Transform Unused Space into a Home Office

Investing in a personal home office is an invaluable addition that can be made to any home. If you’re fortunate enough to have a room dedicated to an office or study, then you’re already one step ahead of the game. Otherwise, materializing an office in your space requires a combination of creative thinking, hard work, and of course home office furniture. Here at Jerusalem Furniture in Bensalem, PA, we can help you with the creative thinking and supply you with the office furniture, but you’ll have to bring your own hard work. We’ve broken everything down to four simple steps:

Step #1 – Make Room for Your New Office Furniture

First things first—take stock of your living space and what you have in it. Is there a corner in the living room that’s only being used to display an old guitar that’s out of tune? Do you have a partially-filled closet that you could consolidate into another closet or wardrobe? Do you have floor space that’s currently unoccupied, an area you never quite knew what to do with? Maybe you have an attic or a basement that’s only being used for storing junk you rarely use. Wherever there is extra space, it is perfect for your home office furniture.

Step #2 – Measure for an Office Desk

Once you have decided where you want your office, the next step is to determine how much space you have available, so get out your tape measure and start jotting down numbers. Lately, interior design circles have been favoring the classic hardwood writing table as the go-to office desk, due to their naturally-occurring economy of style. Their neutral forms and universal appeal make them ideally suited for any home’s design scheme.

Step #3 – Select an Appropriate Office Chair

Remember in school getting in trouble for slouching in your seat? That’s because proper posture helps to keep you alert and productive. Select a strong, comfortable office chair that you won’t mind sitting in for a few hours at a time while you get to work. Choose from a number of upholstery options, such as faux leather or fabric. In keeping with the simplicity theme, a white faux leather swivel chair makes a perfect pairing to the writing table we picked out.

Step #4 –Consider Home Office Storage Solutions

There’s nothing worse than rummaging through stacks of disorganized papers to find a document, receipt, or memo that you swore was right there. Nip that in the bud with a formal and functional filing cabinet. Search for one that has a similar—if not identical—wood stain as your writing desk, for seamless integration with the rest of your home office furnishings.
