Top Home Office Ideas to Embrace in 2019

Whether you’re running your own business or occasionally work from home, we all want to make 2019 our best and most productive year yet. Here are five great ideas to transform your home office space this year.

Side by side

Invest in one long desk and make a workspace fit for two! This is a great solution if both you and your partner work from home, or you want to be productive while your kids are doing their homework. Working alongside another person, even from your own home, can help you to be productive and focused.

There are also a ton of double desks available that can easily fit into corners, so you won’t have any trouble finding the perfect furniture for the space you have available. With two designated desk spots, you won’t have to worry about moving or adjusting your personal items after someone else has been there.

Light it right

No matter what room of the house your desk is in, you’ll want to invest in mood lighting. Lighting control systems make rooms ideal for any activity, whether it’s watching a video, reading a book, or writing out some emails.

Custom Controls is a company that specialises in Crestron home automation systems and can easily set up your ideal lighting situation. They also offer bespoke home cinema installations if you want to take care of two things at once!

Divide it up

If you don’t have a designated room for your office, you can get creative and carve out your own little space in a bedroom or living area. Room dividers are available at affordable prices and can close off the area for a little bit of privacy. If you’re prone to distractions, it’s definitely worth purchasing one of these!

If you want to get serious about dividing a room, you can even install some movable folding partition walls.

A view of the world

Having trouble staying inspired during the workday? Keep the motivation going and place your desk in front of a window. This works best if the window faces a garden with lots of plants, but a blue sky is great too.

Even better, the natural light from the window will keep your brain fresh and alert. You’ll also avoid getting glare on your computer or laptop screen by having them behind the window rather than facing it.

Try a funky wallpaper

If you’re doing work in a creative field, the last thing you want is a dull and drab environment. Another way to make your home office an inspiring place to be is with some vibrant, interesting wallpaper.

Having a funky accent wall right by you can boost your energy and have you eager to get your work day started!
