Create an accent wall.

Do you have a small space that you’re looking to jazz up? If you don’t have enough natural light in your space but still want to bring in some color and brightness, choose an accent wall. You can choose to paint it in a bright, eye-catching color, or you can go the unique route by installing an interesting print of wallpaper. Add some shelves and functional cabinets and you’ll be able to make the most of your small space, no matter the size!

Install a terrarium for a small pet.

Why not share your workspace with a little friend? Adding in a terrarium for a small pet can be an easy way to add some personality to your home office. It’s best if you choose a pet that doesn’t require a lot of care during the day so you’re not distracted. Consider reptiles like chameleons and geckos, amphibians like a frog, or even insects like Dubia roaches for sale. All you have to do is throw a few feeder insects at your pet at the start of the day, and they’ll be set to be your work companion all day long.

Bring in some greenery.

This is especially important now that the weather is getting cooler with the change of seasons. Adding some green into your space will make your home office feel like a hidden garden! Additionally, more plants in your home mean better oxygen levels, which can help boost your productivity and focus.

Add in multiple light sources.

Do you know what the key is to designing the perfect home office? The answer is simple, lighting! Go crazy with some accent lamps and your room will be looking bright and fresh in no time at all. Plus, more light is always better, not only for improving your mood but also when it comes to ensuring you are seen properly on all those zoom meetings!

Choose a table over a desk.

Chances are, you will want to spread out throughout the workday, so normal desks may not be that functional for you. Instead, you can choose a nice long table that gives you space for all your paper and other work clutter. This is even more helpful if you have multiple monitors at home that you need.

Use open shelving.

The key to staying organized is to ensure you can see all the papers and files that you may need at one time. So with this in mind, use open shelving all throughout your home office. Everything you need should be within easy access and easy reach, so you don’t spend tons of time fumbling for anything during your calls.

Invest in a fun chair.

You don’t need a standard wheeled chair for your home office space, so why not go all out and invest in a big, comfy chair? You’ll be sitting in it all day, so you’ll want to make sure it’ll be comfortable — we love big, overstuffed chairs, tufted armchairs, and even recliners. Add a few throw pillows for some extra support and you’ll be comfy all day.

With these interior decorating tips in mind, you’ll have the home office of your dreams in no time at all!
