Your home office deserves to look like part of your home. It should be a space you actually want to spend time in. Not just to check off your list, but because it’s your oasis of productivity. So, how do you get your home office to more closely resemble this enticing desk? Start with the basics. Figure out what your true needs are; Do you have a comfortable chair? The right lamp? Enough storage?

How about the location? Is it truly the best place for you to be productive? Do you need to be closer or further away from central living areas? It’s often better to find a new location, even if it’s the corner of your guest bedroom than to try to share a space (like a dining room table).

When your choosing the furniture for your space, think about the details. What are you going to do about all those cords, does the piece you’re selecting help? Is the surface durable enough for the occasional spill? If you computer has a tower, will it fit under the desk? And, what about all those piles that need to become files- where are those going to go???

Finally, what’s your style? Do you want something traditional or modern? Colorful brights or soothing pastels? What are you going to do to make it yours? Maybe photos? Will you frame them or perhaps add a decorative bulletin board? What accents will make this space feel good to you? A mirror, flowers, or a pretty lamp perhaps?
