The perfect study can be the difference between fantastic productivity and wasteful procrastination, so you can’t afford to get it wrong!
Creating a space that is not only fit for work but also aesthetically pleasing doesn’t have to be as difficult as it sounds, if you follow a few simple rules and seek to include certain key elements. Take a look at our ideas and see if they inspire you to create your perfect home study!
CHILL OUT AREA
As important as productivity is, having somewhere to chill out and take valuable screen breaks is just as vital. Without this, your study can quickly become a space that you dread working in, or even see as a room that makes you feel stressed. Combat that with some well placed comfy furniture, like the beanbags seen here and remember that your office can be a place for fun as well as work!
Creating a pleasant work environment can be as simple as choosing the right colour for your walls and this pastel lemon is not only calming but also beautiful. Avoiding dark colours allows your study to feel light, airy and conducive to productive days, not to mention the fact that decorating options are vast! We could picture a lot of stunning shabby chic furniture in this office, helping to really tie the pastel theme together.
Of course, any study has to have one thing and that’s a desk. Without it, you will just have a room with a few shelves in and no place to sit and actually work! In a dedicated office space you can afford to be bold with your choice of desk and we think that bigger is better, allowing you to spread your workload out and really take stock of what you’re doing. This is a great example, with the desk taking up the full width of the room and really making the most of the available space, with floating shelves installed above.
No study would be complete without some amazing storage in place and a corner bookcase really is the best of the best! Taking up what could otherwise be dead space, a corner unit allows for an attractive and practical addition to help streamline and declutter your office. We love the idea of choosing one that is a bit funky too, or up cycling one yourself!
