If you are planning on going minimalist with your home but couldn’t afford the time to redecorate and declutter your whole house, then choose only one area to redecorate, or at least start from there. And if you are having trouble choosing among the kitchen, living room, or bedroom, the best choice to start with on your minimalist journey is your home office. It is no doubt that a clean, uncluttered, and organized workspace results in great concentration, uninterrupted workflow, and productivity. Little to no clutter in our workstation leaves our minds uncluttered as well. Moreover, it is always easier to find documents, files, tools, and equipment when your things are well-organized and neatly stacked inside cabinets or drawers. Plus, searching becomes a whole lot faster too. It’s like you’re searching through your computer software –you know exactly where to go for a specific file. See this list for some minimalist ideas you can adopt for your cozy home office make over.
Remember that spot where all the light in your home shines brightly upon? Turn that awkward nook into an ultra-modern home office! Paint the interiors all white to make it appear bigger than it actually is. Let the glass over your window let in an ample natural lighting, giving the vibe of a refreshing day office. To make it even better, you can attach office-style cabinets above your desk and onto your wall, presented in smooth facings, shelf desk, and mobile seats. Who wouldn’t be energized working from home under the cozy natural lights permeating your glass window? And if it's too much, you can always add a light-colored curtain to accentuate the room and diffuse sunlight.
Choose the area of your room nearest to the balcony and place your home office desk there, facing outward to the bright blue skyline. The ample natural light alone provides a refreshing feeling that makes you invigorated to start the day well. Place a divider cabinet or storage shelving that is wide enough to separate your home office nook from the rest of the house, and it’ll surely look like those executive offices from Hollywood films. Work with an amazing view of the cityscape (better if you live on a higher floor) while sipping all the goodness of your morning coffee.
Your home office doesn’t have to be grand and all. You don’t need an extra space either to create your own office nook. Maximize the space that you have at home and let your imagination and creativity do its wonders. The most popular modern home office designs just need to be small and efficient. Turn a corner of your living room area into a home office by building or attaching a cabinet or shelving storage right to the wall. Here, you’ll have a cozy minimalist office that is easily accessible as it sits right next to your living room, kitchen, and even the front door.
