My husband always prides on his man cave at home in which you will find all things aviation, gaming, and all his tech stuff also known as his “home office” to which now my boys have chosen to call their bedrooms their mini-man-caves. With two boys and a husband I’m outnumbered in this house and it was time to have my own space. And so this mama ambushed the kids playroom and turned it into a studio. The bigger dream is a she shed but for now this room will do! And having a space dedicated to my content creation has been incredible for my creative outlet. In addition to my studio I have also created a small nook right in my bedroom where I’ll sit and write my articles and work on my blog it’s my home office space.
My top priority was turning this home office space into an aesthetically pleasing, cozy, functional nook. Any area more significant than what I have now would have turned into a junk zone! For example, the kitchen desk, the kids draw there, do their homework there, paint there, and that’s my space for bills! Instead, when working on my creative content, I’d rather not be in a stress-giving environment and more of a relaxed, cozy corner. So today, I’m sharing six tips for creating a stress-free and functional home office space.
6 Tips to a Stress-Free & Functional Home Office
1.) Choose a space near a window for outdoor light. Sunlight or daylight brightens and helps you keep track of time for frequent healthy breaks.
2.) Add a small plant to your home office space; this helps to keep your environment fresh. Plants do more behind the scenes than meets the eye. These succulents are low maintenance and add an aesthetic touch to your home office.
3.) Choose comfortable office furniture with drawers for storing pens and knickknacks. Here’s my desk at home in my bedroom.
4.) Have your basic home office supplies at all times. This home office supply kit on amazon is fantastic!
5.) Add a few favorite books and pictures to your space. These add a personal touch to your area.
6.) Include a mood board or a bulletin board in your space to help put ideas to vision.
These tips help you create a home office nook of your own so you can be creative and bring your visions to fruition because there is a visionary in all of us. And if you’re having difficulty finding that creativity within you for whatever reason, start journaling. Here is a peek into my journal to help you get started.
