesses all over the world, and the fear and uncertainty continue to rise, as we try to adapt to our new realities.

During these days of social distancing, shelter-in-place, and travel bans, office workers are swapping blazers for pajamas, uncomfortable desk chairs for their own couch, and there will undoubtedly be those who will not want to return to the office. Therefore, it will definitely be given more attention to the arrangement of the workplace at home.

The space to work at home no longer will be a desk with a parody on an office chair somewhere in the corner of the living room or under the stairs. Now it will be a dedicated space to work with comfortable furniture. So, let’s see how to accomplish that.


How to Design Inspiring Home Workspace?

If you decide to work from home, you should pick a spot that you don’t need to use for anything else, and ideally, it should be a separate room.

In the first place, choose different materials, find some interesting pieces of furniture. Office space should have a free and dynamic spirit to improve your inspiration. Take advantage of natural light by opening curtains and blinds. Small plants or flowers, as well as wall art, can significantly change the mood of the space. Pay special attention to the organization of your desk. Add colorful accessories and supplies.

Create a simple but significant workspace that inspires you to be the best version of yourself.

Have You Found Your Working Corner?

It’s not always possible to have a separate room for your home office. Scan your home for any underutilized corner and use some creativity and a draft design and make it your working corner.

You just need to keep things simple and eliminate as much as you can so that you are only working with just the basic furniture and tools to stay productive. No matter how small your little working corner is, find your space to work will help you with the creativity and production flow.

Lack of Space

Do you live in a small space, like an apartment or condo? Make the most of what you have by adding multi-purpose furniture and decorating minimally. In the first place, identify a space. Create a multi-purpose home office by using a space-saving desk. Maximize your vertical space. Get organized.

No Windows

Have a room with no windows? Don’t you fear! Here are some ways to decorate the space so you can be your most productive. Find the right lighting and paint the walls a neutral color. Add a houseplant or two, and definitely use mirrors. Install curtains.

Balcony Office

The small balcony offers great opportunities for creating space-saving, unique, and bright small home offices. Take advantage of your lovely balcony view by turning it into a productive space.

Take the minimal approach and style it with only the essentials. Add an office chair, some light fixtures, few artworks, and voila—you’ve got yourself a beautiful office space with a view.

Color is Important

Color influences productivity, creativity, and mood at work. But first, keep this in mind: it’s not just the color that makes an impact; the intensity of each is also important. So, regardless of the hue, you opt for in your office design, remember that high intensity will stimulate, while low intensity will soothe.
