The Latest Home Office Design Trend

It goes without saying that working from home provides you with countless freedoms that you might not experience while working in an office building. One such freedom is the option of decorating your work space according to your own personal taste and trendsetting ways. This makes buying furniture from your local consignment store not only easy but also fun. Let’s explore some of the latest home office design trends.

A Separate Space

One of the biggest trends that architects and interior designers are seeing these days when it comes to home offices is the addition of a detached office to a home. Many at-home workers are opting to put a bit of space between themselves and the home in order to eliminate distractions. If you have extra space on your property and the budget to built a detached office, then you may want to consider doing so for the sake of your work’s progress as well as the eventual resale value of your home.

Multifunctional Office and Bedroom

Just because detached offices are popping up as the new big trend in home office design doesn’t mean you have to commit to such a major renovation. Another equally as in-demand trend is the creation of a multifunctional space that serves as both an office and a bedroom, game room, or library. To create this space more effortlessly, it is important to buy furniture that is also multipurpose, such as desks that offer a lot of storage or a hideaway bed that doubles as a cabinet.

 Classic Furnishings and Accessories

While some designers are encouraging home office owners to go bold with their color choices, the vast majority are recommending that home office décor remain classic so that it retains its attractiveness for years to come. It’s also wise to buy furniture that is classic in style since it offers very few distractions and enhances productivity in the work space.
