A friend of mine started working from home recently and while this might sound like a great situation, now she really needs a home office. Probably not simply a desk, chair and computer but a full blown set-up like she has at the company office. And here is where she tells me her challenge comes in – how should she create a home office that not only suits her particular style, but is also functional as well as practical for the rest of her home. So I thought I’d help her out and give her a few ideas which I’d like to share with you as well.
Naturally, I referred her to the New Homes Guide Interiors supplement. Why not look at some of the best model homes in the area?! I also found a great article in House Beautiful with some snapshots of terrific ideas on how to maximize space, create a gathering area within the office, utilize areas you might not think of if you don’t have a dedicated room and so on. Finally, I told her to check out one of my favorite go-to sites for every idea you could possibly ever need: HGTV.
Hope these give you some inspiration when you’re creating your home office!
