Modern Home Office Ideas and Designs
The second-floor office of designer Kevin Rein
Ideas for small spaces: Gray walls + simple furniture: Ralph Lauren ‘Grange Hall’er’s Ohio farmhouse, painted Grange Hall by Ralph Lauren. When painting small homes and spaces, Reiner advises using restraint: “I use no less than three and no more than five paint colors in similar tones throughout the house to create a flow.”

Ideas for small spaces: Vintage apothecary cabinet for storage, from Elle Decor

Bright, modern office: Orange paint + chocolate-brown accents
Can’t commit to a bright orange box? Try painting one wall a paler tone and keeping the others neutral. Add dark wood furniture and chocolate-brown accessories for sophisticated contrast. Or go the opposite route — bright white and pops of turquoise would look great in this space, too.

When planning for a comfortable detached home office, allow adequate room for a desk with rolling chair, office equipment such as a printer, fax and phone, and storage along with any other items necessary for your office to function properly. Also consider taking advantage of common shed space-saving ideas such as loft storage and built-in cabinets and shelves. Plan electrical, phone and internet outlet locations to complement the space plan. Another important item to allow for is ample daylight; installing French doors and windows on at least two walls can make a small office feel more open and spacious. Heating and cooling requirements vary based on local climate, but a space heater or wall AC unit may be all that is needed if floors, walls and ceilings of the outbuilding are fully insulated. Finish the space off with pleasant interior materials, colors, and furnishings rather than standard institutional finishes and you will have a functional and satisfying home office. Couple this with some good backyard gardening skills, and your twenty-second morning commute can become the most anticipated part of your day. (via)
