For some folks, the morning commute is just a matter of walking from the bedroom to the home office - by way of the kitchen of course, for that essential cup of coffee. Working at home is a real pleasure, especially when you love your decor and flooring as much as Anderson Floor's Haversham collection invites. And while cloud computing, lighting fast internet and a lot of other technicalities tend to enter the picture, there's no doubt that a major part of having an effective environment is purely aesthetic. Consider these five essential must-haves!
1. Hardwood flooring
Anderson Floors has long been at the top of its game for producing beautiful and durable hardwood flooring. The Haversham collection is no exception to this rule. One look at these beautiful oak boards and you'll fall in love. They're handcrafted with the warmth and artistry you expect from Anderson, and they're sure to provide years of inspiration as well.
2. An awesome desk chair
Working at home often means working behind a desk. In order to avoid the pains and discomfort of your typical office situation, don't skimp on cost or luxury when it comes to purchasing a desk chair. This is about as important an investment as you can make, so be certain you pick out a model that's comfortable enough to sit in for most of your 9 to 5 and also designed well enough to keep you alert and awake. There's a reason more of us don't work from armchairs, after all.
3. Plush guest seating
Your guests on the other hand should be as cozy as can be in their seating. Working out of your home often means having clients, co-workers and assistants in your home office. Keep them impressed and comfortable with some plush guest seating, whether it's a love seat, chaise lounge or set of recliners.
4. Stylish art
Not only do you want to set a mood and tone for your home office, you need regular inspiration. Rather than sticking to innocuous paintings or prints that you can easily ignore on a day-to-day basis, pick works of art that grab your attention and won't let go!
5. A design scheme
Most importantly, all of the above needs to accord with a single design scheme. If your home office has its influences and style too scattered, you may find your mind equally all over the place. While there's nothing wrong with shabby chic, make sure you've got whatever look you're going for down pat.
