Home Office Design & Inspiration for the Co-Working Couple

September 10, 2016

Tired of brushing elbows with your significant other in an uninspired home office? Does he dream of a rustic hangout with exposed brick and metal shelving, while you prefer a modern, polished oasis with inspiration boards in color-coordinating frames? To keep the peace, and more importantly, the spark in your relationship, it’s time to get creative in your shared space. These co-working ideas for couples from Brit + Co inspire endless creativity and, if you’re lucky, maybe even a little compromise.


1. Brighten Up: If you’re struggling to find a space to put those lamps, try hanging pendant lights above each work station instead.


2. Different Seating: Whether you’re creating a workspace for the kids to do homework or for you and your work partner, everyone feels special when they get their own unique seat.


3. Opposite Directions: If staring at each other from across your desks is proving to be too distracting, put the them on opposite sides of the room.


4. One Desk: If you get to work from home with your partner on a daily basis, try to create a space — no matter how small — that is dedicated solely to work stuff. That way, it’s easier to call it quits at the end of the day and still have a life together.


5. Corner Office: Nobody puts Baby in the corner… well, in this case, it’s more than okay. Create two workspaces in one by simply putting a large corner desk in an open area of your home.


6. Size Matters: Before you choose a desk for your home office, make a list of all the things you need it to hold. Include everything from important files and folders to your monitor, keyboard and mouse, and don’t forget your coffee cup.
