TIPS FOR CREATING A HOME OFFICE BY PHOTIS PHOTI – DESIGN DIRECTOR, GOSLING LTD19th January 2023
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Beautifully had crafted drawers are always a pleasured to use and store your stationery in lined compartments
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.
