How to Incorporate Natural Stone into Your Home Office

Working from home lets you ditch the commute and save time each day. But making sure that your home office is unique and fosters a sense of productivity is an absolute must. While the right desk setup and chair can help you stay focused on your work, it’s far easier to stay productive when you enjoy the room you’re working in. Incorporating natural stone elements into your office is a great way to make your space feel like your own. Here are a few easy ways to use stone in your home office.

Upgrade Your Flooring
If you’re like most homeowners, you didn’t pay close attention to the flooring in your home office when you first set it up. After all, it’s a private space that guests likely won’t see. But sticking with dingy carpets and underwhelming materials can make your office feel drab. Worse, keeping older flooring clean can be tough which can leave you wanting to work elsewhere. 

Upgrade your flooring to natural stone tile like slate, granite, marble, or even sealed pavers. Once in place, the floor will be easier to keep clean and will elevate the look of your office. Don’t worry—you can always add throw rugs and area rugs to help dampen the noise and provide a bit of warmth to the space.

Invest in an Accent Wall
Artwork can be distracting and hanging photos in your office may not be ideal if you want to maintain your family’s privacy during video calls with clients. But that doesn’t mean you can’t add color and texture to your space. You just need to get a bit creative. Adding an accent wall is a great place to start, and the options are limitless. Create a warm and welcoming look with limestone or decorative ledgers. Add brightness with marble tile. Or add color and pizzazz with porcelain tile. 

Ultimately, you’ll want to consider the look you’re trying to achieve as you start looking for the right type of materials. Natural stone will typically be darker than porcelain tiles, but it can add more depth to the space. 

Add a Built-In Desk with a Stone Top
If you’re not happy with your current desk setup, consider building a permanent addition in your home office. A built-in desk with a stone top is a great way to make the space more elegant and gives you complete control over the dimensions of your workspace. That means you’ll be able to choose one that’s the exact width, height, and depth for your needs and your working style. 

You may also be able to replace your current desktop with a natural stone slab if you’re happy with your setup. Just make sure your desk’s frame can hold the added weight.
