Home Office Wall Décor Ideas

In recent years, modern workplace décor has evolved from a utilitarian look to a more creative approach.

You can combine different frame styles, choose a variety canvas prints, and even include personal photos. Add an urban touch to your space by celebrating your favorite city with a multi-panel skyline print. Use this as the base for your vision board/wall of memories.

Office Wall Décor: Size Guide

Another consideration when selecting office wall décor is the wall-to-canvas size ration. Follow these tips from our Ultimate Wall Art Size Guide to select the best dimensions for your office:

“Your wall art should take up about 60% to 75% of the total empty wall space, not including the area covered by moldings or furniture. The first step is to measure the height and width of the wall. Now, multiply the measurements by both 0.6 and 0.75. As a result, you will get the best range of canvas sizes to suit the space.”

Large Office Wall Art

Make sure the canvas you choose is large enough to look proportionate in relation to your furniture: 

“Large wall art that you want to hang over furniture, such as a desk, sofa, or built-in countertop, should be between 2/3 and 3/4 of the furniture’s overall width. Use this example as a reference to determine your ideal size print: If your piece of office furniture is 6 feet wide, multiply it by 0.66 and 0.75. You would need a canvas between 3.96 feet and 4.5 feet wide for the best fit.”

Office Home Décor: Greenery

Breathe life into your office and increase your productivity at the same time. Consider adding houseplants to create a clean, organic look in your home office. A lovely plant or potted greenery will keep you feeling refreshed while purifying the air quality of your workspace. You can place a tiny glass vase on the desk, or a tall floor vase near your working area. Plants transform an otherwise boring home office into a peaceful and tranquil paradise.

Light & Bright Office Décor

One of the best home office ideas for small spaces is to let in the maximum amount of natural light. Sunlight makes space feel more expansive, and it connects you to the great outdoors. Natural light also reduces the chances of headaches and eye strain. Ideally, position your desk directly in front of a window to avoid a backlit glare on your monitor. If you don’t have an abundance of natural light, you can add warm-toned lamps for a softer alternative to overhead lighting.

Homey Furniture for Your Office

No matter your decor style, go for home office furniture that makes you feel comfortable during long hours. Your desk, chair, and storage should be cozy in addition to looking stylish. Before buying furniture, consider both beauty and functionality. Home office furniture should also complement the other rooms in your house. For a traditional décor, go with warm wood, comfy chairs, and loveseats. A contemporary home office can have modern metal furniture, as long as you test it out for the comfort factor first!

Painting Your Office Walls

When it comes to painting your office walls, the theory is simple: choose the colors that you love! Forget bland shades like beige and bright white, and try something that gets your work motor humming. For some people, cheery shades like lime green and orange do the job. Others may prefer a soft grey or botanical green for a calming approach.
