Home offices have become an important and necessary part of our lives. Creating a secluded space that properly accommodates your needs when it comes to work is important to us. Having a space that envelopes peace & tranquility can really change your mindset – all it takes is a properly balanced layout and the use of Modernism.
The last few years have brought on the idea of working from home for many. While some people may be returning to their offices within the next few months, remote work will remain popular if given the opportunity.
Create a Functional Home Office
Having a functional home office in your house was a priority for 2020. Some even worked from the dining room table. Now that we’re nearing the end of 2021, it’s time to revamp that workspace. Define the area, bring it to life and give it a more of a trendy modern vibe.
Here are some ideas to help you achieve a modern look in your home office that inspires productivity.
Clutter-Free Work Zone
For some, this tip may come as a surprise or be hard to imagine. When it comes to decorating your desk though, it is usually best to leave it alone. Think of your desk as a blank slate. Being free of accessories and décor can give your brain the visual space it needs, free of distractions & clutter. Plus, the white, sleek, clean slate matches the modern look perfectly.
Neutral Color Schemes with Vibrant Accents
The neutral theme follows the same principle of having a bare desk —fewer distractions in your home office means you have the opportunity to express your creativity and finish your work as quickly and efficiently as possible. When I say neutral, don’t confuse it with sterile or boring. You still want personality and a welcoming feeling from your office. Taking a modern approach and adding splashes of color with a vibrant shade with some texture & different designs throughout the room will help bring it to life. This is an easy way to bring character to the room while remaining neutral.
Natural Light Is Key
Natural lighting is of the utmost importance in a home, especially in the office. It helps you save on artificial lighting during the day, it is beneficial for your health & it can make a huge difference in a home office. It just so happens that showcasing natural light as if it’s a focal point fits the modern theme. If you have a room in your home with large windows, this is the ideal modern home office space. Add a little character with sheer drapery & some professional window treatments to complete the look.
Natural lighting aside, it is important to have a proper “task” light (desk or lamp) that suits your needs & is practical for when there is no natural light. Remember this throughout the design process.
Professional window treatments can frame out your windows, completing the perfect look.
Use What You Have
If you’re trying to create an office that’s free of distraction with efficiency in mind, think about your decor choices in a functional way. Use your book collection, for example, to fill shelves or stack under a sculpture. Whichever way suits you best. Having your degrees and other professional credentials on display is another simple yet effective way to approach modern design and decor.
