In recent years  it's become more important to create a place in your home that you can devote to a home office. With advances in technology, like Skype and the Cloud for example, it's now easier than ever to telecommute, and more and more people are choosing to work from home. If you don't have an entire room you can devote to an office, create a workspace in a corner of a room, like the family or living room.  A corner of a bedroom will work too.  Or turn a transitional space like a hallway into an office as in the photo above. Task lighting is very important , whether you're in a traditional office environment or at home.  You can find stylish adjustable desk lamps that are both pretty to look at and functional. Add comfortable seating or an additional work surface for when you have meetings.  A banquette, sofa or cozy chair can be a nice break from staring at a computer screen. Think out-of-the-box when it comes to lighting in your home office design. Pendant lighting has become very popular  in home offices and can be used as both ambient and task lighting. Don't limit yourself to using the traditional idea of a desk chair in your home office.   Try using dining chairs or even some occasional chairs work really well.  Mismatch the chairs to add a dash of personality to a space. Keep in mind the fact that you are likely to be spending a lot of time in the space, so our advice is to put a lot of time and thought into the design of your home office so you'll look forward to going to work in the morning, even if it is in your pajamas!
