5 Simple Ways To Refresh Your Home Office Space

Home office spaces come in all shapes, sizes and styles. Create your dream office space with these five home office decorating ideas.

1. Give your accent wall a view.

Spark inspiration by creating a wall mural from your own image or purchase a pre-cut wall mural. Companies like Photowall offer wall murals featuring classic motifs divided into various categories, including, for example, cities, forests, skies, animals, maps, beaches and more. Wall murals can instantly refresh your office space and keep your goals in front of you through the year.

2. Breakout your thinking chair.

Designate a specific place in your office to think. Investor and philanthropist Warren Buffett is known to place high value on this success tip. Buffet says, “I insist on a lot of time being spent, almost every day, to just sit and think. That is very uncommon in American business. I read and think. So I do more reading and thinking, and make less impulse decisions than most people in business.”

Place a modern, comfortable and functional chaise lounge in the corner of your office, or by a window and take small breaks to spark creative inspiration (or a quick nap if you’re burning the midnight oil).

 

 

3. Rethink your lamp shades.

Let the light in and give your old lamp a reboot. Lamp shades are an inexpensive way to add color or to help tie your decor design together.

4. Organize with tall accent shelves.

Throw out your bulky, out-dated bookshelf and display your awards, family photos and office accessories in a contemporary bookcase. Consider adding a floor-to-ceiling or wall mounted bookcase. This trick will expand how high your ceilings look, and it’s a great way to add storage.

5. Add depth with a floor mirror.

Include mirrors in your home office space! The reflection will make a room look bigger and reflect natural light. A large mirror in a small room creates the illusion of depth. Add a large floor length mirror behind a piece of office furniture in tight spaces. According to Apartment Therapy, “Mirrors the same width of the furniture make the piece look purposeful and prominent rather than shoved in.”
