Working from home might be a mainstay, or it may just happen from time to time. Regardless of how much time you think you’ll be spending in your home office, the overall tone of the space can have a big impact on how productive you can be. Simply put, maximize design and you’ll maximize your time.
1. Desk Chairs That Are Just As Functional As They Are Stylish

So simple but often overlooked. Get yourself a comfortable chair that makes you want to sit down and get to work! Discomfort can be a huge distraction, so consider this tip for improving both your productivity and your posture. There are plenty of options that prioritize both form and function, so style does not have to be compromised over comfort. Depending on where you purchase from, take note of the return policy, and if the chair you picked isn’t working out don’t be afraid to swap it out for a new one.
2. Gold And Copper Hardware

Gold and copper are surprisingly versatile, which makes this a great trend for a timeless look. From light fixtures to desk organizers, feel free to use these metallic accents as much or as little as you see fit. Yes, you can mix metals, even if you don’t feel you have an eye for design. The general rules of thumb to follow: choose a dominant to carry through then choose an accent. Separate metals by height, such that similar tones are on a similar plane.
3. Bold Colours And Built-In Storage

Don’t be afraid to go big and go home! Accent walls have come and gone - if you want to do a bold colour, the central trend is to go for it all around. Ample built-in storage is not only for reducing clutter, now it’s here to help you make a statement. Bigger is better, so don’t be afraid of wall to wall shelving in a punchy jewel tone. If you’re not sold on giving up your white walls just yet, playful patterns and art deco are also great options to incorporate bold colours, without going overboard.
When it’s time to renovate or redecorate, incorporating the latest trends can be a great starting point for designing the perfect space.
