What Houzz contributors are saying:
Create a calm, hard-working spaceA clear, uncluttered space can promote a clear, uncluttered mind, which is vital for a productive home office. If you have a small nook or alcove to plan, go for wraparound white surfaces and plain white furniture and let the calm, fuss-free vibe wash over your day and keep you cool in the heat.
Manage chaotic cablesHaving a clean work space can really boost productivity. If you have loose wires tangled all over the place, not only will it look a mess, it will also be difficult to move anything or rearrange your space.Integrating screens, phones, printers and other cabled devices into your set-up is a great way to give it a clean, fresh feel. When you integrate a device, all unsightly wiring can be run through the desk, wall or ceiling to leave your aesthetic uncompromised and give the illusion of a wireless zone.

Invest in whiter bulbsIf you find you’re more productive after dusk, or have enough work to keep you going into the evening, a good way to keep productivity high is to ensure your bulbs are closer to white than yellow light. Yellow light is more soothing and can make us feel relaxed, while white light is brighter and aids concentration.
Paint it whiteA quick lick of white paint will freshen up a tired home office in minutes. Paint the ceiling and walls in a heavy-duty, bright white paint and install good task and ambient lighting to work by. Clutter-free surfaces, a mirror and minimal furnishings will help spread the feel-good factor.
