Whether you have a work-from-home job or you go to an office, you still surely want to decorate your home office desk. For a couple of months, I’ve been using my dining table as my work desk. I rarely use that space, anyway. Then, last year, I finally bought a desk to be placed in my bedroom. I’ve been wanting to decorate my desk, and make my apartment homey. I have a few desk ideas and photos that inspired me, so let’s see how my home office desk would look like.
In the meantime, here are 6 home office decorating ideas that will definitely boost your productivity and creativity!
6 home office desk ideas
I could probably add pegboards in every corner of my apartment… just kidding! But you get how easy it is to customize pegboards and organize your stuff. Plus, it makes a good decor in your room too! I’m only renting my apartment—and my landlord doesn’t want me to hang things or drill in the wall—I can still put a pegboard on my desk, thanks to this connector. I can easily connect my table and pegboard! Pegboards make the desk clean because you won’t have too much clatter on it.
Wall Grid Panel or corkboard
If you don’t prefer using a pegboard, then a grid panel or corkboard can be the perfect alternative! Just don’t forget to add a touch of mint green or rose gold bulldog clips to add color to your grid panel.
Not only for aesthetics, but adding a lamp helps eliminate eye strain from using too much computer. You just need to find the perfect lamp, and a cute lamp! In my case, my room depends on the natural lighting, so the lighting gets worse especially during winter.
I could list down all the reasons why you should add indoor plants in your home office desk. One of the reasons why I like adding plants is because it helps reduce stress and increase productivity. You don’t have to add plants you’re not comfortable with, you can start by adding succulents since those are low-maintenance. I don’t have a green thumb, but, so far, my succulents are still in good shape!
You don’t have enough space for the plants? Check this out and see how the plants are added on a pegboard or wall grid panel.
Wall art or favorite photos
We all need inspirations to keep us going! There are also memories that we don’t want to forget. Add a few photos or wall arts on your home office desk by either hanging it on the wall (or adding in pegboard, wall grid panel or corkboard 😉) or putting it against the wall. I personally think that adding these could also show your personality, so be creative and add it to your desk!
If there’s one thing that I couldn’t miss on my desk, it’s my planner. Although it’s good to keep things digitally, nothing beats writing in a planner. I have a monthly planner that I will soon hang on my wall. It’s easier to get an overview of what’s going to happen in a few days, weeks or months with a paper planner. Plus, it makes me feel more organized as well.
