Revamp Your Home Office with the Top Design Trends of 2022

With permanent work from home arrangements becoming the new normal in workplaces across the globe, more of us are turning our attention to the spaces we now call our office. It’s no secret that our physical environment, from the lighting and furniture we use, plays a vital role in productivity and overall wellbeing. Now that the WFH novelty has worn off, creating a calming and ergonomic home office is a top priority and one that is sure to pay dividends if done right.

If a home office revamp is long overdue, consider incorporating one of these productivity-boosting and aesthetically pleasing design trends for 2022.

Stylish Ergonomics

With work from home arrangements remaining in place for the long term, a home office with ergonomics in mind is at the forefront of our interior design choices in 2022. But style doesn’t have to be sacrificed for good posture and productivity. Adjustable leather office chairs like this one, as well as sleek and minimalist table-style desks with plenty of space, will be welcome additions to any stylish home office.

Scandi Style

While a bright and busy home office filled with artwork and inspiration sparks creativity for some, a monochromatic palette with practical features works far better for others. If you find neutrals, sleek lines and functional design conducive to productivity, taking a leaf out of Scandinavian interior style may be the way to go. Think white furnishings, contrasting black decor, house plants and graphic prints.

Neutral Tones and Natural Light

Providing a much-needed calming effect, neutral tones and strong sources of natural light are just what a home office needs to encourage productivity and provide a good Zoom call background. The light timber tones, rattan, linens and curvaceous lamps we loved in 2021 will continue to find their way into our spaces in 2022 and will be most welcome in the home office.

Wall Storage

Perfect for showcasing your interests and housing all your work-related paperwork and materials, built-in wall storage is a practical and stylish way to elevate the home office. Display your favourite decorative pieces, achievements and hide away the less presentable bits and pieces in cohesive storage boxes. Or, centre your shelving around a print or artwork like this one to create more visual interest.
