As technology improves, more and more people have the ability to work from home. Working from home allows individuals to save time, energy, and money on their commute. Whether your office allows you to work from home or you want a space to work on the computer after hours, an aesthetic workspace is a crucial piece of your productivity. While a cluttered and unappealing workspace makes you feel overwhelmed and unproductive, an organized, sleek, and beautiful space will make you inspired and more efficient during the day.  

Creating a home office can seem like a daunting task. There are a lot of pieces to consider, including a desk, technology, additional furniture, and accessories. The Vintage Mill Werks team is here to help offer some of our guidance.  

The Perfect Desk 

Arguably the most important investment while creating your home office is the perfect desk. The desk is the foundation of your office set up. We recommend selecting a desk that really fits in with your style preferences. At Vintage Mill Werks, we offer high-quality handmade solid wood office desks that look good in any space. If you are looking for a desk that offers a large amount of storage, we recommend our Cardiff executive desk. We recommend our Cardiff corner desk for those looking to create an at-home corner office. Each of our desks offers a generous amount of workspace, which makes your set up feel less cluttered.  

The perfect desk should also fit your existing or desired color scheme. All our furniture is offered in a large range of finishes, making it easy to find one that fits your needs. For a versatile desk, we recommend choosing one with a neutral hue, such as natural wood, black, brown, or white. If you want a pop of color for creativity, opt for a more vibrant finish such as blue, turquoise, red, etc.   

Updated Tech 

To create your home office, you will need to make the space functional as well as aesthetic. To ensure that you are as productive as possible, we recommend updating your tech. If you have an old computer, you probably experience buffering or freezing while working. This can throw you off your groove. If you find that you are constantly having to switch back and forth between windows or apps, we recommend adding an additional display or opting for one with more screen real estate. Being able to work with tabs side by side makes your process much easier and much more enjoyable.  


No home office is complete without proper accessories. Adding greenery, such as a succulent, can help increase productivity and your mood. Keep the space feeling comfortable by adding photos, lighting, and other memorabilia that is important to you and fits with the design of your space. Adding touches of accessories can take your set up to the next level and make it more enjoyable to spend time there.
