One of the most widespread concerns that has brought this 2022 for many professionals, is the need to have a space at home for home office. Regardless of what the future holds, the trend of working from home is here to stay, so if you continue to do your activities in an improvised space, it is time to take seriously the project of creating a harmonious and comfortable environment to continue enjoying your work.
Virtually any small corner of the house can be used as a personal office if you take the time to adapt it, but do not forget that the aesthetic and visual element is also essential for the mood. That’s why today we bring you 4 economical and functional decorating ideas for your home office.
1.- Cork walls
Cork is a very versatile, inexpensive material that looks great. As if that wasn’t enough, it is an acoustic and thermal insulator, it is easy to change and with some tacks you can turn it into a panel to put your reminders, pending bills and drawings of your little ones.
In home improvement stores you can find rectangular pieces of cork that you can install yourself on a whole wall or in the space of your choice. Just make sure that the wall where you are going to put them does not have a smooth coating, but a rough one, so that you can adhere them with any white or yellow high-strength glue.
2.- Glass block
If you want to take advantage of natural light to keep your home office well lit, and at the same time to delimit the space to keep it free of distractions, the glass block is a material that you will love.
Glass block pieces come in different colors, opacity levels and textures. The best way to find the one that best suits your tastes is to order them online, and you can either install them yourself by following the instructions carefully, or call in a professional. In any case, it is something that is ready in one or two days.
3.- Cement mosaic
If the corner you have for your home office is particularly warm or gets a lot of sun, using cement mosaic tiles on the floor or on a wall is a great strategy to keep it cool and at the same time look spectacular.
If you think that this type of covering only works for kitchens, then we invite you to take a look at our catalog of handmade mosaics, where you can find hundreds of avant-garde and original designs that will be perfect for the personality you want to give to your home office.
4.- Recycled wood
Spending little and taking care of the environment is easy when you dare to think “out of the box”. Wood is a perfect covering for a small office because it gives a great touch of elegance, however, it is not exactly friendly to Mother Nature because it involves cutting down trees that take years to grow. If you opt for panels, wall bookcases or furniture made from recycled wood you can “kill two birds with one stone” and give a great touch of warmth and creativity to your workplace.
