How to make your home office a more creative space

With so many of us working from home now, we need a space in our home that can have multiple uses. A place away from the hustle and bustle of the home where we can get work done, but that also fosters creativity. 


If you’re generally feeling a lack of inspiration and excitement at the prospect of working at home, it might be time for a bit of a makeover.


Here are several ways you can make your home office a more creative space: 


Reflect Your Personality

Your home office should be a reflection of you and your personality. After all, you’ll be spending a lot of time in this space, so it’s essential that it’s a space that you enjoy hanging out in.  


Make sure you have inspiration around you such as wall art, a photo of people you love, or inspirational quotes to keep you going when it gets a little tough!


Don’t be afraid to embrace a little quirky too! The more unique and personal your space is, the more likely you’ll feel inspired by it. My framed 2nd grade report card where my teacher complained I had a “tendency to visit too much during class” still makes me laugh.


Remove clutter

Be mindful that your home office is the room where we administrate our lives, so it can be prone to clutter. Clutter doesn’t just fill our desks, it can also fill our mind too and create greater exhaustion and stress. 


Do yourself a favor and keep your home office as clutter-free as possible by having enough organized storage units and boxes so that everything has its own place. You may not do it perfectly, but every little bit will clear space in your life.


Have an Inspiration Board

An inspiration board is a great way to stimulate creativity and keep you reminded of what you’re working toward. You can fill this with visual images that you want to achieve as a business owner or anything you want to do personally, like travel, or challenges you want to complete over the coming months. 


Bring in nature

Having a close connection with nature is proven to improve your mood and overall well-being. If you’re anything like me and totally incapable of looking after any kind of flower in my home, I’ve made colorful glass flowers in frames and pots that will add vibrancy to any office or home working space to help you stay connected to nature. 



Hang art on your office walls

This isn’t just about having art for art’s sake, it’s about something that is unique and speaks to you. Your wall art should be inspiring, reflective of you, imaginative and inventive.



Quite often, it’s the little things in our workplace environments that can have a big, positive impact and help us feel creative while at work – and art has a huge role to play in this.
