Designing My Home Office

You may have read my post recently about the pros and cons of working from home. Whilst I love having the opportunity to be able to work from home unfortunately at the moment I don't have a work space or office. As I don't have a desk I tend to just sit at the kitchen table which frustrates me sometimes as all my 'stuff' is spread about everywhere and I don't have anywhere to store it. I would absolutely love my own space in our home to sit at and do my work and I have lots of ideas on how I would decorate it.

A Corner Desk
Ideally I would like to have a corner desk. I think they look so much neater and are perfect if you are short on space. I work from a Macbook so I don't need space for a monitor or keyboard however I would like the desk to have at least two drawers at the side so I have some storage space.

Colourful 
My work space would definitely have to be colourful and bright. I would have lots of pastel coloured pots and mini drawers to keep my pens, pencils and other stationary bits in.

Near A Window
No matter what the weather I love being able to look out the window. A few years ago I had a desk under the window and it was amazing how many thoughts and ideas would pop in to my head as I gazed outside.

Neat and Tidy
I would want everything to have a place and not just dumped on the desk. I like to be organised and couldn't work from a messy work space.

Just For Me
Most importantly I would want my work space to be just for me. I wouldn't want the boys doing their  homework at my desk or borrowing my stationary. It would be a completely child free zone.

The other things to consider is whether the desk is by a power source which is obviously very important if using a computer, laptop etc. I would also like to have a good solid chair that will support my back. You can get some ideas of home office furniture at https://www.furniture-work.co.uk/home-office-furniture as the ranges of desks, chairs and storage units is huge.

Do you work from home? Do you work from a home office or work space?

  1. It would be lovely to have a desk that was just mine, at the minute I share a desk with my husband so nothing is where I left it when I go back!

  2. It's so much easier to work at home when you have a dedicated space that you can have just for yourself. I love the idea of the corner desk as it gives you a lot of workspace but still doesn't look too big.

  3. This would be a perfect space. At the moment I tend to do most of my work from the kitchen table which isn't great either. I look forward to seeing how your space evolves.

  4. I work from home and it has taken ages to find a space...and then to organise it...and then keep it organised. I am lucky to have a spare room but I hate the desk I have - it just doesn't work for the space but I haven't found anything yet I love. I do love that all my pens etc are off my desk and in little baskets hanging on the wall - I can get to them easily but they're off the desk.

  5. I have a little desk in my office and a lock on the door to keep my toddler out - it's the only room in the house with a lock. I don't find the space very conductive for working though. Need to go back to the design board and think again of how I want it to look and feel.

  6. That's a very nice set-up. A corner desk is very practical; lots of arm and leg space.
