Go Hard Or Go Home: Incredible Home Office Designs
As increasing numbers of people opt to work from home, there is a growing need and desire for home workers to create the right type of working environment. With more distractions at home and often little space to create a complete office, the challenge is to establish a home office design that enables the worker to maintain productivity and creativity levels. Here are 10 super cool home office designs to draw inspiration from.
The office pod
If lack of space and constant distractions are thorns in your side when working from home, then consider getting yourself an office pod.
This really neat, little, modern pod can be placed at the end of the garden, so you can happily work away in peace and quiet.
The hook-on balcony desk
If you live in an apartment with a balcony, then consider turning this outdoor space into a working area, courtesy of a hook-on balcony desk.
This clever design made from weatherproof materials rests on railings, giving you a flat surface to place your laptop.
Upcycle an old bus
One of the coolest home office designs involves taking a clapped out bus and transforming it into a working space. It might not be something that everyone can try at home and, let’s face it, most of us might struggle to get our hands on an old bus.
But, it still provides bags of inspiration to ignite the spark for much less complex home office upcycling projects.
Think: under shelf lighting or contemporary blocks of lighting that will inspire great working ideas.
Office space under the stairs
If space is tight at home, then one of the coolest ways to incorporate an office into your home is to turn the redundant area under your stairs into a mini home working office.
Essentially, all you need is a small desk, laptop and chair. But, with a little thought and imagination you could create a really inspiring place to work.
If you’re lucky enough to have adequate attic space that you can remodel into a home working environment, then there are tons of design ideas that can help you to transform this area into something really special. Opt for light, bright colours and make the most of the natural lighting.
Vintage home office
Create a working space that has a distinct vintage feel, making the most of distressed furniture, pretty pastel shades, decorative ornaments and antique finds that can be included as part of your office space.
This is a really great design for those working from home, who don’t have enough dedicated space to create an office room. The modular office allows you to create a room within a room, so that when you’re working you can easily shut yourself off from all of the distractions around you.
Repurpose an old wardrobe into usable office space, by taking out the shelving or rails and incorporating a desk, drawers, etc to create a really unique home working space. At the end of the working day, close the wardrobe doors and leave your work behind.
An office for two
If both you and your partner spend time working from home, then you could face a real dilemma as to where you can find adequate office space for two people. A really smart idea is to take a bookshelf and face one of the sides against a wall. With the shelving protruding out, you can then place two small desks on either side of it, and customise it to your liking.
