You’ve finally decided that you want to turn that spare bedroom into a home office, but you’re not sure where to start. You might need the space so that you can work from home, or you may need a dedicated spot to pay bills or work on that book you’ve wanted to write for years. At Hacienda Lighting in Scottsdale, our interior design options make it easy to create the perfect home office, and we have everything from lighting and furniture to decor and ceiling fans.
A good place to start is with the lighting. Depending on the architectural design of the room, you can have several different fixture choices. If the ceiling is high enough, you may opt for a semi-flush or hanging fixture, or perhaps a ceiling fan with a light kit. It’s important to keep in mind that this fixture is only for general illumination, and that you’ll need to add some lamps and other fixtures for task and accent lighting.
Since the office will be used for tasks such as reading, writing, and surfing the web, you’ll want to be sure to have the right lamps in the right places. A tall floor lamp next to your favorite chair will help when reading, and a desk lamp is recommended for those hours you spend balancing the checkbook or paying bills online. Accent fixtures such as wall sconces can be beneficial, but only if they work with the design and layout of the room.
If you’re moving that old bedroom set out and a new desk in, you’ll want to have other new furnishings to go along with it. Perhaps you have plans for the space to be an office and a den/man cave, complete with a flat screen television. The right coffee or cocktail table can look great in the middle of the room, and you’ll want to have enough seating for the space. A new office chair can also make the hours spent sitting at your desk more comfortable, and it’s important to have a cabinet or drawers for organizational purposes.
You have a vision for your new home office, and in that vision you see an impeccable space with the perfect finishing touches. Perhaps you want a globe sitting in one corner, or unique pieces of decor on the bookshelves. Whatever the case may be, it’s important to put as much thought into your accents as you did with your lighting and furnishings.
