What furniture do I need for my office?

Important tips for living in your home office:

  • First decide if you need a whole office or if a work corner in the living room is enough.
  • Ideally, choose a room that does not face the street, but faces the garden or courtyard so that you are not disturbed by noise.
  • Good lighting conditions are essential. Daylight and several light sources are very important so that you can work in the evening and do not strain your eyes.
  • Think about the division of your room and where you want to place your furniture.
  • Measure the available space in your room exactly.
  • What do you want to store? Then adjust the volume and dimensions of your office furniture and make sure you have enough storage space.
  • Choose harmonious colorsthat match each other and fit your style. Avoid shrill and too bright colors, as they are very distracting.
  • Determine the appropriate materials and try to create a consistent style.
  • Make sure that you do not exceed your budget when planning.

Desk and desk chair for comfort

The desk is the heart of the office and should therefore be well thought out. Choose a desk that suits you and that you enjoy working at. Be aware of what your needs are, whether you need a large or a small work surface, what and how much needs to be stored and whether a height-adjustable desk would make sense for you. Place your desk in a way that there are enough power sockets and that you have access to the internet. Cable guides or pre-installed docking stations are also very practical. To create more storage space, roll containers can be placed under the desk. This gives you additional space for your paperwork, files and documents. If you spend many hours at your desk, you should also make sure that a comfortable desk chair is placed in front of the desk. It should preferably be height-adjustable so that the sitting position can be varied to protect your back.

What do I have to pay attention to with colors and light for an optimal working climate?

As we have already mentioned in our tips above, good lighting conditions and colors are especially important for a pleasant working atmosphere. Offices with daylight are very important to help you concentrate better and promote your health. Choose well-balanced colors that suit your style and avoid bright colors, as they are very distracting.

Correct color selection for the office

When choosing the office you should also consider the colors of the walls. Warm colors radiate coziness, as opposed to cold colors that make your office sterile and uncomfortable. Different shades of a color family fit together particularly harmoniously. Include your favorite color so that you will feel even more comfortable sitting at your desk.

Lighting in the office is the be-all and end-all

Without good office lighting, it is impossible to work efficiently, especially if your office does not have enough daylight. A high-quality desk lamp for your workplace is therefore highly recommended. So you can continue working undisturbed at any time of day or night. The light of the desk lamp should be bright, but not blinding, so that your eyes are protected. Good lighting prevents fatigue and leads to better work results.

Color selection and lighting for your feel-good office

Good office lighting for your feel-good office consists of the perfect mix of artificial lighting and daylight. Indirect light is ideal, as it prevents reflections and glare. In addition, care should be taken to illuminate the room evenly. Especially for the office: Avoid dark and intense colors! Soft and light colors make rooms look larger and friendlier. Green tones are refreshing, yellow radiates warmth, whereas red spreads restlessness. In addition, match the furniture you buy with these colors and give your working environment even more harmony.


Which feel-good objects are important for the office?

Add the finishing touches to your office with personal items, as these will bring back fond memories or create positive feelings. For example, beautiful pictures with your loved ones or souvenirs from your vacation. You should also choose high quality items that have a stimulating and pleasant design. This motivates you to keep order.

Memorabilia to feel comfortable in the office

To make your workplace more comfortable, photos and images are especially popular. Landscapes, vacation pictures or photos of family and friends give your office a personal touch. Your vacation souvenirs or your favorite decorative items will find a nice place on your desk or shelf system. Surrounded by familiar things, you automatically feel more comfortable.

Office plants in large and small

Plants in the office not only have a positive influence on the indoor climate, but also filter dust and toxins. Especially in winter, when the heating air is dry, plants increase humidity and produce oxygen. In addition, they increase the well-being and give the room vitality. They have a great influence on the ambience and provide more naturalness in the office. Small potted plants adorn the windowsill or decorate the shelf, while larger plants find their place on the floor and especially corners are shown to advantage.
