Minimalist Home Office
With working from home becoming the “new normal” for many this year, it has meant creating DIY working areas in the kitchen, living room and even bedrooms. Designing a minimalist home office space has never been more popular! If you haven’t already seen our blog post on How to Make Your Room Look Good for Zoom – we highly recommend that you do! Many of the points mentioned coincide with the pointers within this Shop The Look feature.
How to Recognize a Minimalist Home Office
A minimalist home office is easily recognized as being modern, contemporary, and minimal with the amount of furniture and accessories used. Sourcing a small desk that complements other furniture pieces and finishes used in the room helps to tie everything together so the design is cohesive. White, black or wood finishes are popular for home office spaces as they go well with almost all color schemes.
In a world that is now shifting to more remote working, creating a home office environment is crucial. For those who have limited space at home, the minimalist home office approach will help immensely. Adding a small desk area to the corner or side of a living room or bedroom has been quite popular this year and it’s important to use accessories or finishes that reflect your personality and promote productivity. Keeping the finishes to the desk and chair helps to focus attention on the work at hand.
Above all, a minimalist home office space shouldn’t feel overwhelming or as if the furniture is taking up the majority of the space available. It should be extremely functional while keeping furniture elements to a minimum.
This style often includes:
- Minimal or small desk
- Decorative picture shelves or wall hung prints
- Simple and few accessories
