4 Design Tips to Remember When Planning a Home Office

By: Technic

This year, home offices seem like becoming more of a requirement to every home as a significant percentage of the world’s workforce are still stuck at home working due to the pandemic. If this is to become part of the new normal, then you might as well convert one of your home’s spare rooms into a home office or study. Here’s what you need to consider before calling your local home renovation contractor.

1. Selecting the Correct Room with Enough Space

If you have a couple of spare rooms at home, then you’d have no problems selecting the perfect room to turn into a study. Of course, you need a room with just enough space for you to move around and do your work. That depends on your occupation, but make sure your room is designed to make sure you can move about, stand up, and sit back from your desk. If you need to install a few pieces of furniture and equipment, you need to consider that as well.

2. Get a Decent Desk and a Comfortable Seat

The purpose of a home office isn’t just so you have a place where you can dump all your work stuff. Your home office is a place where you can work peacefully and comfortably. In order to do that, you need to buy a decent desk and chair for your study. Don’t be cheap on these things, as you’ll be using them literally every single day. You need something durable and long-lasting while giving you every comfort you need while working. 

3. Storage Space and Shelving

Of course, your home office should have enough storage space and shelving for books, equipment, supplies, and other tools you might need while working. They can come in the form of filing cabinets, cupboards for your files, or shelves for your papers and stationery. Make sure to choose shelves and furniture that are sturdy and made from quality materials. You don’t want any of them suddenly breaking or collapsing while you’re trying to retrieve something from the shelves. You can have some custom cabinetry installed on your desk if you want something that you can quickly access. 

4. Design for Function and Organization

Your desk, shelves, and storage should serve you and not the other way around. Whatever items you need in your home office should help you with your workflow and make sure you can do your work and become productive. Consider your workflow and what items you need at your fingertips before investing in furniture. After that, you should look for pieces that are both beautiful and functional. As much as possible, your home office layout should allow you to get everything you need within your reach. From folders to cabinets and desk organizers, everything should be arranged to address your needs. 


These little tips should help you better conceptualize what your home office needs to look and feel like. If you need to do some renovating, then let your contractor know about these considerations, so they know exactly how to build your home office to your specifications.
