1. Get a window in front of your work table
A window in front of you makes you work more productively. With a view of nature outside the window is a kind of refreshment that keeps you working for longer hours and impresses your colleagues working at home. Put up a beautiful curtain of your choice.
If the sofa is already placed before the window, replace the sofa with your working table. Place your working table in front of the window.
2. Make a cozy place
At home, you get extra advantages that you might be unaware of. Sitting all day in the office used to give you back pain, but now you have got the privilege to enjoy a cozy working place.
After sitting for long hours in your rigid chair, lie down on a cozy carpet, where you can stretch yourself and enjoy your work.
How would you create that cozy place? Lay a carpet beside your work table, put some pillows over there. And get yourself boosted up with a laptop and a drink.
Instead of a carpet, you can also put some bean bags or soft stools.
3. Get extra shelves
How do you think you’ll organize your office documents that used to be stored in the office locker? Get separate shelves or tables that have built-in shelves. Organizing makes work better. You don’t want everything to be a mess. And papers are a big probability of creating an unorganized room.
To avoid this havoc in your home office, get proper shelves. You can also DIY to create shelves at a budget.
4. Get a separate room for home office
Creating a workplace in the living room or bedroom might bring you less productive. Which is why it is needed to get a separate room for work in case you want to get your work done the best.
Organize that room with proper shelves, a systematic table and chair to sit, and a window for a refreshment break.
In your house, if you have an extra room in the form of a storeroom, then transform that room into your office.
5. Separate your office using curtains
It’s fine if you do not have an extra room. You might be staying in a one-hall studio. And that brings you a total mess. You might wish to have at least one extra room. But you do not need to worry.
You can create that extra room using a curtain. Pull out the curtain to create your work zone. And confine yourself within to have a better concentration.
While you make that space, keep in mind that it is big enough to suit your table, chair, and your cozy rug where you would love to have a cup of coffee, stretching your body.
6. Make use of the hallway
Does your home have less space but enough space in the hallway in the bedroom or any other room? Make use of it. Create your congenial office space there. Use your creativity to make the best use of the space, by organizing according to the architecture of the hallway.
It’s a plus if you’ve got a window there. A mini-mattress by the corner of the hallway gives you an extra corner for keeping your excitement continued within your zone.
7. Put inspirational frames
Inspirational quotes or photos in the form of frames hanging in the wall makes your work motivated in a better way. Even if you get bored working in the same place that has less space, you get the chance to dive into another world by looking at those inspiring frames.

Working all day inside the room might make you suffocated. Keeping some plants that bring fresh air are necessary to be kept in your room. Especially plants that look flourishing are the better option.
9. Put a mirror
Mirror brings a charm to a room with a little effort. Also, it gives you the chance to introspect, retrospect, and not forget yourself amidst the workload.

Also, creating beautiful frames in the mirrors add an unbelievable attraction to the eyes. They can be of glass, gems, diamonds, pearls, wooden, and many more.
For a woman, this tip would work the best. Women are most attracted and can confine themselves for longer periods when there is a mirror. Of course, that shouldn’t be designed to such an extent that disturbs the concentration while working.
10. Hang bright curtains
Old curtains are boring. Bring some refreshments. Get new curtains online at very low prices. Online home decor sites have the best collection and if explored, might get you the one that you wanted. Yellow, blue, and brown curtains are in trend now. They are very attractive.

While contradictorily, if you want a bright room with sufficient sunlight coming into your room then, a yellow color curtain would be the best for your home office. With that, you can use some sheer curtains that add the freshness touch to the room.
11. Add creeper lights
Creeper lights or the LED lights can be hung along with the curtain. You can add such types of lights along with the sheer curtain or a yellow colored curtain. They make your room extra bright. And it brings a happy mood in the evening. If you have got a night shift or an evening shift then this idea would inspire you to work better and in a happy mood.
12. Keep inspiring books
Books inspire one to work better. And keeping a collection of inspiring and motivational books are an extra boost to the work at your home. Quotes and posters can be hung on the walls to keep yourself motivated.
As we all know, we are not working with our colleagues in the same place. We do not get to see them. They were the ones who brought daily challenges and competitively motivates them. But now you have fewer chances to see them. Books, quotes, and posters at this time work the best to inspire one.
13. Portraits of Personalities
If you are a businessman, then you can put up some photos of personalities that are in the Forbes list, or you can put up photos of your favorite personalities who inspire you in some way. This would help you get motivated to the fullest. If you are a creative person, then some creative portraits would fulfill your wish in the best way.
14. Don’t forget a dustbin

It is not needed to keep a usual big dustbin there. You can use a small one. Various shapes and sizes of cute dustbins are available online which you can easily afford at low prices.
Make sure you do not keep the dustbin in an open area. It is better to keep under your table or shelf so that it has fewer chances of being hit. Also, they must be kept clean regularly.
This is a point that shouldn’t be ignored because, with a beautiful makeover, you want your room to look tidy as well.
15. Hang bright and cozy lights
Cozy lights or bright lights that can be adjusted can be put above your work table. This makes it easy for you to work during the night. Hanging lights in the middle work the most efficiently. Also, you need to make sure the light above your table provides you a proper visual, which is neither too dim nor too bright.
You can DIY some hanging lights using paper cutting crafts. Papers of various colors can be used which would reflect colorful hues in the room, according to your choices.
For instance, if you want a bluish hue in your room, then you can DIY a hanging light using blue transparent paper, that would allow the light to pass without any hindrance.
16. A pop paint to one wall
Give a bold color to the walls of your workplace at your home. Because this brings a better concentration and a stronger mindset. But in case you like light color all over the room, paint one wall with a popping color.
Because your mind wants a change in the eyes. Confining yourself in a room that has a dull color might make your brain dull and spirit boring as well. Which is why it is preferred to have pop paint in one wall.
Putting one wall with bold color and leaving the other walls with a mild color is the better option because this is something unique and an elevating sight to the eyes.
However, there are some color combinations. You cannot combine any color that does not match. For instance, you cannot combine red and light yellow. A peach or beige with a popping red color would be mesmerizing.
