A home office can be one of the most important rooms in your home. So much goes on there - running a business, managing household matters, telecommute, or study. You office needs to be more than just a desk and chair, it needs to be a place where your creativity can flourish.Here's a few tips to create a charming and practical work space.


Location, Location, Location

You will certainly be spending a lot of time in your home office. You need space to move and breathe, which means a desk in the closet won't cut it. Also think about distractions and traffic flow. What environment do your work best in? Will you be having clients visit your office? If so, a private space with seating is a must.


Form Over Function

You office should be a reflection of the rest of your home and feel like a part of the whole design. For homes with traditional decor, you might put in a comfy chair or love seat if you have the space. Or you might chose artistic pieces and modern furniture for a more contemporary home.


The Right Chair

The right chair makes all the difference. Plan on spending enough money to find the one that fits your body. Or you might ditch the chair and get a standing desk, which are gaining popularity. In the end, whatever helps you be the most productive will be the right choice.


Room With a View

A window that lets int he natural light is better than a blank wall any day. But if you don;t have a window, hang a favorite photo above your desk or face your desk toward the door.


Master your technology

You can't do much to make office equipment more beautiful, but you can hid those unruly cords. Position your equipment near outlets and round up the cords with velcro strips or other binding that's easy to undo. Feed the bundled cords behind the desk or through any holes made for cords in your desk.


See the Light

Make sure your office has plenty of light. This will reduce eye strain and headaches. Make sure your monitor is positioned to reduce glare from the window or overhead light, and use a desk lamp for doing tasks.


Inspire Yourself

You space should inspire you, so set up a few things in your office that are meaningful to you and motivate you.
