Pre-pandemic, you would spot home offices in selective flats, mostly belonging to the elite or business class. In a year, this has all changed and the concept has become somewhat democratic. As most people are working from home, an office or study room has become an inevitable part of the house. Even Livspace designers have been working on some pretty and functional study room designs in their projects. 

If you are still working from your couch and just browsing for office or study room designs, we will make it come true. Here is a curated list of the latest study room designs by Livspace. 

But first, let’s get to the basics:

How Can You Design Your Study Room?

Well, there is no hard and fast rule when it comes to setting up a study room. But there are a few things you must take into consideration:

Space and furniture are the most important aspects to consider

#1: The space

For an ideal study room design, choose an area that gets ample light, is spacious and away from household activities. For this, a spot near the window is best. Make a note of the dimensions too to get perfectly fitting furniture.  

#2: The colour 

Neutral, white and pale colours are best when it comes to study room interiors as it calms the mind and results in enhanced productivity. 

#3: The furniture

The essential furniture that you need to get is a desk and office chair. They must comply with your working style. You are going to use the office chair more than you intend to, so invest in a durable, ergonomic and stylish one.  

Pro-tip:
For an average person, the height of a study table should be 28 inches, and the chair should be at 18 inches.

#4: The storage and organisers

To maintain a neat and clutter-free space, invest in storage units and organisers. Efficient and space-saving storage options are abundant. So, choose the one that ticks all your boxes.

#5: The lighting 

Keep your energy and productivity levels up with proper lighting. Natural light is most preferred, but if that’s not possible, have a combination of lighting options such as lamps, pendant lights, recessed lights etc.

#6: The accessories 

Personalise your workspace with artwork and accessories, but ensure that you don’t clutter. Feel free to skip this step if you are not into accessorising.

Now that you know what goes into a simple study room design take a look at our gallery for inspiration.

A wall-mounted table, two chairs and a floating storage unit is all it took to create this stylish space. Notice that the floating shelf also has a built-in lamp, so lighting for those long nights is sorted too.
