How to style and organise your home office

With recently being ‘Organise Your Home Office Day’, it seems the right time to remind all the thousands of home workers that their office space is important. And yet, so few of us make the effort to create a space that is stylish, functional and welcoming. Styling your office doesn’t mean throwing practicalities out the window. You can have the home office you want, in the style that works for you and within budget.

The Desk

You need the right work platform that fits your space and offers you the space you need to work. To illustrate this, we’re launching a range of beautiful yet practical desks, which you can customise to perfectly fit your space. You’ll be able to choose from a range of sizes, and a range of coloured legs, bringing a stunning yet functional piece to style your office around.Oldman White Industrial Office Desk

The Lighting

To reduce eye strain, you need adequate lighting in your workspace. Adding a lamp – why stop at one?! – adds style and detailing too.

As you would expect, we have a fantastic range of desk and floor lamps that perfectly complete the work you do in your stylish home office.

Office Furniture

No office can function without office furniture that offers the right amount of storage. When you store things, from papers to books, the items need to be accessible.

However, finding office furniture that compliments your desk can be tough and that’s why your office space can look and feel mismatched.

We have solutions, from bookcases made from reclaimed wood to industrial furniture and bookcases in a style to match your desk.

Add Finishing Touches with a Dash of Detail

Detailing is important in any space. Accessories add warmth, depth and texture to a room, and your home office should be treated no differently.Large Rustic Metal and Gold Wall Clock 76cm

The Power of Green – plants and flowers in any space but especially your home office are the perfect additions that not only look great, they add colour and scent too. But, there is also research to suggest that a plant in the office creates the right environment for more productivity.

Keep an Eye on the Time – you know what they say: too much work is never a good thing. Make time to play by keeping an eye on the time with a stylish wall clock.

Dress the Walls – art inspires us and when you work long hours at a desk, it can be helpful to have another point of focus in the room, other than your computer screen. Wall art is a great way of adding detail to your room, providing inspiration without distracting you.

Dress the Floor – a rug adds texture, as well as warmth beneath your feet. Choose a colour and style of rug that matches your décor or use it to add a streak of colour and detail into the space. Check out this raspberry Louis de Poortere fading rug or the freshness of a Windsor Blue rug.
