Designing a Contemporary Home Office

Your home office space certainly does not have to be boring. In fact, working from home means you can add a lot more personal flair and style to your workspace, versus working in a traditional office. The best way to add a contemporary look and feel to your home office is easily achieved through the right office furniture.

Here are our top tips for creating a contemporary work from home space that suits your personal style and separates your living space from your workspace.

Go for a Minimalist Aesthetic

The minimalist aesthetic has been trending for some time now, and for good reason. Choosing a minimalist look and feel for your home office can do wonders if you’re working with a particularly tight space. Why? Because a minimalist colour palette – like white – can actually make your space look bigger than it is.

However, minimalist does not mean boring. If you’re choosing a strictly white palette, there is nothing stopping you from adding a few simple pops of colour like books or vases on your shelving. But, when it comes to your selection of home office furniture, a minimalist aesthetic helps lengthen the space and creates a light and airy feel.

Whilst the Humanscale Diffrient World chair comes in a variety of colours, this all-mesh chair looks fantastic in white if you’re going for a contemporary minimalist theme. Not only does the Diffrient World chair offer great ergonomic features, but it is also guarantees a more healthy and comfortable sitting experience.

Opt for Clean and Bright

Similar to the minimalist aesthetic is the trendy clean and bright home office look. A bright, light home office is the ideal setup for productive thinking and creativity. Before considering what furniture to purchase to complete this contemporary atmosphere, consider choosing a workspace that is near a window or another source of natural light.

Whilst you’ll want to select home office furniture in lighter colours to complete the light and bright aesthetic, there is no harm in creating contrast with darker accents, as long as they don’t dull the space.

The Formetiq Alto 1 sit stand desk is not only great for burning extra calories by standing while working, it’s white and silver finishes are ideal if you are looking to embrace the light and bright contemporary style.

Add Pops of Colour

Another wonderful way to truly personalise your space while keeping it contemporary is to choose home office furniture that comes in a variety of brighter colours.

Add a dash of orange or bright green to your work from home office by choosing the Boss Design Ola chair. Its elegant and streamlined design is the perfect way to create a contemporary home office.

Other ways to introduce contemporary colours into your work from home space is to paint a focus wall a bright colour, choose a rug that compliments the colour scheme of the furniture you have picked out, or even simply choosing colourful stationary and filing solutions.

Adding a contemporary look and feel to your home office space will undoubtedly inspire productivity. Having a space that you love and that reflects your specific taste will make you want to sit down and conquer your to-do list.
