Top Tips for a Productive Home Office

A Space so Good You'll Actually Like Work Again

Creating a productive home office can be challenging, but with the right styling, you can make your workspace functional, stylish, and comfortable. Here are some of our top tips for styling a productive home office:

Choose the right location:

It's essential to choose a location for your home office that is quiet and away from distractions. Consider setting up your workspace in a separate room or in a corner of your living area.

Invest in a comfortable chair:

You'll be spending a lot of time sitting in your chair, so it's crucial to invest in a comfortable and ergonomic chair. A chair with good lumbar support will help reduce back pain and improve your posture.

Optimize your lighting:

Proper lighting is critical for a productive workspace. Natural light is ideal, so try to position your desk near a window. Additionally, invest in a good desk lamp to provide task lighting for reading and writing.

Keep it organized:

A cluttered workspace can be distracting and overwhelming. Keep your desk organized by using a filing system, desk organizers, and storage solutions.

Use color wisely:

Color can have a significant impact on your mood and productivity. Consider using a color scheme that promotes focus and creativity, such as shades of blue or green.

Add some greenery:

Plants can improve air quality, reduce stress, and increase productivity. Consider adding some greenery to your workspace, such as

a potted plant or a small vase of flowers. Head over to our plant blog for some easy care plants.

Personalize your space:

Adding personal touches to your workspace can make it feel more inviting and comfortable. Hang some artwork or photos on the walls, or add a favorite book to your desk. Now that so many of our jobs are remote, consider your backdrop on your screen! Display some of your favorite art pieces or shelves with books! You don't want to make it too distracting with too many personal photos as that will distract from your meeting!

Reduce distractions:

Set up your workspace to minimize distractions. Consider using noise-canceling headphones, turning off your phone, and using apps to block distracting websites.

In conclusion, styling a productive home office is about creating a space that is comfortable, organized, and free of distractions.


By following these tips, you can design a workspace that promotes focus, productivity, and creativity.
