8 Best Ways To Decorate A Small Home Office

Working from home has fast become the norm in 2023, and we find it the perfect excuse to invest in your space and comfort by designing your ideal workspace to enable you to have that perfect work-life balance. 

While not commuting into your big city job has its benefits, it may mean that space at home is a little limited. Let's face it, London homes aren't getting any wider. So, how can you decorate a small office? The good news is with clever design, you can convert anywhere in your home from a spare room to an understairs nook to become a dedicated and private workspace to enable you to work comfortably.

It's no surprise that art positively improves productivity, with leading scientists conducting experiments proving the benefits of adding art to a space. So, how can you achieve the look while reaping all the rewards for your performance and wellbeing? Learn how in our free guide to decorating a small office at home.

Add Calming Seascapes

Make A Bold Statement

Large, bold abstract art adds an ultra modern touch to any space. Home offices can benefit with large modern abstract art to add spontaneity and create a more creative and collaborative culture, which is ideal when working away from home.

Choose Neutral Shades

To achieve a monochromatic look, you can add neutral toned wall art to compliment your space and look. This palette is a good tip if you're going to be using your home office as a mixed-use room, such as living room office, or bedroom office, enabling two schemes and functions to blend easily.

Japandi interiors have been a popular design scheme for some years now, edging on Scandinavian and Danish designs which focus on a more minimal interior scheme. Neutral tones are the perfect accompaniment for this colour scheme, adding that touch of luxe to areas with white boucle sofas and armchairs.

Black and white design schemes keep it classic, while also drawing the eye in so the focus is less on the scale of the space. Monochrome art adds elegance to any space, no matter it's size.
