Home Office Furniture

As more and more people find themselves working out of their homes, home office furniture and shelving is becoming very popular. It's not enough, anymmore, to set up a table in an unused corner and call it an office. The problem is finding pieces that meet your needs as office furniture, but doesn't make the house look too much like an office.

Here's the problem. Offices tend to be impersonal places, where you don't care about a stack of papers on the desk or a corkboard filled with notes on the wall. Also, all of the office stuff tends to fill up the office, which you don't really care about because you don't live there, and you are pretty happy to leave behind when the day is over.

Home is completely different. On the one hand, you need a conducive and professional environment in order to work well. On the other hand, you don't want your home to feel like an office. The best way to find this balance is to furnish your home with enough in order to organize your work, but not to overdo it or use really industrial-sized furniture.

Planning Your Home Office

When planning your home office consider how much space you'll need, and, more importantly, what kind of space you'll need. Lots of home office shelving is great, but not specific. You should take a good look at all of the things that are going into this office, and then you can come up with a plan of what exactly you'll need. You'll need to take into account:

  • Home office shelving
  • Files
  • Office equipment
  • Computers and printers
  • Fax machine
  • Office chair
  • Desk space
  • Garbage can and other floor-standing items
