No matter what our professions, most of us spend at least part of each day in an office. Some commute to a nine to five job, while others prefer to set up an office or study right in the comfort of their own home. If you are in process of setting up an office, whether in a office building or at your house, take some time to think about under what conditions you work the best. Maybe you need complete silence with absolutely no distractions. Or maybe you want to have a little bit of background noise and lots of bright decorations to inspire creativity. Whatever your working style, these photos from our Indian experts are sure to give you some ideas for decorating your office!
This small but efficient office space, by interior designers the Ashleys, matches the modern contemporary décor of the room. Its slight, compact arrangement reminds us that you do not have to have much to have an office: a table and chair are really all that is required. If you keep this in mind, you should be able to squeeze an office into the smallest of spaces
In this home, by Cozy Nest Interiors, an office space is perfectly integrated into the rest of the décor thanks to the way the desk is seamlessly built into this wall of shelves and cabinets. If you are setting up an office at home, it is important to remember that you will need lots of space for storing all those papers and files that seem to build up on our desks. This unit contains multiple drawers and cabinets, which are essential for hiding away clutter and office supplies. The glass doors on the upper cabinets, however, allow the books to be on display, a choice that helps to create a studious, classic feel.
Another way to create that classic study look is through the use of rich, warm colours like the brown, golden and wooden tones seen here. The space, which was designed by Bangalore-based firm Architect Interior Co., makes use of two tables placed perpendicular to each other to create an L structure. This arrangement provides for maximum desk space, giving you the surface area to spread out your books, papers and screens.
In addition to a desk, the other essential element required for an office space is, of course, a chair! In this office, by decorator Avante India, we are reminded that desk chairs do not need to be the large, black leather chairs that are standard in most offices. Feel free to try something different instead! These deep blue velvet seats, with their classic shapes and proportions, add a touch of luxury and elegance to this office.
This office area, a design of Interiors by Ranjani, fits snugly into the corner, maximizing the space available for both desk space and storage. In addition to increasing the working area, having your desk face a corner carries another advantage: it creates the illusion of a private space. If you are someone who is easily distracted by the other activity in the room, this kind of arrangement may be a good method for making sure that your focus stays on your work and not on what is happening around you.
In this gorgeous home by Hiren Patel Architects, a small desk and chair have been placed in a room off of the bedroom. The large windows and elegant blinds ensure a workspace that will be flooded with natural light. The rich colours and open spaces make the entire setting serene and peaceful, perfect for applying your mind to creative endeavours!
