Creating your workspace: Home office design ideas

In the past couple of years, there has been a drastic rise in the number of people working from home. At first, you may have used your dining room or your living area as your office. However, as more and more companies have made remote working a permanent situation, you now need to think more seriously about your home office design.

To help you finally make the move from your dining table to your office desk, we’ve put together our top home office design ideas.

Top 5 home office design ideas

Before you order a desk or put up shelving, you need to have an idea of the layout and style you want to achieve. For inspiration, take a look at the home office design ideas below.

Minimalist home office

The key to designing a minimalist office space is keeping things clean and simple. With white walls and simple lighting, you can create a calm area for you to work from. In fact, a minimalist home office is a great solution if you’re easily distracted at work. By opting for some sleek storage units, you can clear away the clutter and make room for elegant accessories.

We would recommend adding a luxurious Monty Leather Club Chair in tempest grey to the corner of your minimalist office, providing you with the perfect place to relax after a long day.

Industrial home office

If your at home office already has an exposed brick wall or reclaimed wood beams, you have the perfect backdrop to bring in industrial design elements. When creating an industrial office space, look for vintage storage units and reclaimed wood shelves. Industrial design is all about enhancing those rough edges to create a warm and characterful space.

To finish off your industrial home office, place one of our Grand Chesterfield Highback Leather Chairs behind your desk, balancing support with style.

Modern home office

Decorating your home office is a great opportunity to add personality to your workspace. In the past year, a key part of a modern home office has been creating an exciting backdrop for video calls. From bold wallpaper to eclectic prints, this is your chance to experiment with colours and patterns.

Tie together the colour scheme of your modern home office, with one of our contemporary leather accent chairs. You can choose from red, green, yellow or blue luxury leather.

Scandinavian home office

A Scandinavian home office is all about designing a beautiful yet functional space. With a simple desk and open shelving, you can provide yourself with a clean and modern area to work in. Lighting is a key part of Scandinavian design, so make sure your desk is well lit with a stylish floor lamp.

To bring some comfort into the space, opt for one of our Hudson leather arm chairs, finished with a soft woven cushion.

Traditional home office

Traditional interior design focuses around classic furnishings, patterned rugs and statement lighting. By placing your desk in the middle of the room, you can create a dramatic backdrop with a floor-to-ceiling bookcase.

If you have the space, a traditional home office is the perfect place for one of our brown Chesterfield Sofas. This will not only provide you with a space to relax, but create a cosy seating area for your clients and guests.


Bring your home office design to life

When designing your home office, it’s important to provide yourself with a space away from your desk, where you can sit back and relax at the end of a stressful day. So, whichever home office design you decide to bring to life, make sure to create a cosy corner, with a leather armchair, knitted blanket and decorative cushion.
