Choosing the perfect home office desk
What type of home office desk is right for you? Are you in the creative industry, in need of space for inspiration and clutter? Are you big on organisation and in need of maximum storage solutions and order? Or, are you working from home in a small apartment and dreaming of a chic office space but can't seem to work out how a home office is possible at all?!
The perfect home office desk for a small space:
We love it for its sleek design and the fact that it takes up hardly any space! The grain of the teak is unique in each piece and serves rustic elegance! Accommodating a small storage cabinet with 3 drawers underneath, this office desk has it all.
The best lamps for a home office
A desk lamp in your home office is a fail safe staple. However, it's hard to find the balance between efficient lighting and a good looka. Often, the best looking lamps give off a moody ambient glow but right now... that's not what we're after. The Chalgrove is clean and simple but with an industrial flare that makes it a cool desk centrepiece.
A floor lamp isn't the most obvious go-to when planning a home office space. A desk lamp is the natural first thought. However, we are huge advocates of freeing up space on the desk or table. A decluttering design is always a good idea, in our books.
Sleek and elegant, the Domme Floor Lamp doesn't come with the usual small space anxiety... its charm is in its subtlety. The antique brass finish is beautiful and the elongated neck makes it the perfect overhead light when you're working at your desk.
How to accessorise your home office space
Accessorising your home office is all about pairing minimalism and practicality with a fresh and personalised style. Transforming the thought of sitting down at your desk from back to work blues to a personal retreat, Raft knows the styling secrets.
1. Make it personal
Working from home comes with the added benefit of limitless opportunity to personalise your space. When personalising your office at work, family photos are often the way. However, now you're working from home, you're most likely already amidst family photos and memorabilia. For this reason, we love framed prints, small sculptures, a proud trophy or whatever else speaks to you, personally! These things will serve as design features and personal pick me ups.
2. Wall Clock
Staring at a screen all day can be draining and really takes a toll on your eyes. Investing in a wall clock for your office is a decision that may seem unnecessary at the moment but trust us when we say it'll transform the way you work. Looking up once in a while is an underrated luxury in this golden age of technology. Adding these details to your home office will make all the difference. Our Collingwood Wall Clock has a brass antique finish and makes the perfect addition to a period or modern industrial home.
3. Indoor plants
We really can't do enough to promote the addition of indoor plants to your home. There are just so many benefits for your mental and respiratory health, as well as the general aesthetic of a room. With the ability to reduce stress, clean the air and reduce noise levels, indoor plants are the ultimate home office hack. Whether it's a hanging plant or is proudly sat in one of our concrete planters (the perfect plant pairing texture), you won't regret the decision to add an indoor plant to your home office. Check out our Concrete Hurricane Planter, Concrete Floor Planter and Concrete Rectangle Planter!
There's no question that your home office needs a diffuser. You're spending a large proportion of your day sat in one space and once the colder months hit, leaving a window open won't always be favourable. Choose a fresh diffuser that you don't have elsewhere in your house, to draw a distinction between work and rest.
