If you want to incorporate a home office in your >new Parry Custom home, the size of the room isn’t the most important thing. You can create an efficient, custom-tailored office even in a small space. A sleek home office is the ability to mix organization and design. Here are some pointers for setting up and furnishing a home office in your Parry home that is comfortable, functional and inspiring.
The Desk. When you think of a traditional office desk, you typically have a file cabinet and keyboard tray, but to fit your décor and style, you may choose a less expensive version. A simple wood table will add character and originality to your office.
The Chair. If you are planning long hours of sitting, you may look for a well-padded ergonomic chair. If you only going to use the space occasionally, you may look for an upholstered chair or elegant bamboo chair that brings texture to your room.
Lighting. Good lighting is an important part of any home office. Use several lamps in the room. Task lighting offers focused light, while a table or floor lamp will create a warm, ambient glow in the room.
Shelves. Bookcases or shelving will keep our space neat, orderly and clutter free. Consider storage boxes to organize your paperwork or look for fabric or woven boxes to add color and create additional storage. In addition to being utilitarian, open shelves also provide a way to personalize your office with accessories, photos and mementos.
Bulletin Board. Ribbon and pin boards are terrific for displaying things you need and they keep the items in plain sight yet in a decorative fashion.
Furniture Placement. Position your desk first in a way to maximize the space in the room, ideally with a view to the door. Use a rug to anchor the desk in the room and think of positioning a small table or cabinet behind the desk. By placing a lamp or two behind the desk will look stylish and add symmetry to the room. Another option would be tiered cabinets. They can offer much needed storage. If the space allows, add a second chair along with a reading light. Add wall art, accessories and photos to warm the space and make it your own.
With a little imagination, a few basics and the desire to get organized you are on your way to styling your office space in your new Parry home.
