Home Office Design Inspiration For My Handmade Business

Home Office Design Inspiration for your handmade business. A good working office needs...

I was out in my garage yesterday, using the laser cutter in the makeshift workshop I have set up, dreaming about my new home office design that we’re planning to build into a new extension. It will be a couple of years before we’re able to afford such a big renovation, but it’s never too early to gather inspiration, am I right?

Office Principles were chatting to me recently and they asked me to share my best tips on home office design with you guys, so here are the main things I’ll be considering when I finally move out of my bedroom office into a custom built space:

// Although I work alone now, I want to make sure there’s enough space for an additional person to work with me if I am able to employ an assistant or if I just fancy co-working with another self employed pal one day. I wouldn’t want the space to take up too much room so I would be looking at stackable seating and expandable desk space. I loved the workspace area from this open concept tiny house that Ana White created.

// The room I work in now is amazing as it’s so much larger than any space I’ve been able to use before. However the more you get, the more you want and I’m already frustrated by the lack of wall space in my current office. I believe a workspace should be inspiring and motivating and I’d love to have more space to hang my travel photos and fun motivational quotes to get me through the working day.

// I’m lucky to have tonnes and tonnes of natural light already in my current workspace, so this is something I definitely need to carry over into the new space. As a designer it’s so important to have natural light so you can get an accurate representation of what something actually looks like – plus being able to see nature outside your window is a huge boost for your mood.

// I really want a space that is pretty, but also practical¬†so as well as wall space, I would be looking to have areas set aside for my workshop (dirty things!) photography area (super clean things!) and stock storage. At the moment my office is very impractical as there isn’t enough room for everything to have it’s own place. Everywhere is storage at the moment so there is very little actual workspace to utilise!

creative workspaces

//¬†My current space is decorated in my brand’s colours which not only makes it so much easier for me to stay on brand with my photographs and behind the scenes peeks, but also looks more professional and cohesive to any outside person coming in. It also helps that I love these fun colours and it makes me feel focussed to be surrounded by the brand I’ve worked so hard to build.

Office Principles also have some great insight on what makes a good office space and they also asked me to tell you folks that they offer an office refurbishment service so they can do all the work for you while you concentrate on business!
