When it comes to working from home, it’s so important to have a designated office space. But with an overwhelming amount of possibilities, and lots of variables when it comes to space, home use, and others living there, it can be something that gets put off. Indefinitely. So, if you’ve been wondering how to create your dream home office, we’re here to help!

First, make a firm and clear choice about where your home office will be. You don’t need to have an entire separate room, it can simply be a designated table or desk, or a small nook in an already established space. You may also consider converting an unused garage, attic, basement, or shed into an office. It’s really about what works best for you.

Once you’ve decided where you want to work, the fun part comes in. Time to design! First up? A desk. While there are endless options, we’ve chosen the York Desk as our pick for your home office desk. With several color options, a sleek design, and functionality, the York Desk will make working from home even more enjoyable than it already is.

For those with considerably less space to use, you may want to check out the Minimal Float Wall Desk or the LAX Wall Mounted Desk.

Now that we’ve got a desk underway, it’s time to search for a great home office chair. For a sweet take on a standard office chair, the Prisma Office Chair offers comfort and the option to swivel. Which is very important for fancy office meetings and general work productivity. Or so we hear.

To add some comfort under foot, since working from home can be tiresome and include long hours, we’ve chosen the Big Jos 800 Shag Rug. This rug is handwoven and luxurious, and available in three sizes to work for you in that nook, shed, or proper office.

Other than a desk, chair, and some comfort, one doesn’t need much more for his or her home office design. However, we’d be remiss to not throw in a few more items, just for fun. The Libratone Loop WIFI Speaker, available in nearly any color your heart desires, will keep your tunes playing all day for constant motivation. The Brick Desk/Wall Clock will keep you on task and on time for important things like lunch. And the Unfold Pendant Lamp will keep things bright, bold, and well-lit.

When you start to ask yourself, “how do I design a modern home office?” make sure to remember these key steps: 1. have fun, 2. get creative, and 3. shop at Viesso. With those guidelines, you surely can’t go wrong.
