A decorated home office can significantly improve your mood and be a source of happiness and comfort all day. Just like any other room in your house, your home office needs to reek of aesthetic appeal and comfort. It’s the only way you will ever like it enough to spend 8-9 hours daily.
Therefore, we have gathered a few of the best contemporary home office decor tips to help you get started on the decoration process.
Choose your favorite lights
It is no secret that good lighting completely transforms a room. However, it is also essential to choose lighting that you personally like. For example, some people like the bright accentuating glow of white light while others prefer the warm subtle feel of yellow light.
Choose the type of light that pleases you. Use white or yellow light in lamps surrounding your home office or add in a soft glow in your ceiling by lining it with fairy lights. This way you can enjoy a soft glow around your ceiling that you can keep on while you aren’t at your desk but perhaps sitting around pondering over something.
A sleek desk is a must buy
A sleek desk is all of these and more as it holds the essentials such as your laptop, a few notebooks and stationary but doesn’t overdo it. No matter what color the desk is, make sure it is a sleek fine modern ensemble that gives your home office a de-cluttered look.
Art adds to the appeal
If you aren’t into paintings, you can add a sculpture or a framed quote to your wall. The idea is to add a piece of yourself to the room, something that aesthetically pleases you and makes you feel at home.
Bean bags are best
Your home office should be super comfortable and adding bean bags to it may give the right effect. For the most part, they are affordable and can easily fit into a compact space. You can choose black and white bean bags to go with everything and still give your home office a posh, sophisticated look. You can also choose colorful bean bags to inject color into the setting. Either way, the bean bag color scheme should go with the rest of your furniture.
Rugs look ravishing
Either go for a contrasting color or choose a neutral tone like white, black, beige, or gray that can go with nearly all of your accessories. If many of your furniture pieces are colorful, then your rug should be a color that is less used in the room. Try not to match too much because a highly color-coordinated setting isn’t very appealing either.Either go for a contrasting color or choose a neutral tone like white, black, beige, or gray that can go with nearly all of your accessories.

Wallpaper is in
Something too bright or too loud can affect your concentration in office and may also look a bit out of place, since this room is essentially a workplace.
Desk accessories are essential
Well, they are essential if you like them but in order to give your desk a bit of a boost, you might want to add a few small things to it besides your laptop and some paper. You can add a picture frame, pen/pencil holder, a really cool paperweight, or a few extras to decorate it. However, don’t overfill it, just add a few selective pieces to give it the right touch.
The corners of your room can be utilized to add a bit of pizzazz. However, if you add something in the corners, try to keep the rest of the room a bit neutral or use a softer hue. You can add long vases in the corners or fill it up with real plants. You can also add decoration tables in the corners and put up some decoration items on it or add picture frames, awards, quotes, or whatever you like.
You may also want to add a coffee area in your home office and place it in one of the corners. Make sure you don’t sprawl out coffee things everywhere and make a mess in the home office you have spent so much time trying to decorate properly.
Mirrors are magical
You may think mirrors are best for an area which is not your home office because, why would you need a mirror there, right? However, mirrors can make a room look larger. You can add a small decorative mirror on one of your walls or you can use a glass painting to give your office a more versatile and interesting look.
Glasswork on a wall with a light shining from above can look absolutely stunning and is a definite energy booster. Add at least one glass piece in your home office and you will have a stunner.
Backrests must be beautiful
Add a backrest to your office chair and choose one which is beautiful rather than bland. Don’t choose a regular gray or black one, but go for something better and more appealing. Make sure its soft, easy to use, affordable if that’s a priority, and of course adds a wide smile to your face.
With that final detail, you can have an amazing home office. Remember to mix and match, try the old with the new, and add a personal touch. That’s the key to great decoration.
