More people than ever are working from home. And whether that amounts to catching up on email after hours or running an Etsy business full time, your home office has to be functional and work for you—but that doesn’t mean it has to be sad, soulless and boring!
Put a little thought into it and a home workspace can boost focus, productivity and set the stage for inspiration. In fact, studies have shown that well-designed offices can even make us happy.
It doesn’t matter whether your home office is a tiny nook in your bedroom or a sunlit space out of Dwell, a few creative touches can go a long way toward making it a place you want to be so when the big idea hits, you are ready (even though you might still be in your PJs).
Here are some items that will help make your home workspace productive and inspiring.
