Often it is an unused space in the home that is best converted
into a home office, and that could be anything from a spare
bedroom to a small hallway nook. You’ll need to do your
furniture planning around your available space, while considering
other elements such as electrical access, storage, and a private
working environment. If your home office space can’t
be closed off from disturbances, you may want to use your furniture
pieces and partitions to create as quiet a spot as possible.
Your primary furniture piece will be your desk. Choose something
that is comfortable and with necessary space for a computer,
writing, and other potential uses. You’ll also want to
consider storage and organization at your desk, depending on
what you most use your home office for.
Next you’ll need to choose a desk chair, and comfort
is the key here as well. A desk chair should promote good posture
and back support. It should also be height adjustable for optimum
comfort and functionality.
Aside from these key items, and depending on your space, you
may wish to include other furniture pieces such as a filing
cabinet, bookshelves, storage armoires, and additional seating
for clients or guests. All of these pieces should be chose
to fit conveniently around your desk area for easy access and
mobility about your office space.
