Tips to Transform Your Home Office

More time spent working from home calls for a home office refresh! All it takes is a few quick swaps or additions to quickly transform your space.

Let’s face it – being cold or uncomfortable, distracted or drowning in clutter is not conducive to a productive work environment. Ditch the dark office den and transform it into a warm and welcoming space you may never want to leave.

It doesn’t take much to construct the creative cave you crave. Just a few quick and affordable additions and you’ll have a home office space ready to produce your very best work in. In our latest blog, we’ve done the hard yards for you and brought to light some of our favourite home office products, which will see your space transformed in next to no time.

 

Keep things cosy and comfortable

Avoid freezing your way through winter with a few simple additions that will help create a more inviting atmosphere. Ergonomically speaking, we’re big fans of high-quality office chairs that adequately support posture. If your budget only allows for one splurge, make it on a good office chair.

Give freezing floors the flick

Sitting at a desk for long periods of time – especially in the cooler months – can leave you feeling a bit on the cool side. But don’t let a cold, hard floor stop you! Adding a plush rug will help take the chill off. Modern Lantana Rug, $349.00 from Carpet Call.

From daylight to desk lamp

While daylight is abundant, open up your blinds and let the light shine in. Natural lighting works wonders in an office space, but once dusk sets in, ensure you have a bright desk lamp to see you through the evening. Wilfred Table Lamp, $109 from Beacon Lighting.

Fix Your Focus

Sharing your space with little people? Or perhaps you live on a busy road with a constant stream of traffic? Whatever the cause, noise can be a major distraction when trying to work at home.

Enter Sony’s WH1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Over-Ear Headphones from JB HiFi. These lightweight headphones push the boundaries, delivering exceptional audio and the ability to quell ambient noise interference up to four times better than ever before.


Dare to Declutter

Cluttered office = Chaotic mind. Kiss the disarray goodbye by adding some organisational items to your home office space to create some order. After all, you can’t deny the appeal of some neatly organised cables!

Everyone’s favourite flat-pack furniture store is your one-stop shop for all things organisational. IKEA has an enormous range of cable management bits and pieces, but our personal favourite is the KVISSLE cable management box, which ticks all the boxes for form and function. Cable management never looked so good!
