Work From Home? 3 Interior Design Ideas for Your Home Office

The term "home office" has taken on an entirely different meaning in the past decade. Having a room, or space, in the house where you stuffed a desk, a computer, and some basic home office supplies is nothing new. Your kids did their reports, you paid bills, and the space was occasionally used for catch-up work on weekends. Now that telecommuting and freelance work opportunities are more common, home offices are undergoing amazing transformations. If you need more from your home office space, here are some interior design ideas to make the space professional, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing.



3 Interior Design Ideas for a Home Office Renovation


The first step is determining what design style you are going for. Will you be meeting clients in your office? Do you Skype or video-chat, which provides clients, colleagues, and/or superiors a view of your space? If so, it's even more important to choose a design that matches the image you want to present in the professional world.

Most designs fall into three categories: traditional, modern, or transitional. We'll share examples of all three types.
  1. Traditional. When you think "traditional," think lots of dark polished woods, deep, rich furnishings, and stately decor. A traditional home office will most likely have floor-to-ceiling wood book cases or oversized secretaries that serve the same purpose. With all of the darker and heavier furniture, you may want to consider lighter, neutral wall colors or wallpaper in order to balance it out. This is especially true if you consistently work on a computer. Natural light is important to prevent your eyes from strain. Have a small space? Or prefer lighter colored accents? No problem. Lighter colors can keep your small traditional office space from feeling too cramped. Smart desk and shelving designs prioritize efficiency.
  2. Modern. If you like the look of a modern office, you have a wide variety of options. Anything goes these days. If you'll be hosting clients/colleagues in house, you will want to incorporate a comfortable seating area, while still having space for you to work at your own station. Bold colors, clean lines, and funky accents are all a part of creating a contemporary look. You can also design a contemporary office with a traditional ambiance by keeping the dark wood idea but using modern furniture and furnishings. Have a small space? You're in luck because modern design is all about minimalism - less is truly more.
  3. Transitional. Most of us probably fall the transitional category. We like a little of this and a little of that. You may enjoy the look of lots of wood, wall to floor shelving and a decorative area rug, but the unvarnished wood ceiling and clean lines in this transitional home office design give it a modern look. Small office spaces can still maintain a contemporary look with a few vintage accents.
A few modifications to your existing home office space can get it in the professional, functional, and attractive shape you need to do your best work from the comfort of your very own home.
