With work from home numbers on the rise, home offices are getting more use than ever before. If your space could use a little sprucing up, read on for a few tips and tricks for a DIY home office upgrade.
Arrange your desk so that you’re near a window. You’ll be able to take advantage of natural sunlight and angle your desk to reduce the glare on your computer screen. Remember to look out the window every few minutes to reduce eye strain from your computer screen.
Lighten Up Your Space
Light color palettes can make a small space appear larger. Pastels, neutrals and light colors are all great choices. Extend the palette into an easy-to-install laminate flooring.
You’ll be spending a lot of time in your home office, so use one wall to hang paintings from your favorite artist or photographs that you find pleasing. If you prefer, paint an accent wall to give your room depth and dimension.
Add Luxury Lighting
Elevate your office with chandeliers or lamps with crystal shades.
Bring some greenery into your space. Houseplants can purify air, reduce stress, and improve overall well-being. No room for potted plants? Frame some botanical prints to add to your décor.
Add a Pop of Color
Both blue and green are said to inspire creativity, so use pops of one of these versatile colors in your office. Whether you paint storage drawers blue or put down a green throw rug, be judicious and don’t overdo it. Too many bright touches can be overwhelming.
Every home office needs adequate storage. Depending on the size of your space, consider installing functional shelving. Rather than using shelves to house your decorative items, ensure that they can handle the weight of some of your books.
Take Out the Trash
If you end up putting down new flooring or buying new furniture, you’ll need to get rid of the old stuff. A 12 or 15-yard dumpster is usually the right size for some old furniture, flooring, and other discarded items. Call 866-649-OAKS to rent a dumpster today!
