Whether you work from home exclusively or keep a home office for the occasional need to get things done, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to spruce up your home office. Remodeling your home office effectively can help boost comfort, productivity, and reinvent your work area no matter what you do for a living. Maybe you already have a home office set up, or you’re looking to convert an existing room into a home office. The good news is that doing so doesn’t have to be expensive.

The first thing in remodeling your home office is the layout. You should optimize the layout so you can work as productively as possible. Comfortable seating and a properly-sized desk is a must! Replacing these is a great first step to the remodel, as they directly contribute to the appearance of your office, and while you may already have an adequate desk and chair, the benefits of a proper desk and chair is an understatement. You’ll also want to consider where you’ll place your printer, shelves and filing cabinets.

It used to be that your printer had to be placed near your computer, but most modern printers are wireless-capable, which means you can place it anywhere in the room. This means you don’t need to clutter your desk with your printer if you don’t want to. Filing cabinets and shelves are important parts of your home office, and they may need to be replaced if they’re worn out or old. Of course, you have the option of repainting and refinishing them, which will rejuvenate them and give you a chance to match their colors with the rest of your home office.

The color of a room has been proven to have a direct effect on the mental state of those who utilize them. Plain white is boring, and dark colors tend to be depressing. Bright colors are more uplifting but distracting, and neutral colors are somewhere in the middle. Pick the color that suits you best. Everyone has different needs, and choosing the right color will help you work the most efficiently. The color of the room will also help decide what color your shelves and filing cabinets should be. A beautifully-colored office can be refreshing to work in.

The most important tip for remodeling your home office is to take everything out and start putting things back one by one, choosing what you really need. You’d be surprised at how many items you may have in there that you don’t really need. Reducing clutter is a major benefactor to your mood, and your mood directly affects your productivity.
