Your home office is a beautiful place. It’s the space you have for your own private pursuits; the things you really want to do when you manage to get away from your 9 to 5 grind downwards into the hellish nightmare that is the endless black hole of numb, empty existence. The home office is a happy place, where you can do fulfilling and enjoyable work. So why not spend some time considering how to make it a place that really suits your needs?
With modern furniture stores being as cheap and accessible as they are, it’s not too difficult to make a couple of great choices and improve your work space. IKEA has become our go-to for affordable, stylish furniture. But it’s not always that simple; their huge catalogue can make it difficult to find what you’re looking for.
We’ve honed down a list of five things that will make a great addition to your home office or work desk.
The corner workstation is great for a number of reasons. It can fit into unobtrusive areas of your home without taking up too much space. It also gives you a nice, closed space, where you can put your head down and focus on your work.
Cables all over the place are no fun, especially when they roll under the wheels of your office chair. There often seems to be no practical solution that hides the ugly cables and keeps them out of the way. This IKEA cable holder is the perfect solution. Attach it underneath your tabletop and run your cables through its wire tray to keep them out of the way and out of sight.
Storage desks are perfect for space-saving offices. This IKEA desk is great because it has an open end bookcase that allows easy access, rather than the simle drawer system that desks usually employ.
Hip Urban Trestle
Are you trying to create a start-up that makes environmentally-friendly coffee cups from left over pizza boxes? This hip urban trestle desk would be the perfect thing for you. It’s super cool and has plenty of room for collectible Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles plastic toys and other ironic kitsch. It’s also super cheap, at only $99.
A laptop stand gives you a little bit of extra space beside your existing desk. This reduces clutter and allows you to have better workflow and increase your productivity.
A couple of simple additions can really transform your work space. A tidy working area helps you to be more productive, less stressed and happier in general.
