It starts with finding the perfect location, do you have a separate space for an office at home, is there lots of lighting? Consider traffic flow when furnishing your office. Will there be distractions where you set your desk up? Is your office a quiet personal place? Or, will you be having clients coming in, therefore, you will need ample space for extra seating, and an area large enough to not feel crammed in.
CHOOSING THE PROPER FURNITURE
Your office should serve you, so be sure to consider what it is you need in order to have the perfect work space. You want your furniture to be not only beautiful but functional to your specific needs as well.
You don't want your home office to resemble a cold and dusty cubicle, instead go with the style of your home, is your home rustic, with wood and stone finishes? Why not go for a live-edge desk as your focal point to a rustic office. Or better yet, maybe you are inspired by the chic and luxurious French styles, with ornate embellishments in your office, stealing the show with luxury.
