Tip 1: Get a chair that is upholstered and comfortable to sit in instead of the typical office chair.

Tip 2: I always have fresh flowers on my desk. It brightens the spirit and makes me feel not as cooped up inside. If you don’t want to worry about always getting fresh flowers, get an orchid that will last.

Tip 3: Make use of the walls as workspaces – try adding whiteboard or chalkboard walls.

Tip 4: My favorite tip for a home office is to paint the trim dark or black. It really changes the whole feel of the room and is easy and inexpensive to do. Plus it sets the study off as something different than a bedroom.

Tip 5: If building, don’t forget the floor plugs in the home offices! It looks great to place a desk in the middle of the room but doesn’t look so nice to have to run wires from a computer out to the wall.
