How Best to Choose Furniture for Your New or Expanded Home Office

Despite the craziness of our current COVID-19 stay-at-home recommendations, many people are still working and many of those are working at home. As such, those people may need some new furniture for their home office.

Here are some tips on how to choose furniture for your new or expanded home office.

Look at the Big Picture

By this we mean consider your whole home and try to make your new office furniture still cohesive with the rest of your home, either in style or colour or shape. You probably don’t want to open the door to your office and feel like you landed on another planet.

Use a Professional Design Person to Help

We have some design people on staff, but you could also talk to someone independent. Most interior designers offer short consultations at an hourly rate if you don’t want to hire someone for a big project. They can even do some drawings and show you how different things would work.

Think Multi-Purpose

Even if your office is intended to be your office, most of us never have enough space. That means a small couch could be a pull-out couch for sleeping. Instead of a giant desk with lion’s claw feet, you could have something smaller that folds up into a wall. You can also add furniture for storage of practically anything if it’s behind closed doors.

Think Solid Wood

Wood lasts a very long time, is compatible with all styles of design, can be refinished easily, and it’s an excellent long-term investment. It’s also warm and inviting. It’s perfect for office furniture.
