It’s been a little over a year since I started working from home, and setting up a productive home office space was quite the challenge. Now, it is finally time to share with you all a complete home office reveal. By the end of last October, about two months into my job, my home office was set up with most the essentials. But, in the spring, we replaced almost all of the flooring in our home and that put a hault on my decorating.
Fast forward, and just recently, it all came together when I found a few things I had been searching for for a long time. One of those things was a a rug to separate the office space from the bedroom space. Since the home office doubles as our guest bedroom, finding a rug that didn’t overpower the room and a desk with plenty of storage options were key. I also wanted a desk that would conceal the printer, and I had no idea how much that criteria would narrow down the options.
Thankfully, I recently found a faux cowhide rug for under $100 that was perfect to finish the space. It works so well with the L-shaped desk we got last year. The shape of this desk has been a lifesaver on the storage front and it’s surprisingly affordable! I have loved all the drawers, room for baskets, and hidden printer/scanner spot even more than I imagined. It makes keeping my desk organized and uncluttered so easy.
A lot of the pieces I found for the home office came from Amazon. It took me a while to find storage baskets that were the right size for the inner shelf and also looked nice. Eventually, I found water hyacinth ones that I LOVE. They’re great quality and very sturdy for heavy office supplies. The wire baskets on the outside shelf were a surprise find at Michaels that I use for stationery boxes and our CD collection.
Here are links to all my home office essentials:
Now, that you have seen the space where I work at home, stay tuned for next week’s post! I’ll share my honest thoughts about what working from home is really like. If you work from home, have a friend or family member who does, or if you have ever thought about working from home, next week’s post will give you some valuable insight.
I would love to hear from those of you who have a home office or work from home, too. How have you established a productive work space and what the experience has been like for you? Let’s chat in the comments!
