The pandemic has brought most of us – and our work – to our homes. Our houses became an extension of our offices and schools. With this, home design here in the Philippines has also taken a different light. The increased time we spent scooped in the four corners of our homes elicits an urge to redecorate not only for aesthetic reasons but more so for accommodating the additional purpose the house has taken.

 

Moving into 2021 with a sense of hope and new beginnings, what best way to celebrate it indoors than to apply some fresh home designs, right? Let us delve into some design inspirations that can make our home offices both chic and functional.

 

Comfy and Homey

A comfortable work area means you can veer away from the traditional setup of office-chair-and-office-table. Inject a homey feeling while maintaining the workplace aura using warm colors, hand-me-down furniture pieces, artworks, or patterned wallpapers.

Going Green

Biophilic or nature-inspired decor is literally growing its roots into the world of architectural design. The “plantitas” trend in the Philippines is not surprising to be outspreading into home design. Apart from the aesthetics, incorporating plants in the house office area relieves stress and provides health benefits like anti-radiation effects and natural ventilation.

   

Smart and Multifunctional

Furniture, paint, and décor designs based mainly on good lighting and acoustics effect are gaining popularity. With video conferences developing as the new trend in communication, having good quality sound and lighting systems is becoming essential. Of course, having a room paint or wall design that flatters your physical register in the camera should not be missed.

   

Work from home design in the Philippines for this year is becoming more innovative. You can also go play along with the Pantone colors of the year of illuminating yellow and ultimate gray. Be more easy to the eyes of your colleagues during meetings and ditch the unflattering image backgrounds by having an actual visually pleasing room. If this setup will continue, then best be in a comfort zone that makes you more relaxed and productive.
