There is plenty of focus and attention given to home decor and design. Think about how many people you have come across that are in the process of or have just finished redecorating a room, or multiple rooms in their house. It's common to tackle the kitchen, dining room, living room, and bedroom but as an interior design expert, one area I'm starting to see get a lot more attention is the home office.
A home office is something that wasn't really a big deal just a decade ago. Today, more and more employers are moving towards flexible hours and telecommuting, not to mention the fact that there are more jobs people can do from home. That has created this need for a functional and practical home office. At the same time, as an interior design expert, I'm finding that homeowners don't just want function - they also want style. Just because you work from home, it doesn't mean your workspace can't be sexy!
So, if you're looking to set up a stylish, sexy, yet practical home office, then here are some fabulous tips you can use.
When you think about the most important pieces in a home office, the desk is usually the top of the list. Let's face it, it's pretty hard to get work done if you don't have a place to sit. With that said, a desk is your first opportunity to impart a little style and flair into your room. Sure, it needs to be comfortable, but something like the Large Colonial Reclaimed Pine Partners Desk acts as a statement piece at the same time.
You will have the space you need in order to get your work done, yet it also adds interest and style to the room. It screams style and class, plus it will make you feel like the boss while you work! It can act as that kicking off piece for the other design elements and choices you make.
Luxury Office Chair
Now since you will be spending a large portion of your day in your home office, you obviously want to be sure that your office chair is comfortable. People tend to prefer chairs on wheels, so they can move about with ease, but that doesn't mean you need to settle for the run-of-the-mill non-descript office chair.
Take, for example, this Luxury Office Chair that looks more like a dining room chair on wheels. It has personality, style, and interest and doesn't scream "typical". It can work with a wide variety of desk styles and help your office to feel more professional and inviting.
Retro Steampunk Vintage Copper Adjustable Desk Lamp
Another area that you can really inject some style into the room is with your lighting choices. Lighting is obviously important when you're trying to get your work done, which is why relying on one single overhead light isn't ideal.
Instead, mix things up and make use of task lighting with pieces such as this Retro Steampunk Vintage Copper Adjustable Desk Lamp. With this lamp, you'll be able to move it around, so it is directed exactly where you need it, yet it's got a very stylish vibe. You could even carry this retro vibe into other accessories on your desk, and with wall art. I absolutely love this copper desk lamp. Copper is such a warm, sexy metal, so it will add that special something to your workspace.
These tips show that just because you need to create a practical office space, it doesn't mean it can't be stylish at the same time. Go on, unleash your inner designer and create a Man Men vibe!
