  • Choose your space wisely: It can be the corner of your room or the dining room of your apartment, the idea is to enable a different space to your bed or places of rest to be able to concentrate on the work to be done and not be easily distracted.

Having chosen the place, the design and decoration becomes easier.

  • Decorate with positive elements: Already having the defined space, it is time to choose a style to start decorating and with it, it is good to add positive memories to your work space as postcards of last trip, decoration objects inherited by your loved ones, incenses or aromatherapy to boost your creativity and concentration.

  • White and pastel colors: These colors are ideal to give a light and spacious effect to the rooms or small spaces. White and pastel colors bring light and help make your workplace look clean and sober. If you want to decorate your home office, we recommend not using very strong colors such as black that generate a lot of noise and little harmony.

  • Organization and cleaning: If you use your home as an office it is good to be organized and organized, but it is very easy to get distracted. It is good to have organizing boxes for storing cables, notebooks, etc.
