For those who work from home, a cosy and comfy home office is a must. And if you have ever worked from home, you would know how your home office design can directly influence your productivity levels through the day! 
In short, a well-designed home office needs to be functional but also comfortable. Plus, it should be a reflection of your own personality, and not feel too much like a corporate office setup. While you could buy readymade home office furniture at most stores today, DIY ideas are a lot more fun! Here are some inspiring DIY chic home office ideas for you to try.
1. The Desk
A stylish yet comfortable home office begins with the right desk. It’s easy to find a modular office desk or computer table at any furniture store, but restoring an old vintage wooden table and transforming it into a bright decor accent for your home office is even better! If you have an old table lying around that looks dated, pick a trendy paint colour and give it a quick facelift. It makes for a wonderful weekend DIY project while you also get to reuse an old item that is in perfect working condition.

2. The Chair
A comfortable work chair is a MUST if you want to comfortably spend hours working away in your home office, without having to deal with back pains and aches. But if a standard office chair is too boring for your style persona, reupholstering an old office chair into a fun, playful design is an easy option! A lot of offices re-design their interiors from time to time and sell all working furniture pieces at throw away prices. Grab one of these high-quality chairs and give it a personalized makeover with a pretty printed upholstery fabric and coat of fresh paint.

3. The Storage
No one likes to see stainless steel filing cabinets in a beautifully designed home. Yet, the truth is that these are actually easier to find than pretty filing cabinets and a lot more functional and roomy for all paperwork to be sorted, filed and locked away carefully. If you have an old steel filing cabinet, think of it as a blank canvas for a creative makeover! Use paint or wallpaper to transform the piece into a work of art over a weekend!

4. The Organising
Now this is where you can have the most fun. There are a plethora of ways to customize organising for your home office, so buying a new bookrack is not your only option. Get truly creative and transform an old replaced louvered window shutter into a mail/file organizer. Or, clip together shoe boxes to create a low height open book and file storage rack. You can also use a simple canvas organizer for sorting mail, or frame a pegboard and hang it above the desk to hold small items like tape, scissors, stationery, keys to the filing drawers and more.
