A home office can come in handy for almost anyone, including someone who works from home 100% of the time, or someone who just likes a place to get the household bills paid, and everyone in between. We don’t all have the space to make this a reality, but the good news is that all it takes is a curtain to create a unique home office space.
Make use of an extra closet
We’re not all blessed with an extra closet, but if you’re one of the lucky ones, empty it out, put a desk in it, and install your favorite draperies over the door. You can pull it closed when not in use and no one will be any the wiser, but when you need your office space it’s right there for you.
Create a bedroom office to be proud of
If your bedroom is large enough to partition part of it off to use as an office, just hang your curtain where you want the room divided. As far as decorating goes, you have two main options. First, you can choose colors, styles, and fabrics for the bedroom side that are completely different from your office, which will clearly delineate one side from another. Or you could use similar colors and fabrics on both sides so your bedroom seamlessly fits in with your office space.
Turn one office into two
As more and more people work from home, at least part of the time, it’s getting more difficult for couples to find numerous office spaces to use in a single home. But who says they need separate rooms? The curtain trick works just fine within a second bedroom that’s turned into two offices instead of one. Buy everyone a pair of noise canceling headphones, pull the curtain closed, and you’ll never know your partner is on the other side.
Spruce up a basement office
Curtains aren’t just used to separate spaces to create a home office, they can also be used in the basement to create the illusion of a lovelier space. There’s often space in the basement, but who wants to feel like they’re working in a dungeon? One way to prevent this is to hang up curtains as though they’re covering windows. You know there’s just blank wall behind them, but they’ll give you the feeling that just beyond them is the beautiful, sunny outdoors.
These are just a few ways you can create a lovely home office by investing in nothing more than drapery. Shop a wide range of options with Half Price Drapes and let us help turn your home from fine to fabulous.
