With the past 18 months making the 9-5, 5 day work week seem old-fashioned, there’s never been a better time to make some upgrades to the home office.
For a lot of us, space can be a tight squeeze. Not every dwelling was designed to allow a work-from-home lifestyle, making it hard to find the right place to get into the zone. As a result, kitchen counters, bedrooms, and even living rooms have become makeshift workstations around the globe.
If you have a home office, things aren’t much better either, with most studies designed for a more leisurely work style than what might be required for an entire workday. Thankfully, making the right changes in your home to boost productivity and focus is usually just a matter of making a few changes in your home décor.
So, in today’s blog, we’re going to take a look at some of the best ways that you can boost your home office using designer mirrors!
The reality of many offices in the world is that they’re often just kind of ugly. Cubicles, separators, and the same variation of white walls and blue neon lights make the modern corporate office seem like you’re working from the inside of a bowl of bland porridge.
Thankfully, you don’t have to worry about that with a home office and can instead allow yourself to get creative with the space. After all, you’ll be spending your day in there, so why not make it something nice?
We love the playful beauty of a starburst mirror design and can’t recommend it enough to add to the home office. Starburst designs instantly bring a sense of theatre and sophistication to a room, making even the blandest and uninteresting white wall feel dramatic.
The backbone of any healthy office culture and a productive workday is the ability to keep things bright. It’s why fluorescent lights stay so popular despite being so, well, ugly. Thankfully, while the average office has to resort to ugly lighting to make the most of the space available, the home office doesn’t have to stoop so low.
Mirrors can brighten a space by reflecting natural light in the room, thus enhancing the area. This works even when you only have a single small window in your office, with a large enough mirror to maximize the light available with proper positioning.
Large, hanging mirrors with minimal metal frames are ideal for this task, making it easy to place them on darker walls while maximizing their light-reflecting abilities.
Most home offices end up being pretty small, so being able to make your study feel as spacious as possible is crucial.
Mirrors can go a long way to helping a tighter space feel more open, reflecting the visuals of the surrounding area and making walls feel more expansive as a result. Round Boho or Rattan designs are perfect for this, accentuating a space without dominating it due to their minimalist aesthetic.
