Whether it represents your main working space or a secondary location, a home office is becoming more and more of a necessity these days. Setting up one is not the easiest thing though. Between limited available space, noise, storage dilemmas etc. the task is not obvious and the result often turns out awkward and unpractical.

In this e-book, we will analyze all the aspects to consider when setting up a home office. From lighting and ergonomics to décor, you will get a complete overview of the ingredients of a functional, healthy, comfortable and beautiful home office.

Lastly, the “Your home office” chapter will guide you through planning your own home office. You can either come to it after you’ve read the entire e-book or print those pages beforehand and make your notes while you read.

Let’s get started!

Space layout

Where to place your home office is for sure the very first decision to be taken.

As a general rule, there are 3 possible home office setups:

Shared space eg. the kitchen tableDedicated space in another area of the home eg. a desk in the living roomDedicated room

The choice will be dictated by several factors such as the amount of space you need to do your work, the amount of storage you need, how often and how long you will be working from home and – obviously – the available space.

It’s not always easy to figure out where to position a home office, especially in an already built and furnished home. There are some places though, that you may be overlooking and that could be a good option for you and your space:

On the staircase landing

In the entryway

In a corner (literally)

In a wall niche

Inside a wardrobe

Below a staircase

Integrated in a built-in

If instead you’re going to devote a full room to your home office, you clearly have more freedom. Being behind closed doors, your home office could even slightly depart from the overall style of your home and be the occasion to try something special.

To make the design more impactful, try placing your desk in the middle of the room or on an angle.

Wallpaper and paint can also help to give character to the space. And if your room is small, covering an entire wall with mirrors (or having a giant mirror leaning on the wall) will make the space feel a lot bigger. Be careful when placing the mirror though, as its reflections may become an unwanted source of glare.

The desk is for sure one of the main ingredients of an office.

Whether you are going to work from the kitchen table or you’ll have a dedicated desk, there are some things to consider to make your workspace functional and ergonomic. It all starts by defining what is appropriate to your needs in terms of:

Work surfaceDesk height

Work Surface

How big of a desk you need is an important decision to take upfront, as a wrong choice will immediately make your office way less functional for your needs.

Things to consider:
