Staging Your Office

The work from home phenomenon that we thought would only last a couple of months, has now become a long-term situation for thousands. Some major companies have even closed their office doors making work from home permanent.

An office is a luxury not everyone can afford to have. Whether you lack the space or inspiration, staging an office for work from home is difficult. At HSA we’ve already given our tips for staging your video conference background but this article will help you beyond the screen. Use our tips to stage a commute free dream office, just within the next door.

Inviting Chair

When you walk into an office, the first thing everyone notices is the chair. A powerful, comfy inviting chair will make you want to sit at the desk all day long, which with work from home hours all over the place, this may be the case.

To make things even easier for you, we’ve included our recommendation! The Made Flynn Office Chair in Persian grey is enough to convince anyone to sit at their desk.

Functional Decor

Functional decor brings life to an office, without cluttering up the space. If you combine decor and functionality you get the best of both worlds to help you prosper. A glass calendar to finish off a wall but keep you organized, an extravagant pen holder or a floating shelf that looks good and helps clear your desk. Who said functionality had to be boring?

Declutter, declutter, declutter

Declutter is home staging 101 which we try to engrain into everyone’s brains. The decluttered surfaces create a calm mind. However, in the office think of furniture decluttering. The less furniture in an office, the better, allowing the desk to be the main character.

Speaking of the desk being the main character, we are currently loving the Calia Desk from John Lewis & Partners in dark wood. The storage space will help you keep the work surface decluttered and bring attention to the desk.


Colour, especially a pop of colour, is something home stagers love. However, in the office, we think neutral is the choice. A neutral colour palette will keep the mind calm, allowing the creativity to flow and banish any overwhelming feelings.

Motivational Prints

There’s nothing like a bit of motivation surrounding you when you’re working. Prints can help you when you’re at the last straw. Have them in front of you so you can look up and be reminded of why you’re doing what you’re doing and that things will get better.

Here’s an example from Desenio, their “keep going, keep growing” print will help anyone get through those last couple hours. Notice how it fits in with our neutral colour palette tip too!

Weappreciate not every home has space. That’s why our tips are space-friendly as whether you have a big room available or simply a desk in the corner, you can make it work!
