5 Must-Haves for a Modern Home Office

A Modern Home Office

Nothing makes your house feel more like a home than one that is designed exactly for your unique style and functional needs. This is where we come in! At Palmer Kay Design, we sit down with our clients for a personal appointment to discuss your project. We always love to have a home tour next, so that we can see the space we’re working with. Next, we’ll create your custom design and present it to you. Then, we’re working on your project until completion. Reveal day is our favorite day as we show you the design brought to life!

One of our favorite projects to design is your home office. We want to make your home office function for your needs while designing a stylish space for eye-pleasing presentation. In our design process for your room, there are 5 must-haves we always recommend for a modern home office:

Functional Desk Space

Whether you’re an artist who needs to spread out or someone who only needs a computer to work, it’s important to have the proper functional desk space for your needs. This could mean a 10-foot table in the middle of the room or a small, work desk in the corner. If you like to stay standing or need a change from your average sitting desk, perhaps a standing desk is right for your home office! Don’t settle for something that will “work”. At Palmer Kay Design, we’ll make sure your desk is functional for you whether we need a specific height, length, drawer space, etc.


Bookshelves, Home Office Design, Home Office Ideas near Palmer Kay Design Peachtree City, Georgia (GA)

We love bookshelves for every home office whether you’re a book lover or not. Not only are they perfect for holding your beloved books, but also for displaying photos, trophies, or any other special possessions. Add some candles and fun décor with those shelves you’re not sure what to do with!

Organization is always a must with home offices, especially in small home offices. This could be floating shelves, bookshelves, or even cubbies with bins for office supplies. Desk organization is especially important for keeping your workstation clean throughout your workday. From pencil holders to filing cabinets, making sure you are able to keep your office clean and organized allows you to work more efficiently and feel at home in your space.


Office Lighting, Lamps, Window Treatments, Home Office Ideas near Palmer Kay Design Peachtree City, Georgia (GA)

Having the right lighting is key to a functional workspace. Computers, artwork, reading, and more all require specific lighting. The right window treatments or lamps may be all you need or sometimes it requires simply changing rooms in the house. It’s all about what works for you!

Lounge Space

Make sure to save room in your home office for a lounge space. Sometimes it’s nice to get out of your office chair and bring work to a comfier spot like a couch or recliner. This is a great way to change up your routine and relax your body a bit through the workday.
