Freelancers and entrepreneurs often have the freedom to work from home. To get the most from those hours, we organize a workspace to make it our own.
But in most cases, this space still blends into the rest of the house; this makes it more difficult to get into work mode than if the office was elsewhere.
One fix is to create an office space that reflects your personality while also promoting hard work and creativity. I sometimes dream of creating a space so awesome, it could only be described as…well, ridiculously awesome!
Here are my top five inspirations, starting with the least ridiculous.
1. The Mini
This Mini Cooper desk gives a whole new meaning to “racing deadlines”!
2. The Beach
We all dream of working on the beach, but suspect none of the people in those beach photos is actually working. This is the solution!
3. The Underseas Adventure
Although this is not currently a home office, I can easily see the potential for an adaptation—complete with sound effects.
4. The Rainforest
No, this is not real—but it could be. It would be just like being outside, but without the bugs!
5. The Aquarium
This aquarium rendering would be impossible to build, but is my absolute favorite. Not only does it feel inviting, it would keep the cat off the keyboard!
These five offices may not be practical—or even possible—but the idea of creating something functional, comfortable, attractive and inspiring should play a huge part in how you design your workspace. Get creative and create a unique space of your own that will bring out your best work.
