Top Tips: How to work in style from home
Don’t Sacrifice Form for Function
Lead Designer and Kitchen and Bath World President, Sara Bovee Hines said, “Using custom cabinetry in a home office is much like a custom closet, kitchen or bath design, where every element of your organization and style preferences can be met.”
A custom designed home office should complement other rooms in your house. If your home has traditional decor, painted furniture and soft, comfy chairs or a loveseat are ideal if you have the space. A contemporary home office can feature artistic pieces or modern metal furniture.
Paint the Walls a Color You Love
Organize Vertically and Horizontally
Custom shelves or organizers can help get papers and office equipment off the desk, while keeping important papers within arm’s reach.
Are you a stacker or a filer? If you tend to make piles, tame your mail, notes and papers. If you prefer a clean desktop, designate one drawer for your “to-do” papers. Wooden or metal cube accent storage is also a unique alternative to use on bookshelves, since they can act as a screen to hide clutter while keeping items close and accessible.
