Home Office Furniture at Star Furniture

We can’t always keep our work life and home life separate, but we can help make it more manageable. Designing the perfect home office can help keep you comfortable, focused, and productive when you need to work from home. Here are some of our favorite home office ideas from the interior designers at Star Furniture:

Choose the Right Desk Type

There are several different desk styles to consider when furnishing your home office. From elaborate executive desks to simple writing desks, Star Furniture has a variety of office furniture to fit every lifestyle. The style you choose is ultimately up to your personal taste and its ability to fit the existing décor. You’ll also want to make sure the desk fits your functional needs as well: Do you need built-in storage? Is it durable enough for your work?

Make Sure the Seating is Just Right

A comfortable office chair can make all the difference in a productive work day! When you visit a Star Furniture store in Texas, you can try out our different office chairs and choose the one that best fits your office style, price range, and comfort level. Don’t forget to inspect the height of your chair vs the clearance under your desk—your seating should be low enough that your feet comfortably reach the ground, but not too high where your knees hit the bottom.

Don’t Skimp on Storage

Not all work spaces are created equal. If you want to stay productive, it’s important that your home office is designed with storage in mind. Prioritize organization by purchasing bookcases, file cabinets, credenzas, and other storage cabinets to keep your office free of clutter.

Go Easy on the Eyes

When you’re designing your home office, you’ll want to go easy on the eyes. In addition to picking out light kits and desk lamps to complement the overhead and natural lighting in your office, consider the placement of digital displays so they’re close enough to see without straining your eyes, and choose a color palette that brightens the room.

Don’t Lose Your Personal Style

Your home office décor doesn’t have to be drab. When you’re designing your home office, keep your personal style in mind, and choose accent pieces and area rugs that help showcase your distinct personality.
