Relaxing Renovations for Working at Home

People today spend a lot of time at home. With a few small changes, you can make sure that your house is a comfortable place to relax and work. These can be elaborate changes or subtle tweaks to what you already have, and they can be done on a range of budgets.

Dedicate a Home Office Space

Having a separate home office space in your home gives you a way to “go to” work and a way to leave it behind at the end of the day. If you have an entire room to dedicate to a home office, it’s nice to be able to shut the door at the end of your workday. If not, you can still dedicate a desk in the corner of the room to work. The key is to have this outside your normal relaxation zone so that work isn’t always on your mind. It’s also helpful to keep all the work items you need near this space to maximize efficiency.

Add Texture

To make a room feel more inviting, try adding several textures. One simple way to do this is to add a rug. Natural fibers such as sisal are grounding, but you can use any that keep to the rooms’ overall theme and your tastes. If you don’t want to splurge on a large rug for one room, try strategically placing smaller rugs throughout. Another easy spot to add textures is with throw pillows. Not only do they add a lovely decorative touch, but they also make seating more comfortable.


When all the spaces in your house are overflowing with decorative items and piles of unused things, it can evoke anxiety. Decluttering drastically improves a room’s comfort level. Take one area at a time and think about selling or donating items you no longer want or that don’t fit the design of the room. Having some empty space helps a room feel more open.

Set Aside Some Space for Fun

While some areas in your home should be perfect for relaxing, you also want to have places for fun and enjoyment. Consider finding a place, whether a whole room or just a space in one room, for you to focus on your hobbies. You get the perks of practicing your hobby, such as getting a mood lift and releasing stress, without having the materials spread all over your home.

Bring in Some Nature

Humans benefit from being near nature. Bring the outdoors in by growing plants and flowers. If your thumb isn’t too green, you can choose hearty plants like succulents or even opt for some nice artificial plants. Also, bring in as much of Beverly Hills’ natural light as possible. The vitamin D boost from the sunlight helps your body and your brain. You can even use daylight lamps in areas with few windows or no view.

Make Your Home Cozy

These are only a few ideas among hundreds of ways to make your home cozier. If you find yourself wanting more space or a new home that’s already set up in a way you like, talk with a realtor.
