Tips for Your Home Office

More and more, people are working from home. Whether you're with a company who has embraced the benefits of telecommuting or you've started your own home-based business, you need a home office that's configured for creativity and productivity. Here are a few tips for setting up an office that will work for you:

Get the Right Furniture
An office isn't much of an office if it doesn't have at least a few pieces of essential furniture. You don't have to try to cram an executive desk into a closet-sized space, but you do need something that can at least function as a desk, along with a chair at the bare minimum. You can do a lot with quality used furniture, and vintage furniture can add a lot of fun and flare to the room. Just make sure whatever you choose works for what you need.

Invite Creativity Home Office Decor in Austin
Even if you only have a small section in the corner of a room, you can personalize your home office space to encourage creativity. Choose an interesting wallpaper to serve as the backdrop for your desk. Add a whimsical desk lamp for a bit of fun. Install floating shelves to house items that speak to your inner creativity for inspiration. Add splashes of color to keep the space fresh and exciting.

Maximize Productivity
Try not to design an office where it feels like the walls are closing in on you. Good lighting and open spaces are best for maximizing your productivity, and you can achieve this no matter how much space you have by not trying to put too much stuff in too small of a place. Many of the things you do to encourage creativity will also serve to increase your productivity. The biggest tip, though, is to make sure you have everything you need at arm's reach and don't allow clutter to take over.

Check Out Our New Online Store!

At Home Consignment Center in Austin, we already provide a rich and unique selection of vintage home furniture, gently used but like-new furniture, estate jewelry, consignment engagement rings, and much more. Now we've added another way for you to shop deals so good you can hardly believe they're true, all right from the comfort of your own home via our online store. What's more is that it's kind of like having VIP access to savings. Check it out!

Unique, Hand Picked Products You Won't Find in Our Stores
Like many items on our showroom floor, most of the items in our online store are not technically used at all, but rather overstock items and merchandise returns. However, because they are not in absolutely "perfect" condition, or because they've been in someone's house for a time, they must be labeled as used furniture .

Home Consignment Center Online Store

That means you get amazing deals on items that no one would ever guess cost you so little.

In addition, we hand pick the items that we add to our online store for their uniqueness and beauty. While some places put the same stuff on their website as they have on the floor, we provide you with a unique shopping experience by making our online selection exclusive to the web.

Available Only Online for One Month or Until They Sell Out
In addition to exclusivity, the items you'll see in the online store also feature a bit of urgency. We only make them available for one month…if they last that long! Many items sell out within hours or days of having been listed. We never know how many of any one particular item we'll get until it's here, which makes for a thrilling experience when it's possible that you're getting the only one or last one like it!

After you've shopped around our online store, drop by and see us in person at Home Consignment Center. You'll love our wide selection of unique home furniture, estate jewelry, and other items for your home. You can also give us a call at (512) 346-2900 with any questions.
