Study Room Ideas Perfect for Productive Work Days

A proper study space—whether a home office, lofted area, or a quiet nook—is more important than ever. Now that working from home is the norm for many people, what may have been an underutilized study is now imperative to everyday life. Whether your space is airy and sun-filled or dark and serious, there are plenty of ways to transform your study room into an inspiring area where you'll speed through your work to-do list.




We’re all-too-familiar with Zoom meetings, and all-too-familiar with blah Zoom backgrounds, too.

Avoid boring your meeting mates by purposefully considering what’s behind your desk chair. It is very important to some clients to have an attractive Zoom background for frequent work-from-home days.

Tall shelves to house accessories and books, with utilitarian storage in the lower cabinets. This is a perfect example of a useful and attractive backdrop for your study.



It doesn't get much cozier than this. Because the space is small and simplistic. A built-in book wall was important to add movement and interest to your space. While you may not want to work a 9-5 in a loft space, it makes for a spectacular study (and snoozing) spot.



A cozy study corner needed to fulfill a few purposes, including hosting the homeowner’s colleagues for work retreats, as well as family and friends throughout the year.

Utilize every nook of this transitional-style home to create spots that make perfect sense for comfortably settling in with a laptop or with a book or journal.

Take a spot, for instance, which includes an academic-looking green velvet lounge chair that feels equally professional and relaxing. Who would not want to settle into that?


There are plenty of fabrics you can consider to cozy up your study room, but leather is always foolproof.

 Because of its soft yet structured qualities, leather can be both chic and cozy. Select leather armchairs and a leather desk to anchor your handsome study. Mission accomplished.


If you're working with a wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling window situation in a study room (lucky you), keep the room's focus on the view. In chic yet relaxed offices we really want to embrace the architectural simplicity and beauty of the window.

To do that, focus on furniture and light fixtures that don’t detract from the view, but instead enhanced it. Think clean lines, natural materials, neutral tones, and soft textures.
