To create a home office that invites you to enter it, comforts and relaxes you, and encourages creativity, here are some suggestions.
Make it a room of your “favorite things.”
A home office must be functional, certainly, but it also needs to reflect something special about you - displaying your hobby or craft works, a collection of favorite art pieces or interesting things you’ve gathered while on vacations or other travels. Make your home office as comfortable as your favorite room in your home, and your home office may become just that - your favorite room!
Spice up functionality.
You know you need space to store files, to work on your computer, to organize projects. However, you can use the opportunity of a home office to expand your creativity by buying used items such as file cabinets, desks, tables, and spruce them up with paint, refinishing touches, or covering them with colorful fabrics.
