5 TIPS FOR TRANSFORMING YOUR HOME OFFICE
Whether yours is a quiet corner or the whole room, we’ve gathered our top tips for creating the perfect spot in your home to work, study and dabble in your favourite hobbies.
1. BEGIN WITH YOUR DESK
Desks really are the centrepiece of the home offices and studies that inspire us the most. When choosing yours, consider whether you’re drawn to the natural textures and organic curves of a wooden desk or the cool industrial edge of a handcrafted metal desk.
Hoping to tuck away piles of paperwork? Our Jackson desk adds extra storage with three handy drawers, while our Irving desk has a nifty leaning shelf for stashing notebooks and magazines.
2. DECLUTTER DAILY
Aim to start and end your working day by recycling paperwork, clearing away empty mugs and making sure your space feels clear and organised.
Whether you prefer cabinetry for closing the doors on the clutter, wall mounted shelving to display artwork and books or a simple letter holder to pop on your desk, investing in storage pieces will help keep everything in its place. A firm favourite at G&G HQ is our two-tiered brass and wood magazine rack with its beautiful antiqued finish.
3. SWITCH YOUR LIGHTING
Good lighting is so very important to avoid straining your eyes, particularly if you tend to start early or work later into the evening. Try adjustable options such as our colour-pop Hood desk lamp for a flexible design that can be angled to suit your workspace. Don’t forget to give your eyes regular breaks too!
4. GO GREEN
Transform your desk into an indoor jungle with the help of your favourite planter or vase – we love our Green Face Imprint plant pot.
5. ADD TOUCHES THAT MAKE YOU SMILE
Quirky paperweights, pen pots and bookends can turn your desk into a creative space that truly reflects your character. Whether it’s one of our animal themed homewares that brings a smile even on the busiest of days or a memo board to pin up inspiring clippings, we hope you’ll find something you’ll love for your own home office.
