Top Trending Colors
The first thing you’ll need to decide on for your home office is the color schemes. While you may choose several choices overall, having a theme of colors is key to getting the look just right. Studies have shown that green is conducive to concentration, while blue is conducive to focus. The top trending colors for home office setups are:
- White/off whites
No matter what you choose, pick a color scheme that you enjoy and will fit with the overall design of your home.
Trending Styles For Men
While these options are not limited to just men, the trending masculine details include a combination of:
- Leather accents
- Blue and gray finish
- Mixed cabinet door finishes
- Large black frame windows
As you plan your office, you may want to consider these trends, or choose something entirely different and start your own new trend!
Trending Styles For Women
When you are looking for a softer, more feminine style for your home office, you can consider:
- Modern elegance
- Soft fabric patterns
- Mauvy tones
- Subtle and sophisticated
- Medium stain wood tone
These types of styles can look good in almost any office, and adding a few to your space will help to lighten up the look.
Top Neutral Styles
If neither of those looks really appeal to you, you can consider some classic and neutral color options, which may include:
- Light wood flooring
- Pastel cabinets
- Matching wood-topped desk or tables
- Traditional style rug with a color pop
These new trending styles are sure to brighten up your space with a splash of color, adding some new fun style to your room.
The Finishing Touches
Once you have your main color scheme and overall furniture chosen, now it’s time to get down to making your home office truly your own. This will happen in all the little details and finishing touches. You can consider a lot of options like lighting, wallpaper, accent cabinetry doors, mixed finishes, moulding wall details, and much more. You can add different paint with various stains to add some new color to your home office. You may also choose to add multi-dimensional materials that add texture to your space.
Personalizing Your Office
After you finish the little details of your office, it’s always fun to add in some personalization to make the space truly yours. To begin personalizing, find something that feels inspiring to you as your focus. You can add in decor on your walls or desk, depending on the space that is available to you. However, you should avoid distracting items that may cause you to stop working and reduce your productivity. But in the end, you will want to craft a home office that you truly love to use day in and day out!
Staying Well At Home
While you’re working at home, you will need to be sure that you are doing everything you can to stay healthy and active. To begin, you’ll need to set boundaries between your working time and your home time. This can be difficult if your workspace is in your kitchen or living room. But take the time to get up from your work and put away any materials or shut off your computer when you are done so that you can avoid any temptation to continue outside of working hours. If possible, work near a window and add some houseplants to your space to give yourself clean, natural light and comforting greenery.
Some further health tips include:
- Work with ergonomic friendly furniture or desk accessories
- Stay hydrated
- Eat a healthy diet
- Stick to a normal routine
- Schedule your exercise
- Take regular breaks from your screen
While working from home can be fun and exciting, it’s easy to get sucked into work, so always make sure you are keeping healthy habits!
