We offer examples of beautiful home offices as inspiration for those currently working from home.
Most will agree that you need a dedicated space to be productive when you work from home. This can be a separate office or just a good desk and office chair combo.
Either way, a dedicated workspace aids concentration and is likely to make working more comfortable.
How your workspace looks also plays a role. Make your home office unique and appealing, and you’ll be happier there – and less likely to resent its presence in your home.
Plants can make all the difference to a workspace. Some plants are supposed to aid concentration by cleaning the air and providing oxygen.
The Art Gallery
Add your favourite art pieces to your workspace for inspiration or just for something to admire while you work.
If you have an amazing view, try to take advantage of it when you set up your home office. A view of nature or a bustling cityscape can be surprisingly inspiring while you work.

Warm and cosy are the keywords here. If you favour comfort above all else, opt for a big comfy chair, rugs or carpets and a fireplace for the winter months.
The Quiet Space
If you need quiet to work, try to position your workspace in a separate room with a door. Alternatively, repurpose a large or walk-in closet.

The Colour Palette
Colours can affect your mood so the colour scheme you choose for your workspace is important. Choose a palette that soothes you.
The Perfect Lighting
Some people need bright light while others prefer a dark room when they work. Set your space up to suit your lighting comfort level.

Whether you just like being surrounded by books or need them nearby for research, nothing looks better in a home office than a large bookshelf.

The Tech Utopia
Conveniences like double screens, ergonomic keyboards and noise-cancelling headphones can make a huge difference to your work environment.
To incorporate some physical activity into your workday with very little effort, consider a standing desk.
A fully outdoor office might not be practical but a shed office in the garden is a great way to get away from distractions and noise.
For some people, an organised and minimalist space is the way to go. With a clear desk and everything in its place, distractions are minimised.

Even if you’re short on space, you can still have a dedicated workspace. There’s a plethora of ideas online for making the most of the space you have.

And if you do have space, why not make your office a multipurpose studio with large work surfaces, bookshelf, cubbyholes and storage spaces. A creative’s dream.

Custom desk chairs from K-Mark
A must-have when working from home is a decent office chair. Trying to sit in an unsuitable chair or on a sofa or bed for hours every day puts pressure on your spine and joints, and is bad for your health.
At K-Mark, we can’t help you design a beautiful home office – but we can provide a high-quality office chair. We manufacture a wide range of office furniture, including ergonomic office chairs that provide the best possible support for your spine. We can also customise most chairs with fabric and features of your choice, so you can match your chair to your home office aesthetic.
