5 Ways to Improve Your Home Office

As anyone who works from home knows, the home office is one of the most important spaces in the house. Unfortunately, it often suffers from mild neglect, with mismatching furniture, large (unused) workout equipment and piles of laundry taking up most of the space.


However, according to the principles of Feng shui, keeping an orderly and calm workspace actually make us more productive.


Isn’t it time you sorted out your home workspace?


Here are some tips to get you started:


  • Address the lighting – Yes, you might have an overhead light already, but why not ramp up the ambience factor with some strategically placed lamps. Lighting can have a huge impact on the way a space feels, making it feel much more welcoming and cosy.
  • Choose colour scheme wisely – colours can have a huge impact on our ability to concentrate so make sure you do some research before you decorate. Greens and yellows are known for promoting productivity while reds and oranges are supposed to be rather distracting.
  • Upgrade your office chair – office chairs don’t even look good in offices, so unless you need one for specific back support, think about upgrading to a beautifully elegant dining chair instead.
  • Stimulate the senses – using an essential oil diffuser is a great way to stimulate your brain, peppermint and eucalyptus, in particular, are known for their concentration-enhancing properties.   
  • Bring life to your desk – pot plants not only look great but they also purify the air around you, so keep one on your desk for a breath of fresh air!


We can’t promise that these tips will make you work harder, but they will at least give you an Instagram-worthy office space!
