Turn your spare room into a cosy office space

Regardless of whether you work from home or not, one lovely feature to be able to say that you own, is an office. I personally would love one, at the moment my "office" is the dinner table! Offices can be used for all sorts of things. You might keep your laptop in there, whether you're working, replying to emails, playing games, or even online shopping - it doesn't matter what it is that you're doing, it matters that you have a place to do it in.

Sometimes, we just need an extra space to get away for a while. Maybe there's too much noise, and you need to escape and hide out with your nose in a book or listen to some music. You shouldn't ever feel guilty for that - we're human, and we need time-outs.

There are many ways in which you can furnish your office, but certain things like a desk are a must. Office Monster has a really great selection available online if you are in need of one and don't know where to look. With all of that in mind, below we have put together a few things to consider to make your home office comfortable and functional.

One of the most important things, is that you're comfortable. It's no good sitting on a creaky wooden chair that doesn't allow you to slump in it or relax - that defeats the whole point. So have a look at companies like Chesterfield Sofa Company and find yourself the perfect sofa to sink into without a care in the world. Not only that, but they come in a whole array of different styles, so you can really get in tune with your personality by the kind of seating you opt for.


Choosing a colour depends entirely on what you like, but know that just because your house may be the same shade of beige, doesn't mean that your office has to be the same. This is your chance to break the rules and go wild. If you feel like choosing a lime green - so be it. It all depends on the kind of vibe that you want to create for yourself. If you know the area is going to be your room for peace and downtime, then you may want to opt for some softer or deeper colours, like wine reds and chocolate browns.


A lot of people tend to overlook the floor of a room and focus solely on the walls and where their eyes meet with things. But the flooring is very important because it holds the room together. Do you want a smoothness that comes from wood, or do you prefer a fluffy carpet to dig your toes into? Having said that, you can just as easily have the best of both worlds. You can lay down a nice wooden floor, with the addition of a fluffy rug in the centre of the room. If you're feeling really clever, you can match the colour of the rug to the rest of the colour scheme you have chosen.

So now you have a few basic ideas, have a think about what else you'd like to add.
