Family Friendly Home Office

Thursday, August 9th, 2018

Whether you’re working from home, need a space to dedicate to your crafting, or want to give the kids (or grandkids) a space they can use after they’ve gone back to school, creating a family friendly home office is simple (and fun), and will give you peace of mind all year long.

Furniture

Bookcases are some of the most multi-functional pieces of furniture. They can simply be used for books, but are also great for organization and storage of knick-knacks, essentials, and even games for when it’s time to take a break from work.

A large table – like one you may put in a dining room – is perfect for a family home office, but if you don’t have that much space or don’t need that large of a work space, opt for a flat desk with storage.

There are so many options for office and desk chairs, so figure out what type you feel most comfortable in. Maybe you prefer upholstered with a pillow (and maybe a throw), a typical rolling desk chair, or love the look and feel of a stately Windsor.

Organization

In a home office, shelving and wall organizers are the best way to keep the space clutter free and your stuff within reach. And of course, they offer efficient storage opportunities for you and the kids.

Accessories

Task lighting is essential in a home office, and we recommend something adjustable. When it comes to a table lamp, find one with a small footprint.

Keep your home office stocked with pens, paper, a stapler, a ruler and other functional accessories needed for working at home, school projects or kids’ homework. To balance the serious function, keep a vase of fresh flowers (or seasonal flowers that need little maintenance) and/or fun art in the room as well.
