A home office or study can become an essential part of any home, no matter what the size or design style is. Many people find themselves working from home more frequently, and having a designated place for that work can keep your focused and determined. Or maybe you just need a home office to work on your hobbies.

Here are a few tips for making the most of your space, making your home office work for you:

Use Space Wisely-And Creatively

Think of the actual space that you have available in your home, and don't be afraid to rearrange and repurpose any rooms. A corner of your dining area could be sectioned off fairly easily and turned into a great workspace, and there are plenty of creative ways to fit work areas into smaller places:

Storage shelves with a space available as a desk.

Study stations hidden within a closet.

Choose colors and designs you'll love to work with


The first thing you'll want to think about is the location. Of course, you probably have limited options when it comes to this, but you should try to choose a low-traffic area with as much isolation as possible. But if you work best in the thick of the action, go ahead and do the opposite.

Form and Function.

Make sure you consider both form and function. When you're working with a limited space and budget, it's easy to focus in on the most logical and easiest ways to get the job done.  Keep your home office's decor in line with the rest of your home, and don't be afraid to have a little fun.

A Room with a View.

Staring at a blank wall while you're trying to work and get creative juices flowing can be depressing and agitating. If you can, position your desk near a window so that the space feels less claustrophobic. If you can't get it near a window, hang a painting in front of your desk, or position your desk facing outward so that your back is to the wall.


Painting the room a solid, deep color can add an air of sophistication that will be perfect for your office especially if you deal with clients at home.

No matter what, you're the one who's going to be using this space, so create a workspace that will work for you and you'll have a success on your hands.
