6 Must Read Tips For Masculine Home Offices

 

What a great present for the man in your life- a new home office or a redo! A mobile device is all he needs for that quick response any time day or night- but to think and develop ideas he needs a workspace to flourish in- a greenhouse to grow those ideas into reality. Here are some design tips we’ve gathered for that special guy.

The “Greenhouse”

The ultimate office/greenhouse featured above is in Matthew Weiner’s (Mad Men’s creator) California home. Views of greenery and his pool with the foothills beyond are breathtaking and inspiring. In your home, try to situate your workspace with a view.

TIP: Lighting is so important and we recommend using a sun control window film to reduce the glare and the heat.

The Library

What man doesn’t dream about THAT library- Wood, books, and a fireplace are a perfect match and create a setting for contemplation. Will those cherished libraries of old now disappear because of eBooks?

TIP: Storage needs to be accessible. A library ladder is ideal but if you don’t have one, keep the important storage within arm’s reach.

The Multitasking Office

Rooms multitask just like we do today. The ledge in the background can be used as a bar, buffet OR a home office.  When entertaining, put the lap top away and set up the ledge for your guests.

TIP: Paint the desk and storage space the same color as the wall so that a home office blends in. Conceal the office essentials in invisible drawers and cabinets.

Built-Ins

One of the most challenging aspects of home office decor is to create attractive and functional storage space. If your budget permits, use carefully planned built-ins for files and office equipment.5-storage

TIP: If your budget does not allow for built-ins check out IKEA and The Container Store for great storage ideas. We love wicker baskets, colorful boxes and stunning note book covers to create a clean and organized look.
