With more and more people working from home these days, a sophisticated office space has become an increasingly important part of home design. So how can you make the most of your home office?

Start by ensuring that your office promotes a healthy work environment. If you need peace and quiet while working, don’t set up your home office in a place where the kids will be running by all day! Even small considerations—like painting the walls a color you like or giving yourself a decent view from the window—can bring a positive energy to your workspace.

 Furniture can also play a large role in your office’s style and function. A wooden bookcase or wooden file cabinets are a great way to store important documents, books, and anything else you might need for your day-to-day work. Of course, choosing furniture pieces that match your personal style can also make entering your office a pleasant (rather than dreaded) experience.

 When selecting wooden desks, be sure to consider how you would need to use your desk space—many people do much more than just use their computer. Choosing wooden desks that are the right size can make a big difference in your ability to be productive. For example, Swiss Valley Furniture’s Master Corner Desk provides a large L-shaped workspace with room for multiple projects. If you’re short on space, an option like the Modern Shaker Desk w/Hutch can help you maximize a smaller area with above-desk storage hutches.

 When you pay attention to both style and function—whether it be in selecting a wooden bookcase or choosing office decorations—you’ll be able to get better results from your home office space.
