5 Tips to Design Your Home Office

Working from home is now part of life for many. By now, you’ve probably had a space set up that gets the job done. But if you’re looking to move it or enhance it, here are five tips to keep in mind that should make the transition even smoother!

Location, location, location!

It’s important to make sure you have plenty of space and lighting. A nice view wouldn’t hurt, either! If you don’t have an extra room for an office, you might consider setting up in a master bedroom. If the room is big enough, you can easily incorporate a budget-friendly desk with two drawers. Try to place it by a window. The natural light and a view of the outdoors can be key for a good day’s work!

Love your wall color

If you are in a space that doesn’t provide an ideal amount of natural light, it may help to refresh your wall color. Choose something that is calming and inspiring to you. If you really want to dress it up, pick out a wall decal.

Define the space with an area rug

Adding an area rug is a great way to create or define a new space. If you have a corner that you’re trying to mark as your own, a fun patterned rug or something that adds some color should do the trick. Plus, if you end up keeping your wall paint color simple and neutral, adding a fun splash of color or a bold print to your space is the way to go. Browse our large selection of rugs at .

Add some personalized decor

Take time to add in some small but important details. Consider some cherished artwork your children created, a framed photo of your loved ones or furry friends, an inspirational sign with a quote, a lamp, or a candle. Make that space yours, even if it is temporary.

Get organized

Since most home offices do not provide a ton of space, it’s important to have a drawer or storage cube so you can store papers, pens, extra cords, and anything else you might think of.
