25 Wall Decor Ideas For Your Home Office

A home office is a unique space. It needs to function as a productive room where you can get things done, but it has potential to have a personal sense of style, too. Unlike an out-of-home office, there are no workplace mandates on correct decor. It's not a cubicle, and it may even serve multiple purposes. For instance, you might have a sleeper sofa in your office for guests.

2. An Eclectic Blend Of The Things You Love

This home office with its chic concrete walls and large loft windows doubles as an office corner and living space. The decor is eclectic but speaks more to living space than an office with its utilization of floating shelves, flower wreaths, and carefully chosen framed pieces. We particularly love the little tin bucket with dried flowers and twinkly lights cascading onto the sofa.

This lovely home office nook takes advantage of the stark white of the space and keeps things neutral with a natural wood desk, white chair, and simple floating shelf in white. On the shelf, small lidded boxes are used to keep office materials tucked out of sight for minimum clutter.

If you need somewhere to put a few reminders or a postcard for the latest gallery opening but don't like the idea of a corkboard or pinning things to the wall, then consider using a grid. This metal grid is both elegant and practical, and the clever use of clips makes changing out the content easy.

9. Use Standard Cabinetry With No Doors For Your Home Office

This is a cool way to get maximum storage but have it feel open and airy and more office than kitchen. Use standard wall mount cabinets but forgo the doors. Then fill it with a few decorative objects and some baskets for hiding the clutter and your home office is both attractive and practical.
