Are you tired of pre owned cubicles and stuffy office aesthetics? Don’t worry — transforming your home office space into a place you’ll love to be in. Here are a few ways to take your home office to a whole new level.
Add A Mini Fridge
If you’re working long hours and don’t have time or the means to stop and go get food, why not keep everything in your mini fridge? Most options are small and don’t take up too much room, and some may even be able to slide right under your desk. Make sure you keep it stocked with all your favorites!
Upgrade Your Office Chair
You want a chair that’s comfortable and offers plenty of support while you work, so this is the perfect time to upgrade yours. If you’re able to, take the opportunity to test any chairs that are in the running before making the purchase. When in doubt, don’t be afraid to add a memory foam cushion to your seat!
Repaint The Place
Why not spice things up with a fresh coat of paint? Changing the color of your space is an easy way to make it feel like a completely different place, and the possibilities for colors and patterns are endless. If you don’t want to deal with the paint, you can use wallpaper (permanent or temporary) for a fun, bright change of pace. Repainting along with any renovations in the house that is essential to your home office no longer needs to be a financial burden. In Australia, renovations to home offices can be added when claiming tax deductions for work from home employees and entrepreneurs with home offices.
Add Cozy Accessories
Your office space should feel like a place just for you, so don’t be afraid to fill it with the things you love. Potted plants, your favorite books, photos of yourself and your loved ones, movie posters, pokemon plush toys, soft pillows and blankets, cool knick knacks and other fun accessories are all great additions to any office space.
Don’t Forget Music
As long as your job doesn’t depend on a quiet environment, you deserve to enjoy all your favorite tunes on a quality sound system. Even the addition of a single soundbar can make all the difference, and they’re easy to mount and/or disguise in plain sight. If you don’t want to listen to music, your sound system is also perfect for gentle ambience like ocean waves and rain.
No matter what your line of work is, your office space should be comfortable, efficient and perfectly tailored to suit your needs. If you’re unhappy with your current setup, don’t be afraid to change things up and try something new!
