TIPS FOR CREATING A HOME OFFICE BY PHOTIS PHOTI – DESIGN DIRECTOR, GOSLING LTD

Creating the ultimate home office environment is all about investing in the right pieces and designing a space that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Working with the Gosling Design team you have the opportunity to really elevate your home office to the next level.

Some top tips for creating a bespoke home office:

Choose a dedicated space:

If possible, choose a dedicated room or area of your home to serve as your office. This will allow you to fully focus on your work and create a professional atmosphere. If you don’t have a spare room, consider converting a basement or attic into an office space.

Convert the space at the stair landing to make a study

Make the spare room into a part study

Or devote an entire room and create a library study with fitted bookcases

Invest in a beautifully crafted desk:

A desk is the centrepiece of any home office and it’s worth investing in a stunning piece of furniture that is both functional and stylish. Consider a desk made of solid wood, carbon fibre or another state-of-the-art material, and choose a size that is appropriate for your needs. A desk with built-in storage can be a great investment as well.

Get a comfortable, ergonomic chair:

A comfortable chair is essential so invest in a desk with good lumbar support and consider if you want adjustable height and armrests.

Classic club chair

For ergonomic comfort the original Aeron

Invest in good lighting:

Carefully considered lighting is crucial for any home office, choose a mix of overhead lighting and task lighting to ensure you have enough light to see your work. Installing dimmer switches so that you can adjust the lighting as needed is a must.

Choosing the correct desk light to complement the desk

Bookcase lighting not only lights the objects within but also gives the room a gentle non directional glow

Object displayed on top of the cabinets create atmosphere though the shadows

Add some personal touches:

Personal touches can make a home office feel more welcoming and comfortable. Adding artwork, beautifully curated photo collages or other personal items to the space will make it feel more like your own.

Adding all those personal collections and objects creates this ultimate library study environment

Bespoke storage solutions:

A cluttered office can be distracting and unproductive, so it’s important to consider storage solutions that will help you keep your space organized. The Gosling Team pride themselves on storage! Hidden file drawers, document holders and office supplies.

Fully fitted open shelving allows you to maximum your storage and display your precious things in the same space.Hidden printers within drawers

Beautifully had crafted drawers are always a pleasured to use and store your stationery in lined compartments

Adding a gallery creates compartments for displaying your special stationery

Incorporate technology:

Technology is key in any home office and incorporating screens, key pads, charging points and TVs early in the design process will make your space feel state of the art and future proof.
