Nowadays, more and more people work completely remote or at least do some of their work at home. It may seem that a home office is not the place where you can be productive. However, thousands of freelancers might prove you wrong. No matter where are you working – at home or an office, you must have a productive environment. And while an office can provide you with all that, at home, you must create it yourself.
But don’t be scared! It’s not that hard as it looks. We have collected some great and simple ideas for decorating your space into a minimalist Scandinavian home office. You don’t need to invest a lot of money and buy fancy and expensive furniture. All you need is some clever ideas that will ensure comfort during your working hours. Let’s take a look.
Repaint the walls
White is one of the most dominant colors in Scandinavian interiors. So, if you want to give your home office that feels, repaint your walls white. It’s not an expensive thing to do, and you can easily do it yourself over the weekend.
Bring more natural light into your home office
All Scandinavian interiors have one thing in common – lots of natural daylight. That’s because the days there are shorter, and people try to get as much as possible of the sunlight. So, make sure your home office has at least one window and uncover it from any excess stuff. However, if you don’t have much natural light, invest in a desk lamp that will provide you with the needed light.
Remove unnecessary things
As simple as it sounds – to create a minimalist environment, you will need to get rid of most of the stuff that may distract you. Put all the things you don’t need for your work away. Empty your desk from pens, papers, and other things.
Add decor elements
Put some plants in pots all over the place. They will not only give the coziness to your workplace but will also purify the air. Also, hang pictures that contain neutral pastel colors on the walls. You can also add some small elements such as boxes that will help you organize your things. But we recommend you to have as little stuff on your desk as possible. Be sure that all of your decor elements match up with the walls, floors, and the furniture.
Invest in minimalist furniture
It is probably the most expensive tip, but it will not only embellish your workspace but will also boost your productivity. Because if you are sitting on an uncomfortable chair, you won’t be able to sit in it for a long time. Thus, your productivity will fall. A high-quality chair and office desk are a must for a perfect Scandinavian and any other home office.
