Room of the Week – Modern green office
This weeks Room of the Week is a smart home office. From the House to Home gallery the room combines good decoration with practical storage to provide a perfect workspace.
The working habits of today means that more and more people are working from home. Whether it is an infrequent occurrence or something you do daily, having a well-ordered and prepared room will ensure you work efficiently and most productively.
When you are choosing fittings for your office a good quality desk is an essential. The Contours Desk from Ligne Roset would be a great choice, especially if your home office has a dual purpose as it is so stylish. The Contours range features a number of other pieces of furniture to help you integrate your office space into any room if needed.
As shown in this Room of the Week it is also essential to provide good storage to allow you to be organised. Simple wall cubes like this can be purchased from Ikea or other high street suppliers. If you cannot find anything suitable it often pays to have them made bespoke to fit the space in your home.
You should always try to include good quality lighting in an office. This is especially important if you will use the room for studying in the evening. The Brooklyn giant floor lamp from Made.com shown below stands 175cm high but is less than £80. It provides not only a great light source but an element of fun for your office.
Work spaces can often be very harsh environments if they are purely functionally. Adding some soft furnishings will soften the room and make it more comfortable. It might be a simple cushion as shown here, or a comfortable chair to help you relax. The Barbican chair from John Lewis shown below adds comfort and colour to any interior.
When choosing the decoration and furnishings for your office do remember to try to keep it interesting. Visual stimulation will also help your brain – you might not want a very busy room but allowing yourself some colour and comfort isn’t a bad thing!
