The perfect desk. The perfect wall color. The perfect chair. The perfect storage and organization solutions. If you're not already noticing the increasing buzz about creating a home office, it will soon be hard to miss.
Before the beautiful images start pulling you in, creating that urge to impulsively purchase, think about what you need. Your needs are as unique and personal as your fingerprint. If you need a home office space, observe your actions now and take notes. Plan. Dream. Imagine.
Start a daily log in a simple notebook and as you go through your days over the next few weeks, write down your needs. Can your needs be met with items you already own? Think creatively. Maybe a kitchen cabinet can be reorganized to store work supplies. Or storage intended for shoes can be re-purposed for papers or files.
Then think about what you want and how you want your space to look and feel. What would make your work space better, inspiring, or more enjoyable for you?
