Are you ready for a new home office? Or maybe just a refresh? What if you could have your workspace designed by a professional, and all you had to do was order a few things online and set it all up?

How Do I Furnish My Office On A Budget?

With so many of us working from home and needing better workspaces, I’m putting together some easy-to-replicate modern home offices that can be adapted to many different spaces.

And I’m only using budget-friendly products available from my favorite online retailers- namely Target, Amazon, Wayfair, AllModern, Overstock, Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and World Market.

And did I mention these home office design ideas are VERY affordable?

Whether you need a large L-shaped desk, a home office for two or more, a sit-stand desk, or a workspace to fit in a tiny nook, I’ve got you covered. And if you don’t see one that works for you here, come join my Facebook group and I will help you figure it out.

What Should You Have In Your Home Office?

The basic things every home office needs are

And depending on your needs and space, I recommend having a bookshelf and/or file cabinet, possibly a pegboard or wall organizer, indoor plants, art, and a rug to pull it all together.

If you have the space, a comfy lounge chair with an ottoman wouldn’t hurt either. And of course a good floor lamp to provide reading light.

L-Shaped Desk Home Office Ideas

L-Shaped Desks are great because they give you a ton of workspace within a relatively small footprint. Plus you can put the desk in the corner, which frees up wall space for bookshelves or file cabinets.

But traditional L-shaped computer desks often have bulky bookshelves attached and just look dark and massive. Lighten the look with a simple, clean-lined desk, and mount calendars, bulletin boards, and pencil cups on the wall to keep the desktop clear of clutter.
