Create Effective Storage
To create a functional home office it is important to have adequate storage options throughout the space. Both open and closed storage is ideal to have so you are able to easily access items you use the most and the rest can be tucked away. One great way to accomplish this is with built ins. These will allow you to have both closed cabinet storage, as well as open shelving. Another way to create functional storage is with a free standing shelving unit. You can add baskets for the items you wish to be hidden and have the rest open.
Add Personal Touches
Adding personal touches throughout your home office is another great way to create a decorative and functional space. Just because the area is designated for work, does not mean it needs to be dull or boring. Adding items like family photos in frames, artwork, and pieces with your favorite colors throughout the space will create a positive environment for you to happily work in.

Maximize your Lighting
Lighting is important in every room of your home but it is especially important in your home office. No matter what type of work you are doing, good lighting is vital in a workspace. When choosing which room or space to make your home office, choose one with the most natural lighting. The last thing anyone wants to do is work in a dark space. If you do not have the luxury of great natural light in your space, add overhead as well as lamp and task lighting anywhere that you can.
