A home office offers you dual opportunity. Not only is it a place where you can further your career, but it’s also a place that allows for self-expression. Since you choose the décor, you can do as much or as little as you want.
Many people opt for the latter – they want minimalist appeal. So, how can you achieve this? Like the name implies, it takes minimal effort. For starters, try the following:
Floating shelves provide more visual draw than regular shelves. But they serve a purpose, too. You may use them to display your diploma or your business license. Or perhaps you’ll use them for your calendar or family photo. They help space things out, which keeps the area looking sharp and orderly.
There are many ways you can amp up the coziness of an office while keeping things simple. A fuzzy blanket draped over your office chair may do the trick; or try a fuzzy rug in the center of the room. Even a candle adds to the ambience. Tiny touches give you a chance to express yourself without those expressions taking over every square inch.
A storage area
A storage area is essential for a home office. But, not just any storage area…opt for one that’s hidden! No matter how minimal you want to be, the fact is that certain items are necessary. From staplers to scissors, from copy paper to a thesaurus, there’s something to be said for office essentials. Yet, just because you need them, it doesn’t mean you need to display them. This is where storage comes in. Whether it’s a closet or a drawer, storage is the minimalist’s best friend.
All white or all black
Most of us enjoy colors – red, orange, yellow…we adore each hue on the spectrum. And sometimes, colorful décor inspires. But, with minimalism, lack of color works to your benefit. Thus, decorate your home office with consistency – make everything all black or all white. This provides a crisp, clean effect, as well as a look of sophistication.
A tidy desk
Sure, a messy desk might mean you’re busy (something you certainly want to be when it comes to work), but it’s not aesthetically pleasing. One of the best things about minimalism is that it also keeps your mess to a minimum. A good rule of thumb is this: if you don’t use an item regularly, get rid of it (or put it somewhere else in case you need it in the future).
Minimalism conveys a clean, fresh look. It keeps your office free of clutter, and this helps you be more productive, day after day.
