Office Wallpaper – Inspiring Office Decor Ideas for a Motivating Workspace

15 July 2021


Choosing an office wallpaper is an important decision as more people than ever now work from home. Some divide their time between home and an office, while others have permanently switched. Despite this, not everyone has a home office. Some may need to convert a spare room or garden room into an office.

If that sounds familiar, you may be faced with the task of redecorating before you can move in your computer equipment and other items. Fortunately, this is easier to do than you’d think, thanks to our impressive range of home office wallpaper you can choose from. There is no need for your office to be an afterthought, as you’ll see here in our WFH wallpaper guide!


Creating your workspace with the perfect office wallpaper

It’s easy to think the most crucial element of your home office is the equipment you’ll use in it. You’ll likely need a computer and associated paraphernalia, along with a desk and comfortable chair. You may need other supplies depending on the type of work you do. However, you’re going to be using the room for several hours a day, so the surroundings you are working in are equally as important.

Abstract and geometric designs work wonderfully well as in a home office. The abstract nature of this type of home office wallpaper ensures it is not a distraction. If you chose an office wallpaper design with birds, flowers, or other specific elements, you may find yourself looking at the design when you should be working! If that is the case, it could better to choose office wallpaper that doesn’t show anything specific in the design.

Choose a WFH office wallpaper that keeps you motivated

Achieving a professional tone is also important. If you’re working from home, you’re not likely to have any clients visiting, but you should still set the mood in your office. That’s why choosing office wallpaper is so important. You can also claim the freshly redecorated room as your own rather than keeping the feel of a spare room. If you need it as a spare room, you can always include a sofa bed in there for occasions when it is needed. That way, you can still maximize the use of the space without losing any functionality. It also gives you somewhere else to sit for a change of look or to enjoy a quick coffee break while pondering over your next task.

It’s a sensible idea to consider the size of the room you’re using as your home office too. A larger room can use either light or dark wallpaper, while a small box room is going to look smaller still if you go for a dark design. Keeping things light with a simple geometric wallpaper pattern may be more suitable. That said, think about the light source and how much sun the room gets during the day. You can get away with darker shades if the room receives plenty of light throughout your working hours. You can, of course, add spotlights or a desk lamp to help if you really want a darker office wallpaper – perhaps something with an abstract design that flows from one shade to the next.

Some geometric wall mural designs have a 3D element involved too. While they’re not textured, the pattern makes it appear as if the design is coming out from the wall. That type of wallpaper design doesn’t always work in other rooms in the home, but you can afford to be a little daring with office wallpaper. Make working from home something to look forward to if you can.

Choose a home office wallpaper that makes the space your own

This is your chance to decorate your home office with an office wallpaper design you may not think of using elsewhere in your home. Be bold – this is one room where you can really let your character show. If you want somewhere cozy to go to each day, choosing an office wallpaper that is far removed from anything else you’d choose gives you that important divide between work and home life. You can close the door on your home office at the end of the day, so make it different in there. Choose something dynamic and bold. Think about textured or patinated designs – something off the wall to go on the wall, perhaps?

If you’re using computer equipment and other similar items during the day, as many WFH people do, a modern office wallpaper is perfect to support this. Of course, while geometric designs are ideal in this scenario, you can also go for something abstract that uses several colors and shades in the same paper. Be inspired – keep an open mind to think about office wallpaper possibilities you may ignore when decorating another room. It could lead to a delightful discovery for your workspace.

Selecting the right office wallpaper to get the perfect work/life balance

Keeping clutter to the minimum in your home office helps make it more inviting too. This can also make it look stark, though. The antidote is to go for a more dynamic wallpaper that catches the eye, giving the room character and adding a professional yet appealing tone.

Ideally, you want your home office space to feel and look different from all other rooms in your home. Choosing a modern wall mural or office wallpaper is the perfect way to achieve this aim. It shouldn’t feel as if you’re in another part of your home. Selecting a different home office wallpaper design helps to create that clear divide you are looking for.

So what does your favorite home office wallpaper look like? 

If you’re choosing an office wallpaper as you are switching to working from home, whether by choice or circumstances, it’s easy to focus on the practicalities. Yet you should also make your chosen space one you’ll enjoy visiting each day. Even if you don’t have a dedicated room to use, you could still redecorate a section of another room to use for this purpose. An office wallpaper mural would work well for this, used on just one wall (or part of a wall) to give you the divide you’re searching for.

Think about your home office wallpaper as the beginning of your WFH lifestyle. It is one of the best ways to create that divide between work and play each day.
