Instead of everything being set on their own plane, eating up space, overlap the layers to create a geometric mishmash of storage, desk, and shelves. This kind of layout will draw the eyes all over the room while still keeping your belongings on hand.
If you’re sharing a home office with another person, account for all the space you’ll need, as well as the different storage and workspace needs of the individual. This concept allows both of you to work together in the same space without crowding each other for light or supplies. Keep things white makes it appear sleek and clean, too.
Instead of just wood paneling, an wooden accent wall will invoke a sense of authority and professionalism like this one seen here. Cover the wall from the floor to the ceiling and add a few small plants to keep the “nature” theme going. Throw in a red chair for some extra boss-like flair.
