If you’re a parent that works from home, the chances are that right now, you’re working from your living room or kitchen table. While there’s nothing wrong with this, it can be nice to have your own space for working in. If you’ve got a spare room, that could be the ideal space. Or, if you don’t have a spare room, how about transforming a corner of your bedroom into a home office? Your bedroom might sound like a strange place to work, but believe it or not; it could be ideal.
Does the idea of creating a beautiful bedroom / home office appeal to you? If so, you’re in the right place. Below, we’re about to share plenty of tips, ideas and inspiration, for creating an amazing working area.
Let’s talk colour schemes
Think of creating a bedroom / working area like designing a shared room for your kids. The space needs to be split in some way but also work well as one room. The key to success is splitting the room with two separate colour schemes, to give the illusion of two separate spaces. That being said, ideally the two colour schemes should work well together and not clash. So, for example, your bedroom area could be decorated in rose gold hues while your office area could incorporate a marble colour scheme. These are two colour schemes that work well together and separately, which is what makes them so ideal.
What about furniture?
Once again, each side of the room should have its own distinct style. The furniture for your bedroom area should be one style while the pieces for your working area should be another. For your bedroom chest of drawers and bedside table, opt for designs that come with soft close drawer slides. While for your office storage units, pick a design that has strong drawer slides. So no matter how much you store in them, they won’t get damaged or break. When it comes to furniture, it’s important to remember that longevity is crucial. That’s why it’s important to take things, like the quality of the hinges or slides, into account.
How to pull the whole space together
What’s the key to pulling the whole space together? A few well thought out accessories, of course. While the two sides of the room should remain separate in their styles, it can work well to dot around a few similar accessories. Simple things like hanging up art prints that match in some way, and adding the same cushions to the bed as on your desk chair are all it takes. It’s important that as well as looking like two separate spaces, the areas of your bedroom are also similar.
So there you have it, everything that you need to know about designing a beautiful bedroom / working area. Take the above tips and ideas on board and you can create an amazing space. It’s just a case of taking the time to get some inspiration and see what will work for you.
