Invest in Storage

It’s super easy to have a home office that doubles as a place to dump stuff, from junk mail to your car keys, the last drink you were holding, wallet, calculator, kleenex, candles, snacks, and more. Before you know it, your desk is filled with stuff to the point you can’t find anything. Subconsciously, your mind is freaking out because of all the clutter. By investing in storage for your home office setup, you’ll be able to maintain focus and thereby productivity, as well as have a relaxing place to work in. Some ideas include using vertical storage as well as horizontal, installing floating shelves, and investing in baskets designated for your paperwork.

Choose Vibrancy

Your work from home office does not have to be a dull and drab place full of stacks of file folders and blank walls. Instead, hang up items that remind you why you work so hard in the first place to both inspire you and motivate you to keep on keeping on. Some ideas include pendants, garlands, vibrant party strings, colorful trays, beautiful photographs, and patterned curtains. Add in a bright throw pillow for your office chair, and you’ve added spice to your work life. Call Daniels Design & Remodeling in Fairfax for more home office remodeling ideas today! 

Combine Office and Playroom

Many parents are now working from home thanks to COVID-19, and many are staying home and loving it! That being said, there are now babies and tots to contend with while you’re on a conference call, trying to type an important email, or working on a presentation. One great way to contain your children and keep an eye on them while you get work done is to add a playroom to your home office setup. Whether this simply means adding a toy box in the corner, hauling in a train table, or having a comfy place and books around for your kids to read, having your small children nearby offers peace of mind and allows you to get your work done in a timely fashion.

Lose the Cords

Cord clutter is just that — clutter. Studies have shown that clutter inhibits our work and adds stress to our day because of the items lingering around us. Plus, cords everywhere just look downright ugly. You can do a little finagling that will go a long way in creating a beautiful office space minus cord clutter. You can cut a hole in the back of a box to string cords through. You can mount your power strip in an out-of-the-way location. Or, try just tying your cords together with a zip tie or pretty string. You’ll be surprised how this simple move creates simplicity in your home office setup. Our Northern Virginia remodeling company has many ways to remodel your home office space and make it beautiful.

Make it Cozy

Admittedly, it can be hard to get out of the bed in the morning, especially if you know that you have a long day of work ahead. However, by making your home office setup cozy, it will be a lot easier to get your day started with a bang. Perhaps you add in a coffee bar, complete with coffee maker, condiments, and a mini-fridge to hold your cream. You can place a throw rug underneath your seating area to keep the floors warm during the cold winter months. Or, perhaps you have a comfortable chair in the corner with your favorite blanket and a book waiting for your breaks. Decide what comfort items you need and love, and add them to your home office setup.

Make it You

Ultimately, you want your office space to speak to you. You want to be able to walk in when you’re ready to work and have your office space invite you in with open arms, and then embrace you throughout your day. Work can be stressful enough, but with the right home office setup and decor, you can minimize stress and make your work days pass by like a light summer breeze that blows through your hair. Whether you love plant life and want a shelf full of house plants, or you have an entire wall of your kids’ artwork or photos of your fur babies, make your work from home office remodel all about you.
