Everyone has ideas of how they’d like to use the rooms in their house – maybe it’s an entertainment room, a library, a guest suite for visitors or maybe just somewhere to relax with a book or a crossword. Life has a tendency to take over and before you know it, those ideas fade away and before we know it, we’ve completely forgotten about our original intentions.
It’s time to revisit those plans – you’ve always wanted to do something with that spare room, now it’s time to clear out the clutter and create your own office or study.
The great thing about creating your ideal office or study is you’ll have the added home comforts you wouldn’t normally have at work or similar places. You can catch up on paperwork and head downstairs to have a decent snack and a coffee. You can catch up on your favourite novel or read the broadsheets and then water the plants or catch up on who’s ahead in the cricket.
The best way to start is to work from as clear a space as possible. If the room you plan to use is full of boxes and clutter then be brave – if it’s no longer used then give it away or sell it. Don’t be precious with things that aren’t used regularly or hold sentimental value – that old plug you’ve been holding onto needs to go; you’re never going to use it.
Do some research around how other people have created their own home offices and studies – there’s a lot of great tips from people who have gone down the same road and they might have some clever tricks to share and also some pitfalls to avoid.
The main thing to remember is you need to put your stamp on it. Do you want an oak desk with a sturdy chair that can divot in every conceivable direction? Maybe you want a heater for that additional warmth in the colder months? Why not install a small fridge to keep your drinks and snacks cool?
