Home-Office DIY

Updated: Apr 21





Step 1:


Find a nice corner in your apartment or house. Ideally next to a window.


Step 2 :


If you have a regular table or desk, place it at least one meter from the window so you can open the window fully. If you have a closet like me, leave a minimum space of one meter between the table and the closet. Unless the room you are using is very small, do not put your table against a wall. If you are in need of a desk or table, I would recommend to go for wood or bamboo. There are some nice options at Bolia, Ikea and home24.ch


Step 3 :


If you are working from home, it is worth investing in a decent desk chair. Choose a chair that is a both comfortable and chic. I got mine at home24.ch.


Step 4 :


Add your computer, key board and important papers. One of the things that I like the most about home offices is the options that we have to organise our paper work. You can get an organiser in Ikea or on Amazon.de. I always like to have a my notebook with a pen or pencil near by. The Notebook is from Home & Fleur.


Step 5 :


Add some plant pots and plants to make the space cozy. I use a large cono plant pot with a Ficus Lyrata on the left side against the wall, a medium bowl plant pot next to the window with a Monsterra, and a mini cylinder plant pot with a cactus on my desk.






Extra Tips :


If you live in Switzerland and are looking for Ficus Lyrata, it can get a bit difficult to find one. You can ask plant stores to order one for you. I ordered mine with Blumenhaus Sihlfeld. You can also add a rug under your table to make the space more cozy. If you use neutral colors for your chair and organiser, you can add a rug with a nice pattern, such as the THATO RUG from ARTHA Collections.
