Looking to improve your home office? Here are some tips for creating a space you will love…
First, keep it simple—a calm, organized space is best for productivity. Storing your projects and papers in color coordinated binders and bins cuts down on the visual clutter of the space.
Select a room with natural light or a great view—it will elevate your mood.
If you plan to display your collection of books, select a neutral color for the room to serve as a backdrop. You will be surprised by the cheerful colors they will add to the space.
Get inspired by beauty and surround yourself with things you love—whether it’s beautiful antiques or a fabulous picture wall.
There are many styles and types of offices—pick a style that suits your personality.
