Having an efficient home office is becoming increasingly important. In the age of Covid, some companies have already moved permanently to work from home business models. Whether you need a permanent or temporary home office, it should be efficient and effective! Check out these tips to maximize your space with style and function.

1. Add some color with houseplants. Even one small plant will help add in some color and texture to the space. Don’t have a green thumb? No problem! Even faux plants will provide a convincing look without the hassle of upkeep.

2. Divide the room to create focus. Not every home will have a dedicated room for an office space. Sometimes a guest bedroom or living rooms are acting double duty as an office, and that’s okay! Even if you have to share the space, it’s important to create clear boundaries and keep your work area solely focused on work. You can even create a room divider with stylish organizers such as decorative bins or shelving. 

3. Improve the lighting with color changing bulbs. This is especially important if your office is in a room that doesn’t get an abundance of natural light. It’s important to have sufficient lighting. It’s been proven that softer, warmer lighting can help with creativity while cooler light with shades of blue enhances concentration. Having the ability to change the tone of your lighting may seem like a small change, but it will have a big impact!

4. Utilize wall space for planning instead of trendy artwork. Many people working from home try to make their offices aesthetically pleasing, but it’s important that the space functions well. Hanging a wall board for notes, upcoming projects and all your work needs may be a better choice than opting for artwork. Finding a balance between aesthetics and function is key!

These easy changes can have a large impact on your efficiency and overall well being. Making these savvy changes will take your home office to the next level!
