How to: Home Office in Style

In a stunning turn of events, 2020 has reminded us of the immense importance of the home sphere as a space to live, breathe, and flourish in! And this doesn’t just include conventionally necessary spaces within the home like the living, dining, and kitchen areas – these days, it’s the home office that’s in vogue, and we’re absolutely here for it.

With many a dining table now relegated to playing temporary headquarters for all our WFH endeavours, it’s no wonder that more and more people are looking into proper workspace solutions. A suitable home workspace needs to tick a certain number of boxes that enable productivity, creativity, and general energy!

Here’s how to make a home office space that’ll help you crush your work in style!

King Living’s Eto desk comes with a clever compartment in which to store your laptop!

Keep it clean with storage

The less clutter you have laying around, the more likely your mind is to focus on the task at hand. If you find that your home office space is overly messy with a million and one things breaking your focus, it pays off to take some time to clear it all away. Make sure you have plenty of smart storage tools to keep your necessary items close, but hidden away!

The same also applies to your computer desktop; keep your screen clear and you’ll find you work that much faster!

King Living’s Seymour armchair provides plenty of support for when you need to look over some documents, but don’t want to sit up at your desk!

Ergonomic designs are your friend

Under no circumstances should you choose a seat for mere aesthetics! When you’re going to be spending hours a day in a chair to work, you’re going to want to make sure it’s not only comfortable, but also easy on your back. Look for something that offers sufficient lumbar support. And because Malaysia is immensely hot, you’re going to need to decide on a material that doesn’t retain heat or promote sweating, as this could cause discomfort.

Use colour to focus

Did you know that different colours have different effects on the mental and emotional psyche? Yellow induces good cheer, while red stokes the fires of passion and appetites! Blue and green, however, are perfect colours for the study and workspace, as these colours are known to ground the mind and help promote focus.

Add greenery for a breath of fresh air

When you’re stuck indoors all day, it can be difficult to keep yourself motivated. Bring in the green, if only in the form of a small money plant or a succulent! Not only will the greenery clean the air for you, it’ll also be a nice, natural touch in your home.

Let in the light!

Don’t forget to let in lots of natural light! King Living’s Delta III leather bed provides the perfect resting spot for when you’re tired of sitting up, while the Danielli bookcase (in the back) makes for a stylish space in which to store all your important books.
