Adding personal touches to your home office brings it to life and invites you to settle in for work. Create a photo gallery above your desk or design a pinboard collage filled with inspirational ideas. Turn your office supplies into decorative pieces with colourful storage boxes or baskets.
If you have storage shelves, use bright containers and intersperse storage with cherished ornaments or your favourite books. Targeted lighting is a necessity, so you might as well make the most of it with decorative reading lamps or a statement pendant light above the desk.
A vibrant rug can make all the difference to bare floors, introduces texture for visual interest and feels amazing underfoot! It’s also an easy way to enhance a feature wall and harmonise your colour scheme with tonal shades, without taking up space. Lastly, there’s nothing like some greenery for a restorative mood boost. Add a cluster of small potted houseplants on the windowsill or in between books and storage. Above we have used Pressed Petal and Dark Garnet for a pretty pink creative corner.
If you’re not sure about your choice of colour scheme, see your small home office ideas in action with the Dulux Visualizer app. Simply download it for free, take pictures or videos of your room and tap your colour choices to watch them transform your space. Or, use Dulux paint tester pots to paint handy samples and compare the colours with your fixtures and décor.
With inspiring colours, smart storage solutions and a personal touch, you’ll spring out of bed each day just to look at your fabulous home office!
