Living Room Office Ideas

12:00PM 22 March 2024

For many of us in 2024, working from home has become the new norm. Well, at the very least it’s normal for half the week. And what better place to set up your home office than your lovely living room?

In this blog, we'll explore some of our favourite living room office ideas to help you maximise your space, boost productivity, and add a touch of style in the process.

Dual-Purpose Furniture

Make the most of your living room space by investing in dual-purpose furniture. Look for a sleek desk that doubles as a console table when not in use. This way, you can maintain a functional workspace without sacrificing style.

Storage ottomans and coffee tables with hidden compartments are great for keeping your workspace clutter-free and your living room nice and tidy.

Perfect Placement

When designing your living room office, remember to think about where you place your workspace. Position your desk near a window to take advantage of natural light and scenic views. This brightens up your workspace while creating the perfect environment for productivity. Also, creating a designated workspace within your living area, even in an open-plan layout, can help establish boundaries between work and leisure.

Stylish Storage Solutions

Stay organised with stylish storage elements that blend seamlessly into your existing living room décor. You can’t go wrong with floating shelves or bookcases - perfect for keeping your workspace clutter-free.

You can also go for decorative bins or baskets to stash away office supplies and paperwork. This will ensure that your living room office stays functional without losing you any style points.

Make It Yours

Inject some of your personality into your living room office with personalised touches that reflect your style and interests. Remember, your living room office ideas needn't all be about work. Maybe you could create a gallery wall above your desk showcasing artwork, photographs, or inspirational quotes.

Or, if you’re a bit green-fingered, incorporate indoor plants to bring a sense of nature indoors and promote a calming atmosphere. You could also consider adding other elements like desk organisers, desk lamps, and comfortable seating.

Bring in the Shutters

Elevate your living room office with your own set (or two) of made-to-measure shutters. Shutters are great for providing privacy and light control, but they also add a touch of sophistication to your space.
You’re free to choose from a variety of shutter styles, such as full-height shutters or café-style shutters, while there is a range of paints and wood-stained finishes on offer.

With their clean lines and versatile designs, shutters are fast becoming one of the country’s top living room office ideas. To get in on the action, shop our shutter collections today.
