Working from home has become the new trend. Most individuals have designed their home office to be both functional and stylish for that 9am-5pm. Now more than ever it is time to get used to working from home and revisit how your work space can fit into your home by making it organized, chic, and a motivating space to spend time.
Center of Attention
The desk is indeed the center of attention within your at home office so it must be right. This piece will dominate the room and will be where you are posted all day long. Even when space is limited it is still important to choose a piece that is nice looking to set an ambiance. While maintaining function is important having a versatile work station is key. Maintaining balance while working from home allows an individual to “leave their work at work” so choose a piece that will allow you to store any extra paperwork away and really let it be part of a living space. While you’re at it pick out a chair too!
