Office Round Up
Everybody needs a ‘command central’ space in their home.
Whether this looks like a room in and of itself, a multipurpose space or simply a small surface within another area, home offices come in all shapes, sizes and styles.
Having a space, and a place for bills, homework, to-do lists and all the paperwork that accumulates on a daily basis is essential. Whether you have kids going back to school or simply love the idea of getting back into a Fall routine, September is often a fresh start, much like the start of a new year.
With a new school year soon to be underway, blank notebooks are ready for pens to make their mark. Is it time to revisit an area in your home to get organized for the day to day tasks at hand?
I love this time of year. While I relish in the summer months I do celebrate the fall and all it has to offer.
Style, function, location… all things to take into consideration when designing a home office. While there are many more aspects to consider during the design process, we have our top tips and favourite current accessories to get your home office space into ship shape and ready to be as organized, and stylish, as possible!
Designed to Suit: Considering the room size, requirements for storage and expectations for function, are all necessary details when designing a space. From the smallest to the largest, how you work or organize daily family happenings is important in order to design the best possible space.
Storage Style: Organization comes in many forms, including file drawers, boxes, trays, baskets and many more. Itemizing your needs and allocating space for each, is an important part of ensuring not only storage, but also meeting the aesthetics of design.
Multipurpose Mindset : A home office can easily be combined within another space in the home. Consider kitchens, pantries, hallways, stairwell landings and guest rooms as options to house your day to day home office needs. Get creative with your existing space!
Perfectly Personal: One is most productive in a space that they want to spend time in. Decor details are important in order to create a polished space, specifically suited to both your personality and style. Interests such as travel, reading, writing, photography, music, sports, etc, can be embraced in your own way.
