The Summer holidays are coming to an end (sob!) which means it’s time to get serious and shift into back-to-school/back-to-work mode.Wouldn’t it be nice to get organised once and for all with a fab new workstation to kick off 2013 on a fresh note?
Styling a contemporary smart-space needn’t be hard work. Whether you’re looking to create a practical, clutter-free environment for a child, teen, or adult – check out these innovative home office solutions for all stages of life.
KIDS CREATIVE CORNER
Indulge your child’s imagination with a colourful, creative space - in their bedroom or rumpus room - that puts the fun in functional. Age-appropriate furniture ensures suitable seat and desk height for little bodies and a vibrant, playful design adds a lighthearted, whimsical touch. Introduce splashes of colour in the form of bright accessories, stools and lamps.
If you’re adding a desk to your child’s bedroom, choose a simple and compact style with pull-out drawers to save space. Shadow box frames positioned above the desk are a fashionable way to showcase certificates of achievement and artistic creations. Want to reduce clutter? Think outside the square and add a few bright ottomans which double up as valuable storage systems.
TEEN STUDY SPACE
When creating a study space for your teenager, it’s a good idea to let them have input into choosing their office furniture so that they have a sense of ownership of that space. Having sufficient storage space for accommodating school work is essential – think pull-out keyboard trays, returns that slide under desks and mobile filing cabinets.
Kiss that drab, cluttered excuse for a workstation goodbye! Creating a stylish and practical home office space with character is a cinch. Whether you favour an industrial, minimalist, classic or glam look – decorate your office space with furniture and items that convey your personal style. Add a series of framed postcards from your last holiday, an exquisite accent chair, a stainless steel desk or a chic lamp and transform your study into a welcoming yet functional retreat that you’ll enjoy (you might even be inspired to do some work!).
