BoConcept: Let’s Get Inspired in the Home Office

It’s all about refreshing minimalism in the home office this season. BoConcept shows us how to get the look…

Whether you have been using a home office for a while or are new to working from home, you are probably familiar with the pros and cons of the gig. I mean, where else do you get a thirty-second commute while wearing pyjama pants? But did you know that your home office design affects not just the look of your workspace, but your efficiency and productivity as well? Luckily, creating the perfect home office is a breeze with our inspirational guide from BoConcept.

Once your new office is ready, you won’t know how you ever worked anywhere else!


“Form Follows Function.” These three simple words have the power to put any home design project on the right track, but they especially ring true when it comes to creating the perfect home office design. It was a philosophy of the famous architect Louis Sullivan and it roughly means that if you design with function in mind, the rest of the design will follow.


What will you be doing? Do you do a lot of work that could benefit from extra desk space? Or maybe you could use an extra boost of creativity? Your desk and surroundings should feed into your productivity—especially when it comes to tasks you do frequently.

Will clients be visiting? If yes, you should not only consider your own comfort, but theirs as well. What amenities can be setup to make your clients feel welcome and at ease? This can be as straightforward as investing in some ultra-comfy home office chairs or something a bit outside-the-box, like creating a small coffee bar in an unused corner.


The idea of getting a home office makeover can be invigorating, but those design decisions, well, those are another story. There’s no need to fret though. By breaking your design decisions into smaller pieces, you can have the perfect workspace in no time!

The foundation of a good design boils down to home office furniture that is both stylish and functional


The perfect home office is only an inch away… or three? Maybe two. Try to keep the guessing to a minimum when it comes to measurements. A properly measured room will not only ensure that all the furniture fits, but it can also lead to better flow, maximum function, and a more professional look. Remember: No matter how amazingly stylish a piece of furniture is—or accessory for that matter—if it doesn’t fit, it will look out of place and detract from the overall design.


Office spaces often fall victim to a cold and sterile look thanks to bland colours, an abundance or electrical equipment, impersonal decor or all of the above. Make sure your home office doesn’t follow suit by choosing materials that have a warmer aesthetic. An easy way to cultivate a cosier vibe is by choosing furniture in natural materials, like wood and leather. Prefer metal or glass? Their easy-clean surfaces are fantastic but consider offsetting the more manufactured look with a couple of wood accent pieces or a few potted plants.


Your comfort and health should be high priority when it comes to designing your home office. Ergonomic home office furniture will help you enjoy your new space that much more, while simultaneously protecting your health. What does this mean? Choosing a desk and home office chairs that are the right height, encourage the correct posture, and keep your body in proper alignment. Often these pieces will be clearly labelled “ergonomic” as it is a big selling feature.


Not only should you have adequate lighting to ward off eye strain, but multiple light sources are also a great idea. Invest in a good desk lamp or task lamp as secondary lighting. Studies show that these can help you focus on the project at hand, plus adjustable lamps are ideal for directing light to where it is needed. Pro Tip: Natural light has been shown to boost productivity, so open those curtains! For those moments when nature’s rays aren’t available you can also buy lightbulbs that give off a similar glow
