The importance of space

The best way to begin with this endeavour is to look for a spacious corner. A cramped up space, stuffed with furniture and unnecessary props, or everything placed too close to each other screams the opposite of comfortable. Whether you find your corner in your living room, bedroom or even dining area; make sure it has big open windows and free-flowing space to walk around.

The balance between sizes, colours, and patterns

Table clocks, a mini-calendar and photo frames will look just adorable, especially when you choose the right colours and patterns to complement the look. The more balanced and neutral your corner looks, the more inviting it becomes.

Strategically place tall potted plants

Fill vertical height in rooms with tall ceilings or fill bare, lonely corners with potted trees. As long as your space gets enough light to support the plant’s needs, you really can’t go wrong with adding a massive houseplant.

Creative lighting

No matter what size of a room/ corner you have, lighting can make a difference in how the room feels. If you have just one centre ceiling light, you will likely want to add more light with lamps. A room can look awkward if you have too many lamps, perhaps pick two or three lamps of larger scale with similar shades and then mix in slimmer less obtrusive metal floor and wall lamps to bring lighting all around the room. Mixing in glass lamps can also prevent lamp overload. Even simple table lamps can meet your purpose here.

Windows are wonderful

When a room is flooded with natural light, it seems to look more spacious. Regardless of whether the room is done up in darker shades or a more neutral palette, light lifts up space instantly. So, tone down any window treatments that obstruct light and add in as many windows as you can.

Choose the right furniture

They say “You can’t be productive if you are in pain.” Therefore, more than anything else, choosing the right size when it comes to your work desk and chair as per your height is the right thing to do. Picking chairs with adjustable height makes it all the more easier for you to try and test various height levels as per your desk.
