Tips For Designing Your Home Office
Bring The Outdoors In
Not everyone is fortunate to have an extra empty room for a home office. If you are looking for innovative ways to add a dedicated space for work, think about repurposing a table, bookshelf, or room. Some of our favorite dual-purpose areas are dining room/office combinations. While dinner parties are on a temporary hold, consider turning your formal room into the perfect WFH haven. Don’t have a dining room? Creative areas using space-saving furniture under a staircase, a nook, or tucked away in a corner, can help you create a dedicated space for your 9-5 even if you don’t have the extra room.
