Home visit: Set up a creative office space


If you spend your day in your home office, you need the place to work for you. See how our interiors stylist Asa Dyberg helps this entrepreneur and crafter to make her home office organised and inspiring.

IKEA Ideas- Home visit: Set up a creative office space

Toni’s desk used to be cramped, cluttered and lacked any clear organisation. Interiors stylist took three simple steps to sort it out:

1. Maximise the space

Sometimes, a small space can take big furniture. Asa decided that a bigger desk would not only give Toni more room to work but also be a better fit proportionally and help streamline the space. Instead of a traditional desk with legs, Asa combined the LINNMON table top with ALEX drawers – they double as legs and turn the ‘dead’ space under Toni’s desk into smart, closed storage.

2. Organise the small things.

Toni is inspired by what she sees – cards, notes, badges. Adding the VÄGGIS pinboard and SKÅDIS pegboard creates neat display areas for her current inspirations, as well as a place to keep important notes in sight.


3. Boost your lighting.

Positioning a desk by a window takes advantage of the feel-good benefit of natural light, but it’s important to ensure there are also good task lamps, so light can be directed exactly where it’s needed when you work.
