Solid wood home office
Design your solid wood home office individually and productively. We tell you what you should look out for when buying furniture for your home office and what makes wood such a special raw material.
Sustainable designer office furniture made of wood
Certified solid wood is a renewable raw material that scores with great durability. This is doubly sustainable: you buy office furniture that will be with you for a long time. Solid wood lasts for years and can be easily repaired in the event of an emergency.
Workroom furniture made of solid wood has another advantage: it is timelessly beautiful and creates a feel-good atmosphere. This is more than important in the home office. The classic office furniture style is made warmer by the wood. Moreover, real wood has many good properties and can even regulate the room climate.
How to furnish your solid wood study cleverly
Whether you have your own study or a workspace in the living room or bedroom: To ensure that productivity and creativity bubble up, there are a few basic things you should pay attention to.
But with order please
In a sustainable home office, the desk makes up the foundation. Make sure that there is enough space for one or more screens. You should also have everything you need on a daily basis close at hand.
Solid wood desks usually have standard sizes. If the space situation requires it, you can consider whether a made to measure table makes sense for you. Folders, boxes and books can be stored in a office shelf. The advantage of open shelving formats: You can use them directly as room dividers.
Wood type and wood colour - a lot of choice
Your decision has been made: you want a solid wood home office. But which type of wood and which wood colour are best suited? That depends on your taste. While pine looks more lively due to its grain, office furniture made of wild oak is somewhat more elegant.
Do you love the clean Scandinavian style? Then go for white glazed furniture. They are also not too bulky and make the room seem airier and larger. If you are setting up a work area in the living room or bedroom, you have two options.
Firstly, you keep everything tone in tone and base the choice of furniture on the existing furniture. Secondly, you create a optical contrast and keep the work area in a different colour.
Ergonomics and health in the home office
Aesthetics is one thing. The other is health. Because office furniture should also be functional and easy on the back.
When furnishing your home office with solid wood, make sure that the furniture is flexible. If you sit a lot, you should sit as dynamically as possible and change your working position again and again. With a height-adjustable desk, you can alternate between standing and working, which relieves the strain on your back and strengthens your muscles.
The office chair is just as important. Invest in a model that suits you and your needs. It should not only be height-adjustable, but also flexible in inclination and swivel.
Did you know: You sit perfectly when the angle at the elbow between the lower and upper arms and at the knee between the lower and upper thigh is 90°.
Your eyes will be grateful
It is best to place the monitor between 50 and 80 cm away from you. The top edge of the monitor should be at about eye level, so that you look down slightly when working and your spine is straight.
You can relieve the strain on your eyes if you adjust the contrast on the screen well and use a desk lamp with bright but not blinding light. With an illuminance of at least 500 lux you are doing everything right.
