Plan the furniture according to your activities
It is essential that, before setting up your home office in the bedroom, you list all the tasks and activities that you are going to carry out in this space, and that you assess the support and storage space you will need. Based on this, it will be easier to size and buy the furniture. In this room, the solution was to create an aerial piece of furniture with doors and use loose drawers (great for storing documents). Also assess whether you don’t need lockable drawers for important and confidential documents.
Ideal bench height
Ideal desk position
Depending on your profession and the activities you do, it may be a good idea to position your desk under the window to get plenty of natural light. If you are an illustrator, artist, or craftsman, this tip could be invaluable to you. In addition, the bench positioned below the window allows contact with the street and, especially for those who work all day in this space, it is also a decompression point.
Optimal bench depth and width
Ideally, the bench should be at least 1.00m long and 50cm deep. So you can use the notebook in comfort, support a lamp, and organize your work materials.
Assess the need for a support piece of furniture
Some people use the home office in their bedroom for a few hours and not every day of the week, as they have a fixed work space in another location. In these situations, a lot of support space and storage for materials and documents is generally not required. However, if you decide to take your office to the bedroom at once, it is interesting to think about furniture and support niches to store everything you need.

Home office chair: how to choose
It is important that you make a brief calculation of how many hours you will use the chair and what activities you will develop on the bench, so that you can identify the ideal chair model for you. A basic criterion: it is important that she is comfortable.
If your workbench is large and you will be using the space daily to work for long periods of time, it is recommended that the chair has casters. Chair arms also help to provide more comfort, and are a very personal choice. If this is your option, pay attention to the relationship between the chair’s arm height and the lowest bench height, to ensure ergonomics and functionality. There are options on the market that allow you to adjust the height of the chair’s armrest.
Corner bench: a solution for those with little space
An excellent study table solution for a small room is to use it in the corner of the room. It’s probably not very spacious, but for answering emails and doing small everyday activities, it’s perfect! If you choose a home office in the corner room, remember to choose a chair that is a little smaller so that it is not a barrier to circulation in the room.
Glass bench and shelves
This home office in the corner room also bet on a glass countertop. Glass is an interesting material because it brings much lighter to the environment, due to its transparency, in addition to being a practical material to clean.
Think about the shots
This home office in the super feminine bedroom, with straight lines and the warmth of wood, was amazing and functional. In addition to the bench and the side support, the drawers and the niche for the printer make the space even more practical and organized.
If you have a printer in your home office in the bedroom, remember to leave it near a wall socket or, in the case of custom furniture, run the wires behind the furniture so that you can turn on your computer and all the equipment. .
Invest in lighting
It is important that your room has indirect light and a warmer tone, but the light indicated to stimulate productivity at work is just the opposite: a neutral and direct light. This home office in the single bedroom invested in lighting to create different scenes, and that makes all the difference in an environment with two uses. The headboard light created a cozier scene, while the recessed lighting in the ceiling provides a brighter and more awake environment.
Partition for privacy and coziness
This is the ideal solution for a home office in the modern bedroom! If you have the space, it is well worth investing in a divider between these two environments. It doesn’t have to be something totally closed and heavy. In this room, the partition does not go to the ceiling and is loose in the middle of the room, and also serves as a panel for the TV. If you choose this solution, remember that power points are needed on the floor to turn on the TV and other equipment.
Modernity and style: hollow partition
These home office furniture created a division between the closet and the work environment, which left the room with a modern and uncluttered look. Especially in small rooms, it is important to think of hollow elements that provide a feeling of spaciousness and lightness.

How to reconcile all this? Use the workbench for work as well as a dressing table, and place the TV just above it. Another tip is to use part of the space below the counter for small drawers, which are used to store papers, pens, or makeup.
Study table for small room
Bench with trestle base
For those who like practical solutions and getting their hands dirty, it’s worth noting this idea: the legs of the workbench can be made from two trestles.

Wallpaper for home office in the bedroom
The use of wallpaper is a great element to decorate a home office in the bedroom. It is important that the wallpaper matches the other tones and elements of the room, and that the design or texture is not tiring for the eyes.

The wall mirror enlarge the space of the room. The worktop that mixes a metalwork base with an MDF top is a simple solution to make the space lighter and with more personality. The hollow bases and feet give more transparency the feeling of larger spaces.
Decorating with books and travel souvenirs
A beautiful home office decoration in the bedroom is one that matches whoever uses the space. Your bedroom should be a welcoming environment, where you can display your memories and personal objects and, even if you create a workspace inside it, the bedroom should continue to represent your personality. Books and souvenirs are a great tip!
Classic decoration for the home office
It is important that home office decor in the bedroom follows the existing decor and style. Although it’s nice to look for elements that divide and demarcate these two uses, they’re still a single environment, and that’s why it’s nice that they keep the same language in the decoration.
Simplicity that delights
Home office furniture doesn’t always need to be planned. This environment proves that loose pieces, with simple and straight lines can create a light and unusual result.
Intense colors to stimulate the mind

THE ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS
To work in the bedroom you do not need to install an entire office. Especially if the meters are scarce.
