The Block 2023 | Home Office | Winners Steph & Gian

Home Office Week on The Block:
Top Tips to Shine Bright

Week Three on The Block, and it’s all about the home office! Riding the waves of their recent successes (or setbacks) from the prior week, every team showcased rooms that beautifully merged design with utility. However, when the dust settled, it was Steph and Gian's airy and luminous workspace that clinched the victory.

Crafting the Perfect Home Office

A well-thought-out home office is more than just a workspace; it’s a sanctuary for productivity, creative, and balance. Blending the comforts of home with the functionality of an office can redefine the way you perceive work. Why should your home office be any less inviting than the other rooms in your house? The answer is, it shouldn’t!

So, what does it take to create a home office that stands out and functions efficiently? Here are our top three tips, inspired by the action on The Block:

1. Flexability is Key: Workspaces and Storage

The essence of a practical office lies in its adaptability. Having multiple spaces to perform varying tasks makes all the difference. From a spacious desk to handle your daily work to a dedicated spot for presentations (especially if you have a TV in the room), diversity is king. As one of the judges commented, "You've got two desks and then you can sit here and do presentations because there's obviously a TV." Moreover, ample shelving and storage keep the clutter at bay, ensuring your workspace remains organised and conducive to productivity.

2. Versatility Meets Ambiance: A Space that Adapts

Your home office isn’t just a place for work; it’s a sanctuary where creativity flourishes. At The Blue Space, we appreciate the subtle charm of the neutral palette chosen by Steph and Gian’s winning room. In fact, you can shop for paint, timber flooring, and blinds and curtains by colour, ensuring that you select a shade that perfectly complements your vision. A harmonious blend of soft tones can metamorphose your room into a welcoming retreat, reigniting your motivation daily. Why stop at just an office? Consider integrating a media room or even a chic spare bedroom with a foldout sofa. With the right design touches, you’ll create an environment that’s not just functional, but also a continuous source of inspiration.

3. Let There be Light: Illuminate Your Potential

Never underestimate the power of lighting in a home office. A good balance between natural sunlight, overhead fixtures, and task lighting can revolutionise your work environment. Light not only affects our mood but also our efficiency. So, invest in that window, choose the right lamps, and let your workspace shine! Looking to learn more about lighting design?
