Creating A Home Office Any Woman Would Love
One thing most women entrepreneurs want when it comes to their home office is a space that is designed with them in mind. You want your space to motivate you, to be easy to spend many hours in, and you want it to be comfortable (but not too comfortable). You want a space that is you.
When it comes to creating that home office there are many decisions you’ll need to make. You’ll want the right colors, the right decor, the right office furniture, and you’ll want all the right tech. Here are some tips for designing your perfect home office.
What kind of design do you want? This is one of the areas you’ll find most of your inspiration and it’s a way to make the room about you. Whether you prefer an art deco look or you want something country-chic, or maybe you like a victorian look, the possibilities are endless, and it’s all your choice.
You do want to stick with one design style, though. Integrating too many of the looks you love together can make the room look more distracting, and you want to have a room you can be focused and productive in.
Furniture can play a huge role in an office. You want furniture that you are comfortable in, that promotes good posture, and that is lasting. It’s good to consider ergonomic office furniture, like stand up desks and chairs that are made to promote healthy posture.
You might even want one of those fitness balance balls in your office. These help with good posture and they let you sit comfortably while giving your core a good workout!
Color makes a big difference in life in general, from how it affects your mood to how it makes a room feel. If you want an office that promotes relaxation, blue is a good color. If you want to focus, try a mild shade of yellow.
Reds and purples are both power colors, but they can be fairly strong colors and would be best saved for an accent wall or for some of your additional decor in the room. Take a little time to learn the psychology of colors so that you can pick the right ones for your home office space.
Don’t forget the extras you’ll need to make your home office complete. If you do some work late at night, or your room doesn’t have much in the way of good light, you might want a desk lamp. You’ll need a filing cabinet if you’re working with paperwork at all.
This is also the right time to make sure that you have all of the tech you’ll need, from a computer that has the ability to get the job done to the right printer for your needs.
Tight on space? You may want to go paperless in your home office. Check this video for tips on going green!
