If you are lucky enough to work from home, running a business or telecommuting, you will have a home office. Whether your office is lacking style, looking a little worse for wear or is in a serious mess, you might be thinking about giving it an update.   If this is the case, and you want to update your home office, you may be feeling a little stuck when it comes to ideas. However, there is no need to worry, as that is where I come in. I know what it’s like to struggle to design an awesome home office, which is why I decided to share my design ideas with you. 6

  To help you give your home office an update, I have put together five fantastic design tips for your office, below:  
  1. Swap the carpet for wooden floors

  If your office has carpet, consider swapping it for wooden flooring. Yes, carpet might be warm and cozy, but it isn’t the most stylish of features. Plus, one cup of knocked over coffee can ruin a carpet, making your office look grubby.   That’s why when it comes to updating your office, swapping your carpet for wooden flooring is a must. Or, if wooden flooring is too expensive, laminate or Amtico flooring are also good options to consider.  
  1. Stick to a simple color scheme

  Instead of trying to make your office overly bright, opt for a simple color scheme. Even though you work from home, your office should still look and feel like a professional area. This is especially important if you have clients or potential clients coming for meetings in your home office.   Personally, I always prefer a monochrome color scheme to anything else. The simple colors of a monochrome color scheme - black and white, are ideal for adding style and professionalism to any space. Plus, using these colors makes it much easier to add accessories to the room, as these colors go well with all styles.  
  1. Invest in the perfect desk

  When it comes to choosing a desk for your home office, this is a very personal decision. You see, the type of desk that you will need will depend on the work that you do.   For instance, if you work online on the computer, you will need a desk that has enough room for a computer, as well as anything else that you need. However, if you work in design, you will need a larger desk, as you may need room for two computers or for sketching out designs and ideas.   When it comes to choosing the perfect desk for your office, choose a desk that’s style and color works well with your offices style. If you want an office that is stylish, this is incredibly important. It’s also important to take into account the size and shape of the desk so that you pick a design that is suitable for your work.  
  1. Add wall art

  A simple but effective way to add style to your office is by investing in wall art for the room. It’s amazing how adding a couple of pieces of wall art to a room can completely change the look and style of the space.   My personal favorite style of wall art for my office is canvas pop art - it’s unique, stylish and eye catching. I just love the difference these amazing pieces add to my office space. While I love pop art pieces, it’s up to you what type of wall art you want for your office.  
  1. Choose stylish lighting

  The last thing that I would suggest when it comes to updating your home office is to opt for stylish lighting fixtures. As well as investing in a stylish overhead lamp shade, it’s also important to choose a stylish desk light.   At the moment, one of the most popular desk light designs is the vintage style desk lamps. These look great in most office spaces, as they work well with almost any design style.   Giving your office an update doesn’t have to be hard, all you need to do is follow my simple tips and ideas, above.
