How to set up a contemporary home office
If you’re in the process of setting up a home office, you can go all out on décor and design ideas. You don’t have to restrict yourself to conventional “office” rules. Depending on the space available, you can have a cozy and comfortable office or a modern, contemporary office space. One idea is to go with the décor of the house so that the home office blends in seamlessly. Take a look at some ideas for a contemporary office setup here:
What do you need to run your home office? How much of storage space do you need? Is a computer absolutely necessary for your work? Will you be employing another person to work in your home office? Ask yourself all these questions and more before equipping your home office.
A home office doesn’t necessarily have to mean a small, cramped up space. Even with space-constraints, you can have organized office space where you can spend many productive hours. When you’re going in for a modern look, it means you’re choosing the simple, uncluttered look with letter organizers and a modern office desk.
If you have clear wall space with no windows hampering the space, then you can contain all your needs to within that wall. Set up your desk there. The wall can be used for storage cupboards. Place a comfortable chair and a modern office desk near the wall. Let the wall be to your back so you’re looking out at the room with the desk in front of you. For smaller spaces or a corner wall space, get organized with a small and compact-sized desk set against the wall. Make storage space just above the desk where you can easily reach for files.
A Desk Wave desk from Offi is ideal for your home office. It’s designed by Eric Pfeiffer and is compact and space-saving. The modern office desk has a curved top that flows upwards to create the perfect place for your monitor and other desktop items.
You can have a wicker file box if you want to do away with cupboards and keep it under the desk for easy retrieval of papers. You can also keep a Safco Rack desktop letter organizer that has both horizontal and vertical filing compartments for storing all your papers, letters, file folders, binders, books and others.
