The home office is a necessity in some households and sometimes even requires his and hers to accommodate a two-career partnership.  Designing a masculine home office that is functional and stylish should include elements of organization and personality.

When designing a home office that is masculine, start with a theme or style of decorating.  Tie this in with how he plans to use the office.  For example, the office may be used simply as a place to take care of household business or it may be for working on client projects.

Organization is critical for any office.  In addition to a desk, an additional workspace may be required.  Space should be designated for filing important papers.  Shelving can be installed for housing books.  The desk should accommodate items than need to be at the ready with easy access.  A place for a computer and any related components needs to be planned.

When it comes to decorating styles, these can vary widely.  Some men may prefer a traditional look, with dark wood, bold furniture pieces and leather.  On the other end of the spectrum, a man may prefer something very minimal and streamlined or something to appeal to the artistically inclined.

Accessories should be used to enhance the masculine home office.  They should make the person who will be using the office comfortable and at home.  For the nautical enthusiast, perhaps model sailboats, antique navigational instruments, or tailoring the office to resemble a ship’s quarters.

Other possible masculine office styles include industrial, sports or wild game.  This room should not only be functional and comfortable but should reflect the personality of the man who will be using it.  Whether or not he intends to meet with clients in the office will also dictate how the décor should be chosen.

The masculine home office should be a place that a man can comfortably and efficiently work, whether alone or with clients.  The office should appeal to his sense of style and be well organized.  It should be a place that reflects his work and his personality.
